Take the stripped handle to a local hardware or home improvement store.

They may be able to find an after market knob or knobs that will work as a substitute - they usually use set screws to hold the replacement knobs in place.

Knob on outside frost free water faucet turns freely


remove the knob.
it might be stripped out. If not, something is broken inside. turn of the water and disassemble until you find the broken part. If it is not the knob, it might be easier to replace the assembly.

Turned on hot water faucet and i can't turn it off. I can rotate the faucet knob back and forth but the water won't turn off. Is the valve stuck open because of too much pressure or something...


With no model number, I will assume that you have a two handle faucett assembly, although they are both about the same. Either the knob and/or srew is stripped in thr stem of the knob. Hopefully the screw is just loose. If this is a sink faucet, you should be able to turn the water off to the faucet in your vanity under the sink. If it's a shower faucet, you will probably have to turn water off to the whole house. Any way, you may be able to get away without having to do this now but, I'd find out where the shut off is nad be ready. You should be able to remove the center part of the knob by getting under it with a small screw driver or butter knife. You should see a screw taht hold the knob on. Hopefully you can get this screw out or, by trying to grt it out, turning counter clockwise, you will turn your water off. If you can't get the screw out, you will have to drill it out, remove the handle, and turn the stem counter clockwise to turn off your water. In ant rate, you will orbably have to replace the valve, unless it was just a loose screw.

hi! if tightening the knob(s), (or if you apply pressure on the knob of the faucet,for the models with no thread for open/close), modify the amount of water leaking ,you need to replace the seats in the faucet. if not ,just replacing the o rings should fix your problem.

Hi hi--
You'll need to rebuild or replace your hot water control stop--that's the valve on the faucet body. If it's a single handle control, you'll need to replace the control cartridge. If the faucet has two knobs, you'll need to locate whatever stem pieces are needed within the hot valve. Sometimes, on two knob faucets, you can get away with simply replacing the rubber pieces inside the control stem. If that is the case, your local hardware store should have manufacturer-specific rebuilding kits available. Be sure to locate the faucet's model name first! That should be written somewhere on the above-sink portion of the faucet body itself, and you should be able to see it without taking anything apart.
--Hope this helps.

they are in there a long time and rust away.as soon as u put a screw driver to it itll strip it anyway then what you gonna do,But try to get it out with a screw driver.i have ad to actaually break the plastic knob off to get it replaced sometimes its easier that way..Then you can use a small pair of lock pliers [channel locks] and get a goos grip on the screw with them loosen up as much as u canturn back in ,work it back and forth after awhile itll come loose..a kmob isnt much.

Compatible replacement handles for Moen Garden Tub faucet


I dont know if moen made chrome handles for that valve back then. If they did then they will probably be lever handles but they wont turn correctly unless you remove the cartridges and turn them. Iwould suggest probably replacing the whole unit.

I have a franke filtered water faucet and it is leaking


I have a similar problem and while I've gotten further along than you have, I still don't have the complete solution. The little "ceramic" disk that says "Franke" on the knob does come off. It's just well glued on and requires destroying two x-acto blades and putting some large chips in the logo disk to get off. Once you get the disk off you'll discover that the knob requires a special tool to remove. I haven't been able to locate one but usually when you buy a replacement washer/gasket set it will come with the special wrench to remove the fastener from inside the knob. So if you locate a faucet repair kit for that faucet, let me know!
