No Hot Water Supply after Removing R.O. System


Today I removed the reverse osmosis unit from under my kitchen sink. Naturally, the unit had little water lines going all over the place, which I removed.

Now I just have the cold water line going from the wall to the faucet, and the hot water line going to the dishwasher and the faucet.

When I turned the water back on (both hot and cold knobs), I have nothing coming from the hot side.
I removed the line from the wall to the faucet, and there still is no water coming from the wall spigot.
I turned on the dishwasher to see if it would pull any water, and it did not.

Any ideas what happened with my hot water supply? It's fine in the rest of the house.

Thanks

The rubber washer inside of your angle stop has come loose from the end of the stem and is plugging the supply outlet of the stop.

Actually, I figured it out. The ball portion of the valve had broken off. I picked up a new valve and everything is fine now.
