    I changed on of these in my old house and it was not a problem. this one seems to be. It is the rotation model counter clockwise to 8:00 for hot off is at 5:00 or thereabouts. It may be 15 years old and we have active water with acid. So out of the blue it looses it reference. The 8:00 position is cold the 1:00 is off and hot where cold used to be. I popped the cover and went to unscrew the knob and the valve rotates 360 degrees and does not unscrew and release the handle. So before I cut the handle off with a drill saw and chisel to be able to capture the stem and unscrew it I will ask for ideas. thanks in advance.
