Question about American Standard "Ceramix" Single Handle Faucet--Polished Brass Finish

How to put single handle Am. Stand. kitchen faucet back together

My father took apart my American Standard kitchen faucet to replace the O ring.  However, he didn't watch the order and there is one plastic split ring that we are not sure where it goes. It seemed to be on the base, but when we put it where we thought it went we can't get the sleeve over the inner parts.  It is causing a bigger problem than when we began.  I would like to know specifically how to put this faucet back together so that it works and doesn't leak.  I would appreciate your instructions.

Am installing a new American Standard faucet. Does it need to be lubed prior to installation?


I think American Standard probably is correct, especially if there is a history of swivel faucets seizing over time.

American Standard Kitchen Faucet Low water flow


I had the same issue with an American Standard faucet that I installed new 6 months ago. The diverter can be the issue if you have a sprayer attachment. Try unscrewing the sprayer head from the hose it's attached to. Now run the water full pressure with the hose pointed into the sink, obviously :~). After running the water for about 1 minute, connect the sprayer head back onto the hose, make certain the flat rubber washer and ring gaskets are seated in their grooves properly, and tighten until you have no water leaking from the sprayer head/hose connection. Now try the water through the faucet. If the problem was a temporary diverter issue, your pressure should be fine now. Good luck

Our American Standard kitchen faucet has become hard to swing from one side of the sink to the other. What could be causing this? Is there a bad part?


Hi! If there are no leaks from around the spout, you can remove the spout and apply silicone lube to the spout o-rings and resemble. If it is still hard to move ,replace the o-rings.

Hello
Here is a link to american standard,I could not find your model.Most lowes or home depot stores have a replacement cartridge.

Just shut off your incoming water before you take it apart.Usually you will need a pair of pliers a phillips screw driver and a set of allen wrenches.
