Question about Plumbing
I tried to screw the handle back into the hole on faucet but it did stay in. Look like the screw thread at the hole on the faucet is quite worn.

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.

First ensure you have shut the water supply off at the stops- the small valves located underneath most plumbing appliances. Since we are speaking generically my comments may be a bit different depending on make and model. Most single handle faucets have a snap on cover over the base where the handle connects to the valve base. Pop this cover off and it will expose a screw that holds the handle onto the valve cartridge.You will need to remove this screw this will expose a nut/retainer that holds the cartridge in place- remove this item. Now will be able to pull the cartridge out using a pair of pliers. If the cartridge will not come out most home repair stores sell a cartridge extracting tool. This tool is a tee handle device that screws into the cartridge and has a nut that one tightens to break the cartridge free of the valve body. Some extreme cases will require some extreme pulling and snatching on the Tee handle to get the cartridge out. I personally dry the interior of the valve body a apply a thin coat of grease/lubricant to improve the service life of the new cartridge. Hope this is of assistance to you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of anymore assistance please let me know.
