Kitchen faucet handle goes around 360 degrees


Hi,

My kitchen faucet handle no longer stops in the off position, it now goes completely around without stopping. The water flow never really stops, the best it gets is a steady drip.

What to do? Is there a way to fix it without replacing the handle itself, the part that you see?

Thanks!

take the handle off and look at the back of it. probably just stripped out the plastic spline insert in the back. replacements are likely available at lowes or hd.
