You can purchase a "pop up assembly" and just replace the pop up stopper, the ball swivel rod, and the clip, without having to disassemble the drain from the sink.

The whole repair can be done in 15 minutes by an experienced plumber. The parts typically cost $10 to $20.

You will only need to go to your local hardware store and ask for" Pop-Up Center Rod Assembly" even though you might only need the little metal bendy thing that holds center rod to the pop up rod.

At this point, opening the access cover is the last thing you do if it is below the water level in the pipes. Your system has a partial blockage in the pipes between the pump and external septic tanks or sewage dump site, that is the reason why when you use the plunger , half of the amount of waste water comes up to the sink and bathtub. You to open up your pipelines to remove blockage , probably tree roots in the pipes.

Tip

Broan Bathroom Fan Care and Cleaning


<p>One of the most common <b>bathroom fans</b> is the <b>Broan brand ventilation fan</b>. These fans come in many configurations and variations. Because of the environment that these fans are in and the placement of these fans they will get very dirty over a period of time and will need to be cleaned from time to time. <b>Cleaning bathroom fans </b>can be fairly easy if you have a few tips about how to do it.<br /> <p> <br> <p>To clean the fan the inside of the fan must be accessed first. To get to the inside of the fan the cover must be removed. Most of the covers simply will pull downward and away from the ceiling. There are a couple of springs, one on each side the snap the cover up and hold it in place. On some models there can be a screw that holds the cover. It will be visible right in the center of the cover. If no screw is visible then you can assume that it is a spring type cover. If there is a light in the cover you can remove the plug and the light will come right with the cover.<br> <p> <br> <p>After pulling the cover down simply squeeze the springs together slightly and the cover will come completely out and you can take it to your sink to wash it. Then take a vacuum or a damp rag and clean the inside of the fan compartment. If you look closely you will see that the fan assembly has a plug that can be pulled and the fan assembly can be removed by either removing a couple of screws or by placing a screw driver between the fan assembly and the side of the box and snapping out the fan assembly.<br> <p> <br> <p>Once you have the fan assembly out you can then use compressed air, like you use on your computer keyboard, or a damp cloth to clean the fan assembly. The compressed air works the best on the blower wheel and in some cases a small screw driver may be needed to remove caked on dust inside the fins of the fan.<br> <p> <br> <p>With you vacuum, you can now clean out the rest of the box and even into the vent hose a little bit. Be careful not to destroy the flapper, as that is what stops cold air from being pulled back into your home while the fan is off. Wipe down the box to complete the cleaning.<br> <p> <br> <p>The fan can now be reassembled by reversing everything and placing it all back as it was before you removed it. Be sure to remember to plug the fan motor back into the socket. The light may also need to be plugged in if you have a light in the cover.<br> <p> <br> <p>You will now have a nice clean fan again. <br> <p> <br> <p>If you want to <b>replace the fan</B> because it is broken worn out or noisy you can often <b>buy replacement bathroom fan parts</B> or even a new fan that will fit in the same box. Upgrades are available to fit existing boxes also. To find <b>bathroom fan upgrades</B> and replacements go to <a href="http://www.broan.com/">www.broan.com</A><br> <p> <br> <p>At <a href="http://www.broan.com/">www.broan.com</A> you can also <b>order <span> </SPAN>broan replacement parts</B>, <b>download broan manuals</B>, and get <b>installation tips for your broan fan</B>.

I have a glass bowl sink in my bathroom. The pop-up drain is stuck in the down position and will not release. How do I fix it??


You'll need to access back side of sink bowl and locate drain mechanism, most likely either the plunger rod has loosened up from clevis rod or clevis rod is positioned to far in towards drain line causing it to bind. Check diagram for assistance in locating parts.
Is the plunger rod tight or loose? You can also loosen clevis screw and see if the plunger rod will slide freely. If it does try moving the horizontal pivot rod up and down, while doing this you should she your drain plunger moving up and down. If it does not then most likely will need to replace plunger mechanism by removing the retaining nut on the back side of the drain line. This will allow you to disassemble the actual drain plunger but I would definitely start with the mechanism of the stopper and clevis where it attaches to horizontal rod.
Sounds like a simple binding. Always be sure there isn't anything stored under your sink which could be causing the problem. Sometimes the most obvious is the last thing we look at.
Good luck.

The pop up waste in bathroom sink, has suddenly stopped popping up. The mechanism still moves freely - but the plug wont come up to let out the water.


the plunger ( plug) has slipped out of the grove, or the bottom has split ,, heres a quick fix,, under the sink you will have a rod sticking out with a nut that holds in the shaft that is what moves the plunger up and down,, unscrew that nut and remove the shaft, there will be a tab that holds the rod to another piece of thin metal, just squeeze that and slide it off, once the nut has been removed, you can pull that out of the drain assembly, with a small flat head screwdriver,, pop up the plunger from inside the sink and inspect it,, if the lower tab on it looks good,, you will see how it slides in the hole, so that when the rod is inserted it will slip into that opening, in the plunger bottom, which makes the thing go up and down, once you've done that ( if the plunger was bad, just replace it, ) with the rod and nut back in place, you can adjust the tab so that the plunger goes up the desired length ,, here, this will make it more understanding http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kmOm55skb0 Please rate my reply and response

I am trying to use a plunger in a slow drain. bathroom lav. The pop-up valve stopper is in the way of my plunger. the Pop-up valve is a Price- Pfister. My past experience with other older pop-up valves has...


Some of the drain plugs have holes or slots in them so that the stopper can not be removed without taking the actulating lever out from under the sink. This rod is part of the linkage that is hooked to lift rod on top, Unscrew retaining nut to remove rod so you can take stopper out. Remember that any water that is in sink is going to run out of this hole once you remove rod. Good luck and thank you.

The cable system on the pop up assembly is not working. lifting up or pushing down on the stem does not engage the plunger(in the sink drain).


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.

Why water not draining?


sometimes its not the filter. look for the drain hose that connects to the drain pipe (normally under your sink inside your cupboards).
Disconnect the drain hose and look inside where it connects to, most of the tim it blocks up in this area.

Speed connect drain will not go down completely


Make sure that the compression nut is not too tight where it could bind up the plunger rod. I'm sure you have probably gotten up under to see if it is hitting anything. Also, make sure that the lift rod is adjusted correctly. I am leaning more towards the unit being bound up some how.
