New Moen faucet hot water low pressure


Hello everyone.

I've been doing some upgrading to my kitchen lately. 2 weeks ago, I installed a new Moen 7840 Camerist faucet. Its a single handle with a side sprayer.

After I installed it, pressure was fine. Then last weekend, I installed a new dishwasher and a new garbage disposal. After that, the pressure on the hot side is much lower than the cold side. The same thing happens when the side sprayer is in use also.

Pressure elsewhere in the house is fine.. I never touched my hot water heater.
Plumbing is copper.

I'm looking for things to check/try any ideas?

Thanks

I would not be surprized that it was just trash that came loose in the lines stuck in the valve assembly.

OK, so I just need to take the compression fitting off and see if I can get it cleaned out? I've never really dealt with a faucet before.

It could also be that the washer in your angle stop came loose and lodged itself somewhere it shouldn't be.

Is valve under sink closed/clogged?

I'll turn things back off this weekend and see if I can see whats going on.
How do I check the angle valve?

Thanks for the ideas.

Shut off the water disconnet the line under the sink and put it in a bucket and turn the valve back on.
