My problem is when I turn on the kitchen faucet (single knob type) and turn it to the cold side, it trickles cold water out. Yet any other position I put it in I get hot water. This began about 2 years ago when my brother installed a dishwasher adjacent to the kitchen sink. My mother had been living with it ever since. No I have bought the house and its driving me nuts. Anyone got any ideas? I am thinking of replacing the faucet as it is old.
Not sure why it's only the cold, but have you taken the faucet apart and checked for a filter screen inside the handle? I did work on a pipe and debris flowed to the faucet I turned on first. It worked for about 10 seconds and then died. Your brother probably didn't mess with the cold. Maybe just bumped it enough. It might be worth a try.
