Kreepy Krauly Classic - poor suction

I have a KK generic (XtremepowerUS Automatic Vacuum-generic).
It crawls around the pool great, but fails to pick up much debri.
Any little pebbles or anything with mass it seems to just roll over.
Above the skirt, there are two openings where most of the suction (water intake) seems to be diverted.
The bottom seems to just be providing suction - like a 'suction cup', so it can climb walls, etc.
Is this a known limitation of this model?
Is something wrong?
Is there any modification I can make?
Thanks.

Make sure that you are using the vacuum regulator at the skimmer, sounds like there maybe too much suction which could drive the cleaner to try to stick itself to the floor / wall. Try to back off some of the suction to allow the cleaner to attempt to trap the debris and pick it up from the bottom of the seal.
