    Quick question Please ..My kids were playing in the sprinklers this weekend and I saw one of the kids turn the rotating spray heads the direction it was not currently going and now it will not turn at all. I was trying to fix it when it was on but just keeps spinning. Do you think they broke the gears? Its a rain-bird 5000 or 9000 Is this a quick fix or a trip to the home improvement store? Thanks

    The old 5000 series would stop spinning properly if you looked at them funny.

    Time for a new one.

    The gears are probably stripped. Replace it.
