This is probally in the gear box in the top of the unit. Most pool shops will rebuuild the cleaner for you for just the price of the parts or a small shop fee. They can check for any other problems at the same time.

This is a common problem with the Navigator. If you grab the part sticking out where the lead hose attaches to the unit, you should be able to turn it fairly easily with your hand. This is the swivel that is supposed to keep the hoses from getting twisted. When you take the unit apart, you will find a large gear plate with teeth that controls the swivel action. All it takes is one leaf or small rock to jam this plate solid and then there is no swivel action and the hose twists. Leslies should have know all about this.

New pool cleaner , pool hose just keeps twisting up have laid in sun, but as soon as connected back up it twists


Is the pool cleaners hose actually twisting in the pool or before you put it in? If it is twisting outside of the pool, it might still straighten out when you put it in the water. It it is twisting in the water, you might need to add some additional hose lengths to help it operate smoothly.

Hose gets twisted all of the time Have replaced almost everything


Try laying the hose out on the ground and stretching it out as straight as you can get it. Let if sit this way in the sun for several hours. You might have a warp in the hose material that is causing these tangles. Allowing it to sit stretched in the sun for several hours will help. Also, try readjusting your return lines. They could be interfering with the pool cleaners pattern and causing the cord to become tangled.

You have either a bad or stuck gear box or a loose or damaged a frame bearing. The gear box controls turning and the a frame controls propulsion, but one bad bearing will cause the cleaner to move more in one direction, causing the hose to coil. You can hold the cleaner under the water by the top of the hose, and it should turn in all directions within a few minutes. If it doesn't, then it is the gearbox. If it does, then likely a problem with the a frames.

you need to install a turbine kit with "a" frames. sounds like your bearings are bad either on the turbine, "a " frames, or both. A set of shoes would be a good idea as well.

I have exactly the same problem-Navigator only turns to the left


it sounds like it needs a turbine kit with a-frames, it's a common problem with this cleaner. you can expect to install a turbine kit every other season if not sooner. If the wings and shoes are good, check the bearings both on the turbine and the a-frames. If they're good, check steering valve. hope this helps...

Navigator hose cntinues to twist


I would recommend replacing the gearbox. That's what controls the turning so, if it's not turning correctly, that's the cause. It could also be the hoses. You could change the order of the hoses and that might help.

Hayward Navigator Pool Cleaner Will Not Move


The problem is that you have too much play in your drivetrain. You will need to check for movement between the pod and the a-arm and then between the a-arm and turbine. It would also be a good idea to check the turbine bearings. Find the loose fitting, worn part and that is your problem. As far as it not twisting on the end of the hose; this is most likely caused by the screen on the back of the unit being obstructed by debris or the gearbox assembly being jammed by debris that got through the screen or is just worn out. If you have any mechanical abilty you shoud be able to do these repairs yourself with the help of a downloadabe exploded diagram. If not call a pool repairman the parts are not really that expensive compared to the cost of a new unit.
