It is very likely that it is stuck because there is some sediment or a 
piece of debris preventing the valve to fully seating. Only one 
solution: remove lid, inspect and clean (or, unlikely, repair worn 
needle/seat) and prevent debris to reach this spot by fitting a fuel 
filter near the carbs!!
Any other solution like tapping, fuel additive etc. is half hearted and 
not likely to last.
