Kitchen faucet, low hot water pressure


I changed my kitchen faucet last night. It has two handles and a sprayer.
After installation was complete I turned on the sprayer, hot and cold water. There was some thumping when I turned on both handles, but the water pressure in both was fine. This morning I wanted to use the sink and there was still alittle thumping when I turned on the handles. The hot water pressure was fine at first, but after about 30-40 seconds the water pressure decreased and now there's only a dribble. The cold water pressure is good from nozzle and sprayer.
Thanks for the help, carlas

Kitchen faucet, low hot water pressure


I fixed the low hot water pressure this morning. After removing both knobs and nuts, I turned the cold water cartridge with my hand, but could not turn the hot water cartridge. I had to use pliers to pull the hot water cartridge out. Underneath the cartridge was a smalll "cup like" rubber washer, that was not sitted properly. I reinstalled the washer properly, put everything back together and the hot water pressure is now good.

Thanks Carlas! That is good to know because I'm having the same symptoms with my new faucet. I'll try that. Glad you got yours fixed.
