    I have an American Standard bathroom faucet. I believe it is the cadet model.

    This morning when I turned it on the aerator flew off into the since. I tried to screw it back on and realized the plastic threads inside the faucet were damaged.

    I took the bottom plate off the faucet and found part with the threads on it and removed it. It shows part number A923300.

    I searched for the part online using google and checked the diagrams at **************.com and American standard. I found the faucet, but they do not list this part in the diagram on either site. Then I went to Ace Hardware and *******. Neither of them had the part and the Danco catalog which had the diagram of the faucet did not show this part.

    Am I out of luck? Do I need to just replace the faucet?

    Here is a picture of the part:

    Is your faucet fairly new? Strange to see such a part made of plastic. It very likely is not a replaceable part. What model # did you come up with for your faucet? Cadet is a venerable name, and it could be from 30 years ago, or yesterday. The number on the item is just a mold mark, and most likely is not the AMSTD part #./

    Obviously it is junk!

    Try Moen or, Delta.

    I believe it is guaranteed so call American Standard customer service. They will probably send a new faucet.

    Which will have about a 50/50 shot of being junk too!

    I figured my best bet was to replace. I couldn't believe it was plastic!

    When I moved in there were three of these faucets. The first one failed about six months ago, this one is number two.

    The house was heavily remodeled in 1998, so I am guessing that's when they were put in.

    How long should a "good" faucet last?

    Hey Red. You hate Am Std, I hate Moen. We're narrowing the playing field. :D

    Chicago Faucets from the 1920's are still in use and still use the current faucet parts to repair them.
