Question

Help identifying replacement for leaking sprayer head


I have a sprayer and it has been dripping for quite a while. Recently the drip has become a real problem and when I'm using the sink the sprayer will drip out the back tab. The sprayer has the logo "AM" under the tab which I assume is American Standard. Here's a picture of the logo:


I have adjusted the little screw inside and while that worked well at first it no longer works. I have a feeling there is something wrong with the spring no longer springing back to close the sprayer, or something like that. Here's a picture of the sprayer head:


I think this thing is past the point of fixing but what do I know. Does anyone have an exploded view of the parts? How expensive do you think it would be to replace? I bought the faucet/sprayer combo at Home Expo many years ago (once a Home Depot type store) and I have no idea what model it is.

If you guys could please let me know if you have any idea how to identify my model, and what you think I should do. Thanks

Any plumbing supply, hardware store, Lowes and Home Depot all carry new ones.
May just have to also replace the hose as well.
The easyest way to replace the whole unit is to remove the whole faucet. Once it's out it's just a matter of unscrewing one and screwing on the new one.

I thought replacing the head would be cheaper than replacing the whole thing, and I also know it would be hard to find something that has the same design and stainless steel look. I found some black plastic ones but nothing like what's on there.
Am I right that AM is american standard?

AM is not American Standard. If memory serve me that logo is tied to a company called AM Conservation Group or something like that

So anyone have any idea what this is? I'd really like to keep the sprayer body if possible because it matches the faucet. I checked out the website for AM Conservation Group but I don't think this is their sprayer.

You want one exactly the same style or do you just want the color to match?

I'd prefer to do what's cheapest while keeping with the same stainless steel style. I thought it would be cheapest to replace the sprayer head rather than put in a whole new unit.
