If it is a year old, replace the flapper valve. Also check your water flow and make sure it is adequate. These units are subject to wear on the foot and flapper and these should be changed each season

If it has never worked properly, it could be that your pump and filter system are too small for this particular automatic pool cleaner. If you don't feel that this is the case, there a few things that you can check. Make sure that there is not debris in the flapper. It could be causing a loss of suction, making the pool cleaner rise off the floor of the pool. Also, check your water flow coming from your return line. It could be too high. You can adjust it with an eyeball diverter if necessary.

First, check for debris in the pool cleaners flapper. This can cause a lack of suction the floor. Also, check for proper hose balance. If the hose rests at a greater than 45 degree angle, the hose is too light and you need to move the hose weights closer to the cleaner. If the hose rests at a less than 45 degree angle, you need to move the weights away from the cleaner.

There are several things that you can do to prevent these pool cleaners from sticking at steps and corners. First, your return line water flow might be positioned incorrectly to force the cleaner toward the corners. Check for this and use the eyeball diverter valve to redirect the water flow if necessary. Make sure that your automatic regulator valve is installed properly and free of debris. Make sure that you have proper hose balance (the cleaner should set at a 45 degree angle to the pool bottom). Adjust the hose weights if necessary. You may need to add a wall climb restrictor or a ladder guard. If none of these correct the problem, consider adding the Thruster, which aids in random pattern coverage by automatically repositioning the hose to help free the cleaner from obstacles.
