Kitchen faucet low water flow

I have a 2006 Monaco Diplomat 40PAQ with a kitchen faucet that has very low water flow. I have good flow in all other faucets and showers. I cleaned out the sprayer and no kinks in the flex line. What could be the problem?

Is this a new problem?

Is both the hot and cold flow the same?

Is there a dedicated filter to only the kitchen faucet?

I have a 06’ Camelot pdq and found that the other faucets were not low flow so lots of flow but the kitchen was. Because I don’t boondock much I replaced the faucet mostly because we didn’t care for it and removed the water saver. We also have a factory filter just for the kitchen sink “pentair” and if that starts to get old it will cut down on flow and pressure. With a new filter and no water savor we now have no issues.

Many kitchen faucets have a screen(aerator) in them just prior to the water exit - if so, it can get stopped up. How to video -

Yrp, check/change that filter under the sink; mine was good for just 2 years, an Everpure. TB

We had the same problem. Replaced the faucet and could not believe the difference in water flow!

Cleaning the screens on our sinks made them better. We had lime build up in them causing the problems. We have since installed a water softener and haven't had any issues since.

I have a 2006 Holiday Rambler Ambassador with the same low water flow issue on the kitchen sink faucet. Matter of a fact I have almost NO water flow! I have already removed the screens and cleaned them. Yes they were full of lime scale but that didn't fix the issue. No difference on hot or cold water setting. The drinking water dispenser at the kitchen sink that is Tee'd off the same cold water line works fine! It has it's own in line filter though.

I was wondering, is it possible to take these faucets apart and clean them or do we just have to buy a new one? The faucet has to be the issue.

Problem fixed!!! Pulled faucet sprayer head out to see the flex line connection. Removed sprayer from flex line and found more screens that were clogged. Cleaned screens and all is well.

Hopefully that's my problem as well. Thanks for the follow up!
