I have a shower with 3 knobs. one hot, one cold, and a center one for shower or tub. when you turn the knob for the shower, the water keeps coming out of the spigot. how do you adjust this? thanks.

That is a Sayco faucet...
what you hav ein your hand is either a hot or cold stem..
for the center stem in the sayco faucet you need a special
you can put in a new diverter stem in the center
and it might make it do a better job...
but it is normal for some to come out of the spout all

You can also try to rebuild the diverter stem by replacing the worn-out bibb washer, o-rings, and any other seals. I also like to add a bit of plumber's grease to the inside threads.

Your middle ( diverter stem ) probably looks like this. Get a new one.
TIP: When removing or reinstalling any of these shower stems ( hot/cold/diverter) make sure the stem is turned to midway bewteen open/close positions.
