Clean the bottom screen first.
Where the hose hooks to the wall you have a finger screen either in the wall or sticking out of the wall. Ether way pull that out and clean it.
Chech all of your hose floats and jet's make sure none leak and check the float inside the head. Good luck.

Barracuda climbing walls almost to be out of the pool. Sometimes I think it is high enough to **** air.

There are several adapters on the market to allow more water to bypass the cleaner. One is called the Vac-Mate, another is the Hayward skimmer adapter. I personally like the vac-mate. but it's only compatible with most skimmers.

Ray Vac cleans only in deep end

Make sure that your automatic pool cleaner doesn't have an obstruction in the hose that might not immediately be visible. This could cause it to circulate in one end of the pool. Also, check the water pressure to ensure that it has enough force to travel the entire pool.

If your automatic pool cleaner is going in circles, you might want to check your backup hydro-timer. If it is releasing most of the water out of the discharge hoke, you might need to replace the defective jet gear assembly. Also, make sure that the transporter jet is not plugged. Check your hose to make sure that there are not any obstructions that would prevent proper movement.

What model is it? Is it robotic (indepentdent of your pump and filter)? If it is attached to your pump system, it could be the cord getting tangled and causing the pool cleaner to move in circles. You might want to consider running it when you are available to watch it or getting a robotic cleaner that you can set to operate at certain times. You might just need to check the hose for defects that would cause it tangle.

It has just stopped working it is lying on the bottom looking very sorry for itself

There are a number of reasons for this check your finger screen first thing to ck this is ether in the wall at the wall fitting or in the back up valve about 18" from the the wall on the hose. if these are clean you can see if the back up valve is stuck by turning the pump on and pulling from water, if water is comeing from side of unit this is your problem. if not hole's in your hoses could be the culpret. Again pulling hoses from water being careful of water from line jets check for leaks in hose. If you pull the Ray Vac from pool most pool shops can check these for you and will usually just charge for parts when you bring it into the store.

Change the pusher hose, the pusher jet, and the pusher jet sleeve. These are the first things coming from the end of the unit toward the wall. If you replace all of these parts and it continue to circle, change the front wheel.

Doesn't stay on pool floor - lacks suction

If these pool cleaners are not getting proper suction on the pool floor or wall, it is most likely a problem with the flapper. Make sure that your flapper does not have an debris or tears that would prevent a proper seal. Also, make sure that your water pressure is correct.

JANDY RAY VAC won't back up

If you have a back up valve it will be about 18" from wall a small football looking thing this should cycle through about every munite or two and shoot a jet of water out the side of it for about 5-10 seconds if it dosen't do this pull it out of line and get a new gut for it. If this seems to be working ok you should be sure it has enough hose to reach the whole pool but be sure it just reaches the furthest point in the pool so it can strech the hose and remove any curls each time it does.

I have the problem of the circling Ray Vac. And I haven't seen any solutions here. What's wrong, and what do I have o do to fix it?

PRESSURE is King. After taking apart my entire Ray-Vac and hoses, nothing seemed to fix my circling problem. I finally performed a full cleaning of all my mechanicals, especially the paper filter. I noticed a significant improvement in my water pressure and my Ray-Vac starting running all over the pool again doing her job like she used to. So, the Ray-Vac is very sensitive to water/jet pressure. Check your filter system. You want the most pressure you can get of out jet where you connect the Ray-Vac. This completely solved my problem.

Runs in a small circle

A couple of things to check. 1. sometimes the hose at the back of the head will develop a small hole or crack where water will escape and cause the vac to run in circles.
2. if the head is getting old, you might have enough wear that the little wheels on the bottom stay mostly in one location, pushing in one directon.
