If you loosen the screw that holds the handle to the top of the actuator, you can push down on the screw and it will (should) disengage the gear drive in the actuator. That will allow you to move the valve. If the actuator is actually bad, any actuator made for operating Jandy valves can be used... You may have a power issue as well, no power and the valve ...
Fluid flow across a valve wears away (erodes) valve components. The closure components (the valve seat and disc) are components of concern because the ability to effect tight closure is affected by that erosion. Globe valves are designed for regulating flow, the fluid travel path is designed to cause even wear to the closure components when the valve is open ...
