Earlier today, this DIY community helped me take the first step in fixing my mixing valve (which doesn't do any mixing when turned- the water stays tepid) - thank you! Now, I'm at the next stage where I was able to pop the handle off and observe what you see in this picture:
I'm not sure what to do next. The brass piece does not spin, not even with gently applied pliers. Is it supposed to, or is it the piece inside that's supposed to turn? Should I remove the plastic plate and see what's behind it?
