    Help,

    Right handle is frozen on this bathroom faucet. Two plumbers have said it cannot be repaired. Where can I buy another set, another handle assemble, or where can I send it to get professionally repaired? Help! Mike

    Most likely it's a Delta. In the 80s these faucet were sold under a different name, a subsidiary that has been shut down since then. Not worth the effort, even when Delta can supply you with free parts.

    Call a "real plumber" and he will probably be able to "professionally repair" it. Until we see the parts under the handles we cannot even begin to tell you who made it.

    HJ, Thanks for the advice. I am not sure who is good in my area (Southern California) and who to trust. Is there anyway I can send the part to you for repair? I am willing to pay your charge and appreciate your expert help. Thanks, Mike.

    p.s. you provide a wonderful service here

    If you have a picture of the part, that might be enough to identify it. More than likely it is not something that can be "repaired" but rather replaced, which should be no big deal, unless it is a company that failed and no one is making parts for it, but that is somewhat rare.
