Hunter X-core sc-800i dialer on controller malfunctioning

My x-core controller is approximately 4 years old and seems to now have a problem with the dial. When I try to turn the dial backward or forwards it seems that it is stuck and I have to apply force to turn it to a selected option. Moreover, the option I select isn't the one listed on the display. For example, when I have the dialer set at manual station and I chose the station I want to manually run using the keypad, I turn the dial to "Run" but what I have on the display is 2016 flashing (seems like this is the current time/day option). The dialer is somehow not correlating with the option selected. The sprinkler system still runs fine. Any suggestions to repair the dialer on controller or am I going to have to bite the bullet and get the entire controller replaced?

Sounds like it is time for a replacement. The dial is always the first thing to go.
