SOURCE: the cable system on the pop up assembly is not

One of two things can be wrong.The first is the drain plug itself has become disengaged with the plunger inside the drain line. You can check this by pulling up on the drain stopper itself, if it comes all the way out then all you need to do is to reinsert it and give it a little twist to get it reseated on the plunger hook. The other may be the drain handle on the top of the faucet may be disconnected from the rod. Open up the doors underneath the sink and inspect it. The rod should go down and the plunger handle should connect to the rod via a bent metal clip. Ensure it is in the correct position to activate the handle in the drain pipe when the top is pulled up.

SOURCE: my k-7272 drain insatlled on 3.9.12 worked, now we cannot get the plunger to engage so we can fill the tub?

The plunger assembly probably detached. Open the overflow, extract the assembly and reattach it securely for replacement.

Sounds like to me you have a water restriction somewhere. Double check and make sure that the main water valve coming into your home is fully open. Make sure the water shut off valve(s) going to the dishwasher both have adequate water flow and that means testing them before being connected to dish washer. If that checks out okay, possibly the plunger that opens and closes in the electric water solenoid is sticking and not opening up al the way since the unit has been in storage for all that time. Sometimes tapping on it when it is in operation can free up that sticking plunger and you may get full water flow restored again. If not, solenoid may have to be replaced. Hope this helps out.

Gurgling in the bath tub when toilet is flushed


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
lear a clogged (not stopped) sink or bathtub with a plunger:
  1. If you have a dishwasher, pinch off the rubber dishwasher drain hose that leads to the garbage disposer using a clamp or locking pliers. If clearing a bathtub, remove the drain stopper and cover the overflow opening with a wet rag.
  2. Remove the sink basket or tub stopper and clean any debris from the drain opening.
  3. Fill the sink or tub with sufficient water to cover the plunger cup, usually about 2 inches. If you are working on a double sink, seal the other sink with a stopper so the plunger can create a vacuum.
  4. Set the plunger on the drain opening and repeatedly pump it up and down, then pull away sharply to dislodge debris. Repeat if necessary.
  5. Turn on warm or hot water to flush loosened debris from the drain.
  6. If the clog remains, use an auger (see below) or an expansion nozzle (see below) to clear the drain.
Clear a clog using an auger:
  1. Remove the stopper or strainer. If unable to do so, disassemble the drain trap (see below) and feed the auger directly through the pipe. Make sure you have a pail and rags nearby in case of a water spill.
  2. Release the setscrew on the auger and begin feeding the cable into the open drain.
  3. Once the auger tip hits the clog, set the screw and crank the auger clockwise to break up the clog.
  4. Continue breaking up the clog and moving it down the drain line with the auger. Once there is no more resistance to forward motion of the auger, stop and carefully remove the auger.
  5. If the clog can't be moved, continue twisting the auger to possibly snag and retract the clog.
  6. Once the clog is cleared, flush the drain with boiling water.

Water did not drain


see the causes and fix it. God bless you
If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

I can not close my bath tub drain. the plunger is all internal and wont come out either. I tried a coat hanger to push it down. no go.


on most tubs the stopper is made to come out! does the stopper have 2 screws at the stopper lever. if it does just remove these screws and pull the stopper out slowly. when putting in a new one. have the same length as the old one, then slide it back in the drain fairly slow until it goes all the way in. replace screws and try it! good-day!

I am replacing a bathtub lift and turn tub drain w/ the Danze lift and turn tub drain conversion kit- how do i remove it from the part that stays in the tub? I just want to put the pull into the existing...


Hi,
Unless you can get to the bottom of the tub either through the floor below or the wall in front of the tub.... you do not want to do that...
To change it you may need to change some of the piping to the tub drain....
It is possible that you can take a needle nose pliers and turn the tub piece out by sticking the pliers through the webing in the tub drain and turn the CCW also.....but if the bottom piece is not the same thread.. or the piece moves... you may not be able to get the new piece started and then your in BIG trouble...

The drain is old and needs to be replaced. I can't figure out how to get the old one out.


Here is a video that gives you the basic idea. these screw out. in the video the guy removes the old and then installs the new. 2 things about that. 1 when you remove the old then clean the tub up. 2 before you put in the new, put plumbers putty around the flange of the new. it will squeeze out the excess as you tighten it.

How do you secure the overflow plate


I think you're referring to the drain stopper in your sink? They have to positions, one drop in so you can remove it easily to remove debris, or the other position it is engaged in the lever assembly that raises and lowers it. Loosen the nut on the drain line where the lever enters the drain (under the sink) retract the lever slightly, lower the plunger with the hole aligned to the lever. Re-insert the lever and test that it raises and lowers the plunger. Then try to lift the plunger. If you have engaged the lever into the plunger then it will not come out. Re-tighten the nut.

Bathtub will not drain...


remove the two screws on the overflow,thats where the lever is, then pull out the plunger. clean it off and turn the water on and let it run a minute so it can flush out any grime or hair that may be down there. If you look at the linkage on the plunger it will have a threaded piece. unscrew that a couple of turns to lengthen the linkage. dont lengthen it to much,only 2 or 3 turns should do. reinstall plunger and fill tub, if it is still giving you problems try adjusting it again. If all else fails then goto a plumbing store and buy a new drain, you can buy just the plunger,linkage, and handle.
