If it isn't stripped, then it has just went past the end of the thread. Get something inside to put some pressure on it while unscrewing. Should work.

I've never fixed a stripped one before. I was always thinking that there was too much going on in there.

The threads generally don't strip. I tried to explain what usually happens in an earlier post. The adjuster (screw) if it is wound in too far, can go beyond the threaded section on the inside of the valve. Compare it to the other one. If the screw head is 'deeper' then most likely that it what has happened.

If this is the case, there may be a bleed hole on the side of the valve where you can see the screw. It may be possible to put some pressure on it so that it relocates onto its threads.
