I had to replace the kitchen sink, and when I tried to turn thr water off under the sink I found that one of the shut offs didn't work. So I shut the water off in the whole house. There is sink in the basement laundry room right below the kitchen. I opened the faucet in the sink in the basement to drain the water from the line going up to the kitchen. Now after connecting everything and turning the water back on, it just dribbles out of the new kitchen faucet. All the other faucets in the house work just fine.

What happened?

How do I get that faucet to work?

Any info would be helpful...

Did you bother to remove the new Aerator prior to turning on the water? If not then it is most likely filled with mineral deposits blocking the flow.

Also since you had trouble shutting the valve under the sink a washer may have become dislodged and also could cause a no flow condition
