With these automatic pool cleaners, if they are going in circles, it could be one of a few problems. First, your water flow might be functioning incorrectly. Check the water flow gauge and make sure that is coming out evenly. Adjust if necessary. Also, make sure that you do not have a worn shoe or wing on one side of the cleaner. Also, make sure the navigator throat is not obstructed on one side. The same problems could be preventing it from climbing, but for that problem, you will also want to check that the hose is not too short and that the tension in the rear flap is correct.

SOURCE: My Polaris 3900 Sport Pool

I had a similar issue. When I lifted the unit out of the water while it was operating only the single wheel was rotating. I turned it off and removed the bag and hose. I flipped it over on a workbench and unscrewed the three recessing screws securing the base plate. Once the plate was removed I noticed the metal chain driving the two wheels had come off on the far side of the inner sprocket. I worked the chain back onto the sprocket and tested it by rotating the single wheel and verifying the other two wheels rotated. After reassembly I put the unit back in the pool and it drove straight and high on the sides. Hope this helps someone :-)

Hayward great white just spins in circles

Could you clarify the exact model? The picture shows a Polaris 380, and the Great White is built by Sta-Rite/ Pentair,(now sold under the name Kreepy Krauly), not Hayward.
Confused yet? Don't feel bad, I am too!

I have a polaris pool pump which is 5 yrs old and dead. Since general pool pumps of the same horsepower are much cheaper I would like to know if you can substitute a normal pool pump in place of th polaris...

I don't see why not, unless your trying to get above 40psi. I would focus on the pumps flow rate, that will give you a better stance on how closely the pumps relate.

I used the manual vacuum that came with the pool during the summer because I actually got in the pool and vacuumed), but ultimately, now that it is cold, I went to the pool store and bought a much bigger vacuum (that still hooks up to the water hose) and then a longer pole. It's just too darn cold to get in the water during the winter. :-) Hope this helps!

Machine keeps going around in circles jet at back is going straight back?

Few different things can cause this. Wheel bearings can be bad, tires worn, teeth on gears inside wheels stripped or broken, or the teeth on drive shaft worn or broken. Low pressure or clogged line can also cause to run sparatic, but not necessarily in circles. Most likely problem is with bearings, or wheels. Check these closely for problems. Most pool stores with check it and replace parts (that you purchase) for free.
