SOURCE: Greetings, I have kohler

Hi,
That is a common problem and one that is very hard to fix once the water has been leaking for a time...the leaking water will leave a mineral residue that will keep you from being able to adjust the brass nut that you say will not move....
What you really need to do to stop the leak is to turn the brass nut down, or tighter to put more pressure on the packing around the stem to keep it from leaking...
If you cannot turn the nut anymore then you have no choice but to replace the faucet... if you force the brass nut too hard you will break the faucet anyway...
I have tried to use a penetrating oil like PB Blaster or WD-40 with limited success...it maybe worth a try...just be careful that over spray and run off do not ruin the finish on the sink...

He needs a handle puller. Once the screw is removed the handle puller has a long point on it that goes into where the screw was and then the outside of the handel puller clamps around the handle. You then turn the T part of the puller and up come the handle with no damage

Our cold water handle has to be removed and cleaned every month or so in order for the fawcett to move freely. The hot water handle seems to be fine. It's a Kohler forte and is around 3 years old. Thank...


This is due to impurities in the water. The hot water heater separates alot of the crud in the water and the cold water goes right to the sink. adding a filter to your system will prevent the buildup.
Thank you Joe

Removing the faucet stems and coating them( inside and out) with plumber's silicone lubricant should solve the problem. If the stem is too corroded, you may need to replace the stem.

Hot water faucet has seized up.


the cartridge is either broken or seized up due to rust in the line. make sure you turn the water off to the faucet and disconnect the supply tube from the stop (valve). be carefull with the supply tube , you might have to replace it so have one handy. try to clear the tube. then run a little water out of the stop to see if you have water running to the faucet or if it is plugged with rust. then go to the top of the faucet and remove the handle so you can get to the cartridge. use soft jaw pliers to gently pull cartridge out. look at cartridge and see if the are any defects. if so you will have to replace it , take the cartridge to your nearest Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowes , or Menards and show them your cartridge and they will get you a new one. if it is a special order faucet call the manufacturer with model number and they will help you. when you reinstall new cartridge make sure you clear out any debris and use valve grease to lube up your new piece. reassemble and turn water back on.

hope this helps
