I have an American Standard shower fixtures that when you try to turn the shower on the water continues to come out the spout instead. We have taken to using our finger to push the diverter into place so the shower will run. What would be the best possible fix for this?

Thank you

Dlucks101 - hi, you should be able to find repair parts for your diverter at the big box home improvement stores. I did one of these repairs recently myself. My diverter was at the water exit end of the tub spout. The replacement parts normally consist of a new pull knob that threads through the actual diverter...my old one was plastic and the pull knob had stripped the threads in the diverter. It only took a few minutes to remove the old one and install the new one. I hope this helps - regards! Jim D/West Point, VA
