Your water heater pipes may be clogged - if your water heater is more than 7 years old you may need to replace it. Visually inspect your water heater to see if there's any visible rust near the bottom or a slow leak. If you are on a well as opposed to city water, Rust is probably your culprit. If it's electric, remove the covers and check out the elements there - there should be a small amount of rust visible if the heater is old. Gas units are very different in construction, and changing a water heater is not exactly an easy job - I would suggest calling in a Plumber to change it, as most states require a licensed plumber to execute this type of job, and many cities require permits for this to be done too.

    You hadn't mentioned the good flow elsewhere; Now I would suspect a buildup of contaminants in the faucet itself. fill a cup with water, then shut off the water supply ( both hot and cold ) under the sink and remove the handle on the hot side. Next remove the nut holding the faucet stem in and pull the stem, looking for buildup in the faucet seat. If your faucet cannot be disassembled then you'll want to consider replacing it. Most economically priced modern faucets are not serviceable and need replacement when they mess up. Adding an inline filter would help collect the buildup. Hope this helps!!!

How do i repair bellera #r560vs kitchen faucet reduced/low cold water flow have installed newfaucet valve


Turn off the hot & cold water supply lines at the shut-off valves.

Yo need to use the correct replacement cartridge for the faucet you are fixing

The cartridge replacement procedure requires using food grade silicone lubricant around the base of the new cartridge and around the threads of the bonnet.

Then you must properly align the 2 bumps on the bottom of the cartridge with the inside body of the faucet.

Insert and tighten down the bonnet that holds the cartridge in place to where it is snug- do not over tighten the bonnet!

Then reinstall the trim piece and lever.

Slowly, fully open the hot and cold water shut-offs and check for leaks at the shut offs, sink handle, and spout.

If you are using the Watts brand floodsafe supply lines, turn the hot and cold water shut-offs, on slowly. Rapid flow and pressure may activate the floodsafe valve within the supply line, causing little to no water flow to the faucet.

sounds like a bad faucet//only if you had good pressure before it was installed..to cheaply test..take the hot water off from the shutoff valve and spray it into a milk jug to see if theres good flow..then replace the faucet assmbly..dont forget to turn off the shutoff valve first..or you will get a watery surprise!

MAchine fills slowly. Have cleaned the screens.


Check the solenoid. You can swap the hot and cold water hoses and set the wash for hot but cold will come out. Then you can see if the flow is better. If it is the cold valve isn't opening all the way.

Cold water tap not working, house heating not as strong.


Okay let's trouble shoot this problem. The Hot water issue may just be that your Temp. control is not set as high as it was before it was replaced. Find the control on the water heater and check the setting. You can adjust it hotter from there, but it is not recomended to set it all the way to HOT. Just increase it at small adjustments and see if the water gets hotter. The Cold Water Tap issue.....Turn off the Cold and Hot water supply lines to the faucet. Remove the Cold water tap. VERY SLOWLY TURN ON THE COLD WATER SUPPLY and see if you get water coming out of the line. If you get water, then your line is okay. Inspect the valve to see if there is any debris in or on it. Clean and reinstall both taps and turn back on the water. It should work. Now if you turn the water on SLOWLY when the Cold water tap is removed, and no water comes out, Then you know you have an issue with the line going to the cold water side. (Frozen Line, Debris in supply line valve, Broken or Leaking Water Line) I hope this assists you........Joe

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.
