We haven't used our pool yet I put pool chemicals in to clean pool and the pump won't turn on it has 635T filter pump , the light doesn't even come on the pp when plugged in? What do I need to do?

Check the breaker feeding the pump and make sure that power is reaching the motor. If there is a timer make sure that it is in the "on" position.

My navigator works well until it reaches the deep end at the upward curve and will basically stop at that point....if i manually push it it resumes its course but gets stuck again at the upward curve. it...

I would first check the water flow with your water flow gauge. If it is too high, you can use a restrictor plate that may help you get your correct coverage back. If it is too low, that means its a problem with your pump, not the cleaner. Check your shoes and wings. If they are worn, it could cause the pool cleaner to not be able to climb properly. If it has always had this problem, it could be that your hose is too short and it cannot reach all points of the pool effectively. You can buy additional hose sections if this seems to be the problem. A few more things to try: check and clean your rear screen, make sure that your cone gear is free and rotates smoothly in all directions, and check your gear box to make sure that it doesn't need to be repaired or replaces.

Overall poor performance 1. does not go to both sides of pool 2. either hangs up on stairs or after adjusting sits and spins on stair / sides 3.

If the pool cleaner does not cover the entire pool, check the hose length reaches within 6" of the farthest point of the pool. Set your thrust jet for 11:00 position. This will optimize random turning. If it is hanging on the stairs, check the pool cleaners wheel RPM. It should be between 28-32. Verify that the back-up valve is cycling.

Allheaters run off of a thermostat just like the heat to your house. It will shut off once heated to the selected temperature. Turn up the temperature, and monitor it for a couple days.

Robokleen stays in same spot going back and forth about four feet wont go around pool it was stuck the other day on a pool toy and couldnt get off of it we didnt know about it til we pulled it out later...

With these automatic pool cleaners, a jammed impeller can cause it to not work. Since the cleaner was caught on a pool toy, my guess is that it has some fabric/material jammed in the impeller and that is causing your problems. Open it up and check your impeller. I am sure that you will find it jammed.

My tork pool timer is not shutting the filter off. It gets stuck in the area that turns the pool filter off. The timer turns the filter on fine. When it gets stuck it also stops the timer. Any ideas????...

Turn the electric off to the timer and carefully try to clean and dust, dirt, corrosion off the timer points. Turn the electric back on and try it out. If it is still malfunctioning it is probably time to replace it. Good luck.

Pool pump was on had a storm electric went out.

Pull the lid and strainer basket off your pump and reach in (electricity will be off at this point) and make sure that the pump inlet isn't blocked with debris from the storm... small stuff can get thru the strainer and jam up the pump motor... I know...i've got the pool from hell ...constantly jamming the pump...but it's next to a huge evergreen tree...

after you get the debris out, take a crescent wrench and remove the cap off the motor shaft on the outside of the pump. Turn that shaft with a wrench back and forth to free up the motor and dislodge the debris... if it frees up, put it all back together and turn the power may have to repeat this process a coupe of times to completely clean the impellers in the pump.... good luck!

JANDY RAY VAC won't back up

If you have a back up valve it will be about 18" from wall a small football looking thing this should cycle through about every munite or two and shoot a jet of water out the side of it for about 5-10 seconds if it dosen't do this pull it out of line and get a new gut for it. If this seems to be working ok you should be sure it has enough hose to reach the whole pool but be sure it just reaches the furthest point in the pool so it can strech the hose and remove any curls each time it does.
