No cold water from the kitchen sink only.


Cold water is coming from all other faucets in the house.

We thought maybe it froze. Weather was cold, -20 degrees celcius, but warmer now. -1.

We replaced Moen Cartridge but still no cold water.


Thanks, Julian

I agree, still frozen somewhere.

Sometimes kitchen pipes are run in an outside wall. Open doors under sink let warm air in. Use a lightbulb for more heat.

Hope you get it thawed out soon with no damage.

Thanks for the response.

The thing is our pipes are not run in an outside wall, and we haven't had an issue with it in the past.

Determine if there is cold water flow from the under sink shut off valve through the cold water supply line to the faucet. If there is, debris may be affecting the new cartridge function.

After they go through the floor where do they go, basement or crawlspace? Very common for a bit of air leakage between house and foundation to blow cold air in several feet reaching water pipes.
