    Polaris 280 Black Max

    My polaris all of a sudden stopped working. On initial exam I noticed one of the wheels was not straight. The bearings seemed to be lose so I replaced both sets on that wheel. I thought that would do the trick, but the sucker won't move. It also lists to one side and doesn't seem to want to stay flat on the bottom of the pool.

    Recently my pool guy said my booster pump was leaking...it looks like he replaced the impeller and o-rings.

    Any thought?

    Are the wheels spinning at all?

    I'm guessing that the drive shifts are not engaging the wheel fully. Also you might want to see if the spin freely, there are bearing that may need replacing. Also have you disassembled the shell to make sure the hoses are good and not cracked or off? This will also get to look at the drive gear to see if it spins on the shaft.
