Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Plumbing Category: Faucets

Problem:

Seat washer screw of a faucet seems to be stuck and unremovable.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Penetrating oil (for loosening)

  • Hammer

Solution:

 

So, you're in the midst of replacing a seat washer of a faucet, but you can't seem to get the old seat washer off because the seat washer screw is stuck and seems to be unremovable.  What are you to do?

You may try to loosen the seat washer screw by applying a few drops of penetrating oil on it, per the penetrating oil manufacturer's instructions.

After applying penetrating oil over the screw, gently hit the screw with a hammer in an effort to help cause "hammer tremors" around the screw so that the penetrating oil will settle deep within the crevices of the screw.

After about 15 minutes of having applied the penetrating oil, or as otherwise dictated by the instructions of the penetrating oil manufacturer's instructions, the screw should be "unscrewable" with a screwdriver once again.

So, the next time you're stuck in replacing the seat washer because its screw is stuck and otherwise unremovable, use some oil and a bit of sweat and effort to do the job.
