I have a problem that maybe you can help me with. I have a single handle faucet that I installed last night. It's it the kind where the sprayer and the faucet are the same head with a switch on the back of the head that switches between spayer and regular faucet. After installing, I turned on the cold water at the shut off valve and the cold water comes out of the faucet at full pressure even when the handle is in the off position. The hot water works fine. It comes on when in the on postion and goes off when in the off position. The cold water will just run, regardless of the position of the handle-off or on. I had to turn it off at the shut off valve until I can figure out what the problem is. Any suggestion

Sounds like the diverter that transfer water from faucet to sprayer is bad or stuck. Try turning water off and removing handle and remove spout to acess the diverter is near the base of the body of the faucet. Below is a link with a exploded view that will show you a parts breakdown hope this will help.
If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet. Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet. But now hot water is already at shower faucet.
Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink. This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen. How it happens: For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line. So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet. To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water. This condition may also signal there is a water leak. The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful. Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.
you can call or e-mail the company, if the faucet is the one in the picture it is a single cartdridge, turn of bith hot and cold water, take an allen wrench into the little plastic cover to remove the handle , unscrew the top cover or it might pop off, that there is either a large lock not or 3 screws holding down the cartdridge, take it out replace it put some faucet frease around all rubber gaskets then install it in the smae way it came out
Tuen the stops off unsder the sink . Remove the alaen screw from the handle. Using a spanner wrinch or a needle nosed pliers spred apart unscrew the large nut that has two slots. Lift the whole assembly out. Take assembly to the plunmbign supply and match ius the kit that youy need with has two new rubber seals and two springs and maybe a new spanner nut. It also comes with the spanner wrench and allen wrench
needed to renstall. Tip you may be able just to tighten the spanner nut(clockwise) and stop the leak w/o rebuilding it.
