Toilet fill valve squeels when closing

You can use the shutoff to adjust for more or less pressure when it fills which may stop the squeal that is coming form the stem. I have a cheaper toilet and replaced that stem because mine made several noises. The replacement is not difficult; just drain the tank by flushing after you turn the water off and sop with a bath towel and there are 2 connectors on the underside where the stem connects. I had trouble because I didn't know there were 2. Good luck

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!

  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    Leaky single lever bath tub faucet

    Faucet is leaking due to seats bad.

    1- Turn water off first and remove handle and remove collar that holds stem and remove it..

    2- in valve there are seats that looks like caps they may be in valve body or the end of stem itself.

    3- Remove them and the springs and replace them this will take care of the leaking problem.

    Kitchen taps drip and leak.I do not want to replace with new but would like to sort these problems.

    dependent on the type of faucet, you need to replace (a) the washers, (b.) the spring and seals or (c.) the gasket. They all serve the same purpose. 1. turn off the water supply to the faucet. 2. double handle? (a)remove the center cap (b) then remove the screw holding the handle down (c)next unscrew the valve stem retaining nut (normally it is the one right above the faucet body). (d) pull the valve stem out, if there is a small rubber piece held down by screw remove the screw, replace the washer. if there is a rubber gasket wrapped around the stem, remove and replace it, if nothing is on the stem look into the faucet body you should see 1 or 2 small rubber pieces these are the seals the springs are right below the seals. Remove and replace springs and seals. 3. single handle? remove the handle retaining screw, normally covered by hot/cold indicator symbol, unscrew valve stem retaining nut, pull the valve stem and replace either the gasket or springs and seals.

    No water pressure in kitchen sink. Not the aerator.

    First of all we like to check the easy/cheap things first.

    1. Are the shut-off valves closed lightly?

    If they are closed, open them.....easiest fix of them all.

    2. If the valves are open then possibly a washer is shifted.

    Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink. Remove the handles by removing the set screw under the handles. There should then be a packing nut which holds all of the "guts" of the faucet in. Remove this nut and pull out the long stem. On the bottom of this stem is a flat washer that may have been damaged or is just slightly shifted. EIther way, I would replace it if the faucet is more then a few years old as it is cheap and you already have access to it. WHen replacing the valve stem, be sure to use a plumbers grease on all rings and seals. The rest of the replacement is the same are the removal.

    Hope this helps.

    One handle kitchen faucet leaks

    There are "o" rings in the area where it is leaking. You can get them at almost every hardware chain. Clean everything well with scotchbrite ant put silicon grease on before you put it back together.

    Water leak outside valve

    You have a leak where the back plate goes up to the wall OR there is a gasket missing from the trim installation. If this is a tile shower i would suspect the first and use clear tub/tile chaulking to seal around the edge of the plate paying close attention to the grout lines.

    Replaced stems and still leaking...

    Hello Matg55,

    If the seat came out with the stem, you will need to reinstall it.
    The valve's disc needs a seat to seal properly.
    Is the seat threaded on the side opposite the bevel?
    Do you have a seat removal/Installation tool?

    Kind Regards,
