Intermittent low or no flow in kitchen faucet

My title explains my problem. I have a single handle kitchen faucet. Also connected to the faucet is a sink spray hose. Intermittently I will get no, or minimal, water flow from the faucet, no matter what position the handle is in; cold or hot. However, when this happens, it doesn't interfere with good water flow through the sprayer.

I checked the screen/filter and it is okay. This has been going on for over a week and is driving me nuts! Any ideas for me?

Thank You in advance!

glh, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Since you checked the aerator and its clear, I guess the cartridge in the faucet is next. Sometimes the sprayer is connected below the rest of the faucet so it works fine. Find the name and model of your faucet and get a new cartridge. It could be the "O" rings or just plugged. Make sure you watch the position (top/bottom) of the cartridge when you pull it out so it goes back in the same position. Good luck.
