SOURCE: how do i remove the faucet handles?

They make sockets for stems to break them loose from valve. It should have a place for a wrench to break it loose also.

Have you checked with a plumbing supply hose if it is a square slot you may could use a handle off a boiler drain for a washing machine .

Check it out if it is a metal red or blue metal it may be the same type used on your washing machine cut off valve

Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.

    • Test the dripping water with your hand to make sure that it is the hot water side that is leaking. Lay a rag over the sink drain to keep parts from falling down it. Locate the hot and cold shutoff valves under the sink and turn the knobs clockwise by hand until they close. If the knobs remain stiff, use a pair of pliers to gently turn them until the knob begins to move, then finish turning by hand.

      Pry the decorative cap off the faucet top with a small thin, flat-head screwdriver. Remove the cap that has the "H" letter on it. Depending upon the handle screw configuration, use a flat-head or Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the handle screw. Gently pry up on the handle from all angles and pull it up and off the splines of the stem.

      Use a crescent wrench to turn the hot water stem nut counterclockwise until it comes completely off the stem shaft. Wiggle the stem with your fingers and pull it out of the faucet. If the washer on the bottom of the stem is deformed, it indicates the source of the leak. However, remove the old seat from the faucet base with an Allen wrench or a seat removal tool.

      Wipe out the inside of the seat housing with a rag. Replace the seat with the new one included in the repair package, using an Allen wrench or seat removal tool.
    • 5
      Place the new hot water stem shaft into the valve seat, and start the stem nut in by hand, turning it clockwise. Finish tightening the stem nut with the crescent wrench, but only to a moderate firmness -- do not over-tighten it. Place the handle back over the stem shaft and tap it down until it seats firmly. Replace the handle screw and tighten it with a screwdriver.

      Turn the hot and cold water supply knobs counterclockwise until they are fully open. Turn the hot water faucet knob to the "On" position and check for leaks.

Single-handle tub/shower: knob turns but no water comes out.

Try removing the screw in center, and pull handle off. Check to see if maybe just inside of handle is stripped, or if it has a plastic insert with splines that are stripped. Thus just replace handle or insert or both. You can try turning it with vise grips or pliers carefully when handle off to see if tap itself is still good. My guess is a replacement handle and/or insert and you'll probably be good to go. Any hardware store should stock parts, reasonably priced.

I have a Moen shower knob that broke...

You are not the first. Usually you must break the plastic handle to remove it and then you can access the screw and have leverage to hold the brass stem with pliers while you try removing the screw. Caution, do not try to bend the handle to break it off or you will break the brass facet stem. Also, there are two styles of handles: one has a short innercone,the other has a longer inner cone. You need to know this before you purchase a replacement. Goodluck< Macgivor

Faucet and shower head leaking, it`s a delta product. It drops when turned off. It`s a delta faucet product.

Is it a single handle faucet set? If so it sounds like you need to replace the stem in the faucet itself. You can get to this with a screw driver and a pair of pliers. Turn off the water to the faucet (hot and cold) and remove the handle. Once you do this you will see a clip that hols the stem in place.Remove this clip and pull the stem out with the pliers and you can find a replacement at your local Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. Pay attention to the directions when reinstalling. there is a tab that determines the top side of the stem.

I have a shower faucet that keeps turning, does't stop.

Yes shut of main water, then remove handle, then take off bonnet, that holds stem in valve. You will have to take stem with you to hardware store to match up. Put it back together in reverse, turn main water back on. Now you tell everyone your a plumber and get much respect.

Dripping faucet

Take a cloth and lay over the top of the stem so as not to damage it. With pliers, grasp the top of the stem and turn it a quarter turn counter clockwise. The stem should lift right out.
