American standard bath tub faucet no hot water

I have an older American Standard bathtub/shower faucet that you pull out to turn on the water, left for hot, right for cold. It has not been used for at least a decade and no longer gives you any hot water (yes, hot water goes to the adjacent sink). Does anyone know how to adjust the hot water coming in? Also, I'm stuck at even getting the handle off. After removing the holding screw, pulling only turns on the water. Is it likely just really really stuck?

SOURCE: just installed shower and faucet in bath tub when

Verify the height from the shower valve to the Shower head, the instructions specify the correct distance if it is too short the pressure could be getting up to the shower head.

Perhaps the water pressure it too high at the valve not allowing all the water down the faucet outlet, there are set screws on the sides of the shower valve to adjust the water allowed in the mixing chamber.

Something is restricting the water flow to the faucet, creating enough pressure to send some of the ater supply up to the shower.

I hope some of these ideas help

If it has a side spray the diverter might be stuck. try flicking the spray handle on and off.

Hi,

You didn't describe the problem you're having. I'm giving you a website that describes how to get to the diverter and clean it up, replace the washer, etc. You probably will find this site quite useful for most of your household replairs.
Here it is: http://www.ehow.com/how_5067727_repair-american-standard-bathtub-faucet.html

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Cold water handle on my American Standard cold water control just spins around with out turning on the water


There is an adapter from the faucet stem to the handle. A small gray plastic faucet part that frequently causes problems for many owners. You will need to call American Standard and ask for a new handle stem connector. The faucet came with a limited lifetime warranty and the part should be free. While you are getting one, you might as well get another for the other handle. American Standard's phone number is 1-800-442-1902.

Slow and nonexistent water flow.


Start by removing the spray head from the hose. Pull the spray head out and with a channel lock pliers unthread connection between the spray head and hose. BE CAREFUL not to let the hose fall back down into the faucet. With the hose directed down toward the sink test for volume by turning on the faucet. If you get a nice volume the problem is in the spray head. This is usually the case. Put the spray head back on then remove the aerator. It's the screen where the water comes out of the spray head. Clean out the assembly ( 3-4 parts). Reassemble and test.

Good luck, Phil

American Standard Cadet 2-handle tub & shower set-Model#3275 - low pressure output


When you installed the new tub faucet you probably turned off the water to that faucet of even the whole house. IF IT IS AN OLDER HOUSE, TURNING THE WATER OFF AND BACK ON CAN LOOSEN SOME DEBRIS IN THE WATER LINES THAT CAN FIND THEIR WAY TO YOUR NEW FAUCET. If there is a screen at the end of the water outlet it can be clogged with gunk. Uncrew the screen on the water outlet and clean. You may also want to flush out the hot and cold outlets by turning the water off, removing the cartigages and slowly let water flush them out. Then reassemble. Also when you have the tub handles out you can turn the hot and cold supply valves off and on a few times to loosen more debris if it exsists........Joe
