Intermatic pump timer gets stuck changing the day on the skipper wheel

I control my irrigation pump with an Intermatic R8816P101C, and the timer mechanism doesn't work properly. Around 8pm, the yellow wheel stops rotating, and gets stuck at the point when the peg that rotates the skipper wheel makes contact with the skipper wheel.

What could be causing it? A bad motor? Dust or dirt in the skipper wheel?
