Yesterday my cleaner was not moving at all and had water shooting out the backup valve. I took the valve apart, cleaned the internal mechanism, hooked it all back up and it seemed to work fine after that.
Today the cleaner is moving (no water shooting out the valve) but it does not backup at all. It continues to run but does not cycle through backups. As a result, it keeps getting stuck in certain spots.
I'm thinking the internal mechanism for the valve needs to be replaced. I noticed a few of the gears were kind of wobbly. Before I buy a replacement, I just wanted to make sure it's the mechanism and not something else I should be looking at.
As a note: I've already replaced the valve casing itself back at the beginning of the summer because it had a crack in it. I just swapped out the old mechanism.
