Make sure you have a clean filter and clean wall fitting screen. Pull hose out of water and lay it so you can watch the back-up mode go through its mode. The housing might be crack and have a leak which might not give the valve enough power.

Pentair Platinum Legend gets stuck between my bar stools and the wall

This question is a little vague. You have bar stools in your pool? If so, you should remove them before cleaning. If you are using this pool cleaner outside of the pool, you are using it improperly and probably ruining it.

Zodiac G2 gets stuck at far end of pool in two corners. Each time I have to pull the hose to get it out, then its fine. Anything I can do to stopit getting stuck in the first place, please?

The biggest cause of this is current in the pool driving the cleaner to the corners. You propally just need to change the direction of the eye balls on you returns to the pool. Face them down the pool wall or just in another direction to break up the flow of water in the pool.

My wheels wont move

Check to make sure that you do not have a blocked impeller. I would also check to make sure that you dont have something stuck in your drive train. The only other thing that could cause an issue with these pool cleaners is if you are not getting sufficient water flow.

The valve is called a back up valve but that jet of water just hauls the cleaner out of corners, but the unit itself dosen't back up.

Nav gets stuck on steps and wont back out of a corner

Try adding a hose or turning the return jets in different directions. If it is short on hose it will pull up from pool serface and won't get enough drive to pull itself out of the step. Returns will get a current going in thr pool and can sometimes push the cleaner wher it wants it to go usualy the steps will provide a good stopping point, like a boat getting caught below a waterfall in a river. If this is the problem the cleaner will run good for the first hour or so after the pool first starts. hope this helps, good luck.
