    Plenty of pressure
    Brand new
    Valve is clear
    3 heads on valve

    But the impact sprinkler won't rotate forward...what am I missing?

    Is it just one maxi? Are the collar adjustments set right? Does it rotate one way and then won't go back? Need more info.

    What if you had to set the Maxi-Paw on some kind of platform? Would you call it a Maxi-Pad?

    Check flapper arm for debris, clean out orfus with flag.
    Check return mechanism for debris, clean out with flag.
    Change spring setting on return mechanism.
    Stomp on while head is running until broken.
    Replace with good quality gear driven rotor.

    Just one of the sprinklers will not rotate.

    Rotates the return, but not the forward.

    Collar adjustment are correct.

    I would like to stomp on it.

    So, install one of the spares you bought and kick the dud out of there. If you have no spares, kick yourself.

    I can put in a replacement, but what if it isn't a dud.

    I am double checking that I am not missing anything.
