Tapping it on top can sometimes unstick the valve. If it was stuck it won't last long though. If you put the heat on and it is blowing cold, then tap on the top of the HCV and the air suddenly blows hot, it is a good sign that it is the HCV that is bad. The tapping is just a temporary fix and will narrow down the issue.
