Hunter PGP won't rotate

Looking for ideas to remedy a Hunter PGP that will not rotate. It will pop-up and spray water but will not rotate side to side. I have tried to make an adjustments with no effect.

Am I looking at buying a replacement head?

Thanks....

The gears have failed or are stripped beyond repair. Leave the can, replace the body.

Maybe a local semantic??? Around here the can and the body are the same thing..... the outside shell. When we replace the insides it's aka "guts".

Its probably got some trash in it unless someone has stripped the gears. The PGP is pretty much bulletproof. Usually by the time you take it out, let it roll around in back of your truck and take it back the thing will be good again.
