I've given it a squirt of WD40, but it still won't turn over...

I find Gin is best to use in these circumstances. Some of the specialty ones are exceptional, my preferred ones being rhubarb or red grapefruit. Add a quality mixer with ice and a slice and the relaxing effect is paramount.

To turn it over you just get your hands under it and heave. :D
