Hello and welcome.......

Can you take pics of the faucet? Possibly the stem broke and you may need to replace the whole bib......

Yea, you've gotta give us more than simply point at another thread and say "me to".

What specifically broke or is not working?
What did you do to break it?
A picture showing the faucet and the broken part would help a lot.

Same answer as in the link. If it was the handle only, should be held on by one small nut sitting on top that screws it into the rest of the assembly, which you can loosen with a pair of pliars. The big box stores sell those things for just a few bucks. Just go get one that fits and reverse the process, fastening it back onto the assembly with that nut.

If it was something below the handle, you will likely have to replace the faucet as they don't really offer much in the way of replacement cartdidges for outdoor hosebibs like they do for indoor faucets.
