If this is the standard Winegard Sensar antenna...I've had the crank handle come off a couple times too. It does make a difference how far the handle is up on the hex shaft. If too far up you won't be able to pull the ring down far enough to clear the detents and be able to rotate the antenna. The set screw into that plastic handle needs a gentle touch in tightening or the threads will strip out. The setscrew is probably contacting in the last 1/4" of the shaft

I tried your plan jeff64. I loosened set screw tried tightened a little still nothing. I even stated from scratch when handle and disk came off. Antenna goes up and down no problem but it cannot be turned with disc.

Sometimes when I rotate my TV antenna it gets hung up on my radio antenna. Have you physically looked at your antenna on the roof to see what's going on?

I am still saying, crawl up on the roof and spray/soak the bearing with some silicon.
