you need a new cartridge is bad and sounds like some junk is inside. You might have lime and even a broken part inside.

I dont think you will be able to fix it this weekend. It is hard to fine parts, if you check your local stores that sell pluming parts they :MIGHT" have the one that fits yours.

I have ot say one nite I had a person where I could not get the parts, but they had the same faucet. So I got the set, took the parts out, got new part fixed like new and took it back.

You go where you have to in talking care of your clients.

Be safe and take care.

Break out the old diverter valve out with a pick and needilnose, then pop in the new one with a deep socket A 1/4"drive 3/8" worked just fine.

It is most likily not the valve.
Check to make sure the pull out hose is not kinked and if that is not the problem take the head of and clean it. The link below should help you with this.

hi there

this is caused by air trapping between the tap valve and spicket.a non return valve fitted on the supplie pipe may help or try removing the filter at the spicket.

good luck

I have seen this before and the problem when I saw it was that there was not enough pressure going to the faucet. I hope this answers your question.

Soaking the limed up parts in white vinegar overnight should help.

Just had this same thing, on this exact faucet. If you still have the manual, it has instructions on how to rotate the valve for back to back installations where one shower has the hot/cold reversed. Our contractor got ours in backwards the first time and I had to call and have them come out and rotate the valve this morning.

Actually one or more o rings in your faucet are worn and leaking. get a faucet repair kit especially for your k-10430 if you are mechanically minded. If not call an appliance store and see how much they would charge to install a repair kit. regards, joe

ps kindly rate my answer as helpful as this is the only credit I can get for assisting you. ty.

Tuen the stops off unsder the sink . Remove the alaen screw from the handle. Using a spanner wrinch or a needle nosed pliers spred apart unscrew the large nut that has two slots. Lift the whole assembly out. Take assembly to the plunmbign supply and match ius the kit that youy need with has two new rubber seals and two springs and maybe a new spanner nut. It also comes with the spanner wrench  and allen wrench  needed to renstall. Tip you may be able just to tighten the spanner nut(clockwise) and stop the leak w/o rebuilding it.

You need to go to the Kohler website and look for your model number. Sometimes, you can get an expanded view of the faucet for download. If you can't, then get their contact info and give them a call. They can usually fax it to you. Hopefully this helps.
