Question about Jandy Ray Vac Pool Cleaner for Inground Concrete

Jandy Ray Vac pulls floats backward quickly constantly

I have a 3 year old Jandy Ray Vac and it isn't pushing forward like it should. I put it in the water and it rarely goes to the floor of the pool. It's like the backup jet keeps pulling it backward. I don't understand why. Help?

Ray vac pool cleaner seems to lack enough power to stay on the wall


Clean the bottom screen first.
Where the hose hooks to the wall you have a finger screen either in the wall or sticking out of the wall. Ether way pull that out and clean it.
Chech all of your hose floats and jet's make sure none leak and check the float inside the head. Good luck.

Ray vac will not go in reverse, what is wrong


Your backup valve has probally gone bad. You just need to pull this out of the line and take it to a pool store and have the internal replaced. They will do this for just the price of the part in most places.

Cleaner floats at the bottom of the pool and does not sit on the bottom or go forward


On these automatic pool cleaners, the finger screen or energy filter being blocked/clogged is often to blame for the cleaner not moving properly. Check them and clean if they look blocked. You will also want to check for a hole in hose that would cause it to lose pressure. Also, check to make sure that the transporter jet is not plugged.

If your automatic pool cleaner is going in circles, you might want to check your backup hydro-timer. If it is releasing most of the water out of the discharge hoke, you might need to replace the defective jet gear assembly. Also, make sure that the transporter jet is not plugged. Check your hose to make sure that there are not any obstructions that would prevent proper movement.

What model is it? Is it robotic (indepentdent of your pump and filter)? If it is attached to your pump system, it could be the cord getting tangled and causing the pool cleaner to move in circles. You might want to consider running it when you are available to watch it or getting a robotic cleaner that you can set to operate at certain times. You might just need to check the hose for defects that would cause it tangle.

My Ray Vac is also floating in a nose dive position. I ajusted flow valve, speed,cleaned filters and nothing works Please help


You have a head float inside the head that has probally cracked and filled with water. You can take this apart yourself or your pool store will probally do this for you for just the price of the part. Then they can look over the whole thing for you. Just remove the head and bring it into the store. Good luck.

My Ray Vac is 2 years old. What is their average


You should be able to get your pool shop to rebuild this for you, usually just for the cost of parts. Then you should take it in to them once a year to be checked as prevention is worth more than cure. Good luck.

Runs in a small circle


A couple of things to check. 1. sometimes the hose at the back of the head will develop a small hole or crack where water will escape and cause the vac to run in circles.
2. if the head is getting old, you might have enough wear that the little wheels on the bottom stay mostly in one location, pushing in one directon.

I cant adjust the minite hand backwards if the watch is gaining


Unfortunately your watch do not have reverse action, so, you have to go all the way forwards till you reach designated time again.
One more way how to set the right time is to disconnect the battery and wait till the real time reaches the hands of your watch, then put battery back and set again. If watch has a STOP function (crown pulled out), then you don't have to disconnect the battery- just pull out crown and wait.
By the way: pushing the button in accelerates minute hand constantly, but if you'll push the button rapidly, it will move mimnute hand bit by bit. Use this feature to set desired time more precisely.
Do not forget to rate, please.
