Question about Home
Almost all valves turn to right or clockwies to close and left or counterclockwise to open. You might try spraying some WD-40 on bottom side of knobs.Let it set for a few mins. Tap on top of knobs lightly with a non marring tool such as wooden hammer handle and try to open. If it still wont open you can wrap knob tightly with masking tape or duct tape to protect the finish and use channel lock pliers or pipe wrench to try to open.Don't force it as you could break valve stem. Spray again with WD-40 and repeat above procedure until valve moves freely. Hope this helps. Thanks P:S WD-40 also works well to remove any adhesive left when you remove tape.
