Question about Danze Plumbing

1 Answer

Bought a home, main kitchen faucet is a Danze NSF

Bought a home, main kitchen faucet is Danze NSF 61/9. Problem is that unless the tap is all the way on (handle up at furthest extreme) the handle will move down under what seems like just gravity and close the water off. When I remove the handle and expose the top of the cartridge there is a fair bit of resistance by using fingers to operate tap and nothing appears to loose. Seems like handle is designed too end heavy. Any ideas?

I'm not familiar with a NSF 61/9, but I've used several other models. I believe these are all ceramic disc valve. They almost never wear out. If you remove the handle and the trim cap or bonnet, there should be a nut or adjusting ring you can tighten. Don't over do it. The handle give you quite a bit more leverage than the small tap when it is removed. Here is Danze web site and you can look up your exact model number and see a exploded parts list: www.danze.com

What makes the faucet bind?


I'm just installing the exact same faucet and I found that the side to side motion was binding if I tightened the tap too much from the bottom with the nut & "c" shaped clamp with the 2 set screws. Not sure what it could be if yours was fine & started having trouble.
They have support contact info on their website that you may want to try: http://www.danze.com/customer_support.asp
Good Luck,

My Danze NSF 61 9 makes a loud howling noise ant almost any level of water flow. I have tried to adjust the water preasure but it does not help. Any ideas?


Brand new ours did not have this problem. It does now and I think the reason is the seam in the chrome over the handle is cracked and pressure leaks out causing the noise. It's now bad enough that it leaks also. Glue fixed both problems temporarly but its doing it again so I'm looking for a replacement. That's how I came across this post.

Looking for parts breakdown picture for DANZE NSF 61 Kitchen Faucet Any Links?


NSF 61(-9) is a standard rather than the model number (it's often very difficult to identify the model number. If you are able to find the model number, the link attached has all the technical specs for Danze products (even discontinued ones). http://www.danze.com/tech_specs.asp

Otherwise, I suggest browsing their faucet section until you find yours.

Good luck.

Water flow is too powerful..


I got you, you want a screen to be put on the spout!
check the inside of the spout. there may be a internal thread, if it is, then you can get a external thread screen from home depot.

Danz cartridge removal


Loosening the set screw behind the small plastic hot/cold plug will allow you to lift the handle straight up. You may need to jiggle it a little bit or twist it, just pull straight up with the faucet handle down and centered. Once the handle comes off, Then the collar should thread off exposing the inner workings of the faucet. You should then be able to unthread a bunch more components and washers until the cartridge top is exposed (depends somewhat on whether it is a pullout hose or seperate sprayer...not sure exactly what model you have but this is the standard for a single handle kitchen faucet...)

Here is a link to a page that shows how your (hopefully your) faucet goes together... also includes the re-order info for cartridge (#8)...

I would also check the supply stops to make sure they are not clogged, because it is definetly a sediment problem.

Slow running tap


If you have recently turned off your water supply you may have disturbed some sediment in the water lines causing this problem.....Unscrew the airator at the end of the faucet and there is a screen inside( take note how this screen is in place). This should give you water pressure back!
