Correct.  The rest position for the valve is with the vane actually
past what would be fully closed; if the valve were to be activated
slightly, -then- it would fully close.  Further turning of the vane
would start opening it, on a different edge.

Nope, they never need adjustment after being assembled...they either
get gummed up, or die.  Have you also considered a wiring problem?
