Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet

1 Answer

How do I turn the shower on? I just moved into a place that has a Delta series 1400 Monitor shower handle, a smooth faucet, and NO mechanism whatsoever that I can see for switching from bath to shower. Is there a special trick I can use to activate the shower?

There should be a dirverter on the tub spout. It will be either a knob to pull up or a ring to pull down on and hold untill the water comes out the shower head.

If there is no dirverter go buy a new tub spout with one.. The prior owners may have installed the wrong spout.

I believe the older ones were held on by center threaded on piece, after you remove the handle. It's threaded on behind the handle, round cover over stem. Turn counterclockwise to remove it, then plate should come off.

How do you remove cartridge from 1400 series delta shower valve


Take off the handle and the cover piece. There is a large nut holding the cartridge in. Be careful taking it off so you do not twist the cartridge socket off the rest of the valve.

Delta Series 1400 shower faucet, no or very little water out of the cold side of the faucet. Plenty of hot water. What can I do to fix this?


Remove the handle by opening the little red/blue cap. Use a hex key to remove the handle. Remove the tope ring holding in the cartridge in. Take out the cartridge and you will most likely see particles blocking it. make sure you use a little valve lube or vasline on the seals before you put it back in so you will have smooth operation. If that doesnt cure it just replace the cartridge at lowes or home depot and bring the old one.

How to turn on shower head of Delta monitor


I'm at my cousin's place and he has a delta monitor. Similar to what you guys are talking about.

To turn on the shower, I had to pull down on the faucet head, not the shower head.

To turn off the shower, I had to push the faucet head back up.

Hope this helps anybody out.

Sorry Delta 1300 and 1400 series valves do not have a volume control. Kinda odd but that is how they are made.
