Question about Delta Faucet Delta 2457 Orleans Two Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray, Chrome
You can't apply any worthwhile heat to try and free this off without causing further damage, but if you have a pipe freezing kit handy you can try freezing it a few times and then pouring boiling water over it to thaw it suddenly. The thermal shock sometimes works but it's not a sure enough thing to be worth specially buying a freezing kit for.
That leaves two other possibilities: drill the screw out and get a replacement (or adapt one from another machine screw) or partially drill it and use a very small stud extractor. If the screw is brass then just drill it out in my experience as stud extractors just don't work on small diameter non ferrous materials.
If you drill the screw out then you need to use a drill bit small enough to go down the centre of the screw without damaging the threads, but large enough to leave it sufficiently thin-walled to be able to collapse inwards when you subsequently winkle it out. Usually I find that a pin punch driven anticlockwise against the thin rim left after drilling does the job.
