Peerless Kitchen Faucet Repair

The kitchen faucet is leaking or the water pressure has dropped. The plumber is not available when we need him most.
Maybe you have bought a new kitchen faucet and would like to install it yourself.

So I decided to post how to repair/install the peerless kitchen faucet.

How to repair a peerless kitchen faucet which is a generic Delta faucet.

The Kit provided with the faucet RP3612 contains all the washers needed. It also contains an Allen key.

The following steps explain the repair is to be carried out:

1. Turn off both the hot and cold water flow to the faucet. This valves are below the sink and have to be turned right that is in clockwise direction.

2. Make sure there is no water flow in the faucets by turning them on and checking.

3. Pop off the small cap on the handle using a screw driver or any sharp object.

4. Using the Allen wrench you can unscrew the handle off.

5. Using a pair of pliers remove the nut from the portion off the faucet now exposed.

6. Remove the control assembly by just pulling by out.

7. There are two washers in cup that is exposed and filled with water. Pop these off one by one using a screwdriver.

8. These have to be replaced as they are worn out. Black color coming off the washer and sticking to your fingers is an indication that they are worn out.

9. Take new spring and washers and fit the springs such that the small part of the spring is up and into the washer and the larger part down into the cup. Again using the screwdriver as a guide put the washers in place both on the hot water and cold water holes.

10. Guide in the control assembly with a projection on it fitting in the slot of the faucet cup.

11. Fix a new washer into the new white washer that fits on to the control assembly and press it into place so that the glue on it gets stuck.

12. Put back the nut and tighten by hand then slightly with a pair of pliers.

13. Turn on the cold and hot water from blow the sink. Check for leaks and correct flow.

14. Fix the handle using the Allen key and then put back the cap with the red on the right for hot.
