Replace the belts.($30) Tighten with an 1/8" play. Also check the wheel bearings. If the wheels wobble they also need to be replaced

I have a polaris 380. I have replaced the belts and several of the bearings. The wheels all turn at the same time when you spin one of them, however when it is in the pool and I check the RPM it...


If all the belts, bearings, shafts, etc are in order and the wheels don't turn then the turbine is not providing power to the system. This turbine is under a cover inside the cleaner. Remove the cover to inspect it (look for any mechanical problems). You can also connect water pressure to it at this time to see if the jet that turns it will make the turbine turn. If the turbine is being hit by a jet of water it should turn if the friction in the belts, bearings, shafts, etc. is not too high.

Polaris 380 wont run when vertical


The drive belts are loose. Replace the drive belts are at least take the cover off inspect and tighten. The adjustments are the axle blocks. Tighten to where there is about an 1/8" tension while lightly pushing on the belt.

My polaris 380 wheels won't turn. the belt is


If the wheels don't turn there may be sand in the notches on the wheels, the notches may be worn off, if their is sand or dirt in the paddel wheel jet that will keep the unit from turning and again no wheel movement. All of these problems they can check in your local pool store. Stores will generely check your unit out and fix what is needed for just the price of parts to fix it when you bring it into the store.
If you have no water flow to the unit this will also stop things from working so be sure to check your finger screen before you do anything.

Polaris 380 wheels not moving


Here are some things to check: 1.  There are belts inside the unit that drive the wheels.  These belts often fail (shred) and must be replaced. 2.  There is a paddlewheel that drives the turbine that turns the wheels.  If the jet that drives the turbine is clogged, then the paddlewheel will not move and the wheels will not turn. 3.  There is a water management system inside the bottom of the unit.  It looks like a bunch of little hoses.  If one of these hoses comes loose, then the water pressure will escape inside the unit and will not be sufficient to drive the wheels.
Hope this helps
