Frozen Pipes

I believe my kitchen pipes are frozen. Its been in the teens/single digits since saturday here. I had the water dripping and the cabinets open since saturday afternoon but it didn't work. My hot water works but the cold doesn't. My hot and cold both work in the bathroom.

I've got a electric heater going near the pipes and the cold water turned on to about medium level trying to thaw it out and push the water through the frozen section. The heater has been going since about 2:45 p.m. and I noticed the water didn't work around 11 this morning. It was working last night.

I think it's frozen under the ground. What do you recommend? I'm afraid the pipes going to burst.

Can really give you any direction, but if the pipes burst - and let me tell you that it has been a nationwide problem this week - call 1800 Respond for help. ServiceMaster.

wraping an electical(heating) tape around the cold water line may be safer

I got to spend Sat. morning laying on my belly digging out a ruptured water line with a coffee cup. Luckily I had everything I needed to cap off the line and it was not a needed line (going to an out building). Good luck.

no room to manuever anything bigger than a garden trowel.

If the pipe has burst you'll know it when it thaws out.

If the water is working in the bathroom it's not an underground problem. When you look under your sink, do the supply pipes go into the wall, or the bottom of the cabinet towards the floor?

It goes directly under the cabinet floor. Well one line goes through a filter in the cabinet but i imagine that has nothing to do with anything since it probably filters both cold and hot.

I'm assuming this is in a house? If so, does the sink area happen to be located over a cantilever (basically an overhang)?

Then yeah. The cabinets floor is actually three or so inches higher then the kitchen floor.
