We are having trouble with our model 400 ss dst a. It is difficult to find the shut off point, as it leaks unless perfectly centered in the off position. Also, it is very noisy to turn on and off and sounds like it is grinding against hard rubber.
Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your delta faucet. We recommend to clean the bottom puck on the valve cartridge assembly and retighten the bonnet nut to stop the leak. To do this, turn the water off at your shut off valve. Remove the handle. Unscrew the bonnet nut. Pull the valve cartridge out and clean the bottom puck on the valve cartridge assembly. Reinstall the valve cartridge assembly and retighten the bonnet by turning clockwise, to the right. Install the handle back on and turn the water back on. Test the faucet. If the faucet still leaks, we recommend to replace both the valve cartridge assembly, RP50587, and the bonnet nut, RP51503.

How to uninstall a spray hose from the faucet connection. I took off the clip and cannot pull it away from the faucet base line. Are there only O rings holding in place he connection.
Thank you for your question. The hose assembly is held on by the blue diverter clip, RP539997. Once this clip is removed, you can pull straight down on the hose to remove. You may have to use a bit of force. There are o-rings at the connection to give the connection more security.

Can the Model 400-SS-DST-A be used with a Brita water filter?
Hi Jeff S, Thank you for your question! We do not have any information on what size spout your Brita water filter would fit and we do not manufacture an adapter for the 400-SS-DST-L faucet. However, I can provide the thread size of the aerator for that model which is 15-16-27 Male threading. You would need to contact Brita for information on if the filter will fit or if they manufacture an adapter for the unit.
Best regards, Brandis

Disassemble, adjust of kitchen faucet model 400-SSWF-A
I have a Delta kitchen faucet, model 400-SSWF-A.
I installed it myself, and it has always "just barely" turned off, from the initial installation.
As time goes on, this "just barely" but reliable turning off of the water has increasingly irritated my wife and I. It does indeed turn OFF, but the placement of the handle is (as it has always been) in the corner of the "vee" of the possible handle movement.
I have removed the SET SCREW from the HANDLE.
I cannot remove the HANDLE.
I have tried to pry, using flat-blade screwdrivers, no help.
I have sprayed WD-40 under the handle, hoping to loosen...
Is there a procedure to remove the handle?
Thank you! -Mike-
Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. Once the set screw is removed there is nothing mechanical holding the handle in place. Often mineral build up can make removing the handle difficult. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and wrapping the towel around the handle and the set screw opening. Allow the solution to soak in over night if possible. This should help break up the mineral deposits making it easier to remove the handle.
