No flow from Delta Monitor 1400 faucet after reinstallation


Hey,
I've been struggling with my tub/shower faucet for a couple weeks now and was hoping someone could solve this frustrating problem. I took apart my Delta Monitor 1400 faucet because we've been losing water pressure in just the tub of our upstairs bathroom; there has been no change with the toilet or the sink. After finding some rust or copper bits on the hot water side and flushing the lines, I put the cartridge back in, put the bonnet nut back on. Now, when I turn on the water back on, there is only a very small trickle. I have taken the entire cartridge, cap assembly, and lower housing unit apart and put it back together. I even ordered an entirely new cartridge from Delta. I'm still getting no flow. Any ideas what's wrong?
Thanks,
Becky

Since you say you flushed the lines, which was what I was going to suggest, I have to believe you have something installed not quite right. I think that monitor cartridge has a hot and a cold side, right? and does it have those o-rings on the end that fits into the valve body? I would take it apart, flush it again, making sure you are getting plenty of water, then look in the valve body for stuck rubber pieces, etc. Then reassemble. Good Luck!

The o-rings came off with the cartridge on both the hot and cold. As for things not being installed correctly, I went by the Delta spec sheet, my handy man dad has taken it out and put it back in, as has another handyman friend. We are all perplexed, because on paper, it should be working. But I'll try flushing it again, just in case.

Turned the H2O off, took cartridge out, turned water back on and let it run for a bit.

Screen in the aerator I think was meant. Most aerators have a screen.

Sorry, missed the bit about tub spout. Is it possible to install the cartridge 90 or 180 degrees off so that the ports aren't aligned with water supply ports in the base?

I am having a similar problem after replacing the cartridge on a Delta 1700 Shower Valve... did you ever solve your problem, maybe I have the same issue... in my case I suspect some blockage in the hot water side feed line... previously, the hot water core in the furnace was replaced and I think maybe some scale got into the hot side of the core valve body... I plan to probe the hot side with a soft wire to see if anything is in there, but if you found a solution, I would be interested to hear it....
