Question about Faucets

1 Answer

Eljer slantback lavatory faucet

I am unable to pull the outer chrome plated handle of the faucet hot water cutoff (06890630 part no.) from the brass adapter (06890550) underneath. Normally, the metal retainer (06890552) can be pushed in, and the chrome handle (sleeve) will pull off. It appears to be corroded to the brass unit adapter. I have drilled a hole above the adapter and squirted liquid wrench over the top of the adapter, but am still unable to get the two parts (handle and adapter) to separate. Therefore, I cannot remove the stem and bonnet assembly to repair it.

Use baking soda to remove the corrosion mix a little in apaper cup and brush on with toth brush

I do not have a clear picture but can you not put two screw drivers under the lip of the chrome and pry up

One other thought is to tap the top adapter with a hammer to see if it will break loose

    Hot water handle is loose, how do I fix?


    The link to the parts diagram is attached for your reference. It seems that you can tighten the handle by turning it.

    You need a #1225 replacement cartridge. Pop the cap off of the handle. Use phillips screwdriver to remove the handle screw. Pull the handle off. Next, unscrew the two screws holding the cover plate on. After removing plate, there should be two integral stops, one on each side of the valve. Close the valves using a straight slot screwdriver. Pull on the brass cartridge spindle to ensure that the water is off. Remove the stop tube, which is a chrome cylinder at the center of the valve body. Look for a brass retainer clip at the top of the cylindrical portion of the valve body where the handle connects. It has a small hole and after you pull it out, you will see that it horse shoe shaped. Use your pliers or an awl stuck through the hole to pull the clip out. Note the position of your cartridge. There is a notch on the end of one side of the brass spindle at the center of the cartridge. Make note of its position. If you install it and get hot and cold reversed, just take the handle back off, and spin the brass spindle 180 degrees. The replacement cartridge comes with a white plastic tool designed to make removal easier. Use it. After loosening with the plastic tool, take your pliers and grab the brass stem. Pull as straight as you can. If cartridge will not budge, you might need a Moen cartridge removal tool. Do not spray with WD-40 or Liquid Wrench unless you like that taste in your water. If your clip won't go back on, it's because you didn't align the two ears on the cartridge. The ears should be at three o'clock and six o'clock. The cartridge must also be pushed in all the way. Good luck!

    2-handle faucet handles both rotate "on" counter=clockwise


    Here's the solution from Delta:
    On a two-handle kitchen or lavatory faucet, if the handles rotate in the wrong direction, simply rotate the right stem stop assembly 180 degrees. This will change the rotation of the handle to the other direction.
