Jammed Stopcock

Postby Cranky » Mon Jun 23, 2008 4:27 pm

Hi, i'm having some problems with the stopcock under the sink, when trying to shut the water off its increadibly stiff, so much so that when I tried to tighten it with my hands the slide-on handle has cracked off the spindle. :shock:

I've tried using WD40 on it but its still will not close more than 1-2 turns does anyone have any advice??

Cheers Si
