Tub handle stem wont come out- 9c-23H/C 3 handle Danco for american standard

Preview Area Danco Faucet Stem Problem with Danco Faucet Stem older 3 handle tub system -stem size 9C-23H/C Danco makes for American Standard (Colony I was told) 40 year old style -when we tried to remove the barely leaking stem (there is no socket that fits we were told) - The larger outside part of stem barrel came out leaving the thin longer inside still in. If it was originally soldered together there was not much there. It turns and turns and no amount of pulling, jiggling turning will bring it out.have no idea if this is a common problem. What do we do? Do we have ANY options except cutting into the wall? And if we do that can we get it free? If so how to proceed? Or does the whole system behind the wall have to be replaced? the maintenance man at the condo and online info made it out to be a simple issue and the leak was slight but wanted to completely replace including the seat while renovating since there was a leak then update the handles. Help please!

I had a similar problem when looking to replace my shower valves with 9C-23H/C units. The old ones were very hard to get out, I imagine that they were the original ones that came with the house.
Do NOT cut into the wall, that will not get you anywhere. There is a nut that fits around the plumbing end of the stem; this is likely what is stuck. I had to put my foot on the wall and pull hard on the vise grips to get the stem out. You may want to use a flashlight and see if there is any scale build up which is getting in the way. Try to scrape that away if possible. Pull straight out on the stem very firmly, but don\'t yank on it, use constant pressure and avoid up and down movement as the nut has a tight clearance to make it out.
Going behind the wall should be an absolute last resort.

SOURCE: When dishwasher is running, water

Is there an air gap next to the faucet that is leaking. If so, it is probably clogged. Pull the cap off of it and clean it out. This is what it may look like before you take the cap off.

9C-23H/C American Standard: Does the seat for the stem take an o-ring? I replaced the seats but the drip got worse.


There are three things to replacing a washer seat, after you turn the water off, open the valve before you replace it, most people take the stem nut out first, then putting it back over compresses it unless the valve is open.
Check the seat, this is not the rubber washer at the end of the stem. The seat is in the fixture, most can be removed with a special wrench.
Last but not least is the over tightening the valve to stop the water. Water wont stop instantly and it important to remember that. Turn the water of lightly when you are done, wait a moment to see what happens when the residual water drains. Then tighten more if necessary.

HOW DO YOU ASSEMBLE AND INSTALL A DANCO 9S-4H/C


Turn off the water supplying the faucet. Now open the faucet. Remove handle by taking off index button and removing screw. You may need to purchase a handle puller, 10-15 dollars, and a stem wrench set. After removing handle, place appropiate sized wrench on stem and turn counter clockwise. Before installing stem, make sure it is in the open position. You may need to use the handle to turn the new stem. Screw in clockwise.

When I turn on the tub faucet, water comes out of the spout and shower head. It's a t215.710 model


Does it have a diverter on the spout? If so, replace the spout with the same type. If it is a new installation, did you make up the valve or was it complete and designed for tub & shower? If it's an old valve and it has a separate diverter stem, there is a spacer behind the valve between the valve housing. Replace it.

Cold water handle on my American Standard cold water control just spins around with out turning on the water


There is an adapter from the faucet stem to the handle. A small gray plastic faucet part that frequently causes problems for many owners. You will need to call American Standard and ask for a new handle stem connector. The faucet came with a limited lifetime warranty and the part should be free. While you are getting one, you might as well get another for the other handle. American Standard's phone number is 1-800-442-1902.

Looking for cartridge for Tuscany Brass Tub Faucet Single Handle appears to be Ceramic Disk Type


While there are several cartridges that look similiar to what you have posted, Danco it self is an aftermarket parts replacement business. From my point of observation, your posted pic is of a Delta stem which visually has some distinctive attributes. Most every thing Danco makes is a copy or OEM replacement part packaged under their name.

Thae stem you got that said hot/cold were designed to fit old style cross handle faucets. So both hot and cold turned the same way. If the cold side you are replacing turns the opposite direction then you will need to get a cold stem. Danco does make them. Ask the retailer where you purchased the H/C stem. I hope this helps..
