We have a shower/tub with an American Standard one-handle control. The
diverter control is in the valve mechanism, not in the tub spout. The
valve is a balanced pressure type, and is called "Jasmine" in the
American Standard literature. It has been installed about 3 years.
The problem is that when the button is pulled to direct water to the
shower, it won't stay in place. Instead it oscillates in and out, making
a lot of noise and providing very little water. I haven't taken it apart
yet to see if anything is wrong inside. What should I look for and what
parts am I likely to need to replace? I thought it might be a clogged
shower head, but swapping it with another one didn't cure the problem.
