The hot water on my kitchen faucet recently started dripping. I haven't a clue what make or model it is, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to take it apart to get at the seat and springs. Can anybody help identify it or give my some hints on where I might find a model numbers, so I can find instructions to take it apart? Or, any suggestions on how to get it apart?
I'd include some actual instructions here, but it's spelled out in the linked sheet. Have a look at that.
You can try one of those round rubber jar opener and if that doesn't work, go to your Harbor Tool store and purchase a rubber strap wrench. At Harbor, it is sold as a set of three and relatively inexpensive. Use the one that fits. Also, try spraying some WD-40 penetrating oil at the base so it loosens the thread (don't get any on the upper part; only the base). The rubber strap wrench won't damage the finish. This worked for me.
