Possible causes:
1. you have a air pocket t in the heated water system. You will need to bleed the system.

How to install Delta T17030 Innovations Collection Single Handle Tub/Shower Trim Chrome by my self


http://www.deltafaucet.com/media/Product_Tech_Docs/Maint_Installation/50001to80000/51975RevE_13943.pdf

New Install:

1. Shut off the water.
2. Remove Plastic rough-in spacer. It's black and it's only there for roughing in, and so the tilers don't come too close.
3. Unscrew silver retaining nut - should only be hand tight. Remove and discard grey cap that was being held is place by nut. Remove and discard plastic stopper inside faucet.
4. Take grey plastic disk off of cartridge and DO NOT THROW AWAY. Adjust gearing/splines to hottest temp by rotating plastic insert. Reinstall plastic disk.
5. Install cartridge with HOT lettering to LEFT. Secure with Silver Nut.
6. Slide large O-Ring over silver nut.
7. Install trim plate using long phillips(star) screws provided (2)
8. Slide Plastic spacer (looks like a snowflake) into chrome trim (cylinder) and slide cylinder over Silver Nut.
9. Install handle by tightening allen screw until it engages firmly with cartridge.

Changing Existing Trim:

As Above Except Old Trim Must Be Removed First. Cartridges Are Specific To Certain Trims. Even More So If Installation Is Over 3 Years Old. 3 Years Ago, Delta Went To The "Universal Rough-In" Which Made Things A Little Easier Because The Appropriate Cartidge Now Comes With The Appropriate Trim.

Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle


Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

I have a Delta Series 1400 faucet in the tub/shower. The handle turns left and right for Hot & cold, but I do not know how to adjust total volumne. Is the round know supposed to pull out? It does not...


hi roger,

Sorry Delta 1300 and 1400 series valves do not have a volume control. Kinda odd but that is how they are made.

Please rate this response and Good Luck, Phil
