I have a leaking shower faucet (Delta Monitor - 1427-NN I think) and was trying to replace the cartridge, but I cannot get the handle (H79 I think) off. With some WD40 I was able to remove the set screw, but the handle still feels like there is something holding it on. Is there another trick to removing the handle other than the set screw?
Hi John, Thank you for your question. Once the set screw is removed there is nothing mechanical holding the handle to the cartridge. Often mineral build up will make removing the handle difficult. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and then wrapping the towel around the handle assembly. Allow to solution to soak in, the longer the better to break up the mineral deposits. This should allow you to more easily remove the handle.

Leaking shower head repair
I own this shower head and it is leaking terribly from the actual spout head holes. Do I need to replace the cartridge and would that be part rp19804?
Hi Kristen, We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your faucet. You are correct that you will want to replace the cartridge the RP19804 to fix the leak.
