Question Problem with new Delta shower faucet

Hi All,
This new shower faucet from Delta I have is giving me a problem. It's the type that to switch to shower mode you pull the end of the spout where the water comes out of. We'll each time I pull it, yes the shower goes on but also water shoots out the back (against the wall) of the spout????
Has anyone heard of this happening? Is it a faulty spout?
Any help you can give would be appreciated!!!
Julie

Julie: remove the spout from the pipe and see if you can find what is wrong. The spout will either just unscrew, or if you look underneath it, there will be an allen head set screw in it. Loosen the set screw and it will slide off. Check the o-rings, as it sounds as if one is loose or non existent.

Larry,
The O rings are there in perfect condition. It's brand spanking new. I think I'll just take it back and get them to replace with new one.
Thanks anyhow.
