I have a single handle kitchen faucet. I pulled up the handle to turn on the cold water this morning, it was working fine, then suddenly it shut off, can't get water through the faucet.I have turned it off and on-no water, I thought my water had been shut off, I checked the sprayer and the sprayer works for both the hot and cold water, but not the faucet. Is it clogged? Can it be fixed, if so, can you give me a "how-to-fix" lesson--or do I need a new faucet? thanks for the help.

Since the sprayer works the the actual control valve works.

First check the aerator on the end of the spount. It should unscew and has a screw in it. If it is full of trash that will block the water flow.

But most likely the problem is the spayer diverter.

You need to find out the brand and what style the faucet is to get more details.
