Pentair Legend fell on side before because the float was, indeed, filled with water - not this time... Any suggestions? Bag is clean and seems to be weighted properly.

Have you looked at the swivels in the hose? If they get stuck, it can cause the tipping over. Check the wear on the tires also.

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.

Our three year old Legend keeps tipping over while

Sounds like the head float just below the debris bag is bad. Check to see if it has water in it. If so then replace it. That float helps keep it upright.

Legend frequently lies on it's side when not running and occasionally when it is. Bag is not full

Check the float on the unit and I believe you will find it full of water and will need to replace.

The valve is called a back up valve but that jet of water just hauls the cleaner out of corners, but the unit itself dosen't back up.

Pentair Legend Platinum Falls on it's Side

This condition often is due to bag being heavy with sediment or the ballast float on head has water in it. Try removing the head float and listen fot the sound of water while shaking it. If audible, replace float.
