Sometimes u have to use the return water that enters your pool to fill up the hose with water u use to get all the air out of it, its kinda like priming it. or u can submerge the hose all the way. And if that still doesn't work then sometimes giggling the hose might get it to start suction

My dirt devil was out of the pool, got turned on, got very hot. Now it isnt working


Your cleaner is a suction side cleaner that would not be affected if run dry. You would just loose prime. You must make sure you reprime the hose as you put it in the water...but you must know this already. More info is needed to solve this issue.

Our dirt devil pool cleaner keeps sticking to the pool floor and will not move around, what do we need to do?


Make sure that your unifram is installed with the opening in a vertical position. If it is horizontal, you pool cleaners line will not have proper suction. You will also want to check for obstructions in the flapper that would cause the cleaner to not move properly. Finally, make sure that this is the proper cleaner for your pool size. If you have an in ground or very large above ground pool, it is possible that the pump you are operating with is too strong for the cleaner to move properly.

Brand new dirt devil will not make connection with the bottom of the pool


Check to make sure that the pool cleaners flapper is installed properly. If it is installed incorrectly or has debris lodged in the flaps, the pool cleaner will not be able to create suction on the bottom of the pool. Also, check and make sure that you have enough water pressure to power your cleaner.

Too much suction does not move around pool seems to just **** to the bottom. have cleaned all leaves out of filter. makes the water exit area to the filter vibrate


It sounds like you could have an obstruction in the hose. Check the entire length of hose from the pool filter to the pool cleaner and make sure that nothing is causing a back up of pressure. If you don't see anything, it could be that this pool cleaners not compatible with a pool pump as strong as the one that you have.

Dirt devil pool vacuum wont move


If one of these pool cleaners is not working, you likely have an obstruction in the flapper. That would explain why you have suction and no movement. With the pump off, turn the cleaner upside down and check for any twigs, rocks, etc. in the flapper. If you don't see anything or see something you can't reach with your fingers, remove the base plate with a flat head screw driver and check there. The base plate is where the waste is collected.

The tracks for the Dirt Devil Rampage pool cleaner are the same as the AquavacTigershark. Simple look for the parts for the Tigershark. Its the same exact thing.

Cleaner is not picking up debris from pool bottom


Have you check the filter/baskets to make sure that you don't have a large piece of debris that is preventing suctions? You will also want to check each section on the vaccum systematically to make sure that there are not cracks or noticable areas of damage that would prevent the pool cleaner from working. Is is not moving at all or just not sucking properly? Can you give me more details as to what it, exactly, it is doing?
