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.

It wont pick up using the wand

There might be a few things you can try.
First, does the vacuum have a dial or control to turn the suction to the wand? If so, make sure you've set or turned this so that the wand suction is activated.
Second, most wands have a suction control vent. If this has been uncovered, the suction will not work efficiently. Look near the area where the wand connects to the vacuum and see if you can locate the suction control vent. There should be a plastic partial ring that can be moved to cover or uncover the hole.
I hope this helps. If so, please come back and rate my solution!

Suction is ok but it wont move around the pool

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.

Has good suction but wont move

Is there a tile stuck in the condom shaped diaphram when you look into the cleaner from underneath. Could be any kind of rubbish make sure you look deep inside as debris gets stuck right at the top.
This diaphram is removable check also that it does not have a hole in it.

Has good suction but wont move

Sounds like a clogged or damaged diaphragm. Unscrew the nut just above the handle and push the white tube downward until you can see the white(ish) rubber diaphragm. It should not be damaged or distorted. there should be a small uniform gap inside and should not have any holes other than the two ends. Replace if necessary.

Sticking solid to the bottom wont move.

If you have to much suction This can keep the cleaner stuck in one spot. Once the cleaner sticks to the floor the flapper won't move because of low water flo. If the cleaner only sticks when it hits the main drain then you still have suction through the drain and need to shut it down or plug it off. The suction from the drain and the cleaner suction will cancel each other out and cause the cleaner to stick to the drain. A main drain is a misnomer it is properly called a deep suction, as it's job is to collect heavy dirt. The cleaner is a roveing deep suction and replaces the main drain. So you no longer need it and can feel free to plug it if you have to. Good luck.

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.
