Valve in Delta faucet closes as water warms up

I have two Delta faucets in the bathroom that have a problem with the valves closing, shutting off the flow of water. The faucets are three years old and the problem first surfaced in the hot water side but now seems to occur with the cold water side as well. When turning on the hot water, the flow would be normal, but as the water warmed up, it seemed the valve slipped closed, restricting the water flow to a trickle. It now seems to be occurring on the cold water side as well. It seems that some O rings or something have gotten worn out. Am I on the right track, and if so, how difficult is the repair?

Yes, you are on the right track, but Deltas use a fancier kit inside them. It is quite a bit pricier than an O ring, but will solve the problem. It is not hard to install at all.

How do i fix my leaky moen bathroom faucet?


Moen faucets are easy to repair. The cartridge you're looking for is most likely the #1224 cartridge, sold in pairs, and available at almost any home improvement store.

Shut the water off, unscrew the handle, remove the nut that holds the old, cartridge in, swap it out, and put the handle back. The whole job should take you about ten minutes.

Good Luck!

Go to delta website, take a picture of faucet with your cell phone and send. They should be able to identify and send you the parts. Meanwhile you'll have to turn water on and off from the emergency shut off valve under the sink. If it looks like the picture, it's probably the rubber seat and spring. If you don't want to wait go to your local "hardware" store. There may be someone there to help you. Bring the stem or cartridge, along with the rubber seat and spring. Don't use cold water while stem is removed. Turn cold off as well to prevent a mishap.

Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

Hot water on bathroom faucet won't get hot only luke warm


That is a type where the water is mixed inside the valve and the valve has gotten worn or loose inside. Replace it or take it apart to see what isn't working properly.

I have a two-handle Delta faucet that drips.  With both handles turned completely to off, the faucet drips at a about 1 drip every 15 seconds


sounds like you need to replace the valve seats. if you shut the water off and remove the handles you will see the valves. you have to remove them and under that you should see these little black things. they come out but have springs under them so be careful. the black things are the valve seats. i would start by replacing them

Bathroom sink pipes came apart and flooded our bathroom. cant find shut off valve to sink


Hi, W/D here.
Almost always, the shutoff valves are at the wall where water is supplied to the faucet. If the problem is with the drain piping, and the faucet valves don't leak, you don't have to shut off the water. Simply replace the drain piping and tighten it up. If you need any repair parts, you can get them from any hardware store. Please repost if there is anything else that I can help you with.
Good luck, and best regards,

My bathroom faucet wont turn off. I can turn the handle but the water still comes out. the faucet has 2 handles


Hi, W/D here.
You'll need to shut the water off under the sink. Usually when the water won't shut off, the washer (or cartridge) is damaged or loose. With the water shut off, open the valve. Remove the handle and trim piece that surrounds the stem. With a wrench or socket, remove the valve cartridge from the body. The part that you need to unscrew isn't the first nut that you see when you look down the shaft, but rather, the ut just past that. The first nut is the packing gland adjustment, the second holds the two halves of the valve together. Usually, it isn't hard to get these apart. Pull the part out of the valve body and check the washer at the base of the stem. It is probably loose. Tighten it back down, or if it is damaged, replace it. While the valve is apart, stick your little finger in the valve hole and feel the valve seat. It should feel smooth and free of nicks and grooves. Should you need any parts, you can take your old parts with you when you go to the hardware store, and match them up. If the seat is damaged, you may need a 'seat removal tool' also available at the hardware store. A washer is the easiest repair. If the damage is much worse that thet, consider a repair kit. I will have the upper valve assembly that you pulled out, washer and replacement seat, along with the gaskets.
Reinstall your valve, making sure that the stem is backed out as if full open. If you put the valve assembly together with the valve stem 'closed', you can damage the washer. Once all back together, adjust your packing gland. It should be adjusted to be just tight enough to keep water from flowing out alongside the valve stem without being difficult to operate. Reassemble the trim, replace the handle. Close the faucet valve and open the water supply valve. That should do it.

The unit has a croosbar connecting the hot and cold water. How do you remove the crossbar to replace the faucet


Do we want to remove the faucet from the top of the sink?

First shut-off the water via the two valves under the sink. Then un-thread the hoses from the bottom of the sink. Sometimes it is possible to do with ordinary house tools but more than likely you will need to purchase a basin wrench for about $10. This wrench will allow you easy access to the bottom of the faucet.

Then, using the same wrench, un-thread the nut that is threaded on the same threads as the hose. This nut if probably pretty tight and will take some effort.

Replacing is the exact opposite except when replacing be sure to use plumbers putty on the bottom of the faucet as a means to keep water from running under the faucet base and ruining your cabinet.

How do I, myself, fix a faucet leak?


Faucets in general operate either with a one handle valve stem or valve stems that uses small pieces of rubber to precent the water flow. In a single handle model this is usually caused by mineral deposits building up and the valve not being able to fully restrict the flow of water. The fix here is usually a new stem. On models that use a two handle system and do have replaceable valve stems one must get a repacement seat from a hadware store and reinstall the stem. In extreme cases the valve body may need to be ground internally and will require a professional. If you do not a have replaceable stems than the only alternative is a new faucet. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.
