Now let us look at the Delta kitchen faucet diagram to help you with some basic information about its specific parts. Knowing every piece of your kitchen fitting will be beneficial in diagnosing the issues and repairing them in time.
The above diagram shows Delta double handle kitchen faucet parts, each with their respective name. Let’s elaborate on each of them to help you better understand the faucet structure.
First of all, if you have this faucet in your kitchen, you will probably be aware of the screw set under the lever handle. This handle is attached to the spout with the help of this screw. When you unscrew the nut, it will separate the handle. Under the handle, there is a glide ring and bonnet nut that incorporates the stem unit with the handle.
The glide ring should be perfectly sitting under the handle to make a strong connection. A stem unit is further attached to the under-the-sink pipe fittings by passing through the escutcheon plate with the help of lock nuts. Special coupling nuts are an excellent choice to join the waterline with the faucet set. The same arrangement is present in the other handle of the faucet.
Now moving to the spout, you will see the aerator on the tip of the nozzle. The aerators are present to make the water flow smooth and non-splashing. It adds air to the water and creates the stream, giving the feel of high pressure at the same time. There are certain aerator types available in the market. That allows you to customize your washing experience.
There is a high arc spout assembly in this delta faucet model under which you will see diverter assembly. This diverter helps in redirecting the water flow from spout to sprayer.
The sprayer is usually present on the side of the faucet. That includes a spray head fitted in the sink with a support assembly.
Where Can I find the Replacement Parts?
Replacement parts of the faucet are available in the market and online on the delta faucet website. There is an excellent feature available on the website that you can find any required part only by entering the model number mentioned on your faucet. If you do not know the model number, you can answer the questions that appear on the screen on their site.
Also, anybody can repair or replace such faucets with just a little help. There are quick fixes for the faucet issues. Some of them are below.
Sometimes you will notice the interruptions in its working. The clogged or damaged diverter may be the reason for the problem. Take out the high arc nozzle, and with the help of needle pliers, turn the diverter counterclockwise.
It will free the diverter from its place. Now check if it gets obstructed due to mineral deposits. You can dip it in vinegar and water solution for some time and brush off the build-up.
Similarly, if you observe the leakage around the aerator or the spout, there must be a problem with the aerator. It can get clogged because of debris and hard water mineral deposit. And makes the water difficult to flow through it.
The solution to this problem is that you have to remove the aerator with the help of an aerator removal tool. It will ensure its surface finish does not get damaged during the process. Dip it in the solution of vinegar and clean it. Reattach the aerator and check.
