Can anyone identify this kitchen faucet, and tell me how I can repair it ??? After 18 years, it has started to drip. As you can see, I pulled the handle, and exposed the stem and nut, but it will not unscrew. I flooded it with PB Blaster, and let it sit overnight, but it still will not budge. This faucet might have cartridges, and dissassemble differently--I don't know. I've replaced many washers and washerless cups in my bathroom fixtures (sink, shower, tub), but this is my first kitchen fixture. I put a wrench on the hex, and tried to turn it both ways, but it will not budge. When you turn the handle to start the water flowing, the stem DOES NOT screw out of the faucet--it just spins and starts the water flowing. There is a "U" shaped clip on the stem, at the nut that you can see clearly in 1 of the pictures--that's what makes me think that there is a whole cartridge in there, rather than a stem and washer. Can anyone tell me how to dissassemble this faucet ???
