SOURCE: my polaris 280 moves around

This can be caused by either by minimal or no water being delivered by the vacuum jets or something plugging the path to the bag. I assume you have checked the path to the bag so it is probably the first cause. The best way to check this is to turn the pump on while the cleaner is in the pool, pull the cleaner to the side of the pool, pinch off the hose just before the backup device and lift the cleaner onto the deck. Some water should be coming out of the rear jet and the tail. If you remove the bag and look down through the cleaner you should see the two jets that shoot water up. If you stand back and unpinch the hose and the water doesn't come up way above where the top of the bag would be then either you have plugged jets or the hoses inside the cleaner are disconnected. I suggest the latter because if the jets were plugged I would expect the jet that turns the wheels would be plugged also. If you don't feel competent taking it apart then bring it to Leslies Pool Supplies and they usually can open it up while you watch and repair it for the cost of parts. By watching them you may learn enough to be able to do it yourself the next time. I hope this helps.

My polaris 280 moves around just fine and the sweeper hose is functioning properly. only issue is that it's not sucking anything up in the bag.

If the unit travels normally and picks up debris as it should,there may be a problem with a feed hose inside . Separate the haed shell and inspect. often the plastic clamps finally give out and allow hose to pop off. Also check inner hoses for any swelling and possible slits.If the unit doesn't act in a friendly way then you have water supply issues and/or inadequate water pressure to unit. Check stream from wall with unit disconnected.
