    I turned on the outside faucet and heard some banging then all of the sudden my kitchen faucet which was off, started gushing water out! I turned off the valve under the kitchen sink, but if I turn it back on the water starts comimg out again regardless of the outside faucet being off. I don't knoe what to do help please:(

    From your description the kitchen faucet is broken, so you need a plumber to repair or replace it.

    Sounds like a ON / OFF position problem.

    But I am not I plumber.

    Gushing is the key word. Or is it dribble ?

    There are so many possibilities for "the water will not turn off" that we would need a good picture or maybe even have to be there.
