I was late winterizing and my shower valves cracked. It didn't seem so bad because it was just the "caps" that cracked. (See pics). I glued those and all seemed great. Now I can't get the valve stems in the right way. No matter how I have them in.....the shower stays on.!!There are two springs too. Not sure where they go.
anyone have experience with this? I don't want to replace the whole assembly If I can avoid it, the access panel is too small which makes it a bigger job then I need right now. .....in leaving for Fla. in 8 days!
Where are the valve seats? They are just neoprene or buna plunger style - go in first. Then the spring with larger diameter end against the valve. Then the valve. Be conscious of valve position. If you can't find these, a new shower faucet is $11 and you could borrow parts from it.
The valve seats were inside the valve body. Although I think I might have had them in there backward. I see now that the spring goes "in"them not just up against them. Them I think my valve position as it relates to the "valve stops" off. I'll give it another try.
If it's still a no go I already have the new faucet.....I'm just trying to save a little time.
