SOURCE: kitchen spout leaks

I had the same problem and found that the connection where the hose connects to the pull-out faucet had come loose. Pull the faucet and hose out some and tighten. The water had been leaking back down the shaft and coming out the base.

SOURCE: Faucet leak from the connection with spout.

Return the new faucet for another one. The o-rings in the base of the spout are leaking. Either installed wrong at the factory or defective rings.

Don't fight with it, trade for a different one.

Please rate this answer and Good Luck, Phil

SOURCE: leak in the faucet handle

You'll need an allen or hexkey wrench of the apropriate sixe to remove the handle from the faucet. There should be a rubber plug with the traditional red and blue colors for hot and cold. Carefully pry the plug out. There should be a hex nut in behind the plug.Remove the hex nut and the handle should come off by pulling straight upward.After that the dome shaped nut that sits below the handle should turn off counter clockwise. Beneath this is where the seals, springs, and washers are located. Good luck

My american standard model 4040 faucet is leaking at the base of the spout.


I checked online at www.plumbingwarehouse.com/american-standard-kitchen-faucet-hamilton-4040. There is a diagram that shows a seal kit that probably needs to be replaced. The diagram is really good and shows a complete breakdown of your faucet. I hope this helps.

When dishwasher is running, water leaks under base of our American Standard Colony model soft two-handle kitchen faucet into cabinet beneath sink


Is there an air gap next to the faucet that is leaking. If so, it is probably clogged. Pull the cap off of it and clean it out. This is what it may look like before you take the cap off.

Kitchen spout leaks


Hi buffy9,

I'm Harvet the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have an American Standard two faucet in my kitchen and the base of the spout leaks at the base. How do you remove it and replace the washers?

Are we talking about an American Standard two HANDLE faucet or one of the single handle models?

Thank you,
