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.

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.

Can't get dirt devil to go


There are several things to check if this type of automatic pool cleaner stops moving. It is typically a blockage in the flapper area. Turn your pump off, remove the cleaner from the pool, and turn in over to view the flapper. The flapper should move freely and their should be no obvious stones, twigs or other debris clogging this area. If you see debris and can't remove it with your fingers, remove the base plate (plate where the debris goes when vacuuming). Using a small flat headed screwdriver, push on one of
the two tabs located on the side of the base plate. Release the plate and remove the flapper. You can then clean it out. You should also check your skimmer and pump baskets and empty them if they are full.

My resently purchased Dirt Devil pool cleaner vacuum for above ground pools does not have any suction. It was assumbled the exact way the manual said. What's the problem?


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

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?
