Question about Hayward Navigator Pool Cleaner

Hayward Navigator Pool Cleaner Will Not Move

I replaced pads and still does not move. When held by hose in water unit does not turn. When I move one of the pods there is at least an inch of movement prior to other pod moving. Turbine does spin and pods are moving when water flows through unit. Do I need to replace Hayward Replacement Propulsion / Conversion Kit - AXV622DPK and/or gear box? Do the kits come with instructions or can I buy a manual? The serial number is 409D-016752.

The problem is that you have too much play in your drivetrain. You will need to check for movement between the pod and the a-arm and then between the a-arm and turbine. It would also be a good idea to check the turbine bearings. Find the loose fitting, worn part and that is your problem. As far as it not twisting on the end of the hose; this is most likely caused by the screen on the back of the unit being obstructed by debris or the gearbox assembly being jammed by debris that got through the screen or is just worn out. If you have any mechanical abilty you shoud be able to do these repairs yourself with the help of a downloadabe exploded diagram. If not call a pool repairman the parts are not really that expensive compared to the cost of a new unit.

Interesting question. Do you have the special Lead Hose, the one with a colored cuff attached to the Navigator itself? Other causes can be, too little or too much hose, a pinhole leak in one of the hoses above water causing the hoses to float, not enough suction on the Navigator. You didn't say if you have the Navigator plugged into a skimmer or in a dedicated suction port in the wall. I would first try increasing the suction to the unit and see if your problem doesn't go away.

My navigator will only move at a snells pace. I have changed every moving part also checked hoses and cleaned filter. I the skimmer and botom drain closed. what can I do to make it move faster.


With these pool cleaners, it is most likely slow or improper water flow through the cleaner. Check your water flow and adjust if necessary. I would also suggest that you check all of the things that you have already checked. The other problem would be that this cleaner might be the incorrect size for your pool, filter, and pump setup.

Make sure to keep the leaf canister and pump basket clear. Another thing to check is; make sure the screws that hold on the pods(the "flippers" on the sides) are Really tight. Those need to be cranked down pretty hard to ensure that they can move the cleaner along.

The Hayward Navigator pool sweep does not move. The pressure is 7.5, the suction seems to be okay, and the "flippers" move, but the pool sweep just sits there.


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.

You have either a bad or stuck gear box or a loose or damaged a frame bearing. The gear box controls turning and the a frame controls propulsion, but one bad bearing will cause the cleaner to move more in one direction, causing the hose to coil. You can hold the cleaner under the water by the top of the hose, and it should turn in all directions within a few minutes. If it doesn't, then it is the gearbox. If it does, then likely a problem with the a frames.

you need to install a turbine kit with "a" frames. sounds like your bearings are bad either on the turbine, "a " frames, or both. A set of shoes would be a good idea as well.

Hi my navigator only turns to the left and after an hour or so the hose is all twisted up and it cant move


This is probally in the gear box in the top of the unit. Most pool shops will rebuuild the cleaner for you for just the price of the parts or a small shop fee. They can check for any other problems at the same time.

Hayward pool cleaner wont move


sounds like the turbine or a-frame bearings are bad. A turbine kit with a-frames will be a solution. Also check the pod shoes for wear, should be a good 1/4" or better.
