    My cold water faucet in my kitchen is not working properly. This is the problem. The cold water valve is open, cold water comes out fine. But for some reason, I am unable to turn it off with the faucet knob on top. Even if the knob is turned completely off I can open up the cold water valve and water will pump out. So my question is, is there something that needs to be "adjusted"?

    A picture would help or a brand name. Probably needs a repair part, but hard to tell what from your scant description.

    The age of the faucet and brand name would be very helpful.
