SOURCE: My Pentair legend pool cleaner is not moving

On this automatic pool cleaner, this is usually an easy thing to fix. First, make sure that your filter bag is clean and free of obstructions. Next, take of your head float and shake it. If you can hear water inside, you will need to order a new head float and install it. They are usually inexpensive and easy to replace. Make sure the hose floats are evenly placed and make sure that the cleaner is not getting too much pressure from the return lines.

SOURCE: legend 2 pool cleaner auto back-up feature stopped working

Make sure you have a clean filter and clean wall fitting screen. Pull hose out of water and lay it so you can watch the back-up mode go through its mode. The housing might be crack and have a leak which might not give the valve enough power.

SOURCE: my wheels wont move

Check to make sure that you do not have a blocked impeller. I would also check to make sure that you dont have something stuck in your drive train. The only other thing that could cause an issue with these pool cleaners is if you are not getting sufficient water flow.

SOURCE: Platinum Legend pool cleaner get

Unfortunately, this is a construction issue and not something that will be easily corrected with the pool cleaner.
Depending on the location of the port for the cleaner, you might consider shortening the hose so that the cleaner cannot make it to the barstools, but if you are like most homeowners, the barstools were built at a point in the pool that if your shorten the hose, the cleaner will not reach the rest of the pool.
To be honest, we run into this a lot and had your builder made a few alterations, this would not have become an issue.
At this point the only "true" solutions are as follows: #1) Find something that can anchor to the floor of the pool that keeps the cleaner from having access behind the table pedastal(s). #2) Discontinue using the cleaner #3) Remove the table
None of these are "great" suggestions and are probably not feasible, so option #4: live with it!
Thank you for submitting your question. Sorry we do not have a better alternative solution!

It flips on it's side, then goes around in circles and will not stand back up on the wheels. It's a Letro Lengend about 7 years old.

replace the float. It looks like a 3"x5" white or grey thing on the back just below the bag. Remove by unscrewing motion as you pull out.

My Polaris 3900 Sport is on it's side. I turn it back up on all 3 wheels and it hits the side of the pool and goes back on it's side again...going in circles.

With these automatic pool cleaners, if they are not staying firmly on the bottom of the pool, it is most likely that there is air in the appliance casing.Try submerging your cleaner. Keep the cleaner vertical while you are putting it in slowly to let the air out. Ensure the unit sinks to the bottom of the pool.

Pentair Legend with boster pump dosent stay on bottom of pool. Seems to float near top of pool more than it does staying on bottom when its suppose to be cleaning.

Make sure that your wheel RPM is not greater than 32. If the RPM is too high, the cleaner will be forced from the bottom of the pool. Make sure that your back up valve is cycling properly because it, too, can cause the cleaner to lose contact with the floor. You might need to use a diverter to make sure that the pool cleaners not getting too much pressure.

Cleaner not staying on bottom, its goes in circles but never reaches bottom

Check your wheel RPM and make sure that it is not more than 32. If the pool cleaners RPM are too high, it can cause the wheels to lose contact with the bottom of the pool. Make sure that the back up valve is cycling and working properly. If it is in the incorrect position, it could be thrusting the cleaner upward and away from the bottom. You may also need to adjust the water flow diverter to make sure that you are not receiving too much water.

My polaris 3900 moves across the pool with the front wheel of the bottom, the wheel on the 1 wheel side and the back wheel are on the bottom.

Check your wheel RPM. If the pool cleaners RPM is over 32, reduce the water flow so that the cleaner makes proper contact with the pool's surface. Verify the back-up valve is cycling. Lift the valve out of
the water and watch the jet. It should come on and go off. You might also need to adjust your thrust jet if it is causing the cleaner to lean too far to one side.
