This would normally just be a part but in some cases it can be a new tap

Sounds as simple as replacing the washers and maybe a tap re- seating.

Either get tap replaced or call a plumber out to see if it can be repaired but would really suggest changing it

Cold water valve has seized up. This is due to age, washer deterioration or turning tap of to hard.

Hello homeowner the problem with your mixer tap will be one of two things firstly it could be the internals have broken up or secondly it could have started to seize up this restricting the movement of the tap parts you need to get the tap stripped for inspection and assess whether it is economical to repair or replace taps
