Cleaner doesn't back up.

1. Verify the back up valve is cycling on and off by pulling the valve from the water and checking the thrust jet.
2. Ensure back up valve is inastalled properly (facing the backward direction).
Note: If the valve is on backward it will either run constantly or won't engage at all. This applies to all pressure side models (180, 280, 360, 380, 3900, 480).
3. Ensure hose floats are positioned properly, with one directly behind the back up valve.
4. Check the wheel RPM. If not in the 30-36 RPM range, refer to the manual for adjusting the wheel RPM.
5. If the filter bag is full, empty or replace.
6. Make sure feed hose is floating.

Cleaner doesn't clean entire pool or stays at one end.

1. Verify that the feed hose is within 6" (further or shorter) than the farthest point of the pool.
2. Check the brass insert on the single side wheel. If it has come loose, replace it.
3. Verify the thrust jet is in the correct position.
4. Check to see if drive chain has disengaged.
5. Ensure the backup valve is cycling.

Cleaner doesn't climb walls.

1. Make sure that the blue reducing disk has not been installed in the quick disconnect.
2. Check that the metal pre-filter is present and not clogged.
3. Make sure that the hose weight adjustment nut is screwed down correctly.
4. Make sure the hoses have been cut as indicated in the instructions.
5. Check that the booster pump is working normally.
6. Check that the wheels are turning between 28 and 34 times per minute.
7. Check that the pivoting connectors are fitted the right way round.
8. Check the orientation of the rear drive jet.
9. Replace standard tires with tires for tiled or glass surfaces (Ref. C-136).

Cleaner hangs up on steps or other obstacles for longer than 3 minutes.

1. Check the wheel RPM's.
2. Verify the backup valve is cycling. Lift the valve out of the water and watch the jet. It should come on and turn off.
3. Adjust the thrust jet.
4. Remove unnecessary pool hardware or install a ladder guard (part # G21)

Cleaner is floating.

1. Check for air in the filter bag. (presence of air indicates a suction side air leak. It's also common for the system to purge air if solar is being used.
2. Ensure the backup valve isn't running constantly.
3. Ensure proper placement of the hose floats. Ensure there is no hose float between the backup valve and cleaner head.

Cleaner is not moving.

1. Check wheel RPM and pressure to verify proper flow.
2. Check to see if drive chain has disengaged.
3. Check inline filter screen for blockage.
4. Check the water management system for obstrcutions.

Cleaner is not picking up debris.

1. Ensure cleaner is running with proper flow.
2. Check the water management jets for obstructions. Use a paper clip to remove debris from jets if necessary.
3. Ensure filter bag is empty.

Cleaner is only moving in one direction or running in circles. Cleaner falls over.

1. Check the filter bag. If it's fullit can weigh the cleaner down on one side. Empty or replace the bag.
2. Verify the thrust jet is at the 7 O'clock position.
3. Check the brass insert on the single side wheel. If it has come loose, replace and check the wheel for proper operation.
4. Check feed hose to ensure the floats are spaced evenly.
5. Check for water inside the head float.
6. Check the wheel RPM. If more than 36, make an adjustment to reduce the flow.

Cleaner is sluggish, running with less power than normal.

1. Check the filter screen in the inline filter assembly on the hose and clean if necessary.
2. Ensure the skimmer basket, pump basket and pool filter are clean.
3. Check hoses, hose connections, backup valve and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure.
4. Check the wheel RPM. If below 30 RPM, see the wheel RPM adjustment process in the manual to increase flow to the cleaner.
5. Ensure drive chain is engaged.
6. Ensure bearings are clear from debris. Replace if worn.
7. Change or remove restrictor disk if necessary.

Cleaner races around the pool or doesn't make contact with the pool bottom.

1. Check the wheel RPM. If more than 36, make an adjustment to reduce the flow.
2. Verify the backup valve is cycling.

Cleaner seems to slide over the tiles.

1. Turn the appliance over and check the suction by making sure that all the jets located in the central pipework are working correctly. If they aren’t, make sure they are not blocked.
2. Fit the special tires for smooth tiled surfaces (Ref. C-13).

Front end of the cleaner lifts all the time.

1. Check the wheel RPM. If not in the 30-36 RPM range, refer to the manual for adjusting the wheel RPM.
2. Adjust the thrust jet downward.

4. Check for water inside the head float.
5. Empty the filter bag.

Sweep hose is being sucked into the vacuum tube.

1. Ensure the opening at the end of the sweep hose is not blocked by the sweep hose scrubber. Replace the scrubber if worn or missing.
2. Check the wheel RPM. If more than 36, make an adjustment to reduce the flow.
3. Add a sweep hose weight. (part number B2)

Sweep hose sprays water out of the pool.

1. Adjust the flow to the speed hose using the easy click settings or the adjustment screw.
2. Replace the scrubber if it is worn or missing.
3. Pull the sweep hose scrubber down to cover more of the tip of the hose.
4. Add a sweep hose weight. (part number B2)

The hose is tangling.

1. Remeasure the hose to verify that it's adjusted to the proper length for the pool.
2. With the cleaner operating, check that the swivels and hose connections turn freely.
3. Make sure the feed hose is floating.
4. With the cleaner operating, hold the cleaner under water and verify that all three wheels are turning together.
