Kitchen Faucet

Hi
single lever kitchen faucet leaking
Is it possible to just remove faucet handle & replace Oring & washer without removing entire faucet?????
Don't see how I could possibly get to connection in cabinet to replace entire faucet
hoping I can just remove top portion of faucet & replace O ring & washer but I dont see any set screw to release top portionof faucet
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated
Thanks
Ted

Should be a standard household faucet and come apart the same way. Remove set screw in the handle, pull handle off, unscrew bonnet over the ball and pull up. Take ball unit to plumbing store and either buy the whole new unit or just a repair kit if available.
Oh, yah, just like at home: be sure the water is turned off and the pressure is released.

You don't give many details like brand of faucet, exactly what is leaking, when cold or hot or both is used, etc. If it is leaking around the handle, the cartridge may be bad. On most single levers, you can access the cartridge by taking off that little red/blue dot and use a allen wrench to remove the set screw (see the pic below). If that doesn't work to solve the problem, try posting more details. Lots of people here to help. Good luck.

Thanks Seems like you are right on
I did not see any set screw but did see that small red 7 blue dot
Plan on trying to remove this dot & if successful I'm sure there is a set screw there & Walla
Remove cartridge & i'm home free Hopefully
In great shape but at 80 years of age just can no longer work in a 18 in X 18 inch opening Where I am unable to see or get to what needs to be done
I'm hoping It just involves removing that dot & set screw
Thanks again
Ted

If it's a major brand faucet you should not have any problem replacing the "guts" from the top!

Red/blue dot can be found on Delta faucets. It is a plastic insert, pryed off/out with a sharp edge. The set screw is usually an Allen screw.

I found it was easier to work on with the water turned off and the handle in the fully open position to access the set screw.

Some of the modern faucets do not have o-rings but have some sort of cartridge that has to be replaced. We had to order it because we could not find it locally.
