Question about Delta Faucet Delta 470-BL-DST Signature Single Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet With Spray

3 Answers

My Delta single handle kitchen faucet with pull out sprayer arm is no longer swiveling from one side to the other and does not line up with the handle anymore. It started shortly after I tightened the threaded rod underneath the cabinet because the faucet was wobbly. I prob overtightened, but how do I fix it? I have it apart right now

    Finally found my manual, I know that it needs the O-Rings at the base replaced or lubricated. Thanks for the service

You will need someone to help you hold faucet body and assembly to sink, so that you can tighten up rod from under sink without it getting bound.

The faucet got "wobbly" in first place because the O-Rings between the body of the faucet got gunked up with minerals from your water. The spout got stiff, requiring you to apply more force, thus loosening the retaining nut underneath.

The answer is to take some grit cloth/very fine sandpaper and clean the inside of the spout body. Wipe clean. I would also suggest replacing the O-Rings on the faucet body, but at the very least wipe the O-rings and faucet body clean.
THEN: lubricate the inside of the spout body AND the O-Rings with silicone grease. It's translucent and readily available and the only thing I would ever use for a faucet repair. NOT plumber's grease, NOT WD-40.
Reassemble and enjoy.

N.B. If you have buggered up a part, Delta has a really good warranty for the original owner's of a faucet. Receipt not always required.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Our delta kitchen faucet with the sprayer and

Point your water line into a bucket and turn the water on at the wall. If you get a good flow, we'll go back to the faucet. No kinks in the supply lines, right? The reason I ask is this was reminiscent of a recent problem where my friend could get hot water to the faucet, and it would slowly go down to a trickle. The problem was that the supply hose had a bit of a kink in it, and got choked off when the line got hot.
OK, good flow into the bucket. Sometimes the supply lines can delaminate, and choke the water off as well. Since you have a sprayer faucet combo, make sure that the flex hose that dispenses the water, and has the weight on it to retract the nozzle back up doesn't have a kink either. Remove the spray nozzle, and try the faucet, holding onto the hose. It's possible that the spray selector could have a problem, so check the spray head and diffuser. With the water on, push the sprayer button, and see if the problem might be there. Remove the aerator on the end of the sprayer, and check the screens for pluggage. My guess is that the issue is in the spray head.
Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: How do I remove delta 470 kitchen faucet? It won't swivel

If the 470 is typical, there should be two large nylon nuts on the bottom of the faucet tubes that hold the faucet to the sink. First, turn the water off, then open the faucet to drain any pressure. Next, disconnect the feed lines (hot and cold) that connect to the faucet from under the sink (be prepared for some water back flow, so paper towels would be a good idea). After the feed lines are disconnected, you should be able to reach up (usually behind the back of the sink basin) and access the two large nylon nuts (one on the cold and one on the hot). These nuts typically have raised portions so that you can get a grip on them. If you are lucky, you will be able to turn them (lefty loosey, righty tighty) by hand. If not you may have to work for some time with various pliers or other tools getting them to turn. Once you have them off, the faucet will simply lift up from the sink. Installation of another faucet should simply be the reverse procedure.
Good luck.

The flex hose for the sprayer can be seen under the sink. It may be hung up on a pipe or other object. As long as there is nothing broken on the sprayer you should be able to ease it back into place by gently applying a "pulling" pressure on the sprayer hose under the sink.

If you have a Delta faucet your diverter may need to be replaced. The diveter is located under the spout (see diagram)

Delta kitchen faucet mixed spray...diverter problem???


No a pull out sprayer problem is different.

First try this. Pull out the sprayer and remove from hose by turning nut that connects sprayer to hose. If you can get someone to help you it would be nice since the hose can go down into the faucet and might be trouble to retrieve. Look in the connection on the sprayer where the hose connects and look at the screen. If the screen is plugged or dirty clean and reinsert. If you can't clean it replace it. If this isn't working go to the next suggestion below.

In the spray head of the faucet there is a build up of deposits from use and or water hardness. Here is the link to the Delta site.

Delta Faucets

If you find you faucet model order a new spray head. Once these go bad they usually need replacing.

Kitchen spray not working completely.


Make sure the sprayer is clean of debris. IF YOU HAVE HARD WATER, soak in CLR overnight. If sprayer is clear then its the diverter which is more indepth thru the stem.
