Radiator wont turn off

Hi, I use old H.W. Radiator's to heat my house. When I turn them on my attic heats up to much, and I want to turn off the radiator up there, but when i turn the knob it does not turn off. Does any one know how to turn these off? Any help would be appreciated.

The valve probably goes from off to on in 1/4 turn. You may have to turn it slightly and wait to see if the temp goes down. If you take the handle off and look closely at it, you may see that it was not assembled correctly. It should only turn 1/4 turn not 3/4 turn. If it isn't that, I don't know why it won't turn off.
