Another low pressure question

Hello,
We just bought a 25 year old house a couple of months ago.
The kitchen sink (I will try to describe it) consists only
of a sprayer. It looks similiar to a sprayer, you can pull
it out, etc. No other faucets. Underneath the sink, water
also goes to the ice maker. Up until today, we had good
water pressure. Now, there is very little water pressure
at the kitchen sink. We have no other problem with water
pressure elsewhere. I took the very end of the sprayer off
where there is a filter, but even without the filter, the
pressure was low. The sprayer is chrome and looks like a
faucet. In other posts, I read about a diverter, but
I am not sure I would have a diverter with such a hookup.
There is low pressure with both the hot water and cold
water. Thank you for any help.

Cool

The sprayer faucet has some type of diverter in its base.
You should be able to take it apart and get replacement and repair parts.
Turn off the cut-off valves to the faucet and disassemble it (note the brand name), take the diverter to a store and get an exact replacement, and reassemble it.
Good Luck!
