Default Shower Diverter Help

I have an older style shower assembly with the diverter button located beneath the on/off knob rather than on the tub faucet. The diverter does not work. I get about equal flow from the shower and the tub and the diverter does not stay in. Thinking it was a worn out diverter button, I replaced it and still it does not work properly. What am I missing? Anyone run into this before?

To be honest with you, when you say "an older style shower assembly" that DOES NOT WORK, just bite the bullet and replace it. You are probably looking at some calcium buildup within the OLD mechanism that is "before" the old diverter button that you replaced.

I agree with Deacon

it's normally cheaper and less time consuming to replace the lot

Thanks my opinion anyway
