SOURCE: bottle under Grohe soap dispenser leaks down to cabinet

Pull the dispenser out the top and have someone hold the trim above the counter while you tighen the bottle down below.

But the real problem is the retaiher nut which hold the dispenser in place is loose. Remove the bottle underneath ( it unthreads) and tighten the nut that you see just above the bottle. This can be a tight spot and you may need a basin wrench.

Please rate this response and Good Luck, Phil

SOURCE: Grohe ladylux plus is leaking

I believe there is a cartrige that has some washers in the unit. There may be some debris caught in there since it was a little loose. I would turn the water off and disassymble the unit and replace any obvious washers and clean everthing up. Replace it all and try it again. If it still leaks, contact Grohe for more trouble shooting. Faucets have fantastic warranties and companies usually will send replacement parts free of charge at times. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: leak where Grohe shower head attached to the threaded pipe

using a pair of vice grips wrapped in a soft towel( to prevent scractching) turn the shower head in a counter clockwise direction to remove it then apply liquid teflon (real-tuf) to the threads on the shower arm and tighten the shower head but dont over tighten it liquid teflon is more effective at sealing leaks than teflon tape and it can be wiped clean

SOURCE: 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.

Why is my grohe alira kitchen faucet loose on a granite counter


Probably a loose fixture nut under the counter behind the sink.
Yeah ya gotta pull out everything and crawl up into the cabinet on your back and see if the nut (right up at the granite, above the hot and cold inlet pipes) is loose. If it is THEN you'll need to tighten it. Wrench, slip-joint pliers or a basin wrench. (probably basin wrench which is a specialized tool made for reaching up into tight places)

Need to tighten my ladylux


Grohe has a special tool that is used for installation that comes with the faucet. You have to remove the pullout spray and remove the curved neck of the faucet by pulling out. Insert the tool in the main body and tighten from above. Most plumbers will keep this tool when installing. I don't know if Grohe still uses the same system still today, but they did in the past.

LOOSE FIXTURE


Unfortunately you cannot tighten the faucet from the top. you will need a 1/2" extended socket (the type for car repairs) and you will need to tighten it from underneath using an extension bar.
