1-For a metal lever handle it will have a allen head screw at the base of the lever to remove with a 1/8" allen wrench. If you can not see screw it may have a cap covering it to remove.

2-To remove plastic acrylic caps remove plastic cap to acess screw to remove handle.

Once handle is off remember the location of the dial to adjust it counter clockwise to increase hot water flow. Slide indicator dial back on stem and reposition about a 1/4" turn counter clockwise and recheck for change in temperature.

If you need any more help refer to the link provided for a digram of faucet. Go to parts down load and view faucet parts view. I hope this will be helpful in solving your issue.

MY DELTA SCALD GUARD FAUCET WILL NOT TURN OFF HOW DO I REPAIR


When a Delta Scald Guard will not turn off, more than likely it is because the seats have worn out. Turn off the water supply and open any faucets lower stream of the shower unit. Using an allen key, locate the set c=screw in the handle and back it out. Next,Remove the Phillips screw holding the handle in place.Next turn the retaining ring counter clockwise and pull the catridge out of the faucet.Some catridges have two parts front and back. Behind the back part id two small rubber washers called seats and two springs. Install two new seats and springs and everything else in reverse order.

Not hot water should not exceed 120 degrees. If it does it will continue to melt the seats.

How do you adjust the scald guard, water needs to be hotter?


Remove the handle and it will be a dial to remove and reinsert maybe a 1/4 turn counter clockwise to increae hot. just remember where you started at and adjust accordingly. Just put handle on turn on and see if it's at desired temp.

It should be a dial that may look like a little gear that will slide off and allow you to adjust tep.

Moen T910 Kingsley two handle, whirlpool tub faucet. The hot water handle only puts out lukewarm water. The water heater is turned up and all the other faucets in the house put out scalding hot water.


if you remove the hot water handle on the faucet you can adjust the stop. if it is a newer faucet it has a built in scold guard. the directions should tell you which direction to move the stop to get hotter water

Water is warm not hot. How do i adjust the scorch guard?


Here is the breakdown of the model number shown:

Delta T13420


The way to adjust the temperature is by this:

  1. Get a pocket thermometer.
  2. Turn on the water to the hottest setting.
  3. Remove handle.
  4. Check the temperature with the thermometer. (adjust to your liking, scald begins above 100 f)
  5. Set temperature by removing and rotating the plastic piece just below the handle left or right until the desired temperature is achieved.
  6. Replace handle.
This should do it.

Hope this helps and please rate this!
