Hey guys, my Hayward is about 7 years old and usually new shoes and bearing change tunes it right up, but its been non-cooperative.
It basically stalls in water, no movement. Sometimes I find it sort of on its side and not making full contact with floor. It doesnt clean at all.
When I take it out of the water to inspect, the pods seem to get stuck when I move them even though I just replaced them.
Here is what I have replaced:
Here is some of the stuff I havent replaced that might be suspect:
Gear Box (mine looks clean and all parts look good inside, but I could be wrong??)
Top Gear Kit (seems harder than normal to turn, but Im not sure.)
Upper body cone (again, seems harder to turn)
Any suggestions on what I should try or how to diagnose which part should be replaced next??? I feel like I could buy a new one, but Im determined to get this sucker going!
