Before jumping to the repairing tutorial, let us understand what all basic parts a shower faucet is composed of. There are around 6 parts which you will need to take out for faucet repair. The top part called the cap is a disc and then there is a small handle screw. These two parts are inside the handle of the faucet. Under this is the stem which has threads attached to it. The stem is a long cylindrical shaped body, which attaches to the upper faucet and bottom faucet parts together. Then there is a small hollow disc attached to the stem, which is just like a nut, except it is smooth and circular in shape. Then finally at the bottom end is the washer screw. Now that you understand the basic structure of the shower faucet, it is time to take out these parts.
Clean the garbage disposal by putting a few tablespoons of baking soda down the drain followed by 3 ice cubes. Then turn on the garbage disposal and run the hot water while it works.
The new gasket ring needs to be placed inside the shower head. Take the existing handle or a new one, and fix it back in position by inserting the retaining screw on the handle. Tighten the screw and put back the handle cover.
Lastly, you need to fix the handle cap back onto the handle in its position. Keep the cap on the handle's center and press it down slowly until you hear a clicking sound.
