Kia K2700 front brakes binding, new master and load censor.

check the adjustment of the pedal for the master cylinder
the rod attached to the pedal must be free about 1" movement before the master cylinder is activated
if the pistons in the master cylinder are not free of the compensating ports tyen hot brake fluid will push on the calliper pistons and apply the brakes
the load sensor is only a proportioning valve to allow more pressure to the rear brakes under a loaded situation
you may have to take it to an accredited brake specialist shop to properly diagnose the problem

do you here rumbling also from one or both sides front or rear if its four wheel disc brakes one or more brake calipers can be locked up or the emergency brake is not releasing in the rear if drum brakes in the rear the return springs could have broken this is what pulls the brake shoes back when you take your foot off the pedal and will make a lot of noise and cause resistance because the brake for that wheel is partially or fully applied LATER MAN!

Where is the pressure regulator for the front brakes on a 2002 kia sportage

there is no pressure regulator in the front brakes system. The harder you press the pedal the more braking action. There is an equaliser in the rear brake line to prevent rear lock up under moderate brakes and this is all over ridden by the ABS system when it sensors a locked wheel situation.

When braken pedal is applied vehicle does not stop but when pedal fully applied the brakes lock up

Check the brake fluid reservoir. If the front brake system is empty and the rear still has fluid, you won't get much braking but the rears will lock up.
If the front system is out of fluid, you probably have a leak somewhere or the caliper pistons have to travel too far because of worn out brake pads.
Either way, you need to have someone work on the brakes.

if you have rear drum brakes, check the rear brakes to see if you have any fluid leaks as in brake fluid from the wheel cylinder. it sounds like that is what is happening. when rear drum brakes get oil soaked they tend to lock up when the brakes are applied

My brakes are locking up on all four wheels on my 04 sentra.

Your brake light switch is adjusted in all the way and is pressing on the brake pedal. This causes the brake to be slightly applied. As you drive the vehicle the brake fluid heats up and expands, the brakes will apply more and more until you see the smoke. Bottom line: your brakes are always applied at the master cylinder because something(usually the brake light switch) is out of adjustment.
