Delta kitchen faucet won't swivel
Had the faucet since 2004. The faucet was stuck and won't swivel. Can this be fixed? or still covered on the lifetime warranty.
I had this problem and found it was caused by a broken O-ring in the spout assembly. The loose rubber was binding.
Turn off the water, remove the handle (loosen setscrew under the blue-red plastic tab), remove the round cap that covers the ball, and you should be able to swivel and lift up the spout. Check the condition of the O-ring or rings underneath and replace if needed.
While you have the faucet disassembled, clean out any calcium deposits, too, since these can make swiveling difficult. Some people put a light coating of silicone grease on the (replacement) O-rings to further reduce friction.
