The handles are very very stiff. I want to take out the cartridge and clean any mineral deposits and put silicon on the moving parts but I don't know who get it apart. The little cone on top doesn't come off, it's integrated, the handles unscrew, I see no Allen screws. I'd like to download the parts diagram but don't know who makes this faucet.

Photo is blurry, but looks like a price phister. They have a lifetime warantee on parts. Go to their website, send them the pic, they will identify it if it's one of theirs.



rubber gasket between the handle and hub has failed making it almost impossible to turn. lubing might help for awhile but should be replaced imo. while you are there replace the stems as well. You will be good to go for awhile.

Another suggestion is; once you have the handle/hub apart and stem out, take them to a local plumbing or hardware store and match them up. Sometimes you can get lucky at a big box store as well.

pretty straight forward, you can watch a couple utube videos how to do this if needed. Turn supply off, remove cap on top, remove the screw, and hub and handle should all come off. cant tell from pic but looks like one piece. might need some vinegar to cut through the sediment.

Once handle and hub are off, use a cresent wrench to remove the stem. it has a six sided nut shape.

Hope you get it figured out and fixed soon jl.

Email from Price Pfister, it is! Marielle. Thanks.

Instructions say to turn the body of the faucet counter clockwise to remove the cartridge.

I will look for a rubber gasket.
