How do i use the hose on featherlite bagless

Hello! To use the hose on your Featherlight follow these simple steps below.

· Cleaner must be in its upright position. Remove lower hose from the side of the cleaner by twisting to the right and then pull off.
· Remove the hose from the tool caddy.
· Slide the tool hose into the lower dirt hose with the notch facing up. Push together and twist to secure.
· Choose any of the handy accessories or use the hose alone. Simply push the attachment firmly onto the end of the wand or hose handle. To remove tool, twist and pull apart gently.

I have also included a link to the instruction manual if needed. Hope this was helpful!

New pool cleaner , pool hose just keeps twisting up have laid in sun, but as soon as connected back up it twists

Is the pool cleaners hose actually twisting in the pool or before you put it in? If it is twisting outside of the pool, it might still straighten out when you put it in the water. It it is twisting in the water, you might need to add some additional hose lengths to help it operate smoothly.

With these pool cleaners, it might not be the hose. It could be that your cleaner head has water and is floating, causing the hose to tangle. Check for that problem. If not, it could be that your hose is too long for the pool size that you have. You might need to remove sections on the hose to shorten it.

Dirt devil hose is always twisted

Are you storing this pool cleaner with the hose coiled? If so, that is likely your problem. You should never coil the hose on these cleaners because it will cause problems with operation. Make sure to lay the hose flat in its original box or out of direct sunlight when you are not using it. If you start stretching it out flat during storage, it should solve the hose problem.

The hose on the cleaner gets all twisted up?

Most of the time it is a simple problem that is caused by the way pool cleaners are stored. If you wrap the hose in a coil or around the cleaner when storing it, this is causing the problem. To solve the problem, lay the hose out straight and flat during a warm day. The sun should soften the hose enough to straighten it out. Also, check for obstructions during this time. If the problem continues, you might have too much damage and you might need to replace the entire hose.

New g3 i straighten out the hoses, connect up barracuda,the hoses twist all back up,and it stays in one place

Try disconnecting all the hoses and laying them out in the sun for a few hours. The heat should loosen their shape. Then make sure to not reconnect in the same order. The hoses develop a "memory" if bent in the same position over and over again. If all else fails buy new hoses, although if it's new that shouldn't be the problem.

Does not move through entire pool but gets tangled at the weir all the time

Is this a new cleaner or old? how old? As these cleaners get old say a year or two, parts wear out and effect the performance. Also a number of other things can effect the performance. For example if the cleaner and hose get left out of water and the hose gets tangled if will develop a memory and can greatly effect the way it runs. sometimes adding a hose or two, or removing, or even twisting each hose a quarter turn with change the way they run. You can often adjust the eyeball return fittings to redirect the water and push a cleaner a certain way or have it avoid an area. Let me know if you need more help

You have either a bad or stuck gear box or a loose or damaged a frame bearing. The gear box controls turning and the a frame controls propulsion, but one bad bearing will cause the cleaner to move more in one direction, causing the hose to coil. You can hold the cleaner under the water by the top of the hose, and it should turn in all directions within a few minutes. If it doesn't, then it is the gearbox. If it does, then likely a problem with the a frames.

Steering, twisting, stopping

Make sure your Transporter Jet (R0376900) is shooting water from all holes. If not, it means you have an obstruction in the jet. You can push a toothpick into the hole that is blocked. If that does not clear the obstruction, you can disconnect the jet from the hose and shake out the obstruction. If the obstruction is a small piece of metal, I suggest you look at your Hydro Time Gear Assembly Kit (R0377000) to make sure the metal did not come from this gear.
