how to adjust faucet handle stops?


replacing the trim on a roman at faucet,including handles. I noticed when we bought the house, the handles dont come to a stop the same. that is, one stops straight out from the faucet, the other is cockeyed; like 1-degrees.

someone said to adjust the valve or stemstop. not sure how to do that?

can someone explain or supply link? thanks,

THB

hi. if there is a screw on the top, (may be under plastic cap, lift that part off with butter knife) simply undo it and lift the handle and rotate it to the next 'gear tooth' and see if that lines up. if the gears are stripped, you may have to replace the faucets.....

Try what MdangermouseM said. If that fails the only way to fix it is to access the underside and loosen and spin the whole valve.
