Answer: 
Hi Moe, Thank you for your question. To stop the leak you will also want to replace the RP4993 seats and springs that are located directly underneath the RP1740 stem assembly in the valve body. The stem assembly rotates on top of the rubber seal to turn the water on and off and causes wear over time.

Answer: 
Hi Arnold, Thank you for your question. The RP1740 will have a plastic stem where the handle attaches, the RP24096 will have a metal stem where the handle attaches. The rest of the assembly is the same. The RP1740 is used on knob style handles that screw onto the stem assembly from the top. The RP24096 is used with lever style handles that have a set screw that screws in from the side.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Trouble, Thank you for your question. To remove the seats and springs from your model 2131 faucet first shut off your water supply to the faucet. Pry off the hot/cold buttons on top of the handle to gain access to the screw holding on the handle. Remove the screw and the handle. Next unscrew the bonnet nut holding down the stem assembly, it will unscrew counter-clockwise. Once the bonnet nut is removed pull up on the stem assembly to remove it from the valve body. The seats and springs will be located in the valve body directly underneath the stem assembly. Use a small screwdriver to remove the seats and springs.
Here is a link to the parts breakdown of the model 2131 to help with your repair.

Hi moegershy, Thank you for your question. You will want to replace the RP4993 seats and springs which are located directly below the RP1740 stem assembly to stop the drip. The RP1740 does not come with the seats and springs. Please remember to only use genuine Delta replacement parts in your faucet.

How do I limit the travel of faucet handle?

Customer avatar
by
Jim
CT
I am replacing my older stem assemblies on my two-faucet bathroom sink. The orginal stems had an extra stop piece inserted to limit the travel of the handle to 90 degrees (handle points straight forward when fully on). The replacement stem (RP1740C) has no such insert, allowing a 180 deg travel. The old stop insert does not fit in the new stem. Is there an alternate method to stop the handle travel past 90 degrees?.

Thanks

Hi Jim,

Thank you for your question. To do what your require, you will need cartridges with quarter turn stops. We recommend Delta Faucet model # RP24096.

Can I rebuild/overhaul RP24096 stem cartridge?

Customer avatar
by
Shaun
Lafayette, LA
I recently replaced the stem cartridge (hot side, RP24096) as well as seat and spring for my Delta Kitchen Faucet model 2467. When I inspected the stem cartridge that was supposed to have caused the leak, I did not notice any visible defect in it except for barely visible wear mark on the steel bottom. My question to you is - what can I do to rebuild/overhaul the stem cartridge so that I'll be able to reuse it?

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Shaun, Thank you for your question. The seats and springs are the most likely issue when a faucet is leaking out of the spout. The cartridge often does not have to be changed in this situation. Cleaning the stem assembly and reinstalling with new seats and springs will usually stop the leak. The is no rebuild method/kit to the stem assembly itself, only replacement.

Dave

The handle on tub has broken off. How do I remove the RP1740 stem?

Customer avatar
by
Terri
Waverly, OH 45690, USA
I have the Neostyle white porcelain with chrome base handle which says HOT in black. It's two separate handles, with a spout which has the round pull down under it to turn on the shower, in the middle. None of the three are attached together. This was hit accidentally and broke off. White piece is in the handle, which I removed, and looks like the end of the RP1740 stem. What is the best way to remove the stem now that it's broken off at the tip? Can I use the RP25513 with the copper tip instead. If I do decide to replace the both handles, also with the neostyle, just in chrome or otherwise. What size would these be considered on the tub? It looks like the H27 is for a sink and could possibly be smaller then my tub handles but I'm not sure of this as the H27 also looks exactly like the tub handle. Same location for the set screw, same base shape & same grooves on the bottom of the base for attaching to next part. Also, I purchased the RP4993 seat and springs. Is this all I will need, the RP25513 and RP4993? Do I need any other o'rings or seals? Any extra advice welcome. Thank You

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Terri, Thank you for your question. The part that you see exposed is probably the RP18627 stem extender. This piece fits on top of the RP1740 stem assembly. The chrome trim sleeve that covers this piece will unscrew and give you access to the stem and stem extender. Neo Style handles still available for your faucet include the H25, H27, and the H46. Substitute the RP24096 for the RP25513, and with the RP4993 will update the inner workings of the faucet.
Thanks,
Dave

Handles on faucet are now backwards?

Customer avatar
by
Corey
I have a tub faucet, not sure of the model #, but it's from 2000 and it's the simple hot/cold 180 degree rotating handle on each side of the faucet type. Both sides started to leak, so I bought two replacement stems to fix them. Problem is, when the faucet's off, now both handles face inward instead of outward.

If I flip the stems 180 degrees, then the handles point in the correct direction when off, but rotate away from the tub to turn on, instead of rotating towards the tub as they previously did. I compared the old stem to this replacement stem, and they're different.

On the original stem, the flat side of the top part lines up with the opening in the metal plate. On the new part, the flat side lines up with the covered part of the metal base. They're fundamentally different designs, so there's no way I can see to flip/rotate either the stem or the handles to replicate the original operation.

Am I missing something here, or am I just out of luck?

Answer: 
Hi Corey, Thank you for your question. It sounds like the stem assemblies are not oriented properly. The raised portion or the stop on top of the stem assembly should be facing to the right on both the hot and cold water sides. Once these are positioned properly your handles should work in the right directions.
Thanks,
Dave
