Why does my bathroom sink faucet leak only when the hot water valve is turned on?

    You didn’t give much information but your problem could be the packing nut on your hot faucet stem needs to be tightened a bit. If you remove the handle you should see a stem with a nut near the bottom that holds it into the manifold. Carefully tighten that nut just a bit then slide the handle back on to try the faucet again. If it still seeps a bit you can repeat tightening the nut a little each time until the leaking stops. Good luck.

    Bad seat, valve assembly or orings. Most faucets can be rebuild for less than 10-15 bucks.
