Broken outside faucet

The handle to my outside water faucet just keeps turning forward and backwards.The water will not turn on.I took the screw out and tried to take the handle off but it won't come off,our house is only a year old. Please could someone help? This is very frustrating. Thanks

Could be a broken stem too. Might be cheaper instead of buying a handle puller to go buy a new hose bibb and just skip ahead to replacing the darn thing straight away.

Seems to me if the handle was broken, it'd come off pretty easy.
