New main belt alignment for Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.1.
Belt moves 1/4 inch towards of vacuum cleaner and will not stay aligned on the V convex guide pulley.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is possible that you may have a broken or cracked motor mount and the motor has shifted and that could be the reason that the belt is not running straight and aligned properly – if you have the vacuum less than one year – something like this would be covered under the Hoover factory warranty and to contact an authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to call the Hoover factory cust serv @ the phone # listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: can not put the head on so the belt will stay on

make sure the belt is position in the middle before u put the head on . hook the belt on by turning it to red. its easier when u put the height adjuster all the way up. slid the head straight onto the front. and lift the back so it goes over the ledge. and then pull the lock down to secure. amke sure the safetly switch is activated. then turn it to green. when u turn the kirby on if the green light is greena dn not off or dim or on and off. then u put the belt on correctly. if green light is not on . try again .. it comes with practise. once u get the hang of it .. its pretty easy

SOURCE: Polaris hangs in the deep end

Check to see if one of the drive belts is broken. You'll need to pull the wheels and separate the housing to inspect. Also make sure that the thrust jet is centered and pointing towards 12:00. This unit should back up after 3 minutes and reposition itself.

SOURCE: my navigator seems to stay primarily in the deep

Could be several things. If no blockage at inlet hole, feet are in good condition, springs in place and moving freely, etc., I would suggest too little suction. Use the gauge that came with the unit to check for acceptable level. If you don't have that, it will just be trial and error to get it right. Unfortunately, you can't set these once and expect them to remain functional. Suction is always changing depending on filter pressure (blockage), skimmer baskets full, etc..

My kreepy krauly wont clean the deep end of the swimming pool.


Your situation is unusual in that most of the time these will stay in the deep end and not get to the shallow end. Make sure that your hose is the proper length and the hose weights are in the right positions

Up to 4 feet water, 1 weight at one foot away from Kreepy
4-7 feet water, add a second weight at 6 feet from Kreepy
7-12 feet water add a third weight at 10 feet from Kreepy.

It can take some trial and error to get the Kreepy to cover the whole pool. This includes adding or removing hose sections, and adjusting the pool return "eyeballs" to different directions.

New navigator stays in deep end 99% of time, comes to shallow end, turns around & goes back to deep end


If your filter is placed toward the deep end of your pool, it could be that the pool cleaners hose is too short to reach the shallow end. You might want to test it and add more hose if necessary. It could also be a steering failure. There are a couple things to check if this is happening. Check and clean the rear screen. Make sure that your cone gear is free and rotates smoothly. You might also need to clean, repair, or replace your gearbox.

Vac gets stuck in deep end and can't get to shallow end


What type of pool do you have? These specific pool cleaners are made for flat bottomed above ground pools. They are not made to move from deep end to shallow end. If you are using this on an in ground pool that has both shallow and deep or a dished above ground pool, you are not going to get accurate cleaning.

My barracuda stays in the deep end and will not move to the shallow end of the pool


You probably just need to redirect the returns in the pool. If they are angled right (or wrong) they will get a current moving in the pool and cause the cleaner to go to one spot and keep it in just that area of the pool.

Won't go in shallow end to clean


If your floats have started to absorb water, the unit may become reluctant to climb the slope from the deep end to the shallow end, although it may still at least start to climb and clean the wall. There are 3 installed floats in the unit bottom plate: 1 "h" float and 2 pocket floats. Aqua Service Distributors in Sequin, TX had a good price on replacements. Good people, too. S.
