SOURCE: Cold water only from single-arm shower faucet in master bathroom

Yes - This is an easy (though not widely known) diy fix! Remove the cover of the faucet handle (may pop off if crystal type or use a screwdriver to remove the screws) inside there is a scald guard safety mechanism - using a flathead screwdriver, turn the guard some the left. There should be a guide so that you do not turn the water up too hot. If there is not, you may need to consult a plumber or supplier in order to adjust the hot to a moderate temperature.

Hope this helps! ;)

SOURCE: How do you get the handles off the Finial

Grasp the base of the handle under the lever by hnad and turn it counterclockwise. If the whole valve turns, you will need to hold the valve from underneith the sink with a wrench while you unscrew the handle base on top. It is difficult to see, even with the Finial owners manual from Kohler how the two join.

SOURCE: The cold water handle assembly of my Kohler

Automotive Thread-Lock compound will secure the parts during normal day to day use-and still allow the faucet to be disassembled for servicing. You will only need a drop or two, don't over do it.

SOURCE: how do I tighten the faucet handle. The handle is

From what you have described it sounds like the stem in which the handle rests on is stripped and allowing to move from side to side.

Remove handle it has a set screw in the side of it and turn water off. Check the stem may be in need of replacing or the retaining nut that holds the stem down to counter top may be in need of tighting.

How do i repair bellera #r560vs kitchen faucet reduced/low cold water flow have installed newfaucet valve


Turn off the hot & cold water supply lines at the shut-off valves.

Yo need to use the correct replacement cartridge for the faucet you are fixing

The cartridge replacement procedure requires using food grade silicone lubricant around the base of the new cartridge and around the threads of the bonnet.

Then you must properly align the 2 bumps on the bottom of the cartridge with the inside body of the faucet.

Insert and tighten down the bonnet that holds the cartridge in place to where it is snug- do not over tighten the bonnet!

Then reinstall the trim piece and lever.

Slowly, fully open the hot and cold water shut-offs and check for leaks at the shut offs, sink handle, and spout.

If you are using the Watts brand floodsafe supply lines, turn the hot and cold water shut-offs, on slowly. Rapid flow and pressure may activate the floodsafe valve within the supply line, causing little to no water flow to the faucet.

The thread that helps tighten the faucet has come apart from the faucet. I cant see back there to rethread the piece into the faucet so I can tighten the nut.


turn valve water off. Quickest fix is buy new plastic sink faucet nut and sink nut removal/installation tool from Lowe's or Home Depot. Take off old and install new. Turn valve water on and done.

Fixed leaking faucet, now handles leak at the base & the water pressure is low


No, air can't get trapped in there. I don't think you did anything wrong. It sounds like the valve or internal parts are worn more than new washers take up for. Tightening down the valve just reduced travel for valve to open fully. Can't think of a fix; where's that joe da plumber?

I personally would not call this plumber back if that was his prognosis. Sounds like it might have a stripped thread you could possibly try some loctite on the portion of thread before tightening or just replace the unit especially if it has age on it's side. Good Luck..

The base of the faucet which fastens to the top of the granite is loose and moves around. Is there a nut under the faucet that tightens to keep it firm to the granite? How do I fix this?


yes there is, with a pair of slip joints you can tighten from underneath, it is above the supply line, the best thing to do is turn off the water, disconnect the supply line and tighten the nut, then reconnect the supply line and turn back on the water. Good Luck Tim

HELLO THE FAUCET DRIPS AT THE HANDLE AND THE HOT AND COLD SEEM REVERSED


On this valve the hot/cold in reverse is easy enough to fix, but the faucet dripping at the handle is another issue. To reverse the hot and cold, turn off the house water, relieve the pressure by opening a nearby faucet. Once the water stops, remove the handle and faucet cover so you can see the valve. then the four screws that are visible need to be removed. Mark one of the screw holes with a crayon or pencil and then remove by pulling straight out. Once out, inspect the main o-ring right behind where it sits against the valve, (if this is damaged, it might be why the handle area is leaking) then turn the whole assembly clockwise 180 degrees then insert straight back in and insert screws. Tighten screws until snug. Turn water back on before installing cover and handle to check for leaks. If no leaks are found, install cover and handle and check for proper position of hot and cold. If there are leaks, tighten screws in clockwise rotation tightening each screw a quarter turn, then moving to the next one until dripping stops. If dripping is from center of stem, where the handle attaches, you will need to contact Price Pfister to request a replacement. They are very good to work with. Good luck.

Moen Bath Tub Faucet


Hi varn4620,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You had to replace the faucet in the tub due to a broken plastic piece in valve stem. Bought a Moen ripped the wall out and put new faucet in. Went good untill we turned the water on and the shower rained on us. Tightened everything you could find to tighten .Every time the water is turned on the shower rains. Can this be fixed or is the faucet broken?

Is this new faudet a single handle? If so I"ve had this experience also. Most of the time it's because the guts were not lined up properly at the factory. You may have to play with it a bit.
Turn off the water and take the handle off and remove the sleave, remove and rotate the guts. Try 90' at a time. Turn water on to try it. Useually one of the other 3 positions will be right. The correct position is there, but it may take time to find it.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber
