You will need to replace the o rings. Buy the proper kit from your local hardware store. Turn the water off. Remove the handle (screw under top cap0 and the spout will slide up and off. Replace o rings and lube them with plumbers grease or Vaseline.

My american standard model 4040 faucet is leaking at the base of the spout.


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.

When dishwasher is running, water leaks under base of our American Standard Colony model soft two-handle kitchen faucet into cabinet beneath sink


Is there an air gap next to the faucet that is leaking. If so, it is probably clogged. Pull the cap off of it and clean it out. This is what it may look like before you take the cap off.

I have an american standard pullout disc faucet which is leaking. I replaced the disk. Now it is leaking more than befoe from the base. What should I do? Is it the o seal at the bottom? chuck


Chuck,
Definitely change the O ring, and ensure the disc is installed properly, as well as ensure there is no debris on the disc. It sounds like the O ring was torn during the first procedure. Good Luck.

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,
