Question about American Standard Bath Faucet Ceramix 2000.500 002 Chrome Bath/Shower Fauce...

1 Answer

Slow and nonexistent water flow.

I have an American Standard 6310 series combi faucet in my kitchen. I noticed the water flow was slow, so I removed the hot water supply and cleaned out the mineral deposits. Put it back together and then had no water. There is water above the manifold, but when you put the cartridge on, no water. Called American Standard--they said I needed a new cartridge. 15 days later new one appears and I installed. First a slow drip of water and then nothing again. What now?

Start by removing the spray head from the hose. Pull the spray head out and with a channel lock pliers unthread connection between the spray head and hose. BE CAREFUL not to let the hose fall back down into the faucet. With the hose directed down toward the sink test for volume by turning on the faucet. If you get a nice volume the problem is in the spray head. This is usually the case. Put the spray head back on then remove the aerator. It's the screen where the water comes out of the spray head. Clean out the assembly ( 3-4 parts). Reassemble and test.

Good luck, Phil

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.

We have a problem with the cold water flow as it just trickle out. The hot water flow is fine. We have the Combi Faucet 6310 series


I would check take apart the cold flex connector and check the flow when running water into a bucket, if it is wimpy then there is a blockage in the angle stop or the flex connector. If it is good you will need to take the cartridge out, check for signs of debris and possibly replace it

Slow flow, spray will not stay on.


you need pressure to make the spray stay on so maybe check the valve under the sink to see if it has turn almost off, that happen when the pull out nozzle gets returned and the heavy weight on the hose hits the hose

Apparent flow blockage


I would turn off the water then check to make sure you have good flow up to the faucet itself. If you do then there might be a proplem with the cartridge or diverter. does it have a sprayer? If it has a sprayer head for the spout of the faucet then there will be what the call a check valve inside the spray head itself that canbe removed with a skinny screwdriver or something thin and long
