How to Remove a Handle on a Wolverine Brass Kitchen Faucet

By Chris Deziel

Wolverine Brass faucets aren't available to the general public, so if you have one in your kitchen, a plumber must have installed it. Founded in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1896, Wolverine Brass has only three distribution outlets across the country and sells its plumbing products exclusively to plumbers. The faucets use the same technologies as more widely available ones, including the most common method for holding the handle to the stem -- a screw. If you have a one- or two-handled kitchen faucet and you can't see the screw, it's hidden under a decorative cap.

Remove the screw holding the handle of a two-handled faucet with a Phillips screwdriver. If you don't see the screw, which should be on the top of the handle, pry off the decorative cap covering it with a flat-head screwdriver and then unscrew it. The cap may be made of the same material as the handle and may be difficult to see.

Spray the screw with lubricant if it won't turn. Wait for about five minutes and try turning it again. It may take two or three applications of lubricant to loosen the threads if the faucet hasn't been disassembled for a long time.

Look for a blue and red plastic plug on the front of a single-handled lever-style faucet. It's about 1/4-inch in diameter. Pry it off with a flat-head screwdriver and unscrew the hex nut behind it with an Allen wrench.

Pull the handle straight up to remove it. If it's stuck, jiggle it sharply a few times to loosen the ribs holding it to the faucet stem. If that doesn't work, wrap duct tape around the handle to protect it and tap it a few times with a hammer.

Attach a faucet handle puller if all else fails. This tool works like a corkscrew, dislodging the handle as you tighten its handle. You can probably rent one at your local tool rental outlet.

Tips

  • Even though you have to be a plumber to purchase a Wolverine faucet, anyone can buy spare parts through online plumbing parts outlets, so you can do most repairs yourself.

How to Replace a Tub or Shower Cartridge to Fix Your Faulty Faucet

Troubles with your tub and shower faucet can be surprisingly easy to fix. If you struggle to turn the faucet on and off or control the temperature, it's likely that your shower faucet cartridge needs to be repaired or replaced. Once you shut off the water and remove the handle and escutcheon, you can quickly determine whether the cartridge for your single-handle tub and shower faucet is a cartridge, ball, or disk type. Before you replace your shower cartridge, note that mineral deposits from hard water could be the cause of your faucet issues. If you see deposits when you disassemble the faucet, soak the cartridge in vinegar to clean it before reattaching. Otherwise, a damaged cartridge might require you to repair or replace a certain part. Manufacturers make cartridges of varying designs, so take the cartridge with you when you shop for replacement parts. If the damage is more serious, you might need to replace the entire cartridge. Follow our steps below to learn how to replace a shower or tub cartridge to keep your faucet running smoothly.
