Replaced a gerber diverted stem. Water pours out of it. I also replaced the stem valves for the hit and cold.

There should have been a friction ring made of either nylon or fiber that goes on the threads of the stem that screws into the faucet. If this ring is missing, the stem doesn't seal properly. Remove the stem and check for ring. Also, when you screw in the stems, you should always screw the stem into the full open position, or it will not thread in all the way.

Diagram-Type Faucets


  • The diaphragm faucet is washerless but is similar to washer-type faucets. A rubber diaphragm between the stem and seat creates a straight-down, frictionless close. As with washer-type faucets, diaphragm faucets have two handles.

  • Remove the stem by following the steps outlined for washer-type faucets. Instead of a washer on the end of the stem, you'll find a swiveling disc. If the rubber diaphragm doesn't come out with the stem, it is still inside the faucet.

  • If the diaphragm didn't come out with the stem, use pliers to peel it from inside the faucet and pull it out. Install a new diaphragm around the swiveling disc, then replace the stem in the faucet.

  • If the faucet is leaking around the stem, replace the stem's O-ring before reinstalling the stem.

Raising handlebars on schwinn ditch 2.0 dn

The above answer is incorrect. The Ditch has what is called a "threadless" fork/stem setup. One cannot raise the stem at all unless there are spacers above it. Raising the stem is also not the only option. A stem with a shorter "reach" may be sufficient. Google "threadless stem riser" to see options for raising the stem. Following is a video with the procedure.

Raise handlebars reaction bicycle

From looking at photos; it appears as though that bike uses what is called a "quill" type stem. This makes it much easier to accomplish your goal.

When you look at your bike - the part that connects the handlebar to the frame is the stem. The vertical portion of the stem should be a cylinder: no bolts or clamping mechanisms. At the top of the vertical portion that goes into the frame there should be the head of a bolt. This bolt usually requires a 6mm allen wrench to adjust and is the one bolt that secures the stem to the frame.

Putting an appropriately sized wrench into the head of this bolt and turning the wrench to the left should loosen the bolt. Turning it far enough that the stem becomes movable will allow you to raise the stem. However, carefully note this one thing:

There will me a line - solid or hashed - about 2 inches from the bottom of the stem quill. This is the minimum insertion line. The stem needs to be inserted into the frame to this point at a minimum - no less. If this line is already showing before you attempt to raise the stem, you can go to higher with this stem.
Furthermore; if this does not provide enough vertical adjustment to satisfy you; replacement of the stem with one that either has a longer quill or more vertical rise will be necessary. This is where a trip to a local bike shop will be required to identify the proper size and dimensions of stem to solve your problem.

The bolt at the top of the stem may not turn and may be seized in the stem or frame. Penetrating oil like "PB Blaster" or even WD-40 may help. Surrounding the area with ice in a bucket or bag to cool it and then using a blow-dryer or heat gun on high can help to free the seized parts too.

If your stem does not look like the description above, but instead has bolts or a clamping mechanism around the cylinder; it is a threadless stem and cannot be adjusted higher. A new stem with more vertical rise is the solution and can usually be purchased starting at about $20-$35.

Good luck-

How to free a seized stem

If you have the type of stem that inserts into the fork (through the steerer tube), there are a couple of tricks.

1) Make sure the stem bolt is loose. but not completely free. Tap on the stem bolt with a hammer. This works if the stem wedge inside is the culprit. Wiggle back and forth and things should come free.

2) If this does not loosen things, then you will need to put some lubricant like Liquid Wrench inbetween the stem and steerer and let soak in a while. Repeat solution 1.

3) if it still does not free-up then try a little more force with the hammer and using some sort of pry bar to add leverage to work the stem loose.

4) if none of these work, you have a major problem, and if you want the stem removed you need to take the bike into a shop and have a mechanic look at it before you destroy your frame trying to take the stem out.

Good luck, seized stems can require a lot of muscle to get free, especially if they have rusted to the steerer.

I would like to raise the handlebars. I have loosened the stem wedge nut and the handle bars will not budge. I've tried everything almost to the point of losing the ball bearings in the steering shaft. Are...

Hey joe - Sounds like you have a classic stuck stem. Here are a couple things to try.

1 - Loosen the stem through the top bolt so the wedge is loose, but not removed. The give the top of the stem a good hit or two with a plastic mallet. That should break the bond between the steerer and the stem. If that does not work...

2 - Use liquid Wrench and drip around the stem so it seeps in-between the stem and steerer. Let sit a while then try the plastic mallet again.

sometimes you will need to work the stem back and forth a bit by using the handlebars as leverage and bracing the front wheel between your knees.

If neither of these get your stem loose, then it's time to take into a bike shop.

BTW - stems have a maximum insertion/ extension. There is a line of max extenstion that should be on the shaft when you get it removed. If you discover that the stem will not raise your handlebars enough, then you can get a replacement stem with a higher shaft and greater angle to lift the bars up.

How do I tighten the stem bolt on the handlebar stem?

If you just need to raise the height of the stem, all you need to do is loosen the hex nut at the top of the handlebar stem with a box wrench or adjustable wrench. This is the head of the stem bolt. Once loosened enough the stem should slide up and completely out (if necessary) of the stem casing. There is a tightening mechanism consisting of two soft metal pieces that tighten against each other when the stem bolt is tightened. When this is loose you can raise the stem to various heights. If you find you cannot raise it to your desired height you may need to replace the stem and bolt. However, if the bike has been sized properly to fit your leg length, you should have no problem there. Once the height of the stem is satisfactory just tighten the bolt while keeping the stem straight and you'll be ready to go!

Stem on lcd monitor can't be removed

Usually the stem has a plastic cover that hides the securing screws from view. You must pry up the cover to reveal the screws securing the stem to the monitor. This is most easily done with a Plastic pry bar or plastic putty knife. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Broken stem off aromen gobletover 50yrs old maker bleirristall made in bavaria.germany 24% clear stem any chance of repair have broken pieces was my Mothers passed away meens the world to me please help...

Is the stem broken near the crown? Or do you think there is enough stem to take out of crown? If not you probibly will have to go to a watchmake (NOT a watch repairman) to make you the stem. If there is enough metal to take stem out of the crown you may be able to get someone to solder the stem back together. I do that reguarly with stems that are vintage, and I don't want have the time to remake the whole stem. Let me know. Good Luck!!!!
