Gas Shut off valve

The handle on my gas shut off valve snapped off. Is there a way to just replace the handle or do I need to replace the whole valve.

Hello Martyg3. Welcome to the Do It Yourself web site.

The handle, if it's a lever type may be replaced seperately but not advised nor recommended. Chances are one will not be able to be purchased seperately, even if it is the type with a center screw.

If the lever broke off the valve, it is an indication the ball or core in the valve is frozen in the body of the valve. Not a safe valve if it cannot be turned by the hand operating lever.

Replacing the entire valve is highly recommended and suggested.
