SOURCE: how to take handle off of Grohe Lady Lux Cafe-took screw out-handle is stuck

I soaked the connection between the handle and the valve body in a penetrating oil for several hours and eventually used more force than I hoped to use to remove the handle. Once the handle and end cap (part 09 209) were removed, I could see that the valve assembly (part 46 048) was loose which caused water to leak from the seals (part 46 209) between the valve assembly and faucet body. So I tighted the screws that hold the valve assembly to the faucet body and the leaked stopped.

SOURCE: faucet will not pivot

The cap has to come off. I usually use a channel lock pliers with a thick rag on the chrome cap .After the cap comes off you may have to put some kind of lub in it such as silicone spray lub.  Twist the spout back and forth while raising it up. Yes. I may take quite a bit of strength and many many back and forth motions to come loose. After you have it off you wil see the menerial deposits or damaged o-rings causing the lasck of movement. The o-rings are available at most hardware stores or a plumbing supply store for sure.    If the cap cannot come off w/o damage,would you not be willing to replace it anyway,rather than have it stay stationary?

SOURCE: I am trying to remove the pop-up drain

To clean the drain simply remove the packing nut off the back of the pop-up assembly. This is located under the sink itself and will be on the back side of the chrome (might be plastic) pipe coming out of the drain hole. This nut is what is holding the rod in place. When you remove it be sure not to lose the ferule (nylon washer) inside. after the nut is off, you can pull the actual stopper out and have better access to the drain inside. Use a small hair remover (you can buy these at the "depot"), it has a long body with small "spines" coming off the sides to catch hair, to pull out hair. It should be long enough to get into the P-Trap. After you are satisfied you can put the stopper back in. Make sure the hole in the bottom of the stopper is lined up to catch the rod. Reassemble the packing nut with ferule and check for leaks. If you want to take the trap off be sure to have some 'pipe dope' on hand to reseal the threads. Teflon tape is not necessary. Reassemble the trap and check for leaks and you should be good to go. Good luck :).

Cannot remove 1/8" hex nut on handle. I am trying to replace valve control due to a leaky faucet. Nut seems frozen. Mel


A faucet handle? In Automotive?
If you mean a sink faucet, what brand? Is it single lever? On some, it's not a hex; rather a narrow slotted screw.

How do you remove the lever of a kitchen kohler clairette faucet, it seems to be stuck


On the front of the faucet handle, there is a small plastic cover with an emblem on it. Gently pry it off with a sharp knife blade. Next you will notice a small "allen" screw head. Remove it by turning it counter clockwise until it's loose. (lefty loosie - righty tighty) Lift the handle straight up to remove.

I can not get the handles off. there are no screws


There is either a screw under a cap from the top or a set screw from the side. Looked at about 200 Grohe diagrams and they all have that arrangement.

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!


  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    Need to change washer faucet


    Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle


    Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

    Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

    That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

    Problem taking the top cover off the Rohl R77V3SPN one handle faucet


    With a small flat blade screwdriver, carefully remove the red and white plastic button on the front of the faucet. Turn off the water supply. Then, raise the handle like you're turning on the water and move the handle slowly left and right until you can see an Allen screw through the hole where the button was. With the correct size Allen driver, remove the screw and the handle will come off the faucet.
