Default kitchen faucet water pressure reduced

Hi all, a couple of weeks ago we noticed the water pressure at our kitchen faucet has been reduced. No other faucet has been reduced in the house, only the kitchen faucet. we checked the valves under the sink but they are all at full. I don't see any leaks anywhere. Is there a common cause for this? where should I look next?

Check the screen at the nozzle to see if it's plugged. If you've got an older hot water tank you may be getting rust flakes and such that might get stuck in the screen. Other than that, it might be that the faucet either needs new parts or needs to be replaced.

You can call the manufacturer, Moen or whichever brand, and ask for a replacement cartridge. They are usually lifetime warranty.

Not exactly. lol but it's not hard if you can handle an adjustable wrench.

the problem was the button that you press to suppress the water temporarily was stuck a bit.

I haven't heard of such a button before.
