In response to Re: Help - shower/tub faucet issues
: I just bought a new (to me) 30 year old home and it sailed through the inspection. However, on the first morning in the home, the shower wouldn't work. The diverter doesn't divert the water to the shower head. Its stuck and stuck good. I removed the handle and tried to turn the valve with pliers but no luck. Also, when I turn on the cold water, water comes out around the hot water handle. Ideas? Suggestions?

We usually replace faulty diverters instead of trying to repair them. Your faucet stem packings need to be tightened or replaced.LonnythePlumber
