If you are talking about a kitchen faucet. I would guess that you either have WAY too much water pressure or you are missing the little c-ring clip on your spout. Most are round plastic ring with split on one side. Some are metal. They usualy fit in one of the slots on the end of your spout. Hope this helps.

There is a leak where the spray arm connects to the water faucet under the sink. The connection is a snap connection rather than a screw on type.

With this type of faucet when you push the 2 pieces together there should be a small rubber O ring, if this is not in the correct position there won't be a proper seal. If you have some vasalien rub it on the O ring and it should help it fit better, it also should click when you push it together.

Faucet leaks when water is turned on at the spout base. I took the set screw out of the back but can,t remove it to access the orings or seals

better turn off the main line first, screw the ring again putting some extra pressure because usually rings are tighten so have to replace the base of the faucet.

The swing mixer handle has become very stiff. how do i get it off to clean it/

The first solution is of course correct. However I found it almost impossible to remove the spout assembly. It was very stiff and it was difficult to get any leverage to force it off without damaging the finish to the tap as a whole or damaging the sink.

What I found was that if you poured boiling water over the tap/faucet it eased the stiffness and having done this several times - ie about 5 kettle loads of hot water, I managed to remove the spout. It helps if you reconnect the hose directly to the outlet under the sink (ie not via the faucet). THis allows you to run cold water through the tap whilst pourung boiling water over the outside of the tap. The cold water shrinks the copper/brass components whilst the hot water expands the spout assembly.
Once off, it is possible to clean the inside of the assembly to remove corrosion or calcium deposits to say nothing of old "O" rings.

I also used a kettle descaler between dousing with boiling water in the hope that some of it would seep down within the assembly.

It took me three attempts to do this. I was almost going to spend UK pounds 430 or US dollars 670 and buy a new unit. So do not give up and I hope this helps.
It swings backward and forward now perfectly.

I've actually never heard of this problem before. Sounds to me like it is a cheap faucet and replacing it with a higher quality one is the best solution.

Water flow is too powerful..

I got you, you want a screen to be put on the spout!
check the inside of the spout. there may be a internal thread, if it is, then you can get a external thread screen from home depot.

Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister

Your problem is a simple one.

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
  3. Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
  4. If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
  5. If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
  6. Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
  7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.
  1. Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
  2. Reassemble and test.
Problem solved.
