sounds like the valve in the tap is jammed and/or the washer has gone. if the taps are cheap units this happens frequently.first turn the cold tap to off then remove the cap on top of the cold side knob and youll see a screw. undo this and slide the knob upwards off the spline. tap the top of the brass stem with the spline on it with a hammer and replace the knob. turn the tap on as far as it will go and back again a few times and it should work. Then replace the screw and cap. you will need to replace the washer/taps ASAP.
