How do I remove a stuck water hose from the faucet? Answered

The housing around the hose seems "frozen" to the faucet.  I've tried WD40 and even a plubmers wrench but still no movement.  Any assistance short of call the plumber is appreciated.

.  Heat, penetrating oil (WD-40), and a big wrench. A few raps with a hammer may help.
.  Most garden hose fittings are pretty soft (eg, brass) and you may have crushed the nut already. Inspect and see if you need to straighten it out a bit.

I had the same problem. Surprisingly, the hammer is what did it for me. lol

All this stuff is good, but sometimes turning a stuck nut/bolt/threaded whatever the wrong way (clockwise) as if you were tightening it, helps to break the grip and then it can be undone. Try appling pressure first clockwise, then anticlockwise.

you can try vinager to break the corrosion bond. cut the hose off just below the connection ( u need a repair/replacement piece anyway) pour about a cup of white vinager in a baggie and tape over the faucet end, let sit about an hr and try it, repeat if needed

On almost ANY stuck bolt try heating slightly with a propane torch.  Dont overheat, or you will melt the plastic hose, or damage the gaskets inside the faucet.  You might also try a regular hairdryer to heat the fitting... it MIGHT work... and would be safer for the plastics.  When the metals get hot, then grab onto the stubborn nut with a VICE GRIPS or other monster grip pliers.  Be sure you are turning COUNTER CLOCKWISE to loosen.

Take a hack saw and cut the "frozen" part till you see the threads.  Then take a screwdriver or a chisel and break the cut part free.  This should release enough tension to turn the hose off of spigot.   Unfortunately, you will then need to replace the hose end.

Have you tried pouring really really hot water on it?  That might make the metal expand enough to loosen it a bit.  It's worth a shot, anyway.
