Valley Shower/Tub Handle

The handle of our Valley shower/tub faucet came off. I got a new handle but now can not get the old one off... They both have the screw on the bottom, and I can take the one out of the new handle but the old screw will not come out of the old handle and they look different. They both have the set screw on the bottom. However, the one that I can not get off has a screw or something in the middle of where the set screw goes in?

I hope this is clear. I'm so confused. Basically I can't get the screw out from the bottom of the one that is currently on. Any assistance is appreciated!

Thank you,

If it won't come off, break it off in small pieces, sonner or later it will get removed, and if you have to replace the stem if needed.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
