The bag is supported by the jet of water shooting into it. When the pump stops, the jet stops and the bag should fall over sideways, retaining the leaves. I'm curious, Letro was bought out by Pentair 10+ years ago and the Jet Vac was discontinued. Also the description says that this cleaner runs without a booster pump. Every Jet Vac I have ever met runs with a booster pump. Are you sure the installation is correct?

Bought last year can not start

Is it new gas you are using? If you left the gas in from last year you may have a gummed up carburater. If you have a fuel cup on the bottom of the carb take it off and clean it up also cleaning the fuel jet as well. If the jet is dirty it will not run. When you remove the cup be careful the float does not come down too far or the gadget that the float works may fall out.

My Royal bath tub leaves residue each time I use it. How can I stop this

There are several options for cleaning the piping on a jetted bathtub.
The reason you have a residue on the bathtub surface when you are done bathing is because there is bacteria built up in the plumbing of the jetted tub. In order to remove that and reduce the amount of "yucky stuff" coming into the tub when using it, we recommend a regular usage of a jet cleaning product about once every couple of months
Here is a link to the cleaning products I can find right now. There may be other out there that I am not aware of but I do know these products work well in all jetted bathtubs.

Pool cleaner will vaccuum but no movement in pool. plenty of water pressure going thru back hose

Before doing anything, take the Jet Vac out of the pool and set it on the deck. Stand clear and turn it on. It should have enough water going through the blue jet to spray several feet and propel the jet vac on dry land.

What propels the Jet Vac is not the water going through the hose, but the water going through the little blue Jet under the Hose. You can unscrew this from the bottom of the shell and clean out any obstructions. Also, check the screen at the connection where the hose meets the wall. It is located in the white valve with the red button on it right at the pool wall. It will unscrew from the wall of the pool with the system off. Also make sure the booster pump is coming on.

Also, it may be stuck in reverse or neutral. If this is the case there will be jets of water shooting forward of the jet vac when it is on dry land.

It will start then shortly after running it will stop running

As I was flying by your page, I’ve noticed that you have not heard of a better and safer method of cleaning out your rain gutters. May I please intrude on your privacy and tell you what I’ve seen as I’ve been breezing by? Thank you. Now, you can clean out your rain gutters with a new designed wet/dry vac tool called a “Gutter Clutter Buster” and stay firmly on the ground while you are cleaning. No more worries from me that you are about to fall off that ladder or that you are getting drowned from a water wand or water hose, or that you have debris blowing all over you, into your eyes, your mouth, etc. and your newly cleaned windows and roof from the blower you were using. Now, I can stop for a moment and take a heavenly breath of fresh air as I know you will want to check this new tool out and see how safe you will be while cleaning out your rain gutters the next time. I’ll just have to fly out of here and go on to the next site to see who may need the wind below my wings to get them started again. Bye, bye and fly straight, fly safe, and fly well.

Doesn't clean well. Leaves dirt, etc on dishes.

this is not a lack in the machine but it sounds like you are not using soap/tablets. if you are using soap switch to tablets (such as affresh) and use a rinse agent (like jet dry). good luck with this problem! hope this solution works

The bag indicator shows full but the bag is empty

In my bag vac, I have found that when the light shows the bag is full when its not that there is something between where it sucks into the vac to where it empties into the bag...maybe cat hair, dog hair....etc. Try removing the bag and running it, this may allow the air to flow alittle faster and force out the jam. You may also try removing the bottom of the vac, usually just a few screws, and checking to see if you can see the jam. What is happening is this jam is slowing down the air flow and the vac thinks the bag is full....also check the filter where the air leaves the bag area...also look where the bag connects, sometimes trash can hang there.....good luck

I have the problem of the circling Ray Vac. And I haven't seen any solutions here. What's wrong, and what do I have o do to fix it?

PRESSURE is King. After taking apart my entire Ray-Vac and hoses, nothing seemed to fix my circling problem. I finally performed a full cleaning of all my mechanicals, especially the paper filter. I noticed a significant improvement in my water pressure and my Ray-Vac starting running all over the pool again doing her job like she used to. So, the Ray-Vac is very sensitive to water/jet pressure. Check your filter system. You want the most pressure you can get of out jet where you connect the Ray-Vac. This completely solved my problem.
