The handle to our Kohler kitchen sink is real loose. The Faucet is mode # is 690-BN-AC, made in Jan 2005.
Went to the Kohler website and found out that to remove/tighten the handle requires a 1/8" Allen Wrench. I cannot even remotely budge the hex head in the handle; if fact I thought it was going to bend and break. I sprayed some WD-40 up into the handle, but I cannot get the oil to soak into a handle that is basically right-side up; the best I can do is 45 degrees [see pic].
Sprayed some WD-40 into a paper towel, then pushed it up into the handle hoping it could wick up.
Does anyone have any suggestions for helping me loosen the hex head so I can see if it will tighten? The house was built in 2005 so I am fairly sure the he nut has never been loosened; we've owned since 2008.
