Question

kitchen faucet sudden stoppage


i was doing dishes and the kitchen faucet was full on mixing 50-50. then it suddenly stopped discharging. i was like, WTH, do we not have water in the house. but all the other faucets were working fine. eventually, as i left the faucet on for a few minutes, it started discharging again but just a little, then a little more than just drippage but the pressure is still way low.

what could be the problem? it is definitely within the faucet itself, like something came through the water supply and clogged the mixing valve or something.

It would have helped if you described the faucet as there are more than one kind.

My guess is it's a faucet with a pull out head and the back flow is clogged.
