I have a K-R10430. I was having issues with the hand spray - poor water pressure. Kholer sent out a new diverter. After shutting off watner, when you remove the small screw in the back of the Spout, pull the spout off. Put a paper towel into the body to soak up excess water inside body. Then you need a small screw driver or small flat item to fit inside one side of the retaining ring near the opening, there is a space where you can fit something behind and carefully move the retaining ring out. Pull out with needle nose pliers then pull the diverter out with needle nose pliers. Insert new diverter with teeth facing up and push down. Insert retaining ring and make sure it slips into same **** in wall of body.

    Locate a large diameter wood screw that can be screwed into the hole in the middle of the old diverter and pull the old diverter out. I had the same issue and this worked fast and efficiently. If the top part of the old diverter (White in color) is still in tact, pull it off with needle nose pliers exposing a hole now use the wood screw.

My single handle Delta T&S valve doesn't deliver water to the hand held shower when I pull down the spout diverter.

The spout diverter may be corroded and unable to divert the flow completely. I had one job where the spout had to be replaced to get the diverter to function.

Can I clean tub spout diverter, does it unscrew so I can clean aerator?

Even if you unscrew your diverter, there isn't anything you can do to make it perform any better. It's best to replace your tub spout/diverter combo. I imagine your getting water out of the spout when in shower mode......they do wear out when used a lot. If you decide to change your spout, write back and I can guide you through the process of ID and removal/replacement procedure. But if your not a pretty good handy person, call your plumber to do it 4 u. He would appreciate your business. Good luck with your problem and always know where and how to turn your house water supply off before attempting a plumbing repair. :-)

Shower head wont turn all the way off

the seal on the diverter may have fallen off, or bad/dirty diverter.

when the water is turned off, does the diverter return to "normally open" state? (no divert, goes directly through tub spout)

I have a garden tub w/o a shower attached. However, the fixture in the tub is the Delta pull down diverter (dont know why they would put that in a tub w/o a shower). Anyway, the diverter was pulled down...

If it was me... I would replace that spout...
the spout either is threaded on or it has a set screw on the bottom at the back that you loosen and then pull the spout off by pulling straight away from the wall...
Check and see if the spout has the hole for the set screw...if not then twist it counter clockwise and it will turn off...
then repalce the spout with a new one with out the diverter...

When I run water through this tub spout (diverter in down position) I still have water leaking from the showerhead. I have seen water from a tub spout when the shower is on, but not the other way around....

After you turn water off in about 30 secs pull the diverter up and leave for a few minutes This should allow the water left in shower piipe to drain out the spigot

There is a very slow leak only at the weep hole site under the faucet, not at the main faucet outlet

The hole is designed to let water out instead of going back into your wall. The spout needs to be taken off (unscrewed usually by hand) and tephlon tape needs to be put on the threads coming out of the wall. After this is done, screw the spout back on. Should be all set.
