Most of the time this is an o-ring problem. Either the o-ring is worn out or has been replaced by the wrong size o-ring.

How do i repair bellera #r560vs kitchen faucet reduced/low cold water flow have installed newfaucet valve


Turn off the hot & cold water supply lines at the shut-off valves.

Yo need to use the correct replacement cartridge for the faucet you are fixing

The cartridge replacement procedure requires using food grade silicone lubricant around the base of the new cartridge and around the threads of the bonnet.

Then you must properly align the 2 bumps on the bottom of the cartridge with the inside body of the faucet.

Insert and tighten down the bonnet that holds the cartridge in place to where it is snug- do not over tighten the bonnet!

Then reinstall the trim piece and lever.

Slowly, fully open the hot and cold water shut-offs and check for leaks at the shut offs, sink handle, and spout.

If you are using the Watts brand floodsafe supply lines, turn the hot and cold water shut-offs, on slowly. Rapid flow and pressure may activate the floodsafe valve within the supply line, causing little to no water flow to the faucet.

I have low water pressure How do i get more ?


If this is just on the outside faucet then you probably have a shut off in the house for winter/maintenance shut down. Look in the ceiling from the basement where the pipes come in and follow that until you see a valve. Turn it on and you should have water. Most of the times the shut off is just inside the wall from where the faucet is.

Leaky faucet


If your faucet is dripping out of the spout. This is how to repair it if you have a faucet with this type of cartridge system

For details see diagram attached.
In the order you see. Valve nut, o-ring (may or may not be used in your valve) Valve Cartridge, Cup Washer and Spring.

Turn off the water to the valve at the water supply under the sink if you have shut-off valves there. Otherwise you will have to turn off the water to the whole house. Open some of the other faucets in the house if you have to turn the whole house water supply off at the water meter valve to reduce the line pressure. Open the handles of the faucet you are working on as well after you turn of the water either way.

If it has two handles there should be a set screw that holds the handle on. You will need the appropriate allen wrench for the set screw. Loosen that and wiggle the handle off the valve stem carefully. There is a brass nut that holds the valve cartridge in the valve body. Using a small pair of channel lock pliers or the appropriate box wrench. Loosen and remove that brass nut. Once that is off, grasp the valve stem with the channel locks and gently wiggle the valve as you pull upward. There will be some suction that wants to hold it in so this may take some finessing to loosen and remove. Be firm but gentile. Make sure you pay attention to the position the cartridge is in so you can place the cartridge back in the same position it was when you removed it. Otherwise, the handle will not be in the proper position when you put it back on.
Once you have the cartridge out. There should be a small black cup washer that sits in a hole on top of a spring at the bottom of the inside of the valve body. You should replace both the spring and cup washer.
You can find them at your local hardware store or big box DIY store.
I use a real small screwdriver to lift the washer and spring out.
When you go to place the new cup washer and spring back in place.
Place the spring in the whole with the larger side down. Then, to place the cup washer back. Place the cup washer on the small screwdriver and hold it with your index finger and lower it to the whole over the spring. Once you have the cup washer over the spring. You have to get the wider bottom part of the washer into the hole. Holding the washer down with your index finger. Use the small screwdriver tip to push the side of the washer into the hole working your way around the washer. Pressing the sides of the washer inward so the bottom edge pops into the hole over the spring. Once you fell the washer pop in and seat. Push straight down to get it fully placed. Then reverse the procedure you used above to remove the cartridge. Paying careful attention to the position the cartridge was in when you removed it and replacing it in the exact same position. There are o-rings or an o-ring around the cartridge so you'll have to wiggle the cartridge and press down to get it to seat level. Place the nut back over the cartridge and tighten down firmly. Replace the handle and tighten the set screw.

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!


  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    Jsut installed a tuscany Asti Tub and Shower Faucet, when the mixer handle is centered and you are running thru tub spout, water still comes out of shower pipe. it does not do this if solely set to hot or...


    Check the valve body to make sure it is right side up. there will be a marking on the valve that tells witch is to go to the tub spout and witch to the shower head. If you have it right then you will need to disassemble the valve body and look for debris in the cartridge.

    Turned off the hot water to fix a leaking tap. now the tap has no hot or cold water and the hot water tank valve is leaking?


    It sounds like two problems.
    Problem 1) Clog inside faucet or clog inside pipes at faucet
    Remove supply tubes leading to faucet and see if problem is inside pipes or inside faucet.
    My bet is clog inside faucet.

    If you have galvanized pipe that meets copper pipe, this can be trouble spot.
    Article on clogged water pipes at Inspectapedia:
    http://www.inspectapedia.com/water/Water_Pipe_Clog_Repair_Guide.htm

    Article on clogged pipes:
    http://www.waterheaterrescue.com/pages/WHRpages/English/Troubleshooting/Tanklets/backflushing.html

    Problem 2) Water heater leak ... you say tank valve is leaking? Is that cold-water shut-off valve? Or tank drain valve? Or TP valve?

    If cold water shut-off is leaking, then replace shut off.

    If tank drain valve is leaking, then check if plastic valve is cracked. If drain valve is cracked, then replace with a brass valve from Home Depot. If plastic valve breaks off, then use hammer and screwdriver to gently chip out the broken plastic valve. New valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe. If valve is just dripping, then put garden-hose cap over end of valve and screw down tight.

    If TP valve is leaking, then replace with same temperature and pressure rating.
    New TP valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe.

    Problem 3) If pressure is low all over house:
    Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that screws onto hose connection.

    Test pressure on outdoor spigot.
    Open faucet and check if pressure drops. This says if problem is inside pipes that enter house.

    Test pressure on water heater drain valve.
    This says if pressure problem is before -or- after water heater.

    If problem is before the water heater, then shut-off valve located on cold water line is suspect.
    If problem is after water heater, it could be in hot water outflow pipe on top of water heater, or a nearby elbow.

    Remove hot water line leading from water heater and check pressure. This says if problem is where hot water leaves tank.
    Read articles above about clogs inside water lines.

    Moen kitchen sink faucet side sprayer is stuck on


    We had this same problem. We twisted off the sprayer cap to access the diverter valve under the trigger. The nylon diverter was stuck down into the cavity and was not popping out when the trigger was released. We pushed it down several times with needle nosed pliers to release it then applied a drop of household oil lubricant with the valve pushed all the way in. Then pushed and released several times to work the lubricant around the sides of the valve. After re-assembly, the sprayer seems to work perfectly again.

    How do I, myself, fix a faucet leak?


    Faucets in general operate either with a one handle valve stem or valve stems that uses small pieces of rubber to precent the water flow. In a single handle model this is usually caused by mineral deposits building up and the valve not being able to fully restrict the flow of water. The fix here is usually a new stem. On models that use a two handle system and do have replaceable valve stems one must get a repacement seat from a hadware store and reinstall the stem. In extreme cases the valve body may need to be ground internally and will require a professional. If you do not a have replaceable stems than the only alternative is a new faucet. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.
