Pull out shower handle

Pull out Price Pfister valve screw in the handle has separated from the valve. How do I pop the chrome cover to access the small screw to reattach to the valve? I don't want to just pry it off.

    Actually, the decorative chrome face screwed onto the plate, though it looked it would require prying off as you suggested. Without you knowing the model and type, I can appreciate your suggestion. Thanks for the quick response.

HI jazzman45,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Pull out Price Pfister valve screw in the handle has separated from the valve. How do you pop the chrome cover to access the small screw to reattach to the valve? You don't want to just pry it off.

If you really don't want to pry it off then ask someone else to do it. That's all there is to it. Just be carefull not to scratch the chrome. From now on any time the handle feels loose retighten before it falls off and save yourself some grief. You'll find it's really easy.

Feel free to contact me again
Don't forget to give me a rating on fixya before you leave.

I have an 11 year old, single handle shower control that when turned off has dripping. I have taken off the handle, etc and am at the wall. What is the next step or steps?

After you remove the chrome collar and plastic collar washer (behind the faucet handle), pry the beauty plate off the wall. Turn off the house main water supply. Remove the four screws and washer holding the cartridge and valve stem in place. Save the metal washer under the four screws for use with the new cartridge. Replace the stem/cartridge assembly and secure with the saved metal washer and four screws. Reinstall beauty plate, collar & collar washer, then handle.

I have a Price Pfister Model no. 808 DK00 single handle bath tub/shower faucet. I am only getting hot water coming out when the handle is turned on. This problem just started. It was working fine for about...

It's likely that you have some sediment that has accumulated in the cold water valve and has clogged it. The model number you have cited above is only for the trim (rather than for the valves behind it). Assuming that you have a Price Pfister valve, they don't have built in filters, so you're probably going to have to either clean or replace the valve.

No hot water.

remove handle (screw driver) then remove plate (same tool). just inside the valve is a small round bit of plastic with little teeth on it. this the temp control. remove this by popping it out and turn it about a quarter turn clockwise. this will allow the handle to turn more into the hot zone.
