Hi you 1st need to isolate both hot & cold water supplies to bath.lift the lever up & underneath the lever you will see s screw unscrew it & be careful not let it go down the plug hole, so a good idea at this point is to put in the plug!!!

Once the screw is loosened you will be able to remove the lever.
then there is a cover which will need to be undone & removed seeing as its gold you will have to be careful undoing this as it may be stiff, sometimes a few taps with the endle of a srewdriver handle will loosen it enough so you can remove it. once this is removed you will gain access to the hexagonal part of the cartridge, so yo uwill need to have the appropriate spanner or adjustable spanner. you will need to hold against the tap when undoing it so as the whole tap body doesnt move.once the cartridge is removed the new unit can be fitted in reverse order.it sounds simple but being Gold you have to be careful you dont damage it whilst attempting to remove the old one. Tip put some silicone gtrease around the o rings on the new unit as it will make it easier to remove if you ever have to remove it again?

Kindly

Richie

Our bath taps which are a mixer with shower attachment stay really hot if you put the hot on first or really cold if you put the cold on first any idea how to adjust so we can have warm water when turning...


you make no sense. From the picture the water "mixer" is the center lever or is it a diverter valve for the shower and water nozzle below???
The knobs are for hot and cold water??

I have a vitra minimax mixer tap needing a new cartridge. The problem is how to get into the mixer to change the cartridge - any advice on how to get into the tap much appreciated.


I've just done this. It is much the same as stated above. Isolate the water by turning the service valves below the sink 1/4 turn (Off). They look like flat-head screw heads or may have levers on (usually red & blue). Open the tap to check & drain the water in the tap. Below the tap handle there is a little round cap with the (red & blue) hot/cold indicator. This is plastic, so carefully prise it out (plug the sink first!). Now you can insert a 2.5mm Allen key in the hole and loosen a grub screw - you shouldn't need to remove it, just enough to release & remove the lever head. Next, unscrew the domed top. I used duct tape for extra grip as there was a bit of limescale. Now the Hex bolt is exposed. You need a 32mm spanner for this. Maybe grip the tap to avoid damaging it or the sink. Under the bolt is the cartridge. It should just pull out, but I had to struggle. Inspect & change your cartridge or washers - depending on what the problem is. My tap was held to the sink with a couple of bolts and had flexible hoses, so I took the opportunity to loosen the body, clean the limescale ring/dirt under the tap body and remount the it. You may as well clean / descale the other parts too. Now just reverse the above to put the tap back together. Open and close the tap to check for leaks. If there's still a problem, check the cartridge is properly seated and the washers are all good etc.

Moen - Single lever bath tub faucet - cold water only


moen does not have a ball and washers....sounds like a Delta maybe. Moen uses cartridges. Either way sounds like a balancing spool problem....but you will need to make sure of the right name for the faucet to get the parts.

Leaking single lever kitchen tap


on most of the single handle faucets there is an erasure like button ( may have a hot and cold blue and red indicator or be silver ) usually located right under the faucet arm on the manifold chrome sleeve or back behind the arm or it could have a large ring nut over the doam of the lever take your hand and feel the area that covers the area where the spout arm swivels and feel for the button or take your fingers and fel the to of the lever doam

if you find the button just take a sharp screw driver( be sure to plug the drain holes and turn hot and cold water off under sink) pry the button off and use a hex wrench and loosten

if no button then there has to be a large nut on top you may seee two grooves oppsoite each other wheich would mean a special tool

use an adjustable wrench (put cloth ofer chrome to protect and turn counter clock wise( the ring nut will not be very thick

after removing you should be able to replace the cartridge

good luck

Mixer taps


you didnt mention which side hot or cold?
it sounds like its scaled up & the o ring has dried out so it could be a case of replacing o ring & regreasing. ifits when you turn either hot or cold & its stiff then a replacement cartridge will required
