    I am desperately trying to get the single handle off my American Standard kitchen sink faucet. I popped off the little hot/cold indicator and removed the set screw with an allen wrench but i can't for the life of me pop off the handle. The hot/cold indicator and set screw are kinda just floating around in the dome now... :(

    Any words of advice? Here's a pic of the faucet if it helps

    Thanks!

    Not sure about that brand but some don't lift up and off. They slide front to back to come off.

    Just make sure some fool didn't put 2 set screws in it, That's a machanics trick when they won't stay tight.
