Question about Universal Kreepy Krauly In-Ground Pool Cleaner

1 Answer

KK moves back to the filter box and stays there. I basically have to grab the hose and pull the KK up to the shallow end and then it heads back down to the deep end right where it is attached to the filter box. I might as well vacuum by hand.

When you say filter box I want to think your talking about your main drain. If this is the case you just need to shut down the suction to your drain, it is redundant at this point and the suction between the two will make the Kreepy stick to the drain. Hope this helpds.

Were does the little black hose go by the filter


The black hose is a drain. It drains the water out of the filter housing prior cleaning the filter. It has a plug in the end. Take out the plug and drain the water into a shallow pan. When done, the plugged hose just stays behind the cover.

This is not as easy as it sounds, this machine uses a micro bore hose which is an interference fit in the tank, to replace it you will need to remove the fuel tank from the saw, to do this start by removing the guide bar and chain, remove the three screws securing the top cover and remove, remove the two screws holding the air filer and remove, remove the two 10mm nuts hloding the filer back plate and remove, remove the two 7mm head boltssecuring the carb, remove the two cross head screws securing the metal bracket against the carb, lift the carb away with the throttle wire and choke pull attached, diss conect the fuel hose, now remove the four screws holding the starter cover on, two screws are self tapping and go into the plastic cranlcase the other two are machine screws and go into the anti vib mounts, when replacing make sure they go back in the same holes in the starter cover, on the other side of the saw remove the 4mm allen screw securing the chain catcher in the bottom r/h side of the saw, this also screws into an anti vibe mount, remove the cross head screw at the top l/h side of the saw and remove the orange plastic square cover, the fuel tank will now drop out of the bottom of the saw with the top handle still connected,pull the old fuel hose out through the the fuel filler hole with the filter still connected, ncut a point on one end of the new fuel hose and push down through the top of the tank, grab with a pair of long nose pliers through the filler hole and pull the hose in, trim the end and re fit the filter, allow enough hose to allow the filter to move around in the tank, re fit the tank and securing screws, re build in reverse of diss assembly.

Replace fuel line on husqvarna 142


You need to remove the carb to do this, remove the top cover, remove the two screws holding the air filter on and remove, remove the two 10mm nuts holding the filter back plate and remove, remoce the two 7mm headed screws secuting the carb, remove the two cross head screws holding the bottom of the bracket, the bracket will now come away along with the carb, unhook the fuel hose from the carb, now grab the fuel hose through the fuel filler hole, pull the hose with the filter out through the filler hole, take a new hose, slice one end into a long taper, push the taper through the hole in the crankcase floor and into the top of the tank far enough to be able to grab the end with a pair of long nose pliers through the filler hole, pull down into the tank, trim the end and refit the filter.

I guess you should try the cheapr option first, and replace the fuel hose, to replace the hose first remove the air filter, now the two retaining nuts foe the filter back plate, now remove the two cross head screws in the foot of the bracket, remove the two studs that secure the carb ( 7mm ) now pull the fuel hose of the carb and put it to one side, open the fuel filler cap and drain the fuel, using a pair of long nose pliers through the filler hole grab the fuel hoseand pull it down into the tank, once through pull it out along with the filter, take a new hose, **** the pipe up the middle approx 2" and take away one half, feed the now cut end through the hole in the crankcase and into the hole in the tank, using the ling nose pliers again through the filler hole grab the hose and pull it on through, trim the end and re fit the filter.

I have a 20X40 rectangular liner pool and my kreepy krauly stays in the deep end of the pool. I think I need to adjust the weights. Where should the weights be placed?


The first weight from the cleaning head should be adjusted so the Kreepy sits flat on the floor with the system turned off. Then you can start moving the next weight until it starts climbing the hill to the shallow end. It may take a few times but if you get the weights set correctly it should work.

Fuell pick up line is cracked and brittle. How do


The fuel lins is normally just an interference fit in the fuel tank, so diss connect the pipe from the carb, use a pair of long nose pliers through the open filler cap hole, grab the end of the pipe and pull down and out, the pipe should come away with the fuel filter attached to the end, take a new fuel hose, cut the top off at a steep angle leaving a pointed end approx 1/2" long, push this end into the top of the fuel tank, use the pliers again through the filler hole to grab the pointed end as it protrudes through the tank and pull it on through, once through pull it out through the filler hole and connect the fuel filter, there should be enough fuel hose pulled through so as the filter can freely move to all sides of the tank.

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.
