Bath tube plumbing is making vibrating sound then shutting off

The bath tube has a facet / handle shower unit mounted together. One must sit in the tub and take the hand held unit to shower. The problem is that a week ago the water would shut off soon after coming on. I would switch the water to run from the facet then back to the hand held shower unit. It seem to work. Two days ago it shut off completely. Today I turned on the water and it began to flow at low volume rate. When I increased the volume it began making a vibrating sound and the water stopped flowing. I removed the shower unit thinking that there was air in the line causing the impass. It did not work. I have turned on all of the up-stairs facets at the same time thinking that if there was air in the line it would pass. All other facets operated properly but the bathroom tub facet.

Replace the cartridge even if its new. The vibrating is from the internal workings of the stem. It also effects the volume of water.


good luck, Phil

Installed bath 3 handle unit. hot handle is stiff and hard to turn, shower diverter is loose. How can I loosen the one and tighten the other? I'm sure it's probably the same adjustment


The handle adapters can be tightened by turning them clockwise and loosened by turning them counterclockwise. If the faucet manifold may need to be lined up parallel behind the wall and moved forward as well. Here is the parts breakdown for your faucet,

How to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet


Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

No cold water coming out of bath/shower, only really hot water


Is it a Delta brand, single handle valve? If so, chances are you need a new "stem" and can be purchased at any plumbing suply store or home store. You will need to shut the water off to the house to do this (unless you are certain you know where the shutoffs are). Good luck
