The little wrench tightens the tension ring that fits on the inside of the retaining nut right under the handle. You fit the little "arms" in the notches.

SOURCE: Moen one handle kitchen faucet very low water stream

if the pressure is good with the head off then you can probably get a new head for it u shouldn't have to change the cartrige. it sounds like the head is clogged so plastic pieces in the head to help save water "water savers" it is hard to clean them i would try changing the head u should be able to find on for a moen, u buy for looks u buy it for life. take the old head with u when u go to buy a new one so they can match it up to the right one.if you can't find it and a lowes or home deptm try a plumbing supply house

Faucet leak from under the handle


IF YOU REPLACED ALL NEW PARTS THEN I WOULD GUESS THAT IT IS NOT PUT BACK TOGETHER RIGHT SOME THING MAY BE JUST A BIT OUT OF PLACE INSIDE CAUSING IT NOT TO SEAL. TAKE APART AND PUT TOGETHER AGAIN MAKING CERTAIN THAT EVERY THING IS LINED UP RIGHT. IF STILL LEAKS I'D GET A NEW ONE.

Delta 400-DST Single Handle Kitchen Faucet Spigot Drips


I've installed quite a few of these from the big box stores that leak. There are 2 rubber pieces inside the valve body that act as seats. The seats are what turn the water on and off as you move the handle. These rubbers need to be replaced. You can buy a delta repair kit, which will contain these parts. Where the faucet is new, it might be easier to bring it back

MY DELTA SCALD GUARD FAUCET WILL NOT TURN OFF HOW DO I REPAIR


When a Delta Scald Guard will not turn off, more than likely it is because the seats have worn out. Turn off the water supply and open any faucets lower stream of the shower unit. Using an allen key, locate the set c=screw in the handle and back it out. Next,Remove the Phillips screw holding the handle in place.Next turn the retaining ring counter clockwise and pull the catridge out of the faucet.Some catridges have two parts front and back. Behind the back part id two small rubber washers called seats and two springs. Install two new seats and springs and everything else in reverse order.

Not hot water should not exceed 120 degrees. If it does it will continue to melt the seats.

I have an older single handle Delta shower valve, and I am only able to get good water pressure on cold water (which is opposite of the normal right hand). Can you suggest a solution?


A rebuild kit for a shower is pretty cheap for delta. the actual ball behind the handle maybe wore and not allowing it to seat properly and restricing water flow hot side.

Also if you take it appart the 2 washers and springs you might as well replace them also.

Replace washers and springs and the ball with shaft that handle fits to.

Shut off water before taking appart.

Leaking shower faucet


I do believe that Delta guarantees their faucets for life. Go online to get the 800 number and call them, have the model number ready. They actually sent my girlfriend a replacement for her $300 kitchen faucet and also the guts to 2 bathroom faucets. They come with diagrams also. Of course I had to install them, but they stand behind their stuff.

I have a Delta shower faucet model number 1324 and my shower head is leaking How do I get the faucet part apart I have a diagram, but actually looking at the insides it all looks like one piece I don't...


Hi Shannon:

The problem is most likely the seats and springs. You should purchase Delta Part # RP4993. I found some for mine at Lowe's for around $4.00. O-rings are available there too for about $2.00, and you probably should go ahead and replace them as well, especially if they feel dry and brittle.

You have to remove the handle, then unscrew the brass ring (or bonnet) with a pipe wrench, then just pull the cartridge straight out. Separate the lower cartridge from the upper by twisting a quarter turn to the left. Once separated, remove the black rubber seats and springs and install the new.

Replace the seal on the 470 DST single handle pull out faucet


Turn the water off at the faucet, remove the handle and the retaining nut that is apart of the trim. You will see where you can use a wrench to remove it. The ball assembly will come right out and you can replace the washers right below it. Put it back together and if needed, tighten the tension ring that is on the retaining nut (usually grey or white in color) so it won't leak water around the ball stem. Good luck.

Single handle Delta Kitchen Faucet


The red/blue cover just hides the screw that allows you to remove the handle.

Turn off the water :-)

Remove the handle, you will see that part of the faucet is a large half moon nut. sometimes you can loosen these with your hands, but most times you will need a tool. To avoid damaging the finish with the tool, use smooth jaw tools or protect the nut with a thin piece of rubber/cardboard etc between the jaws of the tool and the nut.

You can then remove the ball/stem, the washers and springs.
Replace the stem, washers and springs and reassemble just as you took it apart.
Be carefull that the little "nipple" lines up with the notches properly.

Take care that you know exactly how it came apart and which direction each prt was facing.
