American Standard 6310 flow issue

I get good flow when centered but low flow in either full cold or hot. Have had faucet for a number of years and this is a recent issue. Should I be looking to replace the cartridge and if so would a problem like this fall under the lifetime warranty?

SOURCE: kitchen faucet , reduced water flow / pressure

Hi ssam1

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know if you can fix a sudden low volume /pressure delivery problem on an American Standard model AS4205100 H7, one hole / single lever with pullout spray And is it fixable by owner?

Yes and maybe!

All plumbing systems are plauged with debrie buildup. Every time you turn on a faucet the water starts moving and will bring bits of debrie up from the water main or well. Most are small and will pass through to be caught by the screen in the aireator. Sometimes a relatively large piece comes along and dosen't make it through to the screen. It is stuck in the body of the valve.
Fixing takes a little mechanical ability.
First, turn off the water to the faucet in question. Then carefully disasemble paying close attention to the order of disasembly so you can reverse the order when putting back together. As each part is removed inspect it for that troublesome bit. I find that a little bit of wire or a paper clip is helpfull. Carefully reasemble. If the volume is still low then you missed finding that bit. Try again or call in a local pro.

SOURCE: how to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet

Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

The cold water does not come out of the faucet


What exactly do you mean by 'not come out'? Is it coming out at all and has it ever? How long has this been happening?
If it is coming out slowly or barely, but has worked properly at one point, then the problem is most likely the cartridge. It gets full of lime deposits and sediment. What I would suggest is, if you are handy around plumbing, disconnect the sprayer handle and the cold water hoses and blow them out, use canned air if you are able. Then try pouring vinegar in and run through a few times, catching the drainage in a cup or something. The vinegar breaks down the deposits and is always a good maintenance idea.If that doesn't do the trick,my second step would be to call American Standard. Their customer service is awesome! They will most likely send you a replacement or replace your entire faucet. If you just want to get it working and don;t want to take the time to do the other, you can get the replacement cartridge at most larger home improvement centers. G'luck

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

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

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

Kitchen Faucet 6310 020 White - HOT WATER SIDE NOT WORKING


The faucet cartridge is more then likely blocked and the faucet will have to be disassembled in order to unblock it.
While it is disassembled you should slowly turn on the water lines to make sure the water ways in the faucet are clear. And thoroughly check the cartridge for damage. Replace if necessary.
Replacement Cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or Big Box Stores such as Lowes or the like.
