Removing Handle From Kitchen Faucet

Question: How do I get the handle off my kitchen sink faucet? It is stuck and I don't want to break it. It's a round handle that screws onto a spindle type of valve connection. The screw is off. It's the cold water one and doesn't get removed as often as the hot one. I think I need to replace the gasket underneath the covering which surrounds the hot and cold valves and the center spigot and this it why I'm trying to remove it.

Answer: If you have removed the screw, the only thing holding it on is friction and probably some calcium build-up. Try to use a screwdriver as a pry bar angling it to push the handle up.
