Shower/tub converter dial will not switch to

Shower/tub converter dial will not switch from shower spray to spout run....only will spray thru shower nozzel. When I took the knob off and fiddled with it, plugging the hole with my finger...only once did the water run out the spout. What could be wrong? The dial turns freely opening and closing, but won't let the water run out the spout.....just up to the shower no matter how I turn it.
BTW...I couldn't find Faucets in the product catagory! Hope you can help.

Shower head leaks


Yes, the "switch" (to redirect the water to the shower head) is not closing/sealing completely (when you are using the tub spout.) Depending on the spout (model), you may have to replace the part where the "switch" is located, e.g. the spout.

Water leak thru valve when turn to shower


a lot of shower diverters do this..you may need a bigger seal on the diverter..if you can remove the spout assembly from the tub(with the diverter valve in it) and take it all to the hardware store.. see if they have a different seal/diverter that has a snugger fit but still falls to drain the shower head line out..that will slow that leakage..the spout is on a pipe and unscrews counter clockwise(normally)unless its a single valve unit..with the wide ring around the back..then that calls for a plumber..

Water comes out both spout and showe head when temperqture control is adjusted


Something is blocking the flow thru the tub spout. Make sure the dirverter moves properly. It mat be stuck partialy closed.
If that does not work take the tub spout off and see if you still have the problem. If that fixes it get a new tub spout.

When i'm filling the tub with water, the water back feeds up to the shower head and sprays out. I changed the spout and also moved the shower knob to make sure it wasn't stuck in the up position for the...


You will have water coming out of the shower head when you have really good water pressure. There might be more water volume coming out through the valve then what the tub spout can handle and in turn sends the water up to your shower head. When you fill your tub try turning the water only half way on not at full pressure, does this keep the water from coming out of the shower head? Most likely your valve has a 3/4" supply line while your shower head and tub have only a 1/2" supply line. Sounds like you have more volume to the valve than what the tub spout can handle. You might consider one of two things: 1) you can put a water regulator on the main supply line going into the house to lower your pressure, or 2) change out the supply line to the tub spout, increasing it from 1/2" to 3/4". Let me know whats going on.

Is there a button on the tub filler? How about the spout on the tub, does it lift up? If there is not a tub spout then it should be shower only, if it has a tub spout it has to have a lifter of some sort, the foto I found showed the little button lifter. Hope this helps.

I would look into the spout being the issue. The spout is a bypass when the shower is on and yours seems to be letting water get through. I would replace the spout..

I just installed a series 13/14 single valve tub/shower faucet. When I try to turn on just the tub spout, the shower comes on as well. What could be causing this?


most likely problem is to much pressure in water lines if u have shut off valves on to feed lines turn them down a little will decrease pressure to the valve other problem the spout {tub} diverted is partially engaged, loose,debris or defective if u can reremove the spout and observe the valve for proper function
