Danze valve on shower is binding.

The danze valve on my shower is starting to bind and becoming harder to shut off and on. I had this happen once before and replaced the valve about 6 months ago. What can I do to stop the valve from binding more and more.

I would take the new one off. Clean the inside and see if anything is on the disk and seat which would knock it out of alignment. If you have well water it could be calcium buildup. As for prevention - look to see what is causing the valve to become misaligned

New danze cartridge no water

Possible issue with pressure balancing cartidge, When you remove parts, turn off water, remove parts, slowly turn on water and see if brass valves lets water out. If yes pressure balancing cartridge or cartridge itself is defevtive.

I recentlly had a Danze model # D11200BT installed in my tub shower. The problem is every time you turn the water off there is a banging sound that comes out of the valve it self. The sa me thing happens...

You have what is called water hammer effect going on the water pressure is to high this can cause problems with all you plumbing fixtures. You need to have a water hammer arestor install or put a main line pressure reducing valve in.

Shower valve has a thumping sound when other faucets or toilets are turned on and off.when you turn shut offs to danze shower valve off sound goes away.could this possibly be the plunger in the valve?

I have the same issue with a Danze Sonora shower Valve. I called Daze and they sent me a new cartridge. After installing it I have the same problem. I also put a surge arrester on my toilet which had little effect. If you find the cure please post it.

What makes the faucet bind?

I'm just installing the exact same faucet and I found that the side to side motion was binding if I tightened the tap too much from the bottom with the nut & "c" shaped clamp with the 2 set screws. Not sure what it could be if yours was fine & started having trouble.

Danze control valves producing loud water hammer

It sounds like your flow diverter isn't closing properly. Try removing the flow restrictors from the shower nozzle and see if that helps.
