Question about Price Pfister 42-YP0E Ashfield Single Control Lavatory Faucet With Pop-Up

1 Answer

The hot water side of my 42 ashfield faucet does not flow. It is only 2 years old and I clearly remember having more than a trickle of hot water. How do I repair this. The hot water valve under the sink is completely open. There doesn't appear to be any kinks in the line. I find this very odd since I have double sinks and both faucets are doing the same thing. Plenty of cold water . The volume from the half way point changes when I am trying to get hot water.

With posi-temp cartridges, if one supply of water, hot or cold, is interrupted, the cartridge automatically restricts the flow of the other water source. This is to prevent you from getting scalded if the pressure on the cold side drops because of a toilet being flushed or any other uses of cold water. The cartridge will only allow cold water to flow through if there is hot water to balance it out. If you restore hot water to the faucet, it will operate properly.

You have already checked the two obvious things now make sure the two supply lines from the shut off valves are not kinked or turned it such away as to close off the water flow. If that is ok then there may be some debris in the internal filter screens.

Keep in mind that this faucet design will not put water out at a high pressure if it did it would splash all over the place.

Hot water side of a 42 ashfield faucet allows very little water flow. I think it is stopped up, It stop when I change a hot water heater


You will need to take the faucet apart and clean it out. If the faucet is a few years old I would just replace the cartridges and be done with it.
When the water heater was replaced the lime build up in the piping was dislodged and I bet the faucet you are having a problem with was the first faucet used after the new water heater was installed.

I have the same problem with my Ashfield faucet.
I am going to contact Price Pfister and try to get a new 'cartridge'.

On another note, my Ashfield towel rings are also broken. The connection where the two pieces meet is so weak it cannot handle daily use. I am going to bring this up with Pfister as well.

It doesn't seem like Price Pfister has very good products.

Just purchased the Price Pfister 42-YP. The hot water has limited water - just a trickle. What can i do to adjust?


Hi, David pressuming the water flow was good before you put in this new tap, then other than a problem with the tap! have you checked if you have an isolater valve on the pipe work under the unit, if so check that it is fully opened?
Thanks Paul.

Valve in Delta faucet closes as water warms up


Yes, you are on the right track, but Deltas use a fancier kit inside them. It is quite a bit pricier than an O ring, but will solve the problem. It is not hard to install at all.
