At first I thought it was only the ones to my kitchen sink, but I just checked my bathroom sinks and toilets, and on all but 1 of those, the water shutoff valves will not budge to turn them off. Obviously this will be a problem if I ever have a water leak, so I want to figure out what's going on.I know it's not just that I'm not turning them hard enough, since my ex-boyfriend was in my house a couple months ago and I asked him to try the ones under the sink, and he couldn't get them to budge either.Before I put in a claim with my home warranty - anyone know off-hand why water shutoff valves might not turn? I see there's a screw within the handle - is there someway to tighten that screw that would prevent the entire handle from turning? Since it's just about all of them - it appears it might be something that was done to them for some reason by the previous homeowner.
