Danz cartridge removal

I have a problem with a danz nsf 61/9. A bunch of small gold colored beads started coming out in my fixtures throughout the house. I determined after shutting off the water softner that it was the root of that problem.
However now my kitchen tap will not pass water very quickly. I removed the screens to clean them and even with them removed the water is extremely slow.
I think I need to change the cartridge but I can't figure out how to remove it.
There is a set screw behind the hot cold symbol which I removed but the handle will not come off.
Can you help me figure out how to get to the cartridge
Mark

Loosening the set screw behind the small plastic hot/cold plug will allow you to lift the handle straight up. You may need to jiggle it a little bit or twist it, just pull straight up with the faucet handle down and centered. Once the handle comes off, Then the collar should thread off exposing the inner workings of the faucet. You should then be able to unthread a bunch more components and washers until the cartridge top is exposed (depends somewhat on whether it is a pullout hose or seperate sprayer...not sure exactly what model you have but this is the standard for a single handle kitchen faucet...)

Here is a link to a page that shows how your (hopefully your) faucet goes together... also includes the re-order info for cartridge (#8)...

I would also check the supply stops to make sure they are not clogged, because it is definetly a sediment problem.

Goog answer triprea, have to agree with the sediment problem. My dad had a very similar issue and the sediment had clogged up most of the faucets in the house. I dipped the aerators from my faucets in vinegar for about an hour and it helped clean them up.

Of course Danze facuets are just as prone to clog from this problem as Moen & Delta, so it's at least not the manufacturers problem.

Water is dripping out the back of the the Danza 61/9 kitchen faucet


Just in case you need to do so.
  1. Turn the water off. The water control knob is located under your sink and is connected to the drain. Turn it counterclockwise to turn off the water.

  2. 2

    Open the faucet to relieve any differences in pressure. Pull up on the faucet as you would if you were turning it on.

  3. 3

    Plug the drain of the sink with its stopper to prevent any parts from going down it.

  4. 4

    Turn the faucet handle sharply to one side to reveal a small cover plate. Pry the plate off carefully with a flat-bladed screwdriver.

  5. 5

    Unscrew the screw that is located behind the cover plate with a 4 mm allen key.

  6. 6

    Lift the handle off and remove the cap beneath it.

  7. 7

    Firmly grip the exposed cartridge with your hands and pull up to remove it.

I would get the repair kit before you start. The video below is not your brand faucet but the o-ring replacement is about the same. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AipEYoYiIhc

Bought a home, main kitchen faucet is a Danze NSF


I'm not familiar with a NSF 61/9, but I've used several other models. I believe these are all ceramic disc valve. They almost never wear out. If you remove the handle and the trim cap or bonnet, there should be a nut or adjusting ring you can tighten. Don't over do it. The handle give you quite a bit more leverage than the small tap when it is removed. Here is Danze web site and you can look up your exact model number and see a exploded parts list: www.danze.com

Removing gold toned grab bars and fixtures from old whirlpool tub


sometimes a plumber leaves an access panel to get at the drain and jets under the tub---it's usually small and may not be enough to get a body in---usually the grab bars are permanently glued or siliconed on a fiberglass/plastic tub....a cast iron, or other non-plastic type tub may have removable grab bars...look for access area, or you may just have to cut out a piece of the wall to look----or if you do find a small access panel, and can get a telescoping mirror to look back at the back of the grab bar underneath the tub, you will find your answer----or you could contact the original manufacturer of the tub, and they can tell you if the grab bars are removable....another solution is to coat/paint/sandblast the metal bars however you'd like them to be

My Danze NSF 61 9 makes a loud howling noise ant almost any level of water flow. I have tried to adjust the water preasure but it does not help. Any ideas?


Brand new ours did not have this problem. It does now and I think the reason is the seam in the chrome over the handle is cracked and pressure leaks out causing the noise. It's now bad enough that it leaks also. Glue fixed both problems temporarly but its doing it again so I'm looking for a replacement. That's how I came across this post.

Looking for parts breakdown picture for DANZE NSF 61 Kitchen Faucet Any Links?


NSF 61(-9) is a standard rather than the model number (it's often very difficult to identify the model number. If you are able to find the model number, the link attached has all the technical specs for Danze products (even discontinued ones). http://www.danze.com/tech_specs.asp

Otherwise, I suggest browsing their faucet section until you find yours.

Good luck.

Want to increase water flow rate through Danze shower assembly


There is a flow regulator in the shower head. You have to remove the shower head and inside just down below the pipe threads, you will see the water saver. It can either be a white disk that can be screwed out or a black piece of plastic that just sits down in ther or a very small rubber washer. If it's the small rubber washer, you will need something pointy to remove it. I use a dental pic for them.
