HELLO- Screw could very well be stripped,gentley try to pull on the handle as you turn the screw counter clockwise, if you are able to get the screw out and handle will not come off, chances are you will need to get a handle puller Home depot / local plumbing shop or hardware store. goodluck

You can use any high speed drill bit and drill the set screw out, it should be chrome plated brass, so, it will be soft. If you get your sizing right, maybe, just over the size of hex in set screw, you may be able to save the handle and get the rest of the set screw out. You could also try an "easy out" that will fit in the shole you drill to extract the set screw.

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!

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.

hi roger,

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