Turn the valve so that the flat part goes across the direction of the water flow through the pipe.
from the valve past, fowing in the direction of the liquid or gas. example: water supply coming from the street to your house, enters your house where your main water shut off is. then the water is distributed through your house to different fixtures. downstream of your main shut off would be everything past that valve in the direction the water is flowing, or all water lines IN your house.
If the shut off valve turns but does not shut the water off, the washer in it has split and probably made it to the faucet. It was blocking part of the hole on the hot side and at some point either shifted or made it through the faucet and in in the screen in the end of the spout. Shut the main water off and replace the washer in the shut off valve.
I'm not being stupid, you just change it. How ever it is installed, threaded on, sweated or compression fitting, remove and replace. I'm assuming water. There is another shut off valve further down the line. If it is the main shut off in the house, there is one at the meter. Shut the water off, drain the pipes and change it.
In every home thee are a number of shut-off valves. Where the water pipe enters the house is the main shut off, usually beside the PRV, a bell shaped device for regulating the house pressure. This main cold line will then branch off to the water heater, bathrooms and kitchen. Each faucet and the water heater and the toilet will have a shut-off valve. The hot water line comes out of the top of the heater and goes to bathrooms and kitchen. Each hot faucet also has a shut-off valve under it.
Check with your manufacturer. My (ancient) mobile home has a small metal placard affixed on the outside that says "water intake", which is where it is located (under the home). Newer models have a valve inside the home, but the location varies. Check near the shut off valve for the hot water heater.
