How to Repair a Kohler Spray Kitchen Faucet


The mobile sprayer head on the Kohler spray kitchen faucet makes rinsing the inside of large pots and pans is easier. However, this faucet is not immune to problems. Major leaks and sediment build up inside the cartridge complicate and reduce its performance. Returning the faucet to its original functionality only requires one repair. Changing the cartridge solves the issue of leaks and lower flow rates. It takes just a half hour to complete this job.

Things You'll Need

  • Allen wrench
  • Large pliers
  • New faucet cartridge
  • Close the water valves underneath your sink. Shut both the hot and cold water pipe valves by turning them counterclockwise.

  • Remove the handle on top of the faucet base, not on the sprayer head, by loosening the screw in back of the handle with an Allen wrench and pulling the handle straight up and off the faucet.

  • Remove the bonnet by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it off the faucet. Take off the adapter, if present, and unscrew the retaining nut by turning this counterclockwise with a pair of pliers. Take out the cartridge by lifting it up and out of the faucet.

  • Insert a new cartridge in the faucet. Replace the retaining nut and tighten this securely. This part holds the cartridge in place. Tightening it may stop any new leaks that occur after changing the cartridge.

  • Place the bonnet back on and tighten it. Re-install the handle by sliding it onto the cartridge stem. Insert, thread and tighten the screw with an Allen wrench.

Tips & Warnings

  • To unclog the sprayer head, rub your fingers around the nozzle openings and run the faucet. This removes built up lime scale and other minerals.
