I have an IKEA LOVIKEN AA-291347-1 faucet. It leaks between the 2 handles at the connection.
I removed the screw behind, but I cannot remove the top center part.
Do you have any idea how I can open it to change the seal inside?

    How old is the faucet? Is it still under warranty?

  • after removing the screw it should just lift out, maybe you need to wiggle it a bit or turn it to a certain angle.

While you have removed the locating screw, there are usually 3 rubber (well nitrile or somesuch) sealing rings which are a tight fit.

So, you might have to twist and pull very hard to get them to release.

At least, that was the case when I took a similar tap apart.

Of course, lots of care needed to get it back together without damaging the new seals...


I believe that part is factory assembled, not removable. You may want to check with the manufacturer, if there's a local 800 number. Maybe they'll give you a brand new one.
