to be honest with you if there is a problem the glacier bay brand is from home depot and they are usualy around 20 to 30 dollars the replacement stems are usualy 15 to 40 depending on the part plus the hours ur gonna spend fixing it your better off with a full replacement. if replaced keep in mind you might want to replace the supliy lines to the faucet with stainless steal suply lines to ensure no leaks and if your shut offs are old dont touch them shut off your water main and drain down your house by opening all the faucets and shower valvs in your house then drain at the lowest point in the house weather it be a sink in the basement or an out side faucet once the supliy lines and faucet is in place then close all the faucets you opened and slowly turn on the water to your house slowly and this will ensure you dont have any leeks from your shutoffs good luck your friendly plumber

check the strainer where the water comes out of your faucet it may be clogged or if the faucet has a cartridge in it it may be clogged and you will have to dis assemble the faucet to clean it usually the strainer is the problem and it should unscrew by hand

Theres not much you can do to repair the stem except replacing the small O-ring up inside. You can call Glacier Bay and ask for a new stem ( the faucet has a limited lifetime warranty. You can also use Delta faucet repair parts in your Glacier Bay kitchen faucet; they come from the same mold. Heres a link to Glacier Bay 2 handle kitchen faucet repair. Heres one to the Glacier Bay faucet manual for your faucet.

it is likely required. many new faucets have what's called a pressure balance valve that helps prevent scalding by lowering the pressure of hot when the cold pressure drops (due to a toilet flush or other water being run). Because you have pressure to only one side, that can cause the valve not to provide the necessary volume.
