Question about Home
There are a number of reasons your faucet may not be shutting off. If you have an old type of faucet, the problem may be due to a worn out washer, or the faucet may have a damaged seat. In which case, there is a tool that can be purchased in your neighborhood hardware store. You will have to disassemble the faucet and examine the seat to verify the damage. In older faucets, it is sometimes better to replace the faucet than make the repairs, as the repairs and the search for parts to repair the faucet may be almost impossible to find.
Or you may have a washerless faucet which actually has a different type of spring loaded washer, and will wear over a period of time as well.
The shut off valve may even be somewhat loose and require tightening. In most cases, this can be verified if the handle turns 360 degrees and never tightens completely.
I hope this helps you solve your problem
