Do all of your lever handles use the set screw that uses a 3/32" hex bit?

I am not sure which model faucet I have, but it is about 11 years old and it appears to be like the 3583 series with lever handles that have the polished brass ends. I need to replace the cartridges, but want to be sure that I have the right tool so that I don't round off the hex set screw with the wrong size allen wrench.

Hi Ashedl, Thank you for your question. Not all of our 2 handle faucets use the same size set screw but the most commonly used size does take a 3/32" allen wrench.
Thanks,

What is the best method to tighten a widespread turn off valve after it has already been installed in a granite top.

Hot water valve is loose and the handle will not stay in the correct position. It constantly goes back further then it should.

Answer: 
Hi Jack, Thank you for your question. The entire end valve assembly is moving. You will need to tighten the nut that is underneath the sink on the threaded shank of the valve. Tightening this nut should hold the faucet to the countertop. Make sure to align the valve correctly before you tighten the nut.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Pat, Installing the RP24096 is done above the sink. You will need to shut off the water supply to the faucet first. The stem unit assembly is accessed by removing the handle and the bonnet nut holding the stem in place.

How to I Know Which Stem Unit Assembly

I am confused. What is the difference between the RP24096 and RP1740 Stem Unit Assemblies? And then there is the RP25513. I have an older 3544 Classic Faucet (2 handles)

Answer: 
Hi Spifi, Thank you for your question. The RP1740 stem assembly has a plastic stem and body and is used with faucets that generally have knob style handles that attach with a screw down through the handle and stem assembly. The RP24096 has a plastic body and a metal stem. This stem assembly is usually used on faucets with lever style handles that attach with a set screw from the side. The RP25513 is the same as the RP24096 except it also comes with 1/4 stops that limit the handle motion to 90 degrees.
The model 3544 should use the RP25513.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi lmnewcomb, Thank you for your question. The hot and cold sides of your faucet use the same cartridge. The 1/4 stop portion of the cartridge is placed to the back on the cold stem and to the front on the hot stem. Please use the attached parts breakdown to verify that your stem assemblies and 1/4 stops are positioned correctly. The cartridge position will be the same on a 4" center set or a widespread 2 handle faucet.
Thanks,
Dave

Rough in is out of square... Do you have a Stem that is adjustable?

The Rough is out of square... Do you have a Stem that is adjustable?

One handle is about 30 degrees off the other is around 15 degrees off... the Stems that came with the rough in do not seem to offer any sort of adjustment...

2) Do you offer stems that would allow me to compensate.... or do I have to rip out the rough in and start over....

3) Do the finished levers/handles offer any way to make adjustments to fine tune the adjustment to a good final look?

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Bill, We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your faucet. If your faucet uses the RP24096 stem assembly there is no adjustable cartridge or handle assembly available. The handle fits on the stem assembly one way and the cartridge mounts into the valve body either properly or incorrectly/reversed. You will have to straighten the end valve assemblies to straighten out the handles.
Thanks,
Dave

I personally have had some luck using white vinegar. It seems to dissolve the hard water deposits that sometimes cement faucet parts together. It's nontoxic, inexpensive, and already on hand in most homes. It also seems harmless to chrome and Brilliance faucet finishes.

Answer: 
Hi Dutch1, Thank you for your question. Try soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and wrapping the towel around the handle. The longer you let it soak in, the better the solution will work. This should help break up the mineral build up that is holding the handle on allowing it to be removed so you can make your repair.
Thanks,
Dave

How do I move the right hand stem stop 180° so it will line up?

Customer avatar

Steve

I am replacing the round clear handles on my Delta faucet with lever handles but the right hand stem stop is in wrong position to match with adapter. Left hand/hot lined up perfectly and works great but right/cold handle stem stop is at 10 oclock position so adapter for lever handle will not line up in correct positon to cut water off. Do I loosen stem nut and rotate stem assembly to line up?

Thanks

Answer: 
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. When switching from knobs to levers you will have to change the position of the cold water stem. You will have to remove the bonnet nut to turn the stem assembly. Rotate the stem assembly 180 degrees so that it matches the hot water side. This should get your handles working correctly.
Thanks,
Dave

Thank you for your input. I replaced the stem assembly on the hot water side. There was no spring in that side either and when I tried using the spring and rubber seat, the nut would not screw down. That's when the Home Depot man told me that if there was no spring in there before, it would not need one. I removed the spring, put the seat back in and the nut screwed down. The hot water side works perfectly now. Truly, there was no spring on the cold water side either, only the rubber seat and it worked perfectly for years. I guess I'll just have to call a plumber to solve this dilemma.

Answer: 
Hi Judy, The seats and springs must be used together for the faucet to function properly. The spring creates the tension that keeps the seat in contact with the bottom of stem assembly so that the water shuts off completely.
The faucet will develope drips more often if the spring is not used.

Referencing your answer to my question regarding stem assembly pn1740.

Customer avatar
by
Judy
Long Beach, CA, USA
Regarding your previous answer about pn1740, you mention replacing the rubber gasket and spring. My faucet didn't have a spring in it and when I talked to the plumbing expert at Home Depot he said that some Delta faucets had springs and some didn't. He said if I didn't see a spring in my faucet, then it didn't need one. Of all the years I've been in this home, there has never been a problem without a spring before. Are your instructions that I should now use a spring where there has been none before?

Answers

Answer: 
To the best of my knowledge, in every instance where an an RP1740 is used, there is a seat and spring required under the stem. However, I am always learning. There may be an instance where no seat and spring are used; but, as they form the sealing surface with the stainless steel face of the bottom of the stem, I do not see how there couldn't be one used in every case. If you look at the parts diagram of any 2 handle DELTA faucet, you can see the seat spring and stem configuration.
I hope this helps.

Answer: 
Hi Judy, Thank you for your follow up question. Mr. Lucky is correct. The seat and spring should both be used with the RP1740 stem assembly. When installing the seats and springs it is easiest to put them together first and install at the same time using the end of an allen wrench or screwdriver to slide them into the hole in the valve body. The wider end of the spring goes on the bottom, tapered end facing up, this is then covered by the seat.

Dave
