I'm not 100% sure how this valve even works so I can't tell if its stuck open or not. Theres two rectangle openings and within them, in between them, theres a cylinder extending all the way across. I assume thats the piece that opens and closes. But I'm not sure if this is it in its open or closed position lol
If the valve is stuck open, should I be expecting it to snap shut once I clean it enough?
