Leaking shower faucet and spinning handle

I had a new Delta shower faucet installed recently. The faucet leaks sometimes, and the faucet handle will spin completely around if I push on it too hard. The water will go off and on depending on how far I turn the handle. Is this something I can fix myself?

Go to Delta's website and download the manual for your make and model valve. It will tell you how to rebuild it. Using the exploded view will give you an idea as to why it spins freely and whether that is normal or needs repair.
