SOURCE: Kohler 10433 wont pivot side

It just needs to be lubed, but when you take apart to do that you my as well put in new O-rings, and get some plumbers lube for the job anything with a petroleum base will not last and well also shorten the life of the O-rings.
You get a parts break down from Kohler's web site to help with repair.

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

Lav center set faucet handle removal model K10271

The handle may be secured with a set screw in the body of the handle that must be loosened before the handle will lift off the valve - the set screw will require an appropriately-sized hex (or "allen") wrench. If you cannot find a set screw on the handle, then the handle is friction fit - in which case no tools are required, just a bit of force to lift the handle off.

Hope this helps. Post a reply if you need further assistance.

Should be coming out if head not stripped or threads inside at set screw aren't stripped. Can you tell at all with perhaps flashlight if set screw is turning at all? Look like it backing out?

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.

Cannot remove Kohler ceramic valve

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.
