Make certain that the mortar from the tile setting is not adhering to the stem. You need an open space all around the stem to be sure it is loose. Once this is done almost all stems will unscrew with just a little effort.

: Hi Terry,

: Using the bathtub faucet socket set I bought, I cannot turn the assembly. I turned the faucet open all the way, used along pipe for leverage, but fear I will break something in the wall so I stopped. Someone suggested heating assembly with a torch. Any suggestions?
