Try checking the following things that often happen when these automatic pool cleaners are not moving: First, make sure that the main drain and and all suction lines not being used are closed. You might be getting some suction, but it might not be enough. Also, check for debris in your filter and pump baskets. Make sure that your flapper is working. If it has debris, it can prevent movement.

Navigator pool cleaner just skims the bottom of the pool and does not sit on the bottom, it moves all around the pool but appears to be floating a little. How can we fix this so it will sit and move on the...


Interesting question. Do you have the special Lead Hose, the one with a colored cuff attached to the Navigator itself? Other causes can be, too little or too much hose, a pinhole leak in one of the hoses above water causing the hoses to float, not enough suction on the Navigator. You didn't say if you have the Navigator plugged into a skimmer or in a dedicated suction port in the wall. I would first try increasing the suction to the unit and see if your problem doesn't go away.

My navigator is like brand new and strong suction, but it just won't move around.


If you are getting suction through the cleaner, but it is not moving around, you probably have wings or shoes improperly installed. If the pool cleaners shoes look worn or are not installed properly, this will happen. A copy of the users manual is below. Check to make sure that they are installed properly.You might also need to adjust the rear tension flap. Finally, even though you think your suction is good, make sure that there are no obstructions or leaks that would cause movement failure.

Barracuda has plenty of suction but hardly moves around the pool, goes very slowly


You likely just need a new pad on the head. When they ware down they allow the head to get closer to the surface that it's cleaning, but the additional suction makes it difficult for the head to move.

I hope this helps you!

Wont move,has suction but wont move?


If cleaner is pulsing, you probably have a worn out foot pad and it should be replaced. If it not pulsing, you probably have a ripped or torn diaphragm and it needs to be replaced. Also, make sure there is enough suction.

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.

Changed the fin on the baracuda, but it still does not move around the pool, can fill the suction if I lift it up, but it does not move.


If you have good suction at the head you may have a bad diaprham or something stuck in it. If you have suction but it is weak check for cracks in hoses or you may have a clog in your pump impeller.

Hayward pool cleaner wont move


Make sure the feet have springs in place, move freely, and rubber not too worn. If that all looks ok, then probably too much suction pressure. Use gauge that came with unit to verify proper suction.
