 Kitchen sink NO HOT WATER
Author: Ginza (NY)

My shower is usually hot, however yesterday it took a very long time to run hot. After a few minutes of running hot, it suddenly started to run cold. The same day, the kitchen hot water would not run hot. It was COLD! I noticed that while the kitchen hot water faucet was running cold water I turned on the HOT water faucet in the bathtub and suddenly the hot water started coming out of the hot water faucet in the kitchen. What's going on??

Please HELP

Could be a bad check valve on the recirc line
Or possibly multiple bad mixing cartridges in the faucets
Has any work been done recently to cause a cross connection?

Do you have a tankless water heater?
