All the faucets except my shower have hot water why doesn't my shower have hot water


your video doesn't show much of your shower for very long, but at a guess i'd say you have separate hot cold taps, in which case always turn on hot first then carefully turn on cold to ensure there's no issue with water pressure. if there no hot water running at all the hot water valve is faulty

The cold water on my Delta double hand faucet is leaking. I replaced the spring and rubber seat. when I put it back together, i can not turn the water off with the handle. I took the stem assembly out...


I believe they go in one way ,, but I've seen some that are 180 degrees out, which would make it so the water won't shut off, also with delta and moen,, add some plumbers grease to the o rings and faucet washers, so they don't stick when replacing,

Delta single lever faucet leakingafter bing shut off.


Will need to get delta faucet rebuild kit. Available at home depot, lowes or hardware store. It consists of valve stem seals & springs. The larger kit will contain ball assembly. Turn off water to faucet. Unscrew handle via set screw under plastic cap. Unthread cap over ball assembly. Pry out valve seals & springs. Reverse procedure to install.

No cold water coming out of bath/shower, only really hot water


Is it a Delta brand, single handle valve? If so, chances are you need a new "stem" and can be purchased at any plumbing suply store or home store. You will need to shut the water off to the house to do this (unless you are certain you know where the shutoffs are). Good luck

Installed a new 88976 handle but still have a leak


replacing just the handle cannot fix the leak and common sense should tell you that.... try turning off the water to the diverter (thru access panel on opposit wall or main water valve for the home) and then replacing the stem or cartridge inside the diverter -- this is what controls water temp, pressure, and is responsible for any leaks you may have...

Leaking water from tub spout


First you should obtain a parts brake-down instruction sheet, contained within the owners manual or downloaded from the manufactures website. With that you will have a detailed description of the removal and re-installation of that units cartridge, which upon removal you may see a build up of debris at the inlet ports or a ruptured O-ring in need of replacement.

Before any dis-assembly, turn off the hot and cold supply to the unit.

Good luck
