American Standard kitchen fawcett

I just installed a new kitchen fawcett. Whenever I turn the water on quickly, there is a knocking sound under the sink. Almost sounds like air in the line. When I turn the water on slowly, it is fine. Any solutions?

    Does it happen when you shut the water off as well?

    Is is a rhythmic knocking? Like a Tic....Tic.... Tic.

    Can you located the pipe it's coming from or is it in the wall?

Bleed the air from the sprayer hose by turning it on until water comes out. The knocking noise will be gone after you do this.

It could be air if you recently had the water off at the main and let the pipes drain, but this would go away after a short while. It is most likely either a feed line from the wall to the faucet flexing when the pressure and hitting something under the sink or a water line in the wall that may have not been strapped properly to the stud when installed. They bounce around sometimes if not secured. Hopefully the feed line as the second is a bit more work to correct.

Good Luck

I just installed an American Standard easy touch faucet 6310F. The pressure is very low. Anybody know what the problem may be?


At the base of the handle there is a flow regulating check valve. Shut off water supply and unscrew handle and look for debris. Many times the washers break down on the shutoffs under the sink and release "crumbs", these usually block aerators and sometimes the cartridges on certain faucets. Hope this was helpful.

It says you have a problem with the hot water. First thing to do is to turn the hot water supply valve under the sink off, and then remove the line from the valve to the faucet at the valve. Then put a bucket underneath the valve and turn it on (carefully). If you don't get any flow, then the problem is in the valve or the pipes supplying the faucet. If you get flow there, then the problem is in the supply line or possibly at the faucet.

Low water pressure


Remove the spray head and point the hose into the sink drain. Turn the faucet on. If you have good pressure, cal American Standard for a free replacement spray head.
If you still have low water pressure without the spray head, ask them for a new faucet cartridge.
After replacing the faucet cartridge, if you still have low water pressure you will need to ask for a new faucet, possibly free if yours is still under warranty.

I had the same problem. You need a "diverter" (044264-0070A). It's available directly from American Standard at no charge. Lifetime guarantee! Phone: 1-800-442-1902.

I just installed an american standard faucet Molel# 2808.222 Called SPREAD LAVATORY FAUCETS . The water does not come out. can you please help me?


Silly question, but did you turn the shut offs back on after installing? If so, the aerator is probably clogged (the screen on the faucet). Unscrew it and clean it out. Good luck

Installed new faucet worked then all water stopped


If it has a side spray the diverter might be stuck. try flicking the spray handle on and off.

American standard kitchen faucet roars when hot water turned on


Not the aerator at all as this part would act the same if hot or cold.

Have you checked the shut-off valves under the sink? Sometimes just turning them a bit in either direction will solve that problem (will only be the case if it have been shut off at the valve recently).

Also, maybe the supply line on the hot side have been kinked?

Hope this helps

We are getting a metallic taste and smell


The metalic taste is coming from the the new faucet

I would call American Standard and ask them if they have any complaints for this particular model

I would run hot water through the faucet for 5 minute intervals

If it persists I would take it back and demand a refund or cal AS and demand a refund or replacement model

I am sure the local news would like to report something like this
