SOURCE: polaris in pool cleaner back water single spout not water passing

Check your wheel RPM. With these automatic pool cleaners, you can manually adjust the RPM. Low RPM could be the cause of the problem. To check the RPM, first mark a single wheel side tire, Turn the pump on, hold the cleaner under water and count the wheel revolutions for one minute. If the RPM is less than 28, you might need to remove the blue restrictor disk from the UWF or adjust the gate valve on the booster pump. Also, this may sound simple, but make sure there is no debris lodged in the wheels/axles. Check your filter screen in your in-line filter and make sure that it is clear of debris. You will also want to check your hoses, connections, and swivel to make sure that there are no leaks.

SOURCE: the single wheel on polaris 3900s does not drive

I have had this problem before.You will have to buy a new wheel or glue the inner part back in.FYI if you ever need to replace the bearings in the gear box you do not have to buy a new gear box.Bearings are available. They just do not tell you.

SOURCE: the single wheel on polaris 3900s does not drive

I've had and am having the same problems. Bearing's part number is 9-100-1108, you can find them on Amazon or at local pool supply. Replaced the bearings, fixed the single wheel and put it back together. Everything seems to work well, but only works half the time in the pool.....Any ideas?

SOURCE: My Polaris 3900 Sport Pool

I had a similar issue. When I lifted the unit out of the water while it was operating only the single wheel was rotating. I turned it off and removed the bag and hose. I flipped it over on a workbench and unscrewed the three recessing screws securing the base plate. Once the plate was removed I noticed the metal chain driving the two wheels had come off on the far side of the inner sprocket. I worked the chain back onto the sprocket and tested it by rotating the single wheel and verifying the other two wheels rotated. After reassembly I put the unit back in the pool and it drove straight and high on the sides. Hope this helps someone :-)

Popping noise coming from front sprocket when wheel is turned on 01 suzuki gsxr 600


hi it sounds like your front sproket is really worn and hooked when you turn the chain its not releasing the links smoothly ,replace it with a new one and check the condition of your chain it may be worth replacing a complete chain and sproket set as running a bike with a worn front sproket could lead to a back wheel locking up at speed if the chain jams

The chain on the MX500 dirt bike is slipping over the sproket on the back wheel. I've read the posts where the sproket turns but the wheel does not, that is not my issue. I'm thinking I just need to...


Is there a chain adjustment on this bike? It must be very loose to slip over the sprocket. See if there are two bolts that act as jacks to move the rear wheel back away from the drive sprocket. Loosen the locking nuts on each bolt, and tighten both equally until there is only 1/2 inch of play in the middle of the chain, then repost.

Polaris 3900 is going in circles


If the cleaner is running in circles to the left the chain has come off the double side. To fix take bottom off and place chain where it is riding on the center sproket. To test turn one wheel and all wheels should turn. Also on the axel blocks the wheels are attached to can be adjusted to allow more tension on the chain.

I have slack in the rear chain and I'm getting shiny spots on the links at the pins how do you tighten the chain.


If your chain is gettin shiny spots at the pins the chain and sprockets may be worn past their limit. Check for excessive side to side play in the chain and for pointed teeth on the sprockets. If either are worn remember when replacing them the chain and sprockets should be done at the same time. If it is only an adjustment the axle carrier is eccentric, the axle housing must be loosened and the bearing housing rotated within the swingarm until the chain is at proper adjustment. Always double check adjustments after they are made and rotate the wheels with the vehicle off the ground to ensure there is no binding
