Question about Delta Faucet Delta 14478 Leland Pressure Balance SingleHandle Tub and Shower Faucet wit

1 Answer

I have a Delta wannabe faucet. Ball valve, single clear plastic knob on my bathroom sink. The clear plastic prismed handle will not come loose from the ball cartridge stem. Ideas?

There is no allen screw on the ball, and now I have the entire ball cartridge, cover and gaskets, crutcheon, and handle in my hand.. I need to get the ball handle off the ball cartridge stem, or I can not line up the cartridge to the seats correctly.. How does on get this plastic prism ball handle off the cartridge stem?

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

SOURCE: Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle

Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

SOURCE: im tryin to remove the ball stem #212 off my faucet?

Remove handle and on top it has a cap that has to be removed to access the ball it will require maybe a strap wrench or chanel locks with something on teeth to keep it from damaging top cap.

Remove cap and it will give you access to ball turn .

HOW DO I INSTALL A SEAL KIT


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

    How to disassemble the delta single handle bathroom faucet


    Before taking it apart, you need to turn off the cold and hot water valves under the sink. Once you have done that, open the faucet and let the remaining water run out into the sink. Since I am not sure what the age of your faucet is. I will be using instructions for a common Delta faucet.

    1. There is a hole towards the bottom of the handle in the front. It may have a plastic button there. If so, pry the button off with a very small flat head screwdriver. Try not to damage it.

    2. If your going to replace the seals, it is best to by the rebuild kit that comes with a special tool. It includes the allen wrench and spanner wrench in one. And all necessary parts to rebuild it.

    3. Once you get the handle off, you will see a dome shaped part with two notches in it. It may have ridges on the side of it. That is the special fitting that holds all the parts down.

    4. Remove the dome shaped part with the tool provided with the parts kit.

    5. Replace all parts that match yours.

    6. Install everything in reverse order and you should be good to go.

    My Delta type kitchen sink handle is loose and keeps shutting water off. I have to turn it up a lot to keep it going. I could remove Red / Blue plug and do not know what to do beyond to tighten it?


    Inside the handle of a Delta kitchen sink faucet is a small setscrew. You need an 1/8th inch allean wrench or Delta faucet tool to lossen the setscrew. Rotat the screw about 3 full turns counterclockwise, this should be emough to remove the hnalde. Under the Delta faucet handle is a white plastic ring with four notches. If you have a Delta faucet tool, you place it in two of the notches and slowly turn the ring clockwise to tighten the Delta ball assemby. This will keep the handle from moving by itself. If you do not have Delta faucet tool, use a pair of needle nose pliers in stead.

    When diagnosing faucets, I always start at the discharge end. Remove the aerator and try to run the water. If you get water flow, then the aerator is clogged with some junk. If not, take apart the faucet ball again and make sure the rubber seats are seated correctly. Reassemble the handle and try to turn on the water. If that does not restore flow, remove the handle and carefully turn on the shut off valves below the sink to check for flow. Get the idea?

    We have a very old Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet. The screw in the handle is now stripped since it was so rusted. How can we get the plastic knob off???


    you can try drilling a small pilot hole and then use an "easy out" (get'em at any hardware store). or take some large pliers and break the plastic handle and remove the whole cartridge. Go get a new cartridge and handle. Make sure main water valve is shut-off prior do doing so though.

    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.
