Drain pop-up funnction not working

I have a new grohe 20.069 atrio wideset faucet. the pop-up drain isn't going up and down. the pop up extension down into the drain slips past the rod that pushes the pop-up whenever the rod goes down. there seems to be a gap down there?

The stopper portion of the drain should have an adjustable threaded leg with a small nut to secure the setting after you have adjusted its lenght to open and close the drain. Make sure you adjust the lenght to the highest setting for better drainage. The linkage must be connected and tight between the vertical lift rod and the horizontal rod that enters the drain to make the stopper move up and down.

Grohe drain stopper installation

Try cleaning drain with a length of wire. Strip insulation back about an inch. Turn exposed wire back to form a hook and put down drain and spin, then remove from drain, repeat until hook comes out fairly
clean. Then put drain cleaner down drain, follow instructions with drain cleaner. This should remove gunk that is preventing stopper from working correctly.

What tool is needed to unscrew/dismantle the Hans Grohe Axor Starck joystick tap; and to stop dripping is there a washer to replace or does one have to replace the whole joystick cartridge? Thanks Craig

This is a pretty difficult model to work on because the bonnet nut is so slim. The way I do it is to dismantle the faucet from the sink. Remove the cap and handle (2mm set screw) and lay the faucet on it's side. Protect the finish by putting it on a towel and lay it on a firm surface such as a table or work bench. Leaving the body and spout on the table, hang the top of the faucet over the edge of the work surface. Carefully lock vice grips onto the nut. Be careful to use just enough tension to secure it to the nut. Dont go too hard, or you will just chew up the nut. Then lightly tap the channel locks with a small hammer or mallet to turn the nut counter clockwise. Do this while pressing down on the faucet body to keep it from jumping. Lots of little taps will loosen the nut which is locked in by mineral deposits from leaking. Once the nut is moving you no longer need to tap it, as it can then be turned by using your hand to turn the vise grip pliars.

Look for an old o-ring in the nut where it meets the top of the cartridge and replace it with the supplied new one. Also replace the two seat washers that sit in the faucet body at the base of the cartridge with the supplied new ones. The newer cartridge will be smaller diameter, but you will see that the height is the same and it works perfectly.

Lastly, if this is all too difficult, Hansgrohe will allow you to send your faucet in under the warranty. We will repair, test, and send it back to you. You can call us at 800-334-0455 for service in USA, or contact us through the web site

I have a brand new moen faucet 2 handled chrome model.. i was cleaning it and the pop down plug became detattched.. now i can't get the plug out or the water thats being held in the sink.. what do i do

Take a look under the sink. The mechanical pop up has likely become disconnected from the rod that goes into the drain to control the pop up plug. You should be able to just reconnect it and the drain should work fine. If this doesn't solve the problem please let me know. Please remember to rate this solution, your feedback is important. Have a great day.

You will have to shut the water off to your tub first. On the top part of the handle, you will notice a round disc. A utility knife works well for popping this plug button off. After that is removed, you should notice a phillips screw that holds the handle on. Unscrew this to remove the handle. After that, the faucets vary a little. Some have a nut that unscrews to remove the handle extension, while others just have one long screw that holds the handle and extension in place. You may also want to check with price pfister to see if there is a special tool for removing the cartridge (as this is sometimes the case). They will also be able to send you a new cartridge out. I have never had a problem with warranty on their cartridges. Also, the new cartridge will typically have removal and install instructions with it.

Get under the sink inside the cabinet to do this. First, take loose and remove the connection of the arm that goes into the drain tail piece. It is on the back side of the drain piece and connects to the rod that you pull up on the faucet when you close the drain. Next, loosen and remove the nut on the back side of the drain tail piece that holds the drain lever in place. When you remove this, it will allow the old pop up plug to be removed. You put the new pop up plug in by reversing the proceedure. Make sure the rod gets inserted into the new drain pop up and the nut is snug enough to make a water tight seal when you reassemble it. Reconnect the pull rod and you are done.
