You do not have to disconnect the water hoses, but you do have to turn the water valves off before loosening any parts on the faucet.

Installing kitchen sink

Shut off water to both hot and cold water lines under sink. Place a bucket under water lines then disconnect them from under side of faucet. Disconnect drain and p-trap under sink. Disconnect sink hold-down brackets under sink where they connect to counter. Use a sharp thin knife (utility knife) to separate sink caulking from counter. Lift sink free from counter. Disconnect faucet from sink. Reverse these steps to install new sink.

How do I put my pull out faucet back?

Under the counter there is a weight on the hose. If it gets stuck on something you placed in the cabinet under the counter then the weight can't help you put the faucet head back in the fixture. Check the cabinet under so that the hose and weight are free.

Got cold water in cold water tap but no water in hot water tap,why?

Did you check the turn valve under the sink. It's kind of similar to a water hose spigot on the outside of a house. If it's off you'll have to turn it counter clockwise to allow for water to flow to the faucet head. Also check the pipes by the hot water heater and make sure the valve is opened. Just follow the pipes coming in and out of the heater to find them.

Turned on hot water faucet and i can't turn it off. I can rotate the faucet knob back and forth but the water won't turn off. Is the valve stuck open because of too much pressure or something...

With no model number, I will assume that you have a two handle faucett assembly, although they are both about the same. Either the knob and/or srew is stripped in thr stem of the knob. Hopefully the screw is just loose. If this is a sink faucet, you should be able to turn the water off to the faucet in your vanity under the sink. If it's a shower faucet, you will probably have to turn water off to the whole house. Any way, you may be able to get away without having to do this now but, I'd find out where the shut off is nad be ready. You should be able to remove the center part of the knob by getting under it with a small screw driver or butter knife. You should see a screw taht hold the knob on. Hopefully you can get this screw out or, by trying to grt it out, turning counter clockwise, you will turn your water off. If you can't get the screw out, you will have to drill it out, remove the handle, and turn the stem counter clockwise to turn off your water. In ant rate, you will orbably have to replace the valve, unless it was just a loose screw.

Water leaking under handle

This faucet has two O rings under the handle..Turn the water off at the valves under the sink, there is an allen wrench screw at the back of the handle. Loosen the allen screw, take the handle off. Then you will have to unscrew the faucet head from the base. (counter clockwise). Once the head is off you should see two O rings you will have to change them both. Also, inspect the O ring on the head itself. You should go ahead and change them all. Hope this works for you.

It sprays fine but off the spray thair is no presuser . we replaced the water lines in the house we have good preasure though out our home jest not at the kitchen sink

One of the greatest things about Franke Faucets is that they have a lifetime guarantee. If you recently changed the waterlines in the home then more than likely when the water was turned back on or lines pressurized the settlement in the water main (Outside of your home) was activated and clogged the aerator. Most aerators simply turn counter clockwise (With the water off) after remooving the aerator simply clean and dislodge any particles in another sink. As for the pull out, some models have an inline screen located between the hose and the faucet handle. Simpy remove the handheld faucet (With the water off) and clean the screen.

My delta signature faucet is leaking from the top of the hose. I want to take the hose out to get a replacement. I have started to disassemble the faucet but don't know how to remove the cap.

i am not sure which cap you refer to. there is a cap just below the handle. turn off the water supply for safety and remove handle then turn the cap counter clockwise. to replace the hose you should only have to disconnect at the handle to the sprayer and the other end at the faucet below the sink. if you wish to remove the faucet then after shutting off the water undo the nut below holding the faucet in place. delta have a good web site where you can see a breakdown of this faucet.

How do I disassmble a jado kitchen faucet with

you have to locate the water shut off valves before you attempt removing the water lines, hopefully they will be located on the lines under your sink, if not you will have to shut the water main off coming into the house. After you have shut the water off and disconnected the lines, look under your sink at the back were your faucet comes through the sink and you will find the fasteners, unscrew these counter clockwise and the faucet will lift out .
