Probably an O-ring failure or some such thing.

What chemicals did you use last year? Esters are a bit tough on rubber. O-ring could have become swollen and twisted sideways when you move the adjustment knob in and out.

Pendulum 3.3 is also rough on seals as well. I recognize that pressure regulator as a Teejet 23120. If you have the standard o rings instead of the Viton ones, those will get eaten up by the more active lawn chemicals.
