Shut off the water. remove handle and unscrew the cover that holds the internal parts. inspect ball for wear. purchase some valve stem grease at the hardware store.lightly lubricate all moving parts. reassemble but only tighten it snugly. do not crossthread!

My shower control seems to have difficulty providing the right mix of hot and cold water, it has gotten progressively worse. Is this a faulty valve?


If it is a single valve it sounds like the pressure balancer has either failed or is corroded, you might be able to take it out and soak it in CLR for a little while to clean out the hard water so it it will work again. If not you'll have to buy a new cartridge. Best to take the old one with you to Homedepot or Lowe's if you have to replace it.

I have a 1992 Gmc sierra manual transmission, the gears are hard


It is an adjustment or clutch replacenment issue. Manual transmissions rarely have a lube issue unless you have seen a big puddle of very thick oil in the driveway.

I think I'd be looking at the clutch of this 16 year old vehicle. Unless you have the tools, time and skill to change the clutch, this is probably a job better left to a professional. Adjusting the clutch mechanism might help for a while but I think you will soon need a clutch job on your GMC.

My Mo's shower is about 6 years old. I think the


Sure - there is always help at FixYa!

This sounds like a bad cartridge. They can be replaced. To replace the cartridge:

Turn off the water to the tub/shower.
Remove the handle cover (it should pop off)
Remove the center screw (usually phillips head)
Remove the retaining clip holding cartridge in - you can use a pair of long nose piers or a small screwdriver
Grab the cartridge with a pair of pliers and pull straight out. It may require a little force - there are O-rings around the cartridge to keep it from leaking.
Check the cartridge bore (the hole where the cartridge was removed)
Clean any debris or scale - lime away or CLR will work
Apply a little bit of soap around the new cartridge to help it slide in easier. Push it all the way in and make sure it is seated. Re-install the clip (you should have received a new clip with the replacement cartridge)
Turn the water back on a check for leaks
If OK, reinstall the knob screw, and cap.

I have a Delta single handled fixure that goes up and down in my shower. It is squeaking. It is getting harder to turn off. How do I fix this. It is similar to Model No.142913. It is about 8 years old.


There is a replacement cartridge for the valve. It is not expensive. ($20-$30) Lowes You need to see if there are shut-off valves on the inlet ports of the valve (behind bath wall cover-plate), they look like two flat-head screws usually on lower side of valve. If these shut offs are not present, you may have to shut-off house main. These valves are very reliable and typically an easy fix!
I hope this helps.

Turned on a triton trance electric shower it was working ok then it stopped coming out of the shower head and coming out of the overflow pipe at the bottom of the shower unit


The overflow pipe is a pressure relief device which is a small rubber ball that get's ejected when the water pressure inside the shower is too high. You will need to get a spare part to replace this. These generally operate because the showerhose is in poor condition and has collapsed internally, or the showerhead has become clogged up so check these things first.
Good luck.

Danze control valves producing loud water hammer


It sounds like your flow diverter isn't closing properly. Try removing the flow restrictors from the shower nozzle and see if that helps.

Moen single handle valve tub/shower


The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.
