How to remove the "button" on the handle without scratching it?
On the Addison & Ashton Electronic Faucet, do I need a special tool to remove the "button" in order to get to the valve assembly? I don't want to scratch it by prying it out, but it looks like only something small and sharp will remove it.
Hi Janelle, Thank you for your question. If you are unable to pry off the button using your fingernails you can insert a push pin into the small opening in the top of the button and gently pry it loose. Make sure the end of the pin is under the button where it will not scratch the finished surface.

I would like instructions on how to replace this cartridge in a Delta/Brizio Fucet # BZ63005LF
I was able to remove the caps but the cartridge is in there solid. Looks like there is a wide brass nut - do I unscrew that to remove it?
Thank you for your question. Brizo Faucet model # 63005LF will have a cap that needs to be removed after the handle is removed. If the faucet has been in for a while, it is possible that mineral deposits may have built up inside. This may make it difficult to remove the cap. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water to wrap around the nut overnight.
Included here are the instructions for installing your faucet. On page 3 is the parts breakdown that shows how it all fits together. This may help you in assembly your faucet again.

How to replace a cartridge on a delta 4297-dst kitchen faucet? What size Allen screw is used for the handle set screw
Thank you for your question. Please make sure that the hot and cold water supply are shut off under the sink. Remove the set screw cover by inserting a small screwdriver into the slot. Loosen set screw using a 1/8" Allen wrench and remove the handle. Remove the cap by rotating counterclockwise by hand, then remove the bonnet nut by rotating it counterclockwise with a wrench. The cartridge will pull straight out. Slide the new cartridge in and reassemble.
