Default Pot filler problem

I have the pot filler above the sink, shown in the attached images. I believe it's an older model Delta if that matters.

Anyways, there are two knobs to turn, one to fill the pot filler faucet with water, and one knob to release the water from the pot filler into a pot on the stove.

It's this second knob, the one that releases water from the pot filler, that is problematic. When I turn that, the whole device turns, and it shoots water at me, instead of straight down into the pot. It didn't used to do this. I've had it about a year and a half.

I took it apart, and all looks normal (to me). Any guess why the knob turns the entire assembly, not just the end piece?

Thank you!

I never have a problem with the guy that fills my pot orders.




Seriously though, just email delta and if they are no help replace the whole thing with a t&s brass one.
