Sounds like the sealing rings for the arms have perrished and are jamming the arms as well as allowing the water to bypass.

My John Deere traveling sprinkler is moving backwards all of a sudden. How do I get it to go forwards


The wheels are driven by the spinning of the water wand. Turning the tips so the wand spins either clockwise or counter clockwise will determine which direction your sprinkler will travel. If it's going backwards, turn the tips so the wand spins in the opposite direction it is spinning now.

Have a John Deer traveling sprinkler that's 3 weeks old. It doesn't travel anymore. It just sits in one place. Why did I spend $75 for this?


Because it looked cool, more then likely you will need to take it apart and fix it, or if you still have the sales receipt exchange it for a new one. Good Luck Tim
