So, what am I doing wrong here? I am replacing leaky valve stems in a
tenants shower, and when they turn open or closed, they keep spinning. The
old ones stop at full open or closed.
I believe that these are cartridge stems, but I am not 100% positive.
I have tried installing them half open, fully open, and fully closed, and
still I can't make them stop spinning. The old ones I can install any
fashion I want, and they will stop at the appropriate places. I also tried
oiling the new ones, to reduce resitance that might be making the "closer"
pull towards the handle, as oppsed to vice versa.
I have compared old with new and they are identical.
Thanks for any input on this, I know it's plumbing 101.
