Make sure the drip is continuous because the shower head will drip for a few minutes until it empties out. Replace the cartridge or washer kit if it keeps dripping.

Hidden under the lever is a little hex screw. Use an appropriate hex a.k.a. "Allen" wrench to remove the handle. You might want to shut down the water service first to save your shower until later.

CANT FIND HOW TO REMOVE THE HANDLE TO ADJUST OR REMOVE THE SCALD GUARD


1-For a metal lever handle it will have a allen head screw at the base of the lever to remove with a 1/8" allen wrench. If you can not see screw it may have a cap covering it to remove.

2-To remove plastic acrylic caps remove plastic cap to acess screw to remove handle.

Once handle is off remember the location of the dial to adjust it counter clockwise to increase hot water flow. Slide indicator dial back on stem and reposition about a 1/4" turn counter clockwise and recheck for change in temperature.

If you need any more help refer to the link provided for a digram of faucet. Go to parts down load and view faucet parts view. I hope this will be helpful in solving your issue.

On your single handle the first thing you do is remove the handle. To do this locate allen set screw on handle and select the right size allen wrench to fit it. Loosen set screw and pull handle out away from wall to remove it. There should be a plastic disc on the handle stem, slid it out to remove it.Remove chrome sleeve..On valve body there are marking that show hot or cold settings. Seperate teeth on geared flanges and rotate set stop toward h mark on valve body. Each tooth will change temperature about three degrees. Make trial setting and reassemble and try it out. If you want it hotter just repeat adjustments. If you try to go to far you will not be able to mesh gears,simply back off alittle bit and try again.Hope this helps you. Thanks

Leaking hot water from delta single handle facuet


I have to assume you've unscrewed the face plate, not removed it, because you can't do that without taking the handle off. Delta handle usually come off by unscrewing an allen (set) screw just under the handle itself. Sometimes these are covered by a plastic plug.

Occasionally, even after you've completely removed the set screw, the handle still won't come off. Wiggling and pulling for a few minutes will generally get it off. If not, then a hacksaw, new handle and new cartridge are the answer.

If the allen screw is stripped and that's why it won't ome off, see above.

Good Luck.

Delta T13090 faucet shower head working at the same time.


The only possible explaination is that the water is finding it easier to go up than down. Water is lazy, just like me. ;)

Use an allen key to remove the tub spout. It's underneath and awkward. Once the allen key is loose, the spout just slides off. Try running the water. This may solve your problem and all you'll need is a new tub spout. If not.....

Turn the water off to the house.

Use an allen key to remove the handle.

Use a phillips to remove the trim plate (2 screws). Cut the silicone around the trim if it's there (which, in a proper installation it shouldn't be, but...)

Unscrew the nut (usually chrome) holding the cartridge into the brass body of the valve. The cartridge pulls straight out. Check for restriction in the ports of the cartridge itself. Check for restriction in the line going down to the tub spout. If you can't find anything, replace the cartridge.

Reassemble & Enjoy!
