Question about American Standard Plumbing
SOURCE: 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

Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.
Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,
O= hottest 7=cold
See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info! It turns out that our faucet was so old it had black plastic piece that had to be popped out and re-positioned!"
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.
