Hi,
My kitchen faucet is leaking from the joint shown in the pic (red arrow). It leaks only when the faucet is running. Any ideas how to fix it?
Thanks,
Krishna

It is likely the O ring just under that joint. It looks like there is a set screw just above the joint which you will have to remove to pull the faucet apart. Get a new ORing and some plumbers grease and reassemble.

What brand is it?

Thanks for the super quick reply.

Here is a closer pic, I dont think it's a screw. I don't know how to open that joint. Also I can't find a brand name on this faucet. Sorry.

Is it possibly a button that needs to be pushed in, in order for the top part of the faucet to be removed? Like a button on an umbrella?

Thanks for the input guys. I figure out where the leak is coming from (pls see the pic). I replaced the o-ring there and the leak is fixed. Looks like the leak is filling up the curved part of the faucet and then leaking from the joint.
