When you pull on the handle a flap or little valve blocks the flow of water to the spout, making it run to the shower head
Long story short, since I've spent the entire day at different hardware stores, and websites looking for the answer, and figured it out... before taking the advice of so many and replacing the entire spout..
The little black rubber washer is the value. When water pressure pushes against the hole, it actually pushes this black valve out just enough to stop the water from flowing, and the water flows to the shower head. If water is pouring out, try cleaning this black valve with toothpaste, as someone on another website recommended, and reinsert the valve. But don't push it all the way in. Water need to get behind this valve in order to function properly.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Replace diverter in 2 handle aqua source kitchen faucet

For a dual-handle Aquasource kitchen faucet with spray hose, the following instructions will afford replacement of the diverter. These instructions specifically refer to the faucet illustrated at, and the diverter identified as part RP70007 (item 14). Note the position of notches at the top of the diverter and around the rim of the base of the diverter, either of which can be used to leverage a tool to rotate the diverter out of position. Caution: The diverters on older faucets may be exceptionally brittle and thus very difficult to remove.

1. Using a pipe wrench or similar large-mouth wrench, unscrew the base of the faucet. Wrap the base with a cloth or other protective material to prevent scratching during the process of unscrewing. The base unscrews in a counter-clockwise direction.
2. With the base removed, remove the faucet. Note that a small amount of water may drain from the faucet when removed.
3. Removal of the base reveals the top of the diverter, which is a white, plastic cylinder approximately two inches long with copper stopper in the bottom. Insert a wide, flat-blade screwdriver across the notches in the top of the diverter - but be *extremely* careful. A faucet that has been installed for some length of time may have an exceptionally brittle diverter. If the upper shaft of the diverter breaks, a pair of needle-nose pliers may be used in the notches around the *base* of the diverter. Carefully rotate the diverter counter-clockwise to remove it.
4. Insert the new diverter and screw it into place in a clockwise direction. Apply a wide, flat blade across the notches in the top of the diverter to apply slight additional pressure to tighten the diverter just beyond hand-tightness.
5. Re-insert the faucet.
6. Screw the base back into position, tightening as necessary.
7. Test the operation of the diverter by operating the cold and/or hot water faucets, then the spray handle.

Fisher and Paykel diverter won't work

The plunger should be out when wax solenoid is hot.
When non energized outputs to drain pipe.
Check to see if it's the right way around.

I've taken the spout off and can see the diverter but I can't get it out of there. How do you get it out?

I have a K-R10430. I was having issues with the hand spray - poor water pressure. Kholer sent out a new diverter. After shutting off watner, when you remove the small screw in the back of the Spout, pull the spout off. Put a paper towel into the body to soak up excess water inside body. Then you need a small screw driver or small flat item to fit inside one side of the retaining ring near the opening, there is a space where you can fit something behind and carefully move the retaining ring out. Pull out with needle nose pliers then pull the diverter out with needle nose pliers. Insert new diverter with teeth facing up and push down. Insert retaining ring and make sure it slips into same **** in wall of body.

How do i use the call forward option?

Call forward or call divert, the same features just different names in some models of phones. Only the name of the service says that it is diverting calls. There is 4 situations for activation and can be activated via the mobile device or directly by entering codes on the display phone. The function codes and their ability to use depends on the network operator.
** 21 * number that diverts calls with code of network operator # OK, yes or call it will divert all incoming calls unconditionally
##21# ok, yes or call it will deactivate this divert.
*#21# ok, yes or call it will check status.
** 61 * number that diverts calls with code of network operator # OK, yes or call it will divert incoming calls when you do not want or can not answer the call
##61# ok, yes or call it will deactivate this divert.
*#61# ok, yes or call it will check status.
** 67 * number that diverts calls with code of network operator # OK, yes or call it will divert incoming calls when your line is busy ##67# ok, yes or call it will deactivate this divert.
*#67# ok, yes or call it will check status.
** 62 * number that diverts calls with code of network operator # OK, yes or call it will divert incoming calls when you are unavailable ##62# ok, yes or call it will deactivate this divert.
*#62# ok, yes or call it will check status.
##002# ok, yes or call it will deactivate all divert.
If the codes not working you have that option in your phone, it is in call settings. You choose option and then insert a number for diverting calls.
This service is not free, and you must contact your network operator for prices.

Hi it sounds like your problem is that the call diverts are set to divert all calls what you need to do is goto settings then goto call settings then look for call divert settings what you need to do is cancel all diverts and then go through them one by one and just
activate divert if off (activating this one goes to ans phn if phn off
activate divert if busy ( goes to ans phn if your on phone call)
activate divert if out of reach (goes to ans phn if no signal)
After doing these settings then your phone should ring when someone calls you.
Before you activate any divert setting select cancel all diverts then get someone to ring you and make sure phone rings the screen will now display whos callind and the phone should also ring.
Let me know if you need further assistance ok let me know how you get on

This is an operator supported feature. You need to punch in this code.


destination is the number the calls get diverted to

nn = time in seconds (5/10/15/20/25/30)

This will work if you operator have not disabled this code.
