It isn’t a huge problem but annoying.You say I can heat a screwdriver and melt a crease; then come back and unscrew. I will try this.<Blog reference from post on July 25, 2011 – ”Repairing Jandy Valves”>However, if I need to drill a small hole in the center and try to extract I have one question. Does the locking knob itself, in any way, seal in water for the valve? I am afraid that if I drill a small hole in the lodged screw that all of a sudden I will have water leaking everywhere. My thought is that it doesn’t hold or seal water since they are removable and I would be OK if I didn’t drill down further than the stem.Thanks Pool guy!
I had an issue with one of my Jandy valves and a short email or 2 later and I was done with the job. Thanks for the help! A class A outfit.
