We found the problem to be a faulty check valve. the check valve cost about 25.00. I ordered it from poolcenter.com. The check valve is located by the cam. It's an easy fix. The check valve comes with the hose attachment, but since our hose was ok we just used a tie strap to connect the new check valve to the hose...sliped back into place... and it works like a charm once again. The part number is below. go to www.poolcenter.com

The valve should be about $100. We sell it for 90 something. You can rebuild them with gaskets and the spring. There should be a model number on yours, care to post it? Something like SP711, SP714, etc.

The spin-out Cam,you should have got 3 with your viper, are located on the top from front rignt side.You have to remove the top and then you see a small red flywheel thing. There is a white ball in the back where the pressure comes in. I ran a garden hose in and cleaned pressing gently on the ball. Worked for me good luck wuwei

SOURCE: the viper is going in circles
I had a similiar problem. I took the sweep motor apart and used a scotch brite pad and smooted the inside of the piston that operates the spinout. I also lubed the o-ring seals with some vaseline before putting it back together. I also used the scotch brite pad on the little plastic part and its mating surface the piston operates.
