Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet

1 Answer

Bathroom Faucet Problem: There is a one-handle bathroom sink faucet (older Delta model circa 1995) that doesn't give hot water. When turned to the right, it gives cold water. Turned to the left, it just shuts off. All other faucets in the house have hot water. Thank you.

I have two vanities and a shower in the bathroom. We only get hot water to the sinks when we turn on the shower to hot. Even if we turn off the shower we will still get hot water for a while. It just seems...


Check the water supply lines to the shower at the faucet handles. If the fitting for the hot water line connected to the handle is loose, it can twist and kink off the water supply further down the line when you turn the faucet handle. I'm not exactly sure how this could be relevant otherwise, but under normal design circumstances this type of scenario with your shower wouldn't matter for other faucets.

Go to delta website, take a picture of faucet with your cell phone and send. They should be able to identify and send you the parts. Meanwhile you'll have to turn water on and off from the emergency shut off valve under the sink. If it looks like the picture, it's probably the rubber seat and spring. If you don't want to wait go to your local "hardware" store. There may be someone there to help you. Bring the stem or cartridge, along with the rubber seat and spring. Don't use cold water while stem is removed. Turn cold off as well to prevent a mishap.

Have hot water in the bathroom sink spigot, but the shower is the single handle and turned on all the way, water is not hot...too much cold mixing, How do you adjust it?


You need to take the handle off...ususally held on with a small allen screw on the bottom side of the handle. After removing the handle there should be a dial setting.

How to disassemble the delta single handle bathroom faucet


Before taking it apart, you need to turn off the cold and hot water valves under the sink. Once you have done that, open the faucet and let the remaining water run out into the sink. Since I am not sure what the age of your faucet is. I will be using instructions for a common Delta faucet.

1. There is a hole towards the bottom of the handle in the front. It may have a plastic button there. If so, pry the button off with a very small flat head screwdriver. Try not to damage it.

2. If your going to replace the seals, it is best to by the rebuild kit that comes with a special tool. It includes the allen wrench and spanner wrench in one. And all necessary parts to rebuild it.

3. Once you get the handle off, you will see a dome shaped part with two notches in it. It may have ridges on the side of it. That is the special fitting that holds all the parts down.

4. Remove the dome shaped part with the tool provided with the parts kit.

5. Replace all parts that match yours.

6. Install everything in reverse order and you should be good to go.

I have a leaky faucet in my bathroom sink it does not have the screws thats why cant open it


YES YOU CAN, JUST HAVE A LITTLE FAITH. THIS TWO HANDLE FAUCET ACTUALLY HIDES THE SCREWS UNDER THE HANDLE. SIMPLY TWIST THE HORIZONTAL SHAFT OF THE HANDLE COUNTER-CLOCKWISE AND IT WILL REVEAL A SET SCREW WHICH WILL ALLOW YOU TO REMOVE THE HANDLE FROM THE BODY OF THE FAUCET. REMEMBER TURN OFF THE WATER.

Very low pressure when turn on the hot water faucet in sink


Shut off the water supply and open your faucets, and apply air pressure (min. 30psi) to dislodge any blockage in the pipes.

The unit has a croosbar connecting the hot and cold water. How do you remove the crossbar to replace the faucet


Do we want to remove the faucet from the top of the sink?

First shut-off the water via the two valves under the sink. Then un-thread the hoses from the bottom of the sink. Sometimes it is possible to do with ordinary house tools but more than likely you will need to purchase a basin wrench for about $10. This wrench will allow you easy access to the bottom of the faucet.

Then, using the same wrench, un-thread the nut that is threaded on the same threads as the hose. This nut if probably pretty tight and will take some effort.

Replacing is the exact opposite except when replacing be sure to use plumbers putty on the bottom of the faucet as a means to keep water from running under the faucet base and ruining your cabinet.
