My problem is after claibration i receive a message POWER OFF AND CHECK PRINTHEAD CLEANER PATH


Something is blocking the printhead cleaner assembly from moving forward and backward.
Turn the plotter off, open the printhead cleaner access cover (RH side) and see if you can move the cleaners to the front of the machine.
If you can move them fairly easily, then try (with the plotter still off) to move the carriage assembly (holds the printheads) to the left of the machine.
Check the condition of the carriage belt for frayed areas or missing belt teeth.
(I suspect a worn out carriage belt is causing the problem)
With the cleaner assembly to the front, and the carriage to the left, turn the plotter back on and see if the error continues.

My pool cleaner only sweeps the deep water zone. It never comes up to the shallow half part of the pool. By the way, the approximate size of my pool is 18 ft x 36 ft.


This should be an easy problem to fix with this type of automatic pool cleaner. Add return diverters or divert return inlets downward. This will use flow to move cleaner to opposite end. Move hose weight away from cleaner head slightly. You might also have to add additional hose weights.

Our dirt devil pool cleaner keeps sticking to the pool floor and will not move around, what do we need to do?


Make sure that your unifram is installed with the opening in a vertical position. If it is horizontal, you pool cleaners line will not have proper suction. You will also want to check for obstructions in the flapper that would cause the cleaner to not move properly. Finally, make sure that this is the proper cleaner for your pool size. If you have an in ground or very large above ground pool, it is possible that the pump you are operating with is too strong for the cleaner to move properly.

Why does my pool cleaner turn upside down? how can i fix it?


Try adjusting your hose weights to see if that corrects the problem. When your cleaner is resting on the bottom of the pool, it should be at 45 degree angle. If it is tilting back toward the hose, try moving the weights closer to the cleaner. If it is tilting forward, try moving the weights away from the cleaner. You might also need to add more hose weight. If the pool cleaner does not have enough weight to hold it down, it will float. You will also want to make sure that you have adequate water flow through the cleaner.

Hayward Navigator just had shoes and wings replaced. Everything seems to be working but moves extremely slow, even when suction is increased.


Did you have the turbine and A-Frame inspected or the gear box at the back of the cleaner looked at? Hayward Navigators are 100% repairable and most every pool store carries every single part to make the repairs. If these parts are also worn down, you will notice performance issues with your cleaner.
Before we assume the worst, lets run the cleaner through a few inspections.
Simple Troubleshooting for your Hayward Navigator When It Is Not Moving

The most common reason the Hayward Navigator stops moving is there is something blocking the mouth of the cleaner. Pull the cleaner out of the water while the equipment is turned off and make sure the cleaner is not clogged with debris or plugged with a pool toy. Also, make sure that all the internal components are properly installed.


Not Enough Suction - Next, verify that there is enough suction to allow the cleaner to work properly. While the pool equipment is on, lift the Hayward Navigator to just below the surface of the water and feel to see if there is a reasonable amount of suction getting to the cleaner. If there doesn't seem to be enough pressure, make sure all baskets are clear of debris, the main pool filter is clean, and that the diverter valve is open to the pool cleaner.


Small Debris Inside the Navigator - If there seems to be enough suction getting to the Navigator, but the pods are not moving back and forth, there is probably some small debris inside the cleaner that is stopping the turbine from moving. In order to remove any debris from inside the cleaner, remove the small access cover from the bottom of the cleaner by loosening the one screw until the plate pulls off. Use your fingers or the hose to clean the inside of the cleaner out.


If following these simple troubleshooting tips doesn't correct your cleaner issue, there is probably a mechanical issue. Take your cleaner into a local swimming pool retailer or have a service company out to assist (though most pool stores will not ever charge you for labor to make repairs!)



Thank you for posting your question on Fix Ya! I hope to have been of some help to you regarding this issue and if you need some additional clarification, please feel free to let me know what happened with your cleaner! We also appreciate your feedback in letting the world know if you were satisfied with our help!

Even with good pressure the cleaner barely moves


If you are sure that you have adequate pressure (main drain closed, no leakage, proper flow), it is probably your diaphragm. Check the diaphragm for damage or wear. If you see that there is damage or wear, replace the part. This should solve the problem with the pool cleaner.

MY POOL CLEANER WILL RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES, THEN STOP. SO METIMES IF I SHAKE THE HOSE IT WILL START AGAIN. ANY ANSWERS?


Hi , most pool cleaners run by the force of the sucked up water moving gears inside the cleaner .. if yours is this way, then any blockage in the cleaner or in the hose attached would restrict the flow and keep the cleaner from moving.

The cleaner doesn't move well, but the hose is fine and the suction is great. everything is moving on the cleaner.


Check the rubber shoes on the pods. They have a wear line showing when they need to be replaced
