no hot water kitchen faucet


Just moved into a new house a few weeks back, i told my husband that the kitchen sink had only warm or cold water not hot! He adjusted the water temp and it worked, i had hot water! Well 2 days later i have neither warm or hot water coming from that kitchen sink, only ice cold! He checked a few things but nothings worked! Could it be the faucet or is it the plumbing?? Thanks

Yes , It could be. Do you have hot water at the other fixtures ? Take the connector off the hot valve under the sink (where it connects to the fixture). Turn the valve on run some hot water in a bucket. If the water is hot . problem is in the fixture

And make sure all shutoff valves are full open. Older washer type shutoff valves often have problems with washer disintegration, and the pieces will clog up at any stricture, like a faucet valve.
