Verify that the feed hose is within six inches (farther or shorter) than the farthest point of the pool: If it’s too long, cut the hose according to the instructions in the owner’s manual. If it’s too short, add a feed hose section, a swivel and two hose nuts and adjust it to the proper length.

Check the brass insert on the single side wheel: If it has come loose, replace it.

Verify the thrust jet is in the correct position: The factory setting for the thrust jet position is 7 o’clock, but depending on your pool, other settings might be helpful to improve your cleaner’s coverage.

Check to see if the drive chain has disengaged: If so, this might be your issue.

Ensure the back-up valve is cycling: Lift the valve out of the water and watch the jet. It should alternate between on and off.

Check the wheel RPMs: The wheel should operate between 30-36 RPM. To check the RPM, mark the single-wheel side tire. Then, turn the pump on, and hold the cleaner below water level. Count the wheel revolutions for one minute to determine the current RPM.
