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

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.

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.
They have support contact info on their website that you may want to try:
Good Luck,

Lost hot water pressure

Why do you suspect sediment from the hot water heater? There are no screens to clean before the faucets, so if you are getting sediment it should show up in the shower head screen. How is the water pressure at the shower while you have the head off?

There should be a sediment valve on the hot water heater (down low) that you are supposed to open once-twice a year to flush out the sediment at the bottom, however I suspect that you probably have a build-up of hard water deposits somewhere along the line. There is also an anode rod inside the water heater that wears out over time and must be replaced. The harder your water, the faster it corrodes. Once it is gone, the corrosion moves on the the heater itself - usually at the junction of two different metals.

The anode is accessible on the top of the heater, but the heater must be turned off and the water supply shut before checking the rod - best to have a plumber do it if you haven't done it before. If the corrosion is too bad, you will need to replace the water heater itself.

Hot water dosen't come out.

hot water supply is probably turned off. Is it a rental or did you buy the place? Does it have a crawl space or a basement? Where is your water heater? Start at the water heater and trace the line to the shower. There may be a valve in between that has been shut off. Good luck.

How do you fix a dripping shower faucet? It is not leaking from the hot or cold handles, but the spout itself.

if it is an old fashioned valve then there are cone washers in the valves that control on and off
they are fairly easy and cheap to replace

Danze sonora roman tub personal shower stopped spraying, no kink in hose, no plug in sprayer

I had the same problem and just now fixed it.  Remove the faucet head - the tub filler - and pull out the diverter tube insert.  It's the valve at the bottom that's sticking - probably because of calcium or mineral deposits.  I washed mine with white vinegar and pushed a wooden spoon handle down the tub to unstick the valve, scrubbed it with vinegar and a toothbrush and re-installed.  Works perfectly now.

My danze D455612 is leaking and i think it might be an o ring problem. How do i pull it apart. I have taken off the top part but i am up to go any further

I have never taken apart that model before but they are all relatively similar.

The first step is to close the water supply.
Remove the handle.
Either a set screw or nut around the valve stem (packing nut) will be holding the cartride in place.

Once the valve stem/cartridge has been removed then all of the o-rings are evident....replace all of them and the large flat washer at the end of the stem (if there is one0.
