Check that end of the valve stem remains in contact with the face of the lever when the lever is depressed and released. If the valve does not pop back out when the lever is realeased, clean as explained below.


Remove the nut holding the lever and remove the lever. Remove the valve, check the O-Ring and clean the valve with lint free cloth. Replace the valve and the lever.
