SOURCE: Greetings! My Kohler kitchen faucet

Begin by shutting off the water to the faucet. Then, on the back of the handle you will find a small button. remove it with a small knife blade and underneath you will see a 1/8" set screw. Use a 1/8" inch allen wrench to remove the set screw. You can then unscrew the bonnet and remove the diverter. Take the diverter to a hardware store or plumbing supply to purchase the appropriate repair kit. goodluck.

Kohler rite temp with diverter. When the tub is turned on water leaks out the shower head. Changed the diverter didn't fix problem.


You could have a restriction in the tub spout or just too much pressure. Diverter only restricts flow to tub spout so any restrictions to the tub spout will cause water to go up to shower head.

I've taken the spout off and can see the diverter but I can't get it out of there. How do you get it out?


I have a K-R10430. I was having issues with the hand spray - poor water pressure. Kholer sent out a new diverter. After shutting off watner, when you remove the small screw in the back of the Spout, pull the spout off. Put a paper towel into the body to soak up excess water inside body. Then you need a small screw driver or small flat item to fit inside one side of the retaining ring near the opening, there is a space where you can fit something behind and carefully move the retaining ring out. Pull out with needle nose pliers then pull the diverter out with needle nose pliers. Insert new diverter with teeth facing up and push down. Insert retaining ring and make sure it slips into same **** in wall of body.

No running water from my shower


Check water lines to shower and make sure that there is no blockage or water cut off to it. Valve itself could be bad also or blockage inside it.

I f it is a tub & shower unit the diverter may be bad or stuck in place restricting water flow. Some are push button on the valve or a pull unit on tub spout to send water to shower head.
Cut water off and remove to inspect for reason not functioning correctly.
Remove shower head to inspect for blockage. The srceen may be stopped up for the shower head. Remove turn water on and see if any flow comes out shower arm.

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

No hot water coming from combi boiler ( vailliant)


I have a BAXI combi Instant 105 HE bolier. It has been very cold for the past week and the hot water is not working (though the heating is). I have cleared the overflow flu pipe of ice but this has not solved the problem. Any suggestions?

Worcester 24i combi when in shower hot water flicks on and off can hear gas igniting and extinguishing


This is lack of water flow through the diverter valve.

First have you got a good flow from any cold tap? If yes then see below

If I remember there is a pipe carrying cold mains crossing the lower front of the boiler with an in line filter usually clogged. Remove clean & replace
check also any filter in rising mains to boiler

another cause is the diverter valve itself - diaphram inside may be punctured/split
