Question about Polaris 380 In Ground Pool Cleaner
My Polaris 380 is circling in a pretty tight loop, going to the right all the time. I just replaced the tires and drive belts, so the wheels seem to be working well. The float seems OK (no water in it when I shake it). I adjusted the jet on the back to compensate to push it left, but it doesn't seem to matter.
Replace the belts.($30) Tighten with an 1/8" play. Also check the wheel bearings. If the wheels wobble they also need to be replaced

If the wheels don't turn there may be sand in the notches on the wheels, the notches may be worn off, if their is sand or dirt in the paddel wheel jet that will keep the unit from turning and again no wheel movement. All of these problems they can check in your local pool store. Stores will generely check your unit out and fix what is needed for just the price of parts to fix it when you bring it into the store.
If you have no water flow to the unit this will also stop things from working so be sure to check your finger screen before you do anything.

The drive belts are loose. Replace the drive belts are at least take the cover off inspect and tighten. The adjustments are the axle blocks. Tighten to where there is about an 1/8" tension while lightly pushing on the belt.

I had a similar issue. When I lifted the unit out of the water while it was operating only the single wheel was rotating. I turned it off and removed the bag and hose. I flipped it over on a workbench and unscrewed the three recessing screws securing the base plate. Once the plate was removed I noticed the metal chain driving the two wheels had come off on the far side of the inner sprocket. I worked the chain back onto the sprocket and tested it by rotating the single wheel and verifying the other two wheels rotated. After reassembly I put the unit back in the pool and it drove straight and high on the sides. Hope this helps someone :-)
