Question about Danco Clear Faucet Decorator Handles

The handle on my outdoor faucet is broken. I

The handle on my outdoor faucet is broken. I bought a replacement at a hardware store but it was just a tad to small to fit over the stem. The replacement handle was 5/16th. The stem is a little larger than that. I can't find a replacement anywhere. Is there a universal handle out there anywhere?.

Have you checked with a plumbing supply hose if it is a square slot you may could use a handle off a boiler drain for a washing machine .

Check it out if it is a metal red or blue metal it may be the same type used on your washing machine cut off valve

How do I find replacement faucet lever for model #122-434L?


B&K Faucets are, unfortunately, disposable. They are the bottom "economy" line sold at home improvement stores. If you need a new handle, your best bet is to:

a) buy a brand new B&K Faucet and take it apart for parts;
b) take your defective handle into an Ace hardware and try to match the broach with another existing handle.

Kohler sprayer with forte single handle, will not spray well. When sprayer is on the flow to faucet cuts off but there is only a small amount of water coming out the sprayer.


Check to be sure the hose isn't kinked somewhere below the faucet. If there aren't any kinks there is likely debris stuck behind the nozle screen, remove it and clean it- or your handle mechanism is broken. Replacement handles and hoses are fairly inexpensive if you need one they're easy to find at most big hardware stores or on Amazon

How to fix a leaky Moen faucet that leaks at the spout ,which is separate from the handle?


These faucets can leak in three different places:

  1. Internally at the valve seat
    You'll see water dripping from the spout. This means the rubber washer is worn or damaged. To replace the washer, remove the decorative cap from the handle. Remove the retaining screw and pull off the handle. Remove the decorative cover, called an escutcheon, if there is one. Unscrew the packing nut counterclockwise. Unscrew the valve stem and remove it. Remove the screw that holds the rubber washer in place. Because these washers come in many shapes and sizes, you'll want to take the old one to the hardware store and buy an exact replacement. Be sure to buy two washers so you'll have one for the other valve. Replace the washer and reassemble the faucet.
  2. Around the handle
    If you see water coming from below the handle, the packing nut is leaking. Older faucets have a string-like graphite packing material wrapped around the stem. Newer faucets use an O-ring. First try tightening the packing nut clockwise... about one-half turn. If this doesn't stop the leak, remove the packing nut and replace the packing or O-ring; then reassemble the faucet. If the valve is using the graphite packing material, it might be a clue that you should shop for a new faucet.

  3. Between a pivoting spout and the body
    The spout might be held in place with a packing nut, similar to the faucet stem, or it might have a nut at the top of the spout. In either case, remove the spout and replace the packing material or the O-ring seal. Then reassemble the faucet.
Single lever faucets also are known as "washerless" faucets. They are easier to repair than compression faucets after you determine what type of faucet you have. There are three types of washerless faucets: ball, ceramic disk and cartridge.
Leaks are evident in two places... dripping from the spout and seeping from around the spout where it joins the body of the faucet.
Leaks from the spout indicate that the ball, disk or cartridge is leaking. To repair, turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle. The handles on ball-type faucets are held in place with a setscrew that requires an Allen wrench to loosen. Ceramic disk and cartridge-type handles usually are held in place by a screw hidden beneath a cap.
On ball and ceramic disk-type faucets, remove the ball or disk and replace the seals. You can buy replacement kits for these faucets at the hardware store or home center.
On cartridge-type faucets, remove the spout and pull out the retainer clip that holds the cartridge in place. To remove the cartridge, pull on the cartridge stem with a twisting motion. If it resists, install the handle so you can a better grip on the cartridge to pull it out. Take the cartridge to the hardware store or home center and purchase an exact replacement kit.
Reassemble the faucet according to directions.
Leaks at the spout-to-body joint indicate an O-ring failure. Disassemble the faucet as described above. Remove the spout sleeve and replace the O-rings. It's a good idea to replace these seals if you have the faucet disassembled for repair of the ball, disk or cartridge.

You need a faucet handle puller, you can get these at most home center and hardware/plumbing stores.
Once you get the handle and cover off you might just find that the control was never fully mounted.

HI, The tool you are looking for is a Basin Wrench. Google Plumbers tools pictures. I am sorry I can't provide you with a picture myself, kind of new on the computer. Good Luck. Home Depot, Lowe's or a hardware store has them.

Two handle Moen kitchen faucet. Hot side handle


loctite is an excellent product,but you have to have a couple of threads for it to 'lock'! be sure handle is seated[pushed all the way on] or shop a hardware or home improvement store for a replacement screw or a 'self tapping'' screw of the proper size.

Delta Faucet Kitchen Single Pull


Yes, It can be fixed but it isn't a washer. There is a replacement stem for the faucet . They are readily available at most big box stores and possibly the local hardware store. Bring your faucet model number with you.
