Please help! The unit already had an old existing sprayer that was malfunctioning. The old one unscrewed from inside a fixture. The new is a different size and it appears to fit over not inward. Do I need to convert it or what converter do I need. There also a nut that I can take off but it still does not fit.

Re: replacement kitchen sink sprayer will not fit
It might be easier just to take the sprayer back and get the corrct brand to fit your faucet. The other option is to takke the two missmatched pieces to the hardwareor plumbing supply house and let them match us the transition fitting.

Learn how to safely and correctly replace a kitchen sink sprayhose. ... How to Connect a Sink Sprayer : Home Sweet Home Repair - Duration: ...
With your faucet in the off position pull the sprayer out. Unscrew the hose that connects to the sprayer. This lets you take the sprayer to someplace where you can sit down. The front of the sprayer where the water comes out unscrews as well. You may need to use a nonslip mat or a piece of rubber but you can undo this by hand. Once you have this off a small piece (airator) can come out that helps control water flow into a steady stream instead of the way water comes out of a garden hose with no nozzle. form here you'll be able to see how the old button fits into the sprayer, pop it out and replace with the new one. Assemble in reverse.
Are we concerned about the distance between the bottom of the sink and the bottom of the cabinet?
I have installed a lot of disposals on under-mount sinks and I have found the the Badger company has a 1/3 hp unit that is quite short. It may seem a bit small but we need to remember that disposals are not made to chop wood.......1/3 is plenty strong for a person who uses their head when shoving food sown it. Their 1/2 hp unit might also work.
They are available at Lowes and Home Depot for around $60.
First off I would put this issue at the top of my to do list because the laminate flooring will not hold up at all with a constant water bath. That being said, turn off the water to this faucet and remove the entire faucet. Take it to a hardware store or hardware department of a box store and see if the broken part can be replaced. If yes, good. If no, replace the faucet as this is a lot cheaper than replacing the laminate floor. Good luck
