Thread: Symmons Temptrol Handle Removal ??

  1. #1

    Default Symmons Temptrol Handle Removal ??

    I have removed the end cap and the center screw on my temptrol tub/shower valve but I cannot remove the handle. I've tried the puller assembly, banging gently and not so gently with a hammer, and even tried rocking the handle with two screwdrivers underneath the fluted features.

    I guess penetrating oil would be next on my list, but I thought I'd ask if anyone has a tried and true trick for this problem.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Default Problem solved....

    Squirt plenty of GooBeGone (Citrus based rubber cement remover) in there....wait 10 mins....then squirt WD40 in ....wait 5 mins...and THEN use the Temptrol Puller. It was still a bit tough going, but it let loose right away...after being on for 19 years!
