Go to the hardware store and ask for a small set of EZ out bits.
Then you can use a small drill for a 1/4" Deep hole.
This will allow the Ez out bit to grab and you can extract the screw easily.

Tip: Make sure the drill is smaller than the thread portion of the screw you are trying to remove. Roughly HALF the size so you do not drill through the sides. Then after a 1/4" deep hole is made. Take the Ez-out that will fit this hole and tap it a few times into that 1/4" hole to seat. The other end of the ez-out you can use socket, pliers or cresent wrench on.

Alternative: Grab a small punch and make a groove on top of the screw.
You can then tap the top groove counter clockwise and the screw should begin to turn with each tap. Be warned this will often damage the screw badly. But the trick is getting the corroded screw out anyway. Right? :)

Good luck!

How to lift off the handle after the set screw is removed?

it may be corroded on to the square shaft
WD -40 or like type in the screw hole may help but I think a gentle prying with a flat bladed screw drive at the edge of the handle or brute force may be necessary

No--need info on removing handle from Moen 87485 single handle faucet. We have removed the plug button and set screw but the handle will not come off. The handle is corroded through--can it be force

Sometimes there's a small Allen screw on the handle cover. But most likely if you've removed the cap and screw beneath, it's just stuck and will take some jiggling and vertical force.

We have a 2 handle Delta faucet in our bathtub and one leaks. House is 25 years old all the information I can find on Delta is for the single handle type and information would be appreciated

nathanolsen1.gif It probably looks something like this basically front of handle has a cap pops up usually phillip screw after unscrewing that the handle will pull off if its real difficult you may need a handle puller or cut off the handle with saw and replace the stems may just need a gasket but if its that old i recommend buying a whole repair kit that includes handles, stems, seats and will include everything except the seat wrench.

I can't get the screw out of the handle of my delta single handle faucet to change the seats and springs. I think it must be stripped inside the handle.

In most cases you can use a self threading screw and screw it in the top of the stripped screw and slowly turn it out. Might have to use a tiny drill bit to pre drill first.

My lever on my single handle kohler shower faucet is very, very loose. How do I tighten the lever. I don't see any screws or place for an allen wrench

There should be a screw hidden under a cap. depending on the model/style it may be as small around as a pencil diameter or as large as a half dollar (the larger is most common on acrylic handles) Just gently pry this off and you should find a phillips screw underneath.
