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.

SOURCE: 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,
Harvey your Master Plumber

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.

How long have you had this? is everythign tight? check underneath the sink to ensure all connections are tight. The spout may have came loose, and it may not be able to be fixed, may need to be replaced.
