I disconnected the hose after the shut off on the hot water side of my kitchen sink. The hose is free of obstructions. When I turned the shut off valve back on, water sprayed out with more air than water coming out of the shut off. The hot water presure is everywhere else in the house. Does this mean I have an obstruction somewhere along the water line leading to the kitchen sink?

Did you take apart the faucet spout and check for debris (after shutting off the water)

Also depending on the type of faucet single lever or two handle check the hot water port and the actual sprayer head as sometimes mineral deposits block it

I have replaced the faucet already. Is the spray from the shut off normal? Granted I have not opened the valve completley, but there is such agreat amount of air & water pressure (mostly air) coming from it I do not dare to open it further.
