1/4 turn Ball valve shuts off halfway1/8


My master shut off is a 1/4 turn ball valve. It will shut the water off 1/8 turn but then opens up again if pushed the full 1/4 to the "closed" position. How is that even happening? It's kinda broke and not sure if I should repair or leave it alone. Since its the master I dont want it blowing up with no quick way to turn it off.

Check the screw to make sure it is secured. Then check the "stop" to make sure a loosened screw didn't allow it to "skip" and become seated in the wrong position.

After checking this, close the ball, no matter where the handle lands. Remove the handle and position it 90 degrees to the supply line and tighten the screw back down. Let us know how that works

Upon closer inspection the only thing I can move is the nut and then the handle when the nut is removed. This is the position it is in when closed. Due to the shape of the hole (rectangle) I can only put the handle back on the same way or rotate it 180 degrees and have it flipped. Thank you for the help.
