sometimes hard to see. Might be on the underside of the spout or on the back side of the part of the spout that it connected to the faucet. OR just compare to pictures on American Standard website

Bleed the air from the sprayer hose by turning it on until water comes out. The knocking noise will be gone after you do this.

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:

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

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

Contact A/S via web site they will probably send you a new diverter free if you raise enough stink about having this problem and you would just buy another brand faucet.

Water is leaking around base of "spout" and

If you have properly replaced the diverter assembly, there is either a problem with valve or debris was left in the valve from old diverter when new diverter was installed. Disassemble diverter by pulling spout back off. remove new diverter and check valve. Cup your hand over faucet and turn cold water handle on to attempt to flush any debris left behind. Try several times then reassemble. If this doesn't do the trick then replace. Get a quality filtering system and take care of your new faucet by making sure it's dry and polished after use. You won't be replacing your fixtures as often from calcium and corrosion.

When turning on my American Standard single faucet I get a water hammer noise and my sprayer also jumps?

Replacing the spray diverter or faucet cartridge ( depending on your model) will fix the problem. Call American Standard and ask for free replacement parts.

I had the same problem. You need a "diverter" (044264-0070A). It's available directly from American Standard at no charge. Lifetime guarantee! Phone: 1-800-442-1902.

When I tgurn on the hot water on our American Standard Gooseneck Cadet with sprayer it sclunks and then shuts off. Is this diverter problem or do i need a new cartridge?

Without seeing it I have to go by your descrption and my first guess would be the diverter. I would replace it and see if that does the trick.

American standard kitchen faucet roars when hot water turned on

Not the aerator at all as this part would act the same if hot or cold.

Have you checked the shut-off valves under the sink? Sometimes just turning them a bit in either direction will solve that problem (will only be the case if it have been shut off at the valve recently).

Also, maybe the supply line on the hot side have been kinked?

Hope this helps

Kichen Sink Side Sparyer sticks open

The diverter in the main body of the faucet is sticking. I have included a link to all the kitchen faucets. You will have to determine which one you have but they pretty much use the same housings and guts for each of their single handle faucets. You might have to do a little research on your end so you can find info on how to replace the diverter. It's usually not hard to do.
