What do you mean? The adjuster is topping out, like hitting the end of it's adjustment? If not, what's the problem? Well, even if so, what's the problem? There is a definite end to both directions.

Have the forks worked ok in the past?

If yes when did the issue start? All at once or over time?

Are there the right amount and weight of fork oil in each fork?

Have you checked to see if it both forks or just one "topping out"?

Have you taken the forks apart? IF yes find anything loose?

Three basic possibiities - they could be low on oil, or something has broken/come loose inside, or someone was in them and did not assemble them correctly.

Ahh, now that I've re-read it, I get what you're saying.
