Question about Kohler Model 10430: Fort® Single-control Remote Valve Kitchen Sink Fauc...

1 Answer

I cannot figure out how to get faucet apart to actually get the cartridge out. I removed the handle and I can see the cartridge inside but I can't get the housing off. Please advise. I have the 10430 single handle model.

Under the handle, there is a curved trim ring at the top that needs to be unscrewed from the base. This can be on tight due to hard water buildup. I cut two strips of rubber to wrap, one to wrap around the trim ring and the other to wrap base while using channel locks for the trim ring and a pipe wrench to keep the base from turning.

After that is off, you will see a large hex head retainer nut that holds the valve assembly in place. A spanner wrench will get that off fairly easy.

Reassembly is the reverse. Kohler specs the hex nut to be torqued at 9 ft-lbs or 1//4 turn past hand tight.

Tuen the stops off unsder the sink . Remove the alaen screw from the handle. Using a spanner wrinch or a needle nosed pliers spred apart unscrew the large nut that has two slots. Lift the whole assembly out. Take assembly to the plunmbign supply and match ius the kit that youy need with has two new rubber seals and two springs and maybe a new spanner nut. It also comes with the spanner wrench  and allen wrench  needed to renstall. Tip you may be able just to tighten the spanner nut(clockwise) and stop the leak w/o rebuilding it.

Is cheaper to replace the whole tap as the service kits cost almost as much as the tap to buy, I presume you are talking about a flick mixer tap (that is what they are called in australia)
Replacing them is reasonably easy, turn off water at the main out on the footpath turn the tap on to let the water run out, go under the sink with a couple of spanners or deep reach socket and undo the lines and the tap hold down nuts and remove, replace in reverse order

Remove the air-irater at the end of the faucet where the water comes out. That is where 99% of clog are on faucets. If that does not do it then you need to replace the cartridge.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

How do I fix a leaking hansgrohe solaris bathroom faucet?


If this is a widespread faucet you will need to turn the bell shaped portion of the handle counter clockwise to remove the handle as one unit. Then you will see the hex nut of the cartridge that will unscrew counter clockwise to remove. If this is a single hole unit you will need to loosen the set screw on the handle to remove it and then remove a cover ring to access the cartridge nut. If you need any further assistance feel free to call me at Hansgrohe. 1-800-334-0455 press 2 for Tech and ask for David Scarborough. I'll be happy to help.

How to repair cartridge-type faucets


  • Cartridge faucets have only one moving part. The stem slides up and down to open and close the faucet and rotates to regulate the flow of hot and cold water. Any leaking requires replacement of the cartridge.

  • First, turn off the water. To remove the cartridge, you'll need to remove the handle. This project can be like working a puzzle. If you have the manufacturer's instruction sheet for the faucet, you're ahead of the game. Without it, look for a retainer clip at the rear of the faucet just below the handle. Or, you may have to remove a set screw or snap-in "hot-cold" button and a handle pin or screw. On some faucets the swing spout must come off first. The retainer clip may be hiding beneath the handle inside a lift-out tube. Some cartridge faucets use two retainer clips–one by the handle and another by the cartridge. Retainer clips can be pried out with a screwdriver.

  • Once the retainer clip is removed, the cartridge simply pulls out. Use pliers, as shown. Install the new cartridge by pushing it into place with the flat arrow, or other mark upward. If you use a lubricant on the cartridge, make sure it's silicone grease.

    How to fix leaky American Standard single faucet kitchen sink


    The A-S single lever kitch faucet is terrible. If it is the one I think it is, then it has three screws that mount the cartridge down into the faucet body.If these are not torqued perfectly evenly, the faucet leaks. I suggest getting a Moen to replace it.

    The faucet drips and I cant figure out how to make it quit.


    It can be repaired without taking entire valve out of wall. First shut water off and remove handle. Next you will see a collar that will screw off to remove the cartridge below is a link for a single handle moen faucet. Check it out to get an idea. If you know your model you can research on line ,but they are close enough to give you an idea.
    Once appart replace washers or o -ring's. Pay attention to how you take it appart for easy reinstallation.

    I have a Delta shower faucet model number 1324 and my shower head is leaking How do I get the faucet part apart I have a diagram, but actually looking at the insides it all looks like one piece I don't...


    Hi Shannon:

    The problem is most likely the seats and springs. You should purchase Delta Part # RP4993. I found some for mine at Lowe's for around $4.00. O-rings are available there too for about $2.00, and you probably should go ahead and replace them as well, especially if they feel dry and brittle.

    You have to remove the handle, then unscrew the brass ring (or bonnet) with a pipe wrench, then just pull the cartridge straight out. Separate the lower cartridge from the upper by twisting a quarter turn to the left. Once separated, remove the black rubber seats and springs and install the new.
