Hi and thanks for any responses in advance. I have two waterfalls with a natural gas fire feature in center of each of them. You can see in the pic attached. On one of them, the gas valve won't open even thought the brass handle turns the valve all the way open and closed. I haven't had the fire feature on in two years and I am selling the house and of course there was a home inspection today and the inspector found that gas valve won't open. Of COURSE it won't. As you can see in the pic, the gas valve appears to be way down inside the stone wall. I haven't attempted repair yet but can't figure out how to get to it. I'm assumming valve is stuck due to lack of use but am confused by the fact the valve control spins both directions easily to full stop open and full stop closed but no gas comes out. I KNOW it worked when I bought this place. I'm guessing stuck valve. I plan on removing all the glass beads to expose the fire shaft and maybe soaking it with WD40 to try to break it loose but not really sure how it works. Anyone have any ideas how to get to the valve. You can see in pic how low it is below the fountain assembly.....I'm stumped on how to fix it or cost to hire repairs. Have to come to agreement in next 3 days as movers come Thursday. Again, any help appreciated.
