A metal ball controls the temperature and flow of water from the spout in the vast majority of Delta single-lever faucets. That ball rests on three rubber seals, each seal suspending the ball with a single spring. Over time, wear on the seals, the springs and even the ball itself typically results in leaks. Thankfully, repairing the faucet is relatively simple, and Delta even makes repair kits with the replacement parts needed for each model.

Turn off the valve that controls the main water supply. The valve is located next to the water meter, inside or outside the house, and must be twisted in a clockwise direction.

Remove the plastic cap from the center of the faucet's handle by prying the cap free with the blade of a dull knife or a flat-head screwdriver, then remove the screw in the center of the faucet handle with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the handle off the faucet assembly to remove it

  • Remove the single bonnet nut that surrounds the faucet valve with an adjustable wrench. Grip the bonnet nut at the base, which is ribbed to give the wrench a surface to grasp, and turn in a counterclockwise direction to remove it.

  • Remove the circular, white plastic cam that surrounds the top of the faucet, pulling it off and revealing a rubber seal, which you also remove. Next, pull the metal ball out of the faucet assembly and pry out the ball's supporting rubber seals and their springs with a screwdriver (the springs slide onto the bottom of each seal, so they will come out along with the seals).

  • Slide one replacement spring onto each of the three replacement seals that come with the Delta repair kit for your faucet model, then insert each seal into the assembly. Insert the replacement ball from the repair kit, then cap it by putting the replacement rubber seal over the ball, followed by the plastic cam

  • Place the bonnet nut over the faucet valve, then tighten the nut with an adjustable wrench. Position the handle onto the end of the faucet, then insert a screw into the center of the handle, tighten it with a Phillips-head screwdriver and, finally, press the decorative plastic cap over the screw.

  • Turn on the valve that controls the main water supply by twisting the valve in a counterclockwise direction to complete the repair

    I have a one handle shower/tub faucet, and when you run straight hot water (to preheat for example) the water shuts itself off. Lever is still in the lifted/on position however. Cold is fine, even warm...

    If this is a newer valve what is probably happening is the valve is a scald guard valve and is shuting itself off when it senses no pressure on the cold side. I don't have a lot of experience with am. std. valves but I'm sure you can get instruction on line to set heat setting on valve higher. Thank you.

    Install trim and adjust the thermostat on a Grohe shower faucet

    Before you install the temperature control knob, adjust the valve body (47111) with a wrench to set the temperature to "100 degree or close to it". Now, place the limit ring to tdc (top dead center) and control knob with the red 100-degree align to it. Your problem may have been the valve's temperature setting is out range when you installing the temperature control knob.

    How do I remove the single lever? I removed the screw, but the lever is still attached. I think we have a diverter problem because the sprayer is working, but not the faucet. Does the actual lever...

    What often happens with this type of faucet is the shaft becomes corroded inside the lever. If you place a cloth around the base of the lever and pry upward with two equal size large screwdrivers the lever "should" pop off. I've had to replace several of these type unit for this very reason. Thanks, Dana

    If this is a single lever faucet, they have a plastic "geared "peice that is adjustable so the water can be very hot at a sink but will allow the
    shower / tub to be set at a lower mixing temperature to prevent scalading someone. to get to it remove the center cap and remove the screw from the center and remove the outer knob that sets the hot cold mix, the "gear" peice is there, set it left or right by one tooth at a time and check it till you get the disired temperature, you can remove it totaly but then it will get as hot as the water heater puts out.

    Delta Kitchen Single Faucet 470 suddenly would not give water

    Debris in the valve is a fairly common cause for stopping water flow in single lever valves. You can first check the aereator and remove any debris that may be there at the faucet itself. Then you can try to remove the ball at the control lever. You have to be careful and make sure that you do not drop any parts. Especially if this is a recent installation, you may find a large piece of something there.
