Check the metal debris screen inside the fitting that connects to the pool wall to make sure you have good pressure. If dirty then clean the screen. Then check the hose to make sure there are no holes. Look at the inside of the front wheels to see if the teeth are stripped. If they are then switch the back wheels to the front. If they havent been switched before the back wheels should have good teeth. If there is no inline metal screen on the feed hose then the jets inside the cleaner could be clogged with seeds or some type of debris. Also could be a bad internal gear or bearing that is seizing up.

All wheels on 3900 do not turn together. How do I fix this.


The first step that you should take if your pool cleaners wheels are not turning correctly is to check the wheel RPM. It should be between 30 and 36. If it is lower than 30, open the adjustable valve (if you have one) on your return line to allow more water flow. Also, make sure that your filter, skimmer, and hoses are clear of debris and do not have any leaks or cracks that could change your suction and lower wheel RPM. Finally, you can remove the blue restrictor disk from the UWF.You might also need to adjust your thrust jet if it is causing the cleaner to move more quickly on one side.

The wheels on my Polaris 3900 don't move. Plenty of water coming thru the thrust and the tail wags. When I move the wheels manually they all move together.


There are a couple things that you should check with these pool cleaners if the wheels are functioning properly. Check the filter screen in the in-line filter assembly and clean if necessary.Make sure that you do not have any debris or obstructions that could be halting wheel function. Even though you seem to have plenty of water, check the RPM and make sure they are between 28 and 32.

My polaris is doing circles. it appears the single wheel doesnt move like it used to


i've just discovered i have this same issue with my polaris 3900. the machine is less than 3 months old. there is a small metal "gear" in the wheel hub just behind the blue "hub cap". a single screw holds it on the axle. it appears that the gear has worn the out around the hub causing it to slip and not be able to drive the wheel.. it appears that the solution would be to buy another wheel.

My polaris 3900 moves across the pool with the front wheel of the bottom, the wheel on the 1 wheel side and the back wheel are on the bottom.


Check your wheel RPM. If the pool cleaners RPM is over 32, reduce the water flow so that the cleaner makes proper contact with the pool's surface. Verify the back-up valve is cycling. Lift the valve out of
the water and watch the jet. It should come on and go off. You might also need to adjust your thrust jet if it is causing the cleaner to lean too far to one side.

The cleaner stands on front wheels and barely moves.


With these pool cleaners, there are several things you will want to try. Check the filter screen in the in line filter and the skimmer basket, pump basket, and pool filter. Clean any if necessary. Make sure that all hoses, connections, and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure. Make sure that your wheel RPM is correct. Make sure that your thrust jets are positioned correctly and that you have proper waterflow.

Ray Vac moving slow, circles deep end, sticks on side of pool


I have the same problem and the best solution is to repair/replace the hydro timer kit. It has inner gears that are plastic and wear down and doesn't rotate through the cycle of water flo that changes it's direction. I'm in the process of exhaustive repair and I'm going to replace the hydro timer - (inside part only) and then see what happens. Moving the gears did change it's moving patterns tho.
