Bathroom tap stopped turning

1494 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  DangerMouse
My hot tap in my bathroom has gone a bit strange, it used to be fine but recently it will not turn at all, it's not stuck in as much you could loosen it it just seems unable to be turned meaning i can't get any hot water.

Has anyone else encountered this before and knows a likely cause and solution?

Thanks in advance, any advice would be helpful.

sounds like maybe the shaft broke? it turns but does nothing? perhaps the 'gear teeth' are stripped? if it's a piece of china junk, that's likely the problem..... if grease didn't help, i'd pull the whole thing and replace it, if possible.
