Apartment Mystery Maintenance Call Of The Week: Why Is Only Hot Water Coming Out of the Kitchen Faucet?


The mystery maintenance call of the week and the job came from Seattle this week.

The maintenance call was for a kitchen sink in the greater Seattle area in which the water would only come out scalding hot.

When the issue was reported, the property manager said, “When you turn all the way to cold you only get a trickle of cold water. You can’t even get warm water, it’s always super-hot.”

The issue had been going on for a few months.

When the Keepe worker came out, they were able to solve the mystery.

The faucet valve was malfunctioning and killing the pressure on cold side, stopping the flow of cold water and only letting the hot water through.

After the source of the issue was found, the faucet was replaced and is now working great!
