Thank you very much for the advice!

So, apparently, the valve is broken and need to be
replaced.

As you said, the valve does screw into
the supply line inside the house. It goes into a
"L" shaped connector through a female adapter.

So, I need to:
- unscew the crews on the outside wall,
then lossen up (unscrew) the valve from the female
adapter, (better with two wrenches).
- try to salvage the brass pipe (about 13 inches long)
- use the pipe on the new valve
- screw the new valve with pipe into the L shaped
connector (using two wrenches) again.

I hope I get it right and thanks again for your
help!

Tom
