Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your shower knob... can you give a bit more information? How about posting a picture! That usually gets more responses.

Do you think the shower knob is "frozen" because it is rusted shut? Has it been a long time since it has been used? Is the handle able to be pulled off after removing the screw? It may be rusty, it might be someone turned it off really hard and jammed something? If it looks rusty a bit of WD40 spray and careful turning (not to break anything!) might loosen it... What have you tried?

Post more information and perhaps more suggestions will be posted!

Good luck.

it sounds like the same problem that I had with mine. My trailer is a 75. not sure if it is the same valve but if it is...
then it is a moen and all you have to do is replace the cartridge. unscrew the screw that hold the knob on and you will see a copper keeper that is in a slot that with a little hole in the top. just use a small pick or stiff wire to slide the keeper up. then up can get a screwdriver under it to remove it all the way. then the cartridge should just pull out. you should be able to get a new one at any good hardware store.

After I replace mine and got the shower to turn on I found that there was a major leak behind the panal where the valve come through. this was caused from a forzen pipe.
