Low/no water pressure in kitchen faucet

In the last week the water pressure in my kitchen faucet has dropped a lot. The "stream" functions trickles out and the "spray" feature doesn't work at all. It’s a Moen faucet that looks like this, but is not this exact model. I cleaned the aerator, tried a different faucet spout, and replaced the cartridge in the base of the spout to no change. What should I do next – try to replace the entire faucet or is it time to call in a plumber?

quiet1ne, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Try disconnecting the supply lines under the sink after turning off the valves. Then hold a rag over the valve(s) and turn on and off 2 or 3 times. May be something broke loose and is clogging the supply valves. Good luck.
