If it's the one I'm thinking of, remove cap in center, and remove Philips screw, and pull handle off. If you have the hex shaped piece still on the stem, look at underside for an Allen key, set screw and tighten it, and put handle back on.

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.

The handle bar stem on my sons mongoose is loose. I have tried to tighten the screw that connects to the stem but it doesnt seem to be stopping the bars from being shaky?


Your handle bars are most likely stripped or the mongoose head is stripped or a combination of both. Unscrew the bolt you just tightened and take the handle bars off to inspect the little splined area, if smooth than handle bars need to be replaced. The neck should also have those little lines horizontally this area should not be smooth. You can try to wirebrush the area and out it back together, see if that works or the cheapest thing to replace would be the handle bars. When I was a kid I would pin my handle bars so they would not move cause we did a lot of jumping of our bikes and had a lot of stripped handle bars. Mongoose is a good stem I would lean towards new bars. Good Luck...

945 Kitchen Bridge Faucet - Swivel Spout, 9-1/2" (no Han) Brand: Newport Brass NB945-26 Series: 900 The stem moves up and down slightly when I turn on/off the water pressure. It does not leak but...


There is a good chance that if you remove the handle there will be a retainer of some sort. The retainer's job is to keep the stem/cartridge from pushing out due to water pressure. It may be in the form of a nut or a clip. Be careful removing the handle because if the retainer is completely disengaged then the stem/cartridge may shoot up. Turn the hot and cold water off at the valves located under the sink and relieve the pressure by turning the faucet on. If it's a loose nut it will spin freely. Tighten it. If it is a clip you may need to play with the stem/cartridge to align it properly before the clip will move into place..

How to free a seized stem


If you have the type of stem that inserts into the fork (through the steerer tube), there are a couple of tricks.

1) Make sure the stem bolt is loose. but not completely free. Tap on the stem bolt with a hammer. This works if the stem wedge inside is the culprit. Wiggle back and forth and things should come free.

2) If this does not loosen things, then you will need to put some lubricant like Liquid Wrench inbetween the stem and steerer and let soak in a while. Repeat solution 1.

3) if it still does not free-up then try a little more force with the hammer and using some sort of pry bar to add leverage to work the stem loose.

4) if none of these work, you have a major problem, and if you want the stem removed you need to take the bike into a shop and have a mechanic look at it before you destroy your frame trying to take the stem out.

Good luck, seized stems can require a lot of muscle to get free, especially if they have rusted to the steerer.

The handle is loose and the screw seems to be as tight as possible. It is a Moen single handle tub set.


might be that the spacer is missing. there is a small brass spacer located between the handle and the stem. if this is missing, your handle will feel like it's loose.

Water leaking at handle when turned on


1- Hanldle may have a cap that will come off to access screw to loosen or allen screw on the handle to remove it.
First thing you can check remove handle and make sure the nut that holds stem down is not loose. You can tighten it and try this first just replace handle turn on and check for leaks.

If not please go to step 2 in removal of stem

2- Cut water off and remove handle to gain access to stem. Next remove stem by untighting nut at the base. Remove stem and replace o rings on stem about middle of it. That will stop water from leaking at the base.

Have a Moen single lever kitchen fawcet with seperate sprayer and it drips. I poped off the center cap on top of the fawcet and can see a cartridge but don't know how to remove it. It's brushed chrome.


Most MOEN single handle faucets use the same cartridge, the 1200 or 1225. If you have it apart enough to see the top there should only be a few more parts to remove to get at the stem ie the handle and cap. Once there you should see the horse shoe clip that holds the stem in. Once you slide the horse shoe clip off, the stem should be ready to go. Now sometimes these will come out easily, but most of the time they are a little tough. You can use a crescent wrench and gently turn the cartridge at the ears where the horse shoe clip was removed and this will loosen the cartridge, then you can use the handle or what ever you can grab the stem with to pull it out. FYI a lot of the home improvement stores carry a MOEN cartridge puller and they make it a lot easier. After cartridge is removed install new one and your done. DONT forget to turn off water before you begin. Hope this helps.

Kitchen taps drip and leak.I do not want to replace with new but would like to sort these problems.


dependent on the type of faucet, you need to replace (a) the washers, (b.) the spring and seals or (c.) the gasket. They all serve the same purpose. 1. turn off the water supply to the faucet. 2. double handle? (a)remove the center cap (b) then remove the screw holding the handle down (c)next unscrew the valve stem retaining nut (normally it is the one right above the faucet body). (d) pull the valve stem out, if there is a small rubber piece held down by screw remove the screw, replace the washer. if there is a rubber gasket wrapped around the stem, remove and replace it, if nothing is on the stem look into the faucet body you should see 1 or 2 small rubber pieces these are the seals the springs are right below the seals. Remove and replace springs and seals. 3. single handle? remove the handle retaining screw, normally covered by hot/cold indicator symbol, unscrew valve stem retaining nut, pull the valve stem and replace either the gasket or springs and seals.

Unican combo lock handles are loose


If the handle has been forced their is a part inside that is broken and it appears as if the handle is loose. I have priced the replacement parts and they were over 75% of  what I could purchase the whole thing for ,so I elected to purchase new and go with the direct replacment model L1000 (Lever) to make it ADA compliant at the same time.
