You need to replace the overflow cover with the lever on it.You can replace the entire piece or just the faceplate.There is a spring on most of these that holds the lever in place when thrown and that is the piece that is broken causing your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Is there a button on the tub filler? How about the spout on the tub, does it lift up? If there is not a tub spout then it should be shower only, if it has a tub spout it has to have a lifter of some sort, the foto I found showed the little button lifter. Hope this helps.

I have a Delta push down bathtub drain stop, but it is worn and does not stop the water. It does not unscrew as far as I can see how do I get it apart without removing the tube which I can not do?

There are two types of tub drain stoppers for the delta brand - lift & turn and toe tap.

Lift and Turn:
The lift & turn stopper for the bathtub unscrews counterclockwise while in the full up position.

Toe Tap:
The toe tap stopper does also but if the cap may unscrew from it before the entire stopper comes out. In that case, there is a nut that is now exposed and can be accessed to unscrew the assembly.

If either of these is "spinning" without unscrewing, the threads are stripped and you would need to exert upward pressure while unscrewing in hopes of uncoupling this from the bath waste. If that doesn't work you would have to unscrew the bath waste flange from the drain pipe.
This will require access under the tub. I hope this answer the question for you. Thank you for using FIXYA. Jeff

The lever that you are moving controls a water diverter in the pipe. It may be broken and need replacement. I'd ask your landlord to call a plumber. Good luck!

When i turn on bath water it runs also from the shower if i pull lever up for just shower than just shower runs

You have more water trying to come out of the spout than the diverter gate will allow so by default it find another path of least resistance which is up the shower pipe to the head. I would suggest just getting a new tub spout. Remove it by unscrewing like you would a jar lid or it may have an allan set screw underneath and towards the rear.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Bathtub will not drain...

remove the two screws on the overflow,thats where the lever is, then pull out the plunger. clean it off and turn the water on and let it run a minute so it can flush out any grime or hair that may be down there. If you look at the linkage on the plunger it will have a threaded piece. unscrew that a couple of turns to lengthen the linkage. dont lengthen it to much,only 2 or 3 turns should do. reinstall plunger and fill tub, if it is still giving you problems try adjusting it again. If all else fails then goto a plumbing store and buy a new drain, you can buy just the plunger,linkage, and handle.

Delta pull-up bathtub drain problem

Hi Bigoz,

Drop the drain plug down about half way and try turning it counter clockwise. If you get no resistance after a full turn you will probably need to cut or break it out. If the pin is missing I'm guessing this is what you'll have to do. This answer assumes you have a lift and turn style drain.

Please ratre this response and Good Luck, Phil
