I have turned my shower on by the diverter then the water just stops. I release the diverter and the water comes out of the facet. Then I pull the diverter up the shower comes on and then a few seconds later it turns off again. What can it be? I have already replaced the diverter thinking it was that. But it keeps happening?

It is air in the line. I had the same problem. To solve it you need to find the main water valve in your house, usually in the basement, and shut it off. Then go to the faucet that is giving you the problem and turn on both hot and cold and let them run for a few minutes until there is no water coming out. Leave the faucets turned on and then go back to the main valve and turn it back on. You will hear sputtering noises as the water starts coming back through. Let it run for a few minutes. I had to do it a couple of times to get all of the air out. if that is not working, then you should try to do the same thing, but also open and drain the lowest faucet in your house, like in the basement. Hope that helps. It worked for me. <!-- from fixya rte -->

Bathtub diverter not working


After you use the diverter to get the water to the shower head, you leave it alone. When you turn the water off the diverter will automatically go back to its default position of faucet.

Why does the water not flow from shower valve when turned on?


Do you have water coming out of the tub spout and not the shower head? If so how does the water get directed to the shower head,is it by pulling up the diverter on the tub spout?If water is still coming out of the tub spout then the diverter is bad and the tub spout needs to be replaced.

We have installed a moen 82490 one handle tub & shower unit. When we turn on the water you could shower and bath at the same time. If you pull the plug for just a shower the water to the spout stops...


If you pull the silver knob on the tub spout up, the diverter located located inside will redirect water up to the shower head and when lowered it will return the water to the tub spout. It sounds as thought the diverter is not working properly. Hope this helps..

Water sprays out the diverter


Remove hot/cold button in handle, remove screw/pull off handle. Remove the two screws in the wall plate/remove plate. Use a wrench to remove the diverter assembly. Get new diverter assy and reinstall eveything. You don't need to turn off the water.

Bath tube plumbing is making vibrating sound then shutting off


Replace the cartridge even if its new. The vibrating is from the internal workings of the stem. It also effects the volume of water.


good luck, Phil
