Low water pressure

Looking for any thoughts on my low kitchen faucet water pressure. I have a 08
Ellipse, with a Atwood hot water heater. The hot water started making the buzz sound so I replaced the check value. Had a lot of trouble removing the old one and connecting the water supply but did get it done. The problem is bath and shower are fine but the kitchen faucet has low water pressure. I did remove the
Filter screens and cleaned them but had no improvement. Can any body offer any ideas? Thanks Ken

When you indicated "filter screens" are you talking about the aerator on the end of the kitchen faucet? That would be my first guess as to your problem. As you can see in this picture, there could be more parts in the faucet that need to be cleaned. The problem could also be a clogged valve in the faucet.

Does the kitchen faucet have low water pressure in both hot and cold settings? Is the faucet a single handle or dual handle?

If just hot you broke loose a piece of crud and its stuck in a restriction of faucet plumbing.
The tubes to faucet may only have 3/16 ID at connections check first one.

Thanks you, yes I did mean the aerator screens. I have what I call a goose neck kitchen faucet, I have removed the head/ spray unit from the flex line and the water presure did not change. Which makes me think somehow the check value, maybe the supply line that comes out from the check value. Single line that tee,s
Off into two different direction. Also the pressure is low in both cold and hot. But the bath is fine. Thanks for your thoughts Ken

Does yours look anything like mine? (see pic)

If it was me, I would take the faucet apart an remove the valve. Not too hard to do. I'm guessing some calcium deposits were dislodged and have collected in the valve body partially blocking the flow.

If it is still having problems pressure while unattached to the sink, look at your lines to make sure you don't have a bent or kinked line.

If only one is low pressure then the problem is in the faucet or line to the faucet.
