There is a small compression nut on the drain, it needs to be tightened slightly. look under the sink when you pull the lever up close the stopper, you will see where it connects to the drain. tighten that nut slightly.
do not over tighten or you won't be able to move the stopper at all, you just need enough pressure to hold the weight of the lifting rod and stopper in place.

SOURCE: Bathroom sink stopper came unhooked and out, not attached anymore

You will need to get under there and unscrew the popup rod located on the back of the drain. pull out the rod, drop the stopper in there and push the rod through the hole in the bottom of the stopper. screw the nut back on.

Clogged drain on moen bathroom sink


There should be a stopper valve on the sink's downspout (the first section of drain pipe). You SHOULD be able to loosen the nut holding the stopper valve's lever inside the pipe. Once you remove that nut, you can pull the lever out - that releases the stopper inside the sink, so you should start with the stopper OPEN, and hold it open with a chopstick or pencil or other tool when you remove that lever.

The lever and the bottom of the stopper itself will be wrapped with masses of hair. That's normal. Clean it up and reinsert it, put the nut back on & snug it down, then readjust the stopper.

If that's not enough, you may need to open the trap (the gooseneck-shaped piece of drain pipe under the sink) to clean it out.

Stopper no longer stays in up position on my bathroom sink


Solution to the most common design...
If you can pull the stopper completely out of the drain with no resistance, do this.
On the back side of the tailpiece that attaches to the bottom of the bowl, there is a rod coming out of the back side that has a nut holding it in. Unscrew that nut and pull the rod out part of the way. There usually is a loop molded into the plastic on the lower end of the stopper where that rod inserts into. Turn the stopper until that loop is aligned toward the faucet and insert back into the drain but not all the way (keep it held up about 1/4-1/2 inch from completely closed). Reach under the sink and feel for the rod while you are holding the stopper in place and push it back in while you "feel" for the loop. You will know it is inside the loop when you can't pull the stopper out with not resistance. Screw then nut back onto the threads and finger tighten it until it has enough friction to hold itself at any position.

Hope it helps...

Delta faucet will not hold water


The linkage to the drain stopper has to be adjusted so that the stopper seats when the rod is raised. If the stopper lifts out of the drain, it may be necessary to remove the lifter rod and insert it through the holes in the bottom of the stopper then reinstall. After this, pulling up on the faucet rod will force the stopper to seat rather than drop by gravity. The tradeoff is that you will not be able to remove the stopper without disassembly of the connection

Hi I recently bought a CA84667CBN bathroom faucet but lost the manual. How do I connect the water stopper?


http://www.hometips.com/diy-how-to/bathroom-faucet-installation.html
These pictures are not very good and there are videos because it's kind of hard to explain but, I'll try. The drain stop rod that goes through the fixture and would hang in your vanity should have a piece that bolts to it with holes in it. you need to pick the hole to go over the shaft taht sticks out of the drain pipe, That controls the stopper, taht will close the stopper when pulled up and, will open stopper enough to let water drain. You use the "v" shaped piece with the 2 holes in it to attach the two together. You have to position the v piece over both sides of the plunger piece and then squeeze and put the whole thing over the shaft of the pluger actuator. If you type, "how to install a faucett" in your search window, you can pick a video on how to install a "bathroom faucett" that will give you pictures. It's really hard to try to explain.

We have american standard bathroom faucets with speed connect drains and they're draining slow


Disconnect the speed drain and pull the stopper out to see if it drains fine with the stopper out and if it does then you need to clean the parts and reinstall same.

I have a Moen Monticello bathroom faucet. I am


Moving left to right: I am not an expert, but I have installed a fair number of faucets. Seems like a basic issue of just getting under the sink and tightening up. Make sure someone is topside to assure the faucet stays straight and does not move as you tighten up below. It is never easy to get a wrench and your hands in the proper position to tighten up the nut, but don't give up try a smaller Channel lock wrench if necessary.

Bathroom tub drain clogged


If you have a popup/ plunger type drain stopper controlled by a lever at the overflow, then, yes, it would be a great idea to remove that. They commonly add to drain problems.

Remove the two screws at the overflow plate (the one with the lever for stopping the water). Be careful that the gasket between the tub and overfow does not fall out when you fully remove the screws. Pull out the stopper assembly. You may have to jiggle it somewhat. Clear your drain some more and run a little water in it. Then replace the stopper assembly, making sure to keep the overflow drain lined up as you screw the plate back in.

You may consider replacing a lever stopper with a "twist and twirl" type.

If you do not have a lever assembly then you may have to use a small hand held snake to clear out the drain

I installed a new sink and pop up drain assembly. But the drain drains very slow because the stopper does not go high enough. I have tried adjusting the pop up assembly.


make sure that the piece going in to the drain that moves your stopper up and down is all the way in the hole on the bottom of the stopper once that is in hold the rod down so your stop is up then attach it to the piece attached to your rod this should solve your problem good luck
