I did put some Break Off and WD40 on it. I was using a T-handle hex wrench, but I was afraid I was going to break the wrench before the thing budged. It's not stripped. Maybe I'll try it again.

Thanks for the reply. I just checked and the breaker is 15amp, so it must be 14/3. I didn't think about how I'm supposed to run/secure the new cable. The attic is unfinished, fwiw. Can the cable rest...
