Question about Kohler K-T945-4 Stillness Laminar Wall-Mount Lavatory Faucet With Lever....

1 Answer

The cold water handle assembly of my Kohler Stillness wall mount faucet keeps unscrewing from the valve body after a few days of use. I've hand-tightened it as the instructions say to but is there something else I can do to keep it secured to the valve?

Automotive Thread-Lock compound will secure the parts during normal day to day use-and still allow the faucet to be disassembled for servicing. You will only need a drop or two, don't over do it.

Kohler a112.18.1 diverter will not spray


Generally the sprayer trigger assembly will unscrew from the hose. You can then point the hose toward the sink and turn on the
water. It should flow freely through the hose when either the hot or cold is on. Generally there is a aerator on the spray head. You can access it by unscrewing the tip of the sprayer assembly and clean out any mineral deposits. There may also be an inline type filter in the handle where it screws onto the hose that can be removed and cleaned. If this doesn't help I would guess the on-off triggering assembly is broken and you would have to replace the sprayer head.Hope this helps.

I dont know the modle fauset you have ,but it sounds like your cartridge has turned in the valve body. It should lock into place in the valve body with a tang in the cartridge and a slot or groove in the fauset body. If the whole cartridge assembly turns in the fauset it will couse this problem.

My Kohler Fairfax faucet pressure /flow has dropped (cold)


Verify the cold water outlet has equal pressure as the hot side outlet at the wall. Check the inlet screen on the cold side water line where it attatches to cold water pipe. The screen could be plugged. Then check the cold side hose for any restrictions. Also check if there is a screen on the outlet side of the cold water hose and see if it is plugged. Otherwise the faucet valve is mis-aligned and will need to be rotated and re-tightened to align the valve to the center so both sides have equal water flow.
