Question about Hamat 3-2861ST Everest Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet with Lever Handle Stainless...

Open Question

OMy Hamat kitchen faucet (Model 3-2861) sprung a leak under the handle, after removing the hex screw I still can't remove (pull) the 'handle' off to try to replace the washer (if possible) I tried just about everything short of brute force that might either scratch the finish or break off/damage the shaft (I think it's made of plastic)sftly using a small screwdriver between the handle and the 'cap' to pry it off didn't work either.. any suggestions? Could the handle be screw down into the shaft instead? I'm afraid to try it without knowing for fear of breaking the shaft...

SOURCE: I have a Hamat faucet that has low water pressure all of a sudden

I have the exact same faucet from Hamat and I just took it apart ...every last bit....the tabs on each part are notched so when you put it all back again...its pretty easy....I had every single part layed across the table.

(Below is the red neck way....without the special tool to take off the top key part which requires a special T tool)
now for the desembly.... under the handle is the red/blue button...unscrew carefully not to ruin the color...if it does not come out ...pry it out...mine was not so friendly....then take a small hex and stick it in the hole and unscrew a small screw....whalllaaa ...the top is off....now for the only hard part of this whole project....without their special tool your going to have to take a vice grip layed over a cotton cloth and clamp it on the top back side perpedicular....on the actual crome/stainless steel....this part will not be seen from the front.... I did scratch mine a bit ...but dont see it after the fix...remember it under the handle on the backside....then take another vice grip and cloth to the part you stick in the counter....(not the threads of course...just above) then with hulk like procedures your going to give it all.....hold with the left the base vice grip....and with the top ...crank it counter clockwise....again with the vice grip perpendicular ...on the back edge...I had to use a small screwdriver or rod to stick it across the vice grip for leverage.....erggggg....got it.
after that take note of how the part fall out.....eventuallly you might need to take out the cylinder.....remove the hose (did it at begininng) then wiggle....and pull out the cylinder...dont unscrew....back and forth in 10 degree turns as you pull out.....this is not screwed in.....Only One big screw already taken care off... the hoses connected in the interior are tough and for some wierd reason need a 10mm wrench.
Ok good luck....and by the way MINE DID NOT HAVE HOT WIRE...a part of rubber washer came loose from my plumbing under the counter and found its way to block hot water...inside the very core of the faucet....oh well ALLL DONE.... hot water for dishes...for my wife...just kidding.

Hi,

Hamat faucets aren't the kind we come across very often. They are imported from Israel and no instructions are to be had.
They are not too different from other faucets.

I have not had the opportunity to install one of these faucets, so am going by what is the norm and the exploded view. I hope I can help.

From the view, it looks like the check valve is inside the faucet hose. If you have not disassembled that far, don't be afraid to go ahead and take it apart. There isn't much you can do wrong (except maybe to not turn the water off....). Just disconnect your supply hose and go from there. You shouldn't have a problem.

If you have any trouble or questions, please reply back.

Hope this helps. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Don't buy a Hamat, like I did. Hamat is out of business in the U.S. So much for their lifetime warranty. Parts are only available through their former parts distributor, Tapco.

Spray with lubricant and let it work - you may have to spray more than
once - main thing is do not strip the screw head....try a long handled
screw driver.

I want to change the cartridge but am lost as to how the faucet comes apart.


From www.hamatusa.com
Turn off water at supply line. Turn and remove top ring. Remove handle. Remove top half of body of faucet. Remove diverter (using large screwdriver) and replace. Replace body handle and ring.

Let me know if this works or not.

Leaky eurostream kitchen faucet


if its leaking under the handle, all you need to do is remove the blue and red cap on the handle under you will find a 1/8 allen screw, loosen screw and remove handle and tighten the brass nut a little which will seat the packing underneath.
