I don't think there's a fix. I remember when the Stan's system first came out, he cautioned that the valve stem could tear away and it was not repairable, so he advised to be careful when inflating. I think they're more reinforced now than they were originally. FWIW, I've been using mine since '02, I've never had the problem. The valve stems come with replaceable valve cores now, too, so if the core wears out or gets too gummed up, you can replace it without having to replace the whole rim strip-
