Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.

    i was wondering the same thing about the plastic piece in the back of the pipe. I pulled one thinking it was the little plastic piece that Danco has with the kit... It isn't. But it will go back in with a bit of persuation. I replaced the o-ring on it, but didn't matter. Pulled it again as it was still leaking. Looked down the pipe and saw a little calcium build up. Took care of that with a little elbow grease and a toothbrush as I didn't want to score the inside of the pipe, but it still drips out the tub spigot. I believe it is due to me scroring the plastic piece when inoriginally removed it. Found out online that that piece is replaceable with a metal one. Now I'm off to the plumbers supply to see if I can get lucky and find it locally. If not, I might just replace the thing with a more serviceable one as the hard water here will make this a reoccurring issue.

HOW DO YOU ASSEMBLE AND INSTALL A DANCO 9S-4H/C


Turn off the water supplying the faucet. Now open the faucet. Remove handle by taking off index button and removing screw. You may need to purchase a handle puller, 10-15 dollars, and a stem wrench set. After removing handle, place appropiate sized wrench on stem and turn counter clockwise. Before installing stem, make sure it is in the open position. You may need to use the handle to turn the new stem. Screw in clockwise.

Tub handle stem wont come out- 9c-23H/C 3 handle Danco for american standard


I had a similar problem when looking to replace my shower valves with 9C-23H/C units. The old ones were very hard to get out, I imagine that they were the original ones that came with the house.
Do NOT cut into the wall, that will not get you anywhere. There is a nut that fits around the plumbing end of the stem; this is likely what is stuck. I had to put my foot on the wall and pull hard on the vise grips to get the stem out. You may want to use a flashlight and see if there is any scale build up which is getting in the way. Try to scrape that away if possible. Pull straight out on the stem very firmly, but don\'t yank on it, use constant pressure and avoid up and down movement as the nut has a tight clearance to make it out.
Going behind the wall should be an absolute last resort.

Where does washer go for 12h-6h/c stem from Danco for faucet?


Is it brass, stainless, plastic or rubber? I think a stainless one might be for the knob screw, I don't think there is one inside, it might just have fallen into the pack. We get weird stuff all the time that doesn't belong. Hope this helps.

Have you checked with a plumbing supply hose if it is a square slot you may could use a handle off a boiler drain for a washing machine .

Check it out if it is a metal red or blue metal it may be the same type used on your washing machine cut off valve

I bought a replacement Danko faucet cartridge for an american standard bathroom sink and the package said hot/cold but when I installed it on the cold side the handle turns the wrong way. How do I reverse...


Thae stem you got that said hot/cold were designed to fit old style cross handle faucets. So both hot and cold turned the same way. If the cold side you are replacing turns the opposite direction then you will need to get a cold stem. Danco does make them. Ask the retailer where you purchased the H/C stem. I hope this helps..
