There are hopefully shutoff valves for this faucet under the sink. If so, make sure both of the valves are open.

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!


  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


    If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
    Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
    But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

    Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
    This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
    How it happens:
    For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
    So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
    To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
    This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
    The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
    Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

    I have a Delta 1700 bath faucet that now only puts out lukewarm water, though it used to get very hot. We have tried to adjust it according to the instructions on the Delta web site, but it doesn't work. ...


    Is it a single handle faucet and the dial behind the handle have you removed it and turn it a 1/8 to 1/4 turn and reinstalled. That will control the temp of hot and cold.

    How to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet


    Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
    up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
    this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

    Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
    on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

    O= hottest 7=cold

    See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.
