SOURCE: barrcuda inground pool cleaner flips over

Often when you are having this problem with automatic pool cleaners, it has to do with the hose. Make sure that you have plenty of slack in the hose to cover the entire pool. Also, make sure that you do not have any obstructions in the hose and that it is not tangled.

SOURCE: Barracuda climbing walls almost to

There are several adapters on the market to allow more water to bypass the cleaner. One is called the Vac-Mate, another is the Hayward skimmer adapter. I personally like the vac-mate. but it's only compatible with most skimmers.

I have a frigidaire wall oven showing E r r f1 what is wrong no manual

Typically error code F1 could indicate a variety of issues. The wall oven could possibly have a runaway temp (higher than normal temps), shorted keypad, faulty EOC (Electronic Oven Control) or, display wire harness missing/not connected. Usually, this code means to replace the EOC. You may be able to reset the wall oven by disconnecting the power to the unit for up ten minutes. Usually this will clear most false error codes. You can disconnect power by either unplugging the unit or flipping the circuit breaker off and back on. If resetting the unit proves to be ineffective, I would recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately

Aquabot Turbo T2 flips over when it tries to climb walls. Water is not coming out the top but the unit is moving fine. Does it need a new pump motor or can something just be clogged inside??

the likely problem is the float/handle. Make sure it moves freely and is always in the straight up position when on the bottom of the pool. If it's not then it is the problem.

I put the eyeball diverter on my pool and the cleaner runs up to it and the hose hangs on it. I keep my hose laying out strait when not in use. It does seem to stay on the sides also.

If the eyeball diverter is not working, you might need to install a wall climb adjuster (Part #K12065). This will keep the automatic pool cleaner on the pool's floor and walls and away from pool obstructions. Make sure the narrow end of the wall climb adjuster points down to the drive tubes.

The barracuda just returns to the deep end of the pool and stays there, how can I get the cuda to sweep the whole pool?

The Barracuda Zippy is an Above Ground pool cleaner and is not designed for a pool that does not have a flat bottom. They are generally not capable of climbing slopes, walls, etc.

Barracuda x7 quattro won't go to the shallow end of the pool

Zodiac X7 only 4 months have problems with Parts, had to replace all lower parts and now the flex hose fitting is bad.
I believe this design is a lemon.

How to hookup side exhaust vent on a Kenmore dryer?

Go to a hardware store and ask for a dryer hook-up kit. You can run the vent to an outside source through a wall or if needed you can exit the exhaust through a roof although I would not do this unless it was the last resort. Instructions for the dryer hook-up are included with the materials.
It consist of connecting a vent hose usually 4 inches to the dryer outlet and running the hose usually a flex hose to another outlet that vents the dryer air outside. The outside connection should have a door that closes when the dryer is not in use to keep rodents and pest out.

AF flashing on our Whirpool Cabrio Dryer.

Hi Terry,

AF flashes if a restricted airflow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place and the vent is not
I suspect it's the vent connecting the dryer to the wall or the vent pipe in the wall to the outside. Without moving your dryer, look behind it to see if the flex duct is crushed or pinched. If it is, it's pinching off your air flow, too. Pull the dryer out straighten or replace the hose (you can get vent hose at Home Depot, Lowes or Ace Hardware) then slide the dryer back being careful to keep it about 8" from the wall (8" is the recommended distance from the back of the dryer to the wall, btw).
If the flex vent is NOT pinched off, then you should call a chimney sweep to come out and clean the vent pipe that's in the wall.

*Note---> If you want to test this diagnosis to verify it, just disconnect the flex hose from the wall and run a load of clothes. The error code should not reappear.
