Erratic Rainbird sprinkler head


I have a popup sprinkler head that occasionally will do a 360deg revolution. The normal pattern is about 180deg. WHen it goes 360 is sprays my neighbors house. Any ideas?

The controller has nothing to do with 'weak' zones. Make sure the water is completely turned on.
