Hi my name is Robert...
The valve could have failed if the motor is running, I would make sure you have good voltage as if the voltage was low the motor might run but not be able to move the blade. Most of these valves do have a manual override on them. IF you can tell me the manufacturer of the valve I can find out about the over-ride.... It may say on the side of the valve.... Robert
