SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

The handle has build up in it but should come off eventually. Sounds like a dry o-ring seal. You can purchase a kit for your model without having to replace the whole unit.

I just installed abrand new single handle delta shower faucet and the water does not get hot enough.


Many single-handle shower mixers have a hot limit, usually limiting the throw of the handle. You could go to the mfg's website (www.deltafaucet.com) & find instructions for adjusting it. Or, if you're handy, you could take off the handle & have a look; it shouldn't be too hard to see what's stopping the handle from turning more towards the hot side. Make changes in small increments & remember where you started.

The swing mixer handle has become very stiff. how do i get it off to clean it/


The first solution is of course correct. However I found it almost impossible to remove the spout assembly. It was very stiff and it was difficult to get any leverage to force it off without damaging the finish to the tap as a whole or damaging the sink.

What I found was that if you poured boiling water over the tap/faucet it eased the stiffness and having done this several times - ie about 5 kettle loads of hot water, I managed to remove the spout. It helps if you reconnect the hose directly to the outlet under the sink (ie not via the faucet). THis allows you to run cold water through the tap whilst pourung boiling water over the outside of the tap. The cold water shrinks the copper/brass components whilst the hot water expands the spout assembly.
Once off, it is possible to clean the inside of the assembly to remove corrosion or calcium deposits to say nothing of old "O" rings.

I also used a kettle descaler between dousing with boiling water in the hope that some of it would seep down within the assembly.

It took me three attempts to do this. I was almost going to spend UK pounds 430 or US dollars 670 and buy a new unit. So do not give up and I hope this helps.
It swings backward and forward now perfectly.

Handle is stiff and leaking at base. It appears I need a cartridge replacement. How do I access the cartridge? Thanks.....Keith


Moen products almost all have a lifetime warranty.  I know they have a website because I queried & found a phone number called them & got replacement guts for my unit for about $8.00, Quality counts in my book!

The faucet handle has become stiff to turn off and on, and to switch between cold and hot. I have loosened the screw with an Allen key, but cannot remove handle.
