I have replaced the valve that connects the top and bottom copper pipes (hot water) under my kitchen sink as it was leaking. However, the new valve leaks as well. Can anybody help?

If it is leaking around the valve stem, just try tightening the valve stem cap. If the valve is threaded on one or both lines, try pipe dope or 2-3 clockwise wraps of teflon tape.
