Delta pull-up bathtub drain problem

I have Delta pull-up bathtub drain that is broken. I can see that the pin is missing that holds the drain stopper up when you turn it clockwise. How do I take this apart to fix? I can screw the knob off that pulls the stopper up, but can't get the actual stopper off. It just freely spins left or right.

Any solutions to my problem? Thanks in advance.

Hi Bigoz,

Drop the drain plug down about half way and try turning it counter clockwise. If you get no resistance after a full turn you will probably need to cut or break it out. If the pin is missing I'm guessing this is what you'll have to do. This answer assumes you have a lift and turn style drain.

Please ratre this response and Good Luck, Phil

    Pull the drain cover up and hold it up. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and grasp the shaft to prevent it from turning. Now turn the drain lid counterclockwise and it should unthread off the shaft.

My bathtub is draining very slow and I cannot figure out how to remove the stopper to clean out the problem (which is most likely a lot of hair). It is brand new...only like 6 months old...Delta brand.

On most drains, the top of the drain will unscrew, and then you can get to the rest of it. Sometimes you will have to take a pair of pliers to turn it, but it should come off.

Turn off the water to the home. You need tthe stem beneath the handle. Remove the handle after locating the set screw, remove the cylindrical beauty cover, and unthread the retaining nut to access the valve stem. Take it to a plumbing supply house or home store to make certain of the match.

I recently move into a condo that has a Delta single lever Series 1400 single lever bathtub fixture. The bathtub has a shower nozzle that looks like it has been used. I cannot find where there is a button,...

Is there a button on the tub filler? How about the spout on the tub, does it lift up? If there is not a tub spout then it should be shower only, if it has a tub spout it has to have a lifter of some sort, the foto I found showed the little button lifter. Hope this helps.

I have a Delta push down bathtub drain stop, but it is worn and does not stop the water. It does not unscrew as far as I can see how do I get it apart without removing the tube which I can not do?

There are two types of tub drain stoppers for the delta brand - lift & turn and toe tap.

Lift and Turn:
The lift & turn stopper for the bathtub unscrews counterclockwise while in the full up position.

Toe Tap:
The toe tap stopper does also but if the cap may unscrew from it before the entire stopper comes out. In that case, there is a nut that is now exposed and can be accessed to unscrew the assembly.

If either of these is "spinning" without unscrewing, the threads are stripped and you would need to exert upward pressure while unscrewing in hopes of uncoupling this from the bath waste. If that doesn't work you would have to unscrew the bath waste flange from the drain pipe.
This will require access under the tub. I hope this answer the question for you. Thank you for using FIXYA. Jeff

The lever that you are moving controls a water diverter in the pipe. It may be broken and need replacement. I'd ask your landlord to call a plumber. Good luck!

My press-to-close, press-to-open bathtub stopper needs to be replaced. How is it removed? Does it unscrew or is it pulled up? I have a three sided shower stall bathtub combination manufacturer unknown.

It is threaded in.

Most times they are installed hand tight and can be removed by grasping and turning counter-clockwise.

Channel locking pliers may be used to remove the existing stopper, it will be discarded anyway. The new unit only needs to be hand tight.

Good luck

Bath tub drain

You need to replace the overflow cover with the lever on it.You can replace the entire piece or just the faceplate.There is a spring on most of these that holds the lever in place when thrown and that is the piece that is broken causing your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
