Take out the little plastic hot and cold water symbol from the handle and you should find a set screw in which you can remove to get the handle of for access to the main insert and seal...Hope this helps.

    I am way beyond that. I am to the point of removing the copper ring that holds the assembly together and it is frozen. I have soaked with vinager and water, with penetrating oil and used huge channel locks but it will not budge. I am reluctant to apply heat.

My american standard shower is sending water from the shower when using the tub faucet


Probably a defective, corroded or half stuck diverter. This is the part that diverts the water either to the tub or shower. Disassemble, inspect, repair or replace.

The simple method is to take the faucet head off the extension pipe that comes out of the wall. It will take two pair of pliers and a firm grip to take it off. Using a wet/dry shop vac at the supply end and a garden hose at the shower end, force water backwards through the faucet head.

Hi, my shower faucet /head drips regularly how to repair the leak?


You need to order seals and replace them. Typically, dirt in the water system damages the rubber (neoprene, plastic) soft parts. Sometimes the damage wrecks metal parts, but this is less common.

I have a single handle shower valve by Moen. Water is slowly leaking past the valve when shut off. I got the handle off but need to know how to further disassemble so I can replace whatever seal or o-ring...


there is a clip holding the cartridge in place. You need to remove that and then there is a little plastic throw away tool that comes with a new cartridge that you use to break the seals loose on the old cartridge....then you use a pair of channel locks to grab the stem and pull it out. The new cartridge should come with detailed instructions.
If it is a moentrol valve...the part number is 1225 and if it is a posi-temp it is a 1222. Moentrol you pull out to turn on and then left and right for temp adjustment. Posi-temp just turns to turn on and you turn from cold to hot to adjust through the temp range.

The shower head is leaking. I disassembled the


You need to pull and replace the cartridge on your shower valve most likely. It varies by Make and Model, but generally, remove the handle, remove any sleeve around the center spine, remove the round trim plate, close the service stops, remove the retaining clip or ring, and pull the cartridge straight out of the valve body by pulling on the spline... or get a cartridge puller. Then take your cartridge to the store and get a new one. Flush the valve body by slightly opening both service stops and then install the new cartridge and reverse the process.
Generally this problem occurs when sediment has torn part of the sealing o ring on the cartridge. If you send me the make/model and/or a picture I will give you the specific instructions

No hot water, and low pressure


Do you get hot water at other faucets? If not, check to see if the valves at your hot water heater are completely open. You may also have a blockage somewhere in the hot water line.

If you aren't getting hot water at just one faucet, it's likely that the hot water side of the valve needs to be repaired. It could be that there is a blockage in the valve that needs to be cleaned out, or seals in the valve may need to be replaced. Rebuild kits are available for many shower faucets at your local hardware store.

Be sure to turn off the water supply before attempting to disassemble the shower valve.

Leak in the shower is leaking water through the ceiling


SInce it is wet both under and behind the shower I would rule out the drain floor pan and drain system and think it most likely to be the pipe leaking from the mixing faucets to the shower head. Find studs directly behind shower faucet, n each side. Locate the center of the studs and put vertical lines up and down on the center line of the two studs closes to but outside the shower  faucet on each side. Approximate 6 inches or so  up and down for the height of the shower faucet (Valve, not head) Put Horizontal lines across between the two line at both the top and the bottom/ You now have a square.Using a Razor knife(Sometimes called a box knife, stanley 99a for example) cut into the lines of the square back and forth as deep as you can. Cut an x  acrossthe square corner to corner again as deep as you can . Lightly hit the center of the x until the drywall caves in . Cut the remaining drywall out for the square. Now while  the shower is running you will be able to see whee the leak is. Use pipe seal after disassembling the loose fiting or repair the leak iun what ever manner is necessary. Replace and repair the hole made in the drywall  with another piece of drywall, tape and joint cement. .
