Question about American Standard Cambridge 5 Ft. x 32" Right-hand Drain Whirpool Tub, Whit
Stopper keeps popping up. drain stopper will not stay down. cannot take bath without it. American standard tub. drain model #1599.205.020
Unscrew it (turn left/counterclockwise), thoroughly clean it, lubricate it with liquid dish soap, screw it back in. If it still doesn't work, best bet is to get a replacement.
If, when you remove it, you find the gasket around the bottom is torn, probably ought to replace it and forego the cleaning step.

Chances are that the drain assembly was not part of the tub but a 'generic' plumbing part. Is this pop up drain the type that you push down and it clicks closed and push down and then it pops up? It unscrews from the drain fitting and you can get a replacement at a big box store. A better pop up replacement is one called a Rapid-fit. It drains faster.

The stoper assembly has linkage and a plumb bob aparatus
Step 1 remove the 2 screws that hold the chrome overflow cover,
Step 2 you will see a wire connected to the up and sown handle
Step 3 you should be able to fish out the linkage which will have a bumb bob attached
mae sure this is all connected if not reattach if you do not see the blumb bob reach your fingers in and grab the wire
Step 4 inspect the linkage the first link is about 3 inches from chrome cove, second is about 8 inches down and final is at the bob itself bob is pointed and slides in by gravity
If this all looks ok then fish it down , put chrome cover on and move lever up and down ( you should see the stopper mve up and down
Step 5 If stopper is not in just insrt in drain hole and move the lver flow lever up and down and drain should work sometimes the stoper does not go up or down far enough there could be an adjustment on the linkage to reduce or increase the length of the linkage

Hi, looking at this straight on, you will see 2 screws going through the lever plug section. What it looks like on the inside, is a long brass rod connected to another brass rod with a adjustable section on it and a brass looking piston at the end. If you remove the 2 screws, grab hold of the lever and chrome plate and pull straight out and up to remove the assembly.No worry, nothing will fall in as it is all one piece. You can try cleaning the lever section up and add some wd-40 to it and this may help some. It sounds to me like the lever ball joint is worn out, so it is best replaced. Home Depot has them for under $20.00. Take the old one with you and if need be you can adjust the new one to the same length as the old one. It will keep hanging up on you believe me. Good Luck,
