Hi,

My sweep has stopped operating as it once did. The video (see link below) shows how the polaris sweep just sits there while the hose just gets tangled up. The o-ring in the valve seems to be worn but I doubt this is the culprit.

Please suggest what I should do to repair this.

Thanks in advance.

I had something similar happen to my 280 twice. Each time, the repair center had to replace the main drive because it wasn't moving smoothly and would wear out the internal parts. After the 2nd rebuild, it seemed to work ok.

Fortunately mine was under warranty when I had those problems. How old is the cleaner?
