Answer: 
Hi Tish, Thank you for your question. Based on your photo you have already removed the bonnet nut that screws down over the stem assembly and holds it in place. At this time there is nothing mechanical holding the stem assembly in place. If you are replacing the stem assembly, seat and spring we recommend using a pair of pliers to grab the stem and rock back it back and forth while pullling out. You can also thread a screw into the stem and grab the screw to pull and work the stem assembly out.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Kendall, Thank you for your question. The faucet is operating properly. What you are seeing is the residual water that is left in the spout when you turn the faucet off draining out. The hi arc design of the spout causes this to happen.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Big Ears, Thank you for your question. It sounds like the cartridge in the faucet is not functioning properly and needs to be replaced. Please refer to the owners manual for your faucet model for the correct cartridge replacement part number. If you are the original purchaser of the faucet and need warranty assistance please call our toll free Homeowner/Warranty line at 1-800-345-3358.
Thanks,
Dave

RP19804 installed in 1400 shower faucet on turns 45 degrees

I have a Delta 1400 shower faucet and the original cartridge turns 60 degrees. The replacement cartridge RP19804 only turns 45 degrees and the last 15 degrees controls hot water, so the new cartridge does not allow hot water to the full setting. What can I do?

Answer: 
Hi Kevin, Thank you for your question. The RP19804 cartridge is equipped with a rotational limit stop that allows you to set the max hot water temperature. Here is a link to the how to adjust the rotational limit stop video.

Once this adjustment is made you should have hotter water available.

Answer: 
Hi Ang, Thank you for your question. If the showerhead on your model T17230 faucet is leaking when the faucet is on, you may want to look at replacing the RP43381 showerhead.
If the showerhead is leaking when the water is off, you will want to change the RP46463 cartridge.
Thanks,
Dave

Victorian Single Handle Kitchen Faucet is leaking at swivel joint

How do I take apart and repair a leak at the swivel joint area on the spout? The parts diagram which your website shows for the 155-DST does not show the area that I am having a problem with. The leak area is at the the swivel joint which is a few inches above the base part RP53882.

Answer: 
Hi Sammy, Thank you for your question. To remove the spout from your model 155 you will want to grab the faucet body under the spout and unscrew in a counter-clockwise direction. The RP22934 o-ring on top of the body & base should be replaced to stop the leak.
Here is a link to the parts breakdown of the non-DST version of the model 155.

How to fix a leaking two-handle shower faucet?

I have a leaking two-handle shower valve. Hardware store personnel looked at the pictures and told me that it's a Delta valve. If it is indeed, I would like to ask the following three questions:

(1) How to fix the leak?
(2) Hardware store personnel told me to pull out what's left in the wall, but it's very well seated in place. Do I just pull it straight out after wiggling it a little bit?
(3) What Delta replacement parts do I need?

Thank you very much!

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Sky, Thank you for your question. To stop the leak you will want to change out the stem assembly and the seats and springs. Once the chrome trim sleeve is unscrewed and the stem extender removed you should be able to wiggle and pull the stem assembly out of the valve body. The seats and springs are located under the stem assembly in the valve body. The part numbers for the stem assembly is the RP1740 and the seats and springs are RP4993. I have attached the parts breakdown below to help with your repair.
Thanks,
Dave

Delta T2794-cz leaks around spout after test plug removed

Rough in installed with no problems. During trim installation, when I installed the spout and turn on the faucet, water leaks out the bottom where the spout connects. There does not appear to be a gasket or o-ring to install there but the way it is working it seems like it needs one.

Answer: 
Hi Howard, Thank you for your question. The spout connection on the R2707 rough should have the RP18362 o-ring on it to create the seal when the T2794 trim is installed. There are no seals in the roman tub spout itself.
I have included a link to the parts breakdown to show the location of the o-ring.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Clyde,
Thank you for your question. The bonnet, which is the piece directly under where the faucet is leaking will unscrew allowing you to pull the spout off and access the o-rings. I have attached a link to the parts breakdown for the model 155-WF below to help with your repair.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
I wrapped that small bushing right below the joint in several layers of duct tape to protect the finish - and was able to wrench this loose after soaking with WD-40. Once apart, there are 2 O-Rings (#12) that need replacement. QTY 10 for $2.49 at OSH.
Make sure you add silicone grease to the parts that move to slow break down over time. As with everything, they'll eventually need to be replaced again..
