There is a home cleaning product called the The Works which will loosen the corrosion around the screw. Then use a screw extractor tool. You can find one at most hardware stores and home centers.
Another solution would be to call Moen Customer Support and ask for a new handle and repair parts for free. The faucet should have a lifetime warranty. When you have the new faucet parts in hand, literally cut the handle off the faucet with a hacksaw or drill the screw out to remove the handle.

There are Allen set screws on each end of the handles (Top/bottom for the refrigerator doors, left/right for the freezer compartment.) These screws are accessed through small holes in the side of the handle with a 2.5 mm (3/32") Allen wrench. There are on the bottom side of the freezer handle as it's installed. There are also mounting brackets under the handle that can be tightened with a 1/4" Allen wrench with the handle completely removed.

For pictures of the handle hardware, see page 9 of the manual for the LFX25975SW. This is page 10 of the pdf here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/2228/LG-Bottom-Mount-Refrigerator-L0906255 . This link should display in your browser.

I hope this helps.

(Allen wrenches (Hex keys) are L-shaped tools with a hexagonal design where it contacts the screw head. You'll need the long side to get into the holes. Do not overtighten the screws - this can strip the threads. Then you'd need to replace the entire handle unless you can work a new screw into the spot.)

How to remove handles on closet door without locking mechanism


Hi Marion- just signed up, you're my first response. First, look at the handles to see what tools are needed, usually a philips head screwdriver and allen wrench. Next, unloosen the set screw enough with the allen wrench to remove the handle, keep set screw in handle, don't remove, next pull handle apart, next remove any hardware attached to door and you should be done. Hope this helps. Thanks, Joe

I have a Moen Faucet I believe a 7065 with a separate spout, lever handle and side spray. I take off the cap and go to remove the Allen screw but it will not turn or come out. My faucet has the water...


If the allen screw will not turn I would put an allen wrench into it and lightly tap it a few times with a hammer, the smaller the better. If the allen screw is stripped I would get a set of easy outs from the Home Depot or other store and use the smallest one to ease the screw out. An easy out works in reverse to the threads in order to get the screw to back out of the hole.

Trying to disassemble Ladylux Cafe faucet. Grohe


If it is just replacing the handle you will only need a smaller screwdriver set (pretty common) and an allen wrench. I don't know exactly what size you need but you can get a set of these wrenches pretty cheap at any tool or hardware store. Basically the tool is a hexagonal rod that is bent in the shape of an "L". You'll need the smaller set for this job sold usually in sets that have a range of sizes from .05" to 3/8" diameter. I would guess your hex nut is 1/8" or less.

On the bottom of the handle between the sink bed and the handle you'll be able to feel a small hole. When you stick the allen wrench in there it should fit snuggly if the allen wrench wiggles a lot go to the next size up. Since the screw is facing up you will pull the other end of the wrench toward you. This will loosen the screw. It will not take a lot of effort so if you have to force it make sure the allen wrench is actually seated. Kind of a pain but you'll have to reposition the wrench as you get it loosened to fully extract the screw.

Once the screw is out the handle will drop down and the cap just pulls off. Assembly is reverse but make sure that your screw is going into the threads without resistance before tightening. This will prevent cross threading.

My handle is loose but I cannot find a tool that will fit the set screw. What is it, what size. Blade screw, Phillips Screw, Hex, torx, what? Moen T2442 single handle shower diverter.


It would be an allen wrench. Any typical multi sized wrench should have the proper sized allen wrench.

The holes can often become filled with grime so be sure to seat the wrench properly to prevent stripping.

Can't remove the chuck retaining screw.


Place drill in vice with chuck in vice facing up . Clamp chuck lightly but with enough force to hold firmly.
put allen wrench in chuck and lightly tap down to make good fit to allen screw head.Clamp chuck jaws down onto allen wrench lightly to hold wrench steady. Take piece of pipe to end of wrench,10".
These chuck screws are tight. Hammer clockwise until screw brakes loose.Open chuck completely and remove screw.Chuck is threaded to spindle shaft . Place allen wrench with long end facing out of tool in chuck and tighten chuck securely. With hammer tap allen wrench sharply counter clockwise ( normal thread.)

Handle Removal on Chateau Style Bathroom Taps


the handle removal is a metric allen wrench some of the cartridge replacements come with an allen head wrench

I always plug the drains and completely remove the allen head screw then the handle comes off
Sometimes you have to pry it gently or take a hammer wrap a towel around the handle where it meets tthe cartridge base and tap up under the handle lightly and it comes out

God Luck
