Question about Delta 2402 Classic Single Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray Chrome...

1 Answer

I have a leaking Delta single handle kitchen faucet, The leak is between the faucet and the knob at the top. I have replaced the ball, 2 springs, two seals, the cap with a notch in it washer for that and the 2 "O" rings around the body. Put it all together and it still leaks in the same place. I used the bigger "O" rings that came with the repair kit, but it still seems to be leaking around those. And yes I did use silicone grease.

I may be able to help you. Some faucets are made with the option to have a base or to mount directly to the counter.The bigger washer might be the one that seals the faucet to the counter The leak out of the top of the faucet is probably caused from the plastic nut with the grooves in the top of it not being tight enough. The repair kit should have came with a tool that has a allen wrench on one end and two prongs on the other.Use the pronged end to tighten the plastic nut ,If the other parts where put in correctly this should cure your problem. If the faucet continues to leak you can get a pamplet that will give you instructions from a rep at the plumbing supply or on line in one of the sights for Delta Faucets.

HOW DO I INSTALL A SEAL KIT


A metal ball controls the temperature and flow of water from the spout in the vast majority of Delta single-lever faucets. That ball rests on three rubber seals, each seal suspending the ball with a single spring. Over time, wear on the seals, the springs and even the ball itself typically results in leaks. Thankfully, repairing the faucet is relatively simple, and Delta even makes repair kits with the replacement parts needed for each model.


Turn off the valve that controls the main water supply. The valve is located next to the water meter, inside or outside the house, and must be twisted in a clockwise direction.

Remove the plastic cap from the center of the faucet's handle by prying the cap free with the blade of a dull knife or a flat-head screwdriver, then remove the screw in the center of the faucet handle with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the handle off the faucet assembly to remove it

  • Remove the single bonnet nut that surrounds the faucet valve with an adjustable wrench. Grip the bonnet nut at the base, which is ribbed to give the wrench a surface to grasp, and turn in a counterclockwise direction to remove it.

  • Remove the circular, white plastic cam that surrounds the top of the faucet, pulling it off and revealing a rubber seal, which you also remove. Next, pull the metal ball out of the faucet assembly and pry out the ball's supporting rubber seals and their springs with a screwdriver (the springs slide onto the bottom of each seal, so they will come out along with the seals).

  • Slide one replacement spring onto each of the three replacement seals that come with the Delta repair kit for your faucet model, then insert each seal into the assembly. Insert the replacement ball from the repair kit, then cap it by putting the replacement rubber seal over the ball, followed by the plastic cam

  • Place the bonnet nut over the faucet valve, then tighten the nut with an adjustable wrench. Position the handle onto the end of the faucet, then insert a screw into the center of the handle, tighten it with a Phillips-head screwdriver and, finally, press the decorative plastic cap over the screw.

  • Turn on the valve that controls the main water supply by twisting the valve in a counterclockwise direction to complete the repair

    Leaking shower faucet


    I do believe that Delta guarantees their faucets for life. Go online to get the 800 number and call them, have the model number ready. They actually sent my girlfriend a replacement for her $300 kitchen faucet and also the guts to 2 bathroom faucets. They come with diagrams also. Of course I had to install them, but they stand behind their stuff.

    Replace the seal on the 470 DST single handle pull out faucet


    Turn the water off at the faucet, remove the handle and the retaining nut that is apart of the trim. You will see where you can use a wrench to remove it. The ball assembly will come right out and you can replace the washers right below it. Put it back together and if needed, tighten the tension ring that is on the retaining nut (usually grey or white in color) so it won't leak water around the ball stem. Good luck.

    Leakes around spout


    You remove the handle after turning the water off the to faucet. Remove the retaining nut which is apart of the trim. The ball assymbly will pull right out and you will find the two little washers and springs below the ball. You can buy a rebuild kit with the new ball if you like but it is not necessary. When you do replace the washers, it might be necessary to tighen the tension ring that is on the retaining nut. Tighten it unit it doesn't leak around the ball stem.
