Question about Hayward Navigator Pool Cleaner
Recently installed a propulsion kit, so basically the whole lower have of the vac is brand new. When I put it in the pool as soon as it hits the bottom, NOTHING, it just sits there. HELP
I am going to presume you are a seasoned user of this style of cleaner? If not, then a common mistake that new users make, is a simple fix. Understand that water flow via suction, will take the path of "Least Resistance"! Check to see & ensure if any other port of suction is closed down, you need the 'majority' of the suction (75% or more) to be at the port where the pool-vac hose is plugged into.

could be a number of problems. The most common problem is the turbine bearings have failed. You will have to disassemble it to check them. A fix is a turbine kit with A-frames. This kit has all the moving parts excluding the turn valve. If your cleaner is going around in circles and twisting the hose, its likely you have a bad bearing or so on either the turbine, a-frames or both.

You may need to replace the pads on the flippers. You can get new 'feet' for your cleaner at any dealer . They just pull off and press on, They go on only one way so check the tabs before you press them on.

It sounds like it might be a problem with your return pressure. Make sure that you are getting even pressure released on both sides of your automatic pool cleaner. Pick it up while it is on and see if you are getting more pressure on one side. If you are, adjust your valve. If you seem to be getting even pressure, it could be that you did not install the shoes or wings correctly. Check to be sure that both sides are installed properly and evenly.

The feet might be the problem, but more than likely, you have too much suction on the pool vac. There is a suction gauge that comes with all new cleaners and most pool stores will have them available (maybe as a loaner even) to allow you to adjust the suction to your pool cleaner.
Try adjusting your suction to your cleaner to reduce the amount of direct suction to the cleaner to see if it operates, but if your feet are worn, you should definitely replace them.
