Question about Delta Commercial 400-WFELHHDF HDF Series Single Handle Kitchen Faucet w...

1 Answer

Single handle Delta Kitchen Faucet

The handle will only shut the water off when it it is on the right side. This would normally be the position for cold water. I took the small red/blue cover of the set screw to try and adjust the position. Now the water shuts of in the right position but at the top not bottom. Please help. Also how does the tap come apart to get at bthe cartridge.
Thanks
John

The red/blue cover just hides the screw that allows you to remove the handle.

Turn off the water :-)

Remove the handle, you will see that part of the faucet is a large half moon nut. sometimes you can loosen these with your hands, but most times you will need a tool. To avoid damaging the finish with the tool, use smooth jaw tools or protect the nut with a thin piece of rubber/cardboard etc between the jaws of the tool and the nut.

You can then remove the ball/stem, the washers and springs.
Replace the stem, washers and springs and reassemble just as you took it apart.
Be carefull that the little "nipple" lines up with the notches properly.

Take care that you know exactly how it came apart and which direction each prt was facing.

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

I have an older single handle Delta shower valve, and I am only able to get good water pressure on cold water (which is opposite of the normal right hand). Can you suggest a solution?


A rebuild kit for a shower is pretty cheap for delta. the actual ball behind the handle maybe wore and not allowing it to seat properly and restricing water flow hot side.

Also if you take it appart the 2 washers and springs you might as well replace them also.

Replace washers and springs and the ball with shaft that handle fits to.

Shut off water before taking appart.

there should be, probably a diverter problem inside the spout assembly. It is stuck between settings letting water travel through the hose and out the sprayer. It is not returning fully to resting position.

Valve in Delta faucet closes as water warms up


Yes, you are on the right track, but Deltas use a fancier kit inside them. It is quite a bit pricier than an O ring, but will solve the problem. It is not hard to install at all.
