Add some heat to it with a hair dryer (no flame) and if you have some vinegar put a drop or two in the area where you removed the set screw after you have heated it up (not hot enough that it will melt anything wait 20 min or so and heat it again and it should come right off.

Rock it from side to side and pull very hard. Make sure you have the set screw completely removed. After years of use soap gets down inside the handle and around the shaft and can make them very difficult to remove. It will come off if you pull hard enough. You may even have to pry on each side a little to get it off.

How to remove handles


I have extracted the legend of figure 5B of the installation instruction here for your reference:

Remove handle from the faucet by loosening set screw (1) and pulling off handle. Once handle is removed, loosen set screw (2) from the bottom of the handle, remove accent (3), replace with new accent, tighten set screw (2), replace handle on faucet and tighten set screw (1).
Here is the link for the installation instruction:

I have Delta Series 1400 Solid Handle and after taking the tension screw out I can't get the handle off. What do I need to do.


There is a set screw under the handle. You will need an allen wrench (hex head) to remove the set screw. Once you remove the set screw, use force to pull the handle away from the shower wall. If it feels stuck use some force alternating between pushing and pulling (rocking motion). I am including a picture in an exploded view so you can see how it assembles and disassembles for your convenience if you need it. Also if you need to replace any parts for the faucet, the part numbers are designated for easy replacement. I hope this helps and good luck!
