SOURCE: I have an american standard bathroom faucet.

First, turn off the water supply under the sink. Next, put the faucet lever in the up position, no water should be coming out. While in the up position turn slowly while looking at the underside of the handle and you should be able to find a set screw. It will probable be an "allen head" type and you will need and allen head wrench to loosen it. An allen head looks like a hex shape, 6 sided I believe and is rod shaped. If you don't have one they come in sets at your local hardeware.

SOURCE: I have an American Standard single handle faucet

What is likely happening is a small piece of sediment has become lodged in either the mixing valve or in the aerator.

Begin with the easiest part first. The aerator is the threaded attachment from which the water comes out of the faucet. Remove the aerator from the faucet and run the tap without it installed. If the flow rate is good either clean or replace the aerator.

If this was not the problem then the solution becomes much trickier because the obstruction is likely in one of the lines coming into the faucet or in the body of the faucet called the mixing valve. This is where the hot and cold water mix inside the faucet.

Our next step is to create negative pressure inside the faucet in an attempt to remove the buildup restricting the flow.

If you don't have shut off valves under the sink you will need to shut off the water supply to the home, remove the faucet from the vanity/sink and perform the following procedure.

Shut the hot and cold water off underneath the sink and remove the supply lines at the shut off valves but leave them connected to the faucet. You will need to purchase two adapters for the aerator that will allow you to connect a garden hose from your closest water supply (kitchen sink) to the vanity faucet. You can find these at your local hardware store. You will also need a pail under the vanity to catch the water coming out of the vanity faucet supply lines. Connect the garden hose from an active water supply to the vanity faucet. With someones help have them turn the water supply on which will then run backwards through the vanity faucet and into the pail underneath the vanity. Be sure to open the vanity faucet taps to full so that water will run through the faucet. This should dislodge the obstruction.

How do remove the screen on an American standard bathroom faucet?


Simply unscrew the end of the tap where the screen is. Some faucet models have a small hole just above the screen where you insert a pin that locks the parts together so they can be unscrewed in the counterclock rotation.

I think you might need a handle remover tool. It looks like two "L"'s facing each other with a long screw going through the top of the two L's . With a T handle at the top. The two L's go up under the bottom of the faucet handle, and the long screw fits into the screw hole for the faucet handle. A dozen turns or so and the handle pops off the valve stem. Cost about 10-15 dollars at any hardware store. hope this helps.

Removing the faucet stems and coating them( inside and out) with plumber's silicone lubricant should solve the problem. If the stem is too corroded, you may need to replace the stem.

Cold water handle on my American Standard cold water control just spins around with out turning on the water


There is an adapter from the faucet stem to the handle. A small gray plastic faucet part that frequently causes problems for many owners. You will need to call American Standard and ask for a new handle stem connector. The faucet came with a limited lifetime warranty and the part should be free. While you are getting one, you might as well get another for the other handle. American Standard's phone number is 1-800-442-1902.

I bought a replacement Danko faucet cartridge for an american standard bathroom sink and the package said hot/cold but when I installed it on the cold side the handle turns the wrong way. How do I reverse...


Thae stem you got that said hot/cold were designed to fit old style cross handle faucets. So both hot and cold turned the same way. If the cold side you are replacing turns the opposite direction then you will need to get a cold stem. Danco does make them. Ask the retailer where you purchased the H/C stem. I hope this helps..

Replace inside stem on hot water Eljer shower faucet


Sounds like you might need a gear puller -- hardware stores would have them -- or auto parts.
Spray with contact cleaner wd-40 first, then install puller, depress ring and crank away at the puller.
