Bathroom Faucet: Broken Monticello Handle

This article will explain how to repair a broken Monticello handle.

Preparation:


 There are two basic ways the handle could be broken:

1. Broken Parts:

If you turn over the handle elbow (#1), there will be broken plastic parts inside the elbow (#1) and in the handle hub (#2). A Phillips screw is generally going to be protruding out of the handle elbow. This will require a new replacement handle adapter (#3). See article 100562, 103456 or 97371 Monticello Handle Adapter or 97556 or 100561 Monticello Handle Adapter for how to rebuild the handle with the new handle adapter (#3).

2. Handle is Separated:

If you turn over the handle elbow (#1), there will not be any broken plastic pieces in the handle elbow (#1) or visible screw. There will be a hole for a screw in the handle elbow (#1). This will require reassembling the handle parts but no replacement parts are needed. See the instructions below for re-assembly.

If the handle hub is still attached the faucet, you will need to remove it by rotating it counter-clockwise.

The Phillips screw will be located upside down in the faucet. Use needle-nose pliers to retrieve it. See article 100562, 103456 or 97371 Monticello Handle Adapter or 97556 or 100561 Monticello Handle Adapter  for how to rebuild the handle.
