SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

SOURCE: Kitchen Faucet 6310 020 White - HOT WATER SIDE NOT WORKING

The faucet cartridge is more then likely blocked and the faucet will have to be disassembled in order to unblock it.
While it is disassembled you should slowly turn on the water lines to make sure the water ways in the faucet are clear. And thoroughly check the cartridge for damage. Replace if necessary.
Replacement Cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or Big Box Stores such as Lowes or the like.

Hot water side slower pressure than cold side on one handle kitchen faucet


If problem is isolated to one faucet, then clog is located near that faucet.
I have same problem on one faucet when sediment and dirt collects at shut-off valve for some reason.

Problem can be at shut off or at supply tube or at faucet ... or all 3.

Repairs get things kind of wet so get out bucket and towels.
Take apart center mixing valve on faucet and turn water on to see if problem flushes out.
Disconnect hot side supply tube at faucet. Turn water on and see if that flushes problem out.
Remove shut off valve and turn water on to see if that flushes problem.
Replace shut-off valve.
Next place to look is elbow inside wall.

My kitchen tap keeps dripping all the time how do i stop it


The washers and seals on either the hot or cold side of the faucet need to be replaced. Until they can be replaced and the dripping is keeping you up at night or you don't want to waste water. Turn off the shutoff valves to the faucet under the sink. Just remember to turn them back on when you need to use them.

How to install supply lines for Grohe k4 faucet


I hope this helps.
Step11Turn off the water supply. You'll find a shut-off valve under your kitchen sinkmag-glass_10x10.gif. Once the water is turned off, open up the kitchen faucets to allow the water remaining in the pipes to drain way. Step2Catch the drips by placing a bucket under the hot water supply line, located on the left side of your sink. Even a minimum of water can cause a mess and be potentially damaging. Step3Use a wrench to remove the compression nut that secures the hot water supply line. Let the disconnected section fall into the bucket. Use the wrench to loosen and remove the nut at the other end of the line and remove it as well. Step4Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the cold water supply line. Step5Replace the cold water supply line. Hand-tighten the nuts on both ends, then use the wrench to tighten the nuts completely. Repeat the process with the hot water supply line. Step6Turn on the water supply and test for leaks
