RB 1804 sticking up

Of the 40+ 1804's I installed, three are trying to be lawnmower kill, not fully retracting at the end watering cycle. Spring appears to be good as I barely touch and they snap closed. Any suggestions. Totally disassemble and clean? Spray shaft with silicone or graphite?

Currently just testing coverage and filling in the last trench today. This weekend will kill all vegitation with roundup, then till. In a couple od weeks will lay 18 pallets of sod and correctly set depth of rotors and pop-ups, raising for sod level. Would like to get the pop-up retraction issue resolved by then.
