My insinerstor cold water tap isn’t working I can’t even

Customer Question

My insinerstor cold water tap isn’t working I can’t even push it down…the hot water one works fine
JA: What's the brand and model of your faucet? How old is it?
Customer: insinkerator I got it almost 3 years ago
JA: How long has this been going on with your InSinkErator faucet? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It’s been a few months but I left it for ages as it was frustrating me. Someone mentioned flushing out the cold water but I don’t know how to do that
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I’ve just changed the filter using an insinkerator branded one this time as I had swapped out for cheaper versions
