  •  ah ha...I think I know the one... (3+ / 0-)

    the handle only rotates..??..not swivels up and down...and side to is not the best quality...and that is one of their cheaper.

    the thing with all faucets and valves...they are made to repair without replacement.

    now a cheap sink faucet is often easier to replace...a shower valve not so much...involves opening up a wall...not too bad if your shower backs up to a closet...but if an exterior wall you must open the hole bigger in the shower and they have special plates to cover.

    you bought your house built...but I always advise on a high quality valve...and nothing exotic...they are too hard to replace.

    you could always hire a plumber to repair...they are used to dealing with the frustration.

    let me know if you want to continue and try to repair...first suggestion...get new springs.
