Simply pop off the button on top of the lever to get access to the screw that holds it in place. Fun project...

Once the screw is out, simple pry out the handle. The older the faucet, the more it gets set in place. You may have to use a wedge in the space between the handle and the faucet to loosen it. Be careful to not damage the finish, especially if you want to re-use the faucet.

No most faucets today are not made as good as early year faucets.

Go to kohler web site and request a parts break down of that model they should be able to e-mail you a diagram and provide parts needed at little or no cost if you are firm about not using their product again because of bad experience with this faucet.

There's usually a plug button (on the top or around the base of the handle), remove that and there will be a small screw underneath.

Verify the cold water outlet has equal pressure as the hot side outlet at the wall. Check the inlet screen on the cold side water line where it attatches to cold water pipe. The screen could be plugged. Then check the cold side hose for any restrictions. Also check if there is a screen on the outlet side of the cold water hose and see if it is plugged. Otherwise the faucet valve is mis-aligned and will need to be rotated and re-tightened to align the valve to the center so both sides have equal water flow.

One thing you could try is to remove the aerator at the end of the spout on the faucet, Turn water on and see if pressure is any better. If so the aerator is got something in it restricting the flow.
You also can remove the dime shaped flat in the aerator to increase water flow. It looks like a dime with a hole about 1/8" in center to restrict the flow to about 1.6 gpm. Remove it and reinstall aerator and check water flow

Most of the times when cold and hot side of faucet.It would be the first thin to check being you have good water pressure at other faucets. They catch debris and the flow slows down from the faucet's. Check out supply lines and faucet for a blockage if this doesn't take care of the problem.

Check out this web sire for a parts breakdown of parts in faucet. Check out installation and rough in sheet for information on faucet below.

Try tighten the hoses, if this don't work the seal in hose connectors may need replaced, very simple and cheap to replace. over time the hot water will wear down the seal it will go bad with pressure and water period. It's a good thing to change these all while you are there.

Yes- a handle puller is required. My husband is a plumber. He says to go to a plumbing supply store to buy one. Also, u need to take off the brass clip with a screwdriver. It pries out. Good luck!

If it's the handle and u can't get it off b/c of sediment then pour hot water on the handle and gently pry off. If that doesn't work then get a handle puller from a plumbing supply store

U have to get a handle puller from a plumbing supply store. My husband is a plumber. he says that's all u need to do!

If you have checked the head then that is ruled out. I assume that all the other faucets in the house are okay. The problem is in the small passageways inside the faucet, if both the hot and cold are slow then it is probably in the one going to the spout. If you remove the heandle you can often pull the spout up and over the guts of the faucet. Check for an obstruction in the hole going to the spout. Also blow out the spout to make sure that it is free of debris.
Very small amounts of debris can make a faucet very slow.

Remove top handle and lock nut and remove plastic cartridge buy the cartridge it has detailed instructions better yet call 1-800-4-KOHLER and they will mail you a free replacement

This unit uses a cartridge with some small washers. I have included a link of the expanded view for your faucet. Take it apart and replace the whashers in it. Hopefully this helps.

I assume you mean the separate H/C valve body as opposed to single handle(bath/shower).

There is one O ring just below threads of body.

Only if you don't mind having to replace the valve after you finish forcing it with pliers.

Kohler Plumbing | Answered on Jan 08, 2019 | 112 views

First, your not going to like the solution. There really is no way to solve this on kohler faucets. Some companies make adapters but as far as I know kohler isn't one of them. Hopefully you can cut a hole in the drywall behind and put it where it should be, if not the marble comes back off.

Pop the cap off the faucet handle and tighten the screw under it.
