SOURCE: replace delta single handle shower cylinder

Yes, I believe this unit uses a cartridge right? They do fit a little tight due to the small washers on the back side of the cartridge. If this is the one I'm thinking of, there are two leg like appendenges that come off the back and fit into small holes at the back of the manifold or what some call mixing valve housing.

Tip

Adjusting the temperature setting on a Delta single handle faucet 13/14 series.


Delta single handle Tub & Shower faucet temperature control adjustment.

Step 1 - Remove handle to gain access to rotational limit stop. Once handle is off there ia a plastic limit stop disc. Remember where it is to start with. Metal handles require a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. Plastic handles require removal of cap to access screw to remove with phillip's head screw driver.

Step-2- To adjust the temperature of the water coming out of the valve, pull the disc back to a position where it is possible to remove the Rotational Limit Stop and readjust the teeth to desired position to acheive temperature. Once moved reinsert it into place to test water

Step-3- Clock wise will decrease the temperature and counter clockwise will increase the outlet temperature to a hotter setting. Temperature setting per tooth (notch) could result in 4 to 16 degree's based on inlet water conditions.

Check water temperatures to make sure it is at a safe temperature to avoid scalding. Safe operating temperatures range around 120 degree's. Some may have to be adjusted based on season's.
Winter season's when it is cold outside you may have to turn temperature up due to water coming into house will be colder than it would be in the summer.

CANT FIND HOW TO REMOVE THE HANDLE TO ADJUST OR REMOVE THE SCALD GUARD


1-For a metal lever handle it will have a allen head screw at the base of the lever to remove with a 1/8" allen wrench. If you can not see screw it may have a cap covering it to remove.

2-To remove plastic acrylic caps remove plastic cap to acess screw to remove handle.

Once handle is off remember the location of the dial to adjust it counter clockwise to increase hot water flow. Slide indicator dial back on stem and reposition about a 1/4" turn counter clockwise and recheck for change in temperature.

If you need any more help refer to the link provided for a digram of faucet. Go to parts down load and view faucet parts view. I hope this will be helpful in solving your issue.

The handle stops mid way between hot and cold. The water gets barely lukewarm.


Have you tried adjusting the temp control setting behind the handle. Remove handle and mark the dial or remember where it located and slide it out of place so you can move it counter clock wise maybe a 1/4" turn and put handle on and turn faucet on and check for hotter water.
It is a anti scald valve and it's preset to a certain temperture for safety.

I believe I have a delta monitor shower faucet. I am wondering why the hot water pressure is less than the cold water pressure. Also, I am wondering what size hex head I need to remove the lever so I can...


It takes a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. To increase hot water flow remove plastic dial that sets temperature. It is right behind handle and slides off stem for easy adjustment.

Remove indicator and replace about 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clock wise to increase to hotter temperature.

THE SCALDGUARD ALLOWS VERY LITTLE HOT WATER HOW TO CHANGE TO BEABLE TO FILL TUB I HAVE A DELTA#T13220 I CAN'T THE HANDLE OF EITHER


Hi,
You probably need to adjust the faucet to give you hotter water.
The other problem can be low water pressure... if your cold water pressure is low or there is a restriction in the line, it willl also restrict the hot water flow.
Follow these instructions to pull the whole valve assembly out and check the water flow of the cold water with out anything in the valve body. This will tell you if the problem is in the piping of the valve.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!
