    It is possible the valve has seized. Find a local dealer and either have them come look at it, or buy parts from them.

    Have a qualified/authorized Tech look at it and repair it.
    I'll be there when I get there and not a minute later

    Good luck with finding parts, or a dealer for that matter. I don't believe Valor is any longer in buisness in North America, but I could be wrong.

    If thats the case, a lot of fireplace brands use the same or similar valves and pilots, so a Tech that will work on any brand could probably fix it.

    Valor dealers may be few in number but they are definitely still in business, and since it is a UK brand, is very popular in the UK. Here's the U.S. & Canadian dealer locator ....
