The faucet probably is leaking at the base, a common failure. The only solution is replacement.

Should be valves under your sink for the faucet. #1
Make sure they are opened up enough.
If either device is new, they should support this issue.
Old plumbing can also cause this. Build up in the lines.
They can only be replaced to fix. Some water heaters have adjustable valves, make sure if you have them they are opened as needed. Remember, too low flow can cause over heated water.

The kitchen sink faucet is clogged


If it just the hot or just the cold then it will be the shutoff valve not the faucet. replace the valve/s under the sink Try checking the screen in the head of the faucet for sand. If it does not have a screen(some dont) then it will have a restrictor usually green in color that may have debris inside of it.

Just lost pressure. Only a very small stream of water comes out, hot or cold. All other faucet in the house work fine. It is about 1 1/2 years old. R10433-CP


First try the tip ariator. it can plug up. then you have to check the inlet system, which includes shut off valves, hoses to the faucet and the cartridge. It is the cartridge that has the small openings, but shut off valve seat material falls back into the feed channel. I usually remove cartridge, cover with a towel and turn on feed water briefly. Often I get little pieces.

Fix a kohler faucet
most likely the gasket broke inside the lever, you have to replace it.
shut the water off from the angle stop (valve under the sink) both hot and cold.
use an allen wrench ("L" wrench) to remove the tiny screw around the lever, >>>>before you do that place a rag covering the drain for if you drop it<<<< after that pull the lever out, that will show the inside of the faucet. use an adjustable wrench to remove the actuator from the base. when you get that part out you should be able to see the damage to the gasket. At that point you need a phillips screwdriver to get the gasket out and back in >>>>take the damaged gasket to the hardware store<<<< and get a replacement you may have to change more than one. after you get all the gaskets in place, reinsert the actuator and don't forget to tight it up with the adjustable wrench. center it so it would dispense the same amount of hot and cold water, replace the lever reinsert the tiny screw with the "L" wrench. turn on water from angle valves and test faucet.
that should do it and save you about 300 bucks
if it works for you don't forget to rate me
