My hurlcon CX 240 pool pump has good return pressure but very low suction from the pool and wont opperate the kreepy krawly, Do I need a new pump? Thanks. Richard

what you may have is a blocked outlet--filter --tap incorrectly set
good pressure but no suction indicates that the pump is pumping but the pumped water has nowhere to go

My Kreepy has a Starfish seal on it. It is being used in a pebble tec pool. I bought it new less than a year ago. Here are my problems...The Kreepy is getting stuck by my stairs (they are more like...

If the cleaner is getting stuck on objects (steps, ladder, corners, benches, etc), you need to remove the dive float restrictor and install a wall climb adjuster. It is part number K12065. Anyone that sells Pentair products should have one. This will keep your pool cleaner from becoming stuck. It might also help with the seal problem, but that is most likely something caught in the flapper. Check to be sure that the pool cleaners getting proper flow and that the flapper is clear of debris.

I have great water pressure in my pool, but the minute I attach my Kreepy Krawly, the pressure drops and there is a large vacuum in the pump reservoir. the Kreepy hardly moves at all thereafter.

It sounds like your you might not have all of your suction lines closed. Check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached. If this is not the problem, it could be that the pool pump and filter system that you have may be too small It should be capable of providing at least 25 gallons per minute. These are common issues with these pool cleaners.

I took my creepy apart and I can't get it back together. Could I have a schematic?

Your picture says that you have a baracuda, but if you have a kreepy I can help. Here is the owners manual for the Kreepy Krawly. These automatic pool cleaners are not hard to get back together with instructions.

My Kreepy Krawly always gets stuck!

You will get a current going in the pool that will drive the cleaner into some spots that it can't get out of. The steps are a good spot for this.
If you move the return eyeballs around usually point them down this will help. This will stop any action on the surface of the pool as far as pushing things into the skimmer but the action of the hose jiggeling should help to break the surface tention of the pool and get leaves and such to sink so the cleaner to pick them up.
If you don't have eyeball returns then you can get dirveters that slide into the return lines to break these currents for you.
Hope this helps and good luck.
