Pentair Racer Stuck on Steps

My Pentair Racer works great when it is not stuck on my steps.

When the Racer pulls straight into the steps, it often gets stuck there. The wheels go into reverse but the cleaner does not back up.

Unfortunately, this happens a lot.

Can it be fixed?

Thanks.

Check you water flow with the gauge that is provided and make sure you are within the parameters of required flow. This may cause the cleaner to run freely around the pool but not providing enough pressure to back the cleaner up.

I can't seem to put my hand on the flow gauge. I checked it when the Racer was installed. I will order a new gauge and check it. I will update this after I try that.

Thanks.

Hi Richard:

I finally got a new water flow gauge and my pressure is good, within the parameters required.

The Racer is stilling getting stuck on the steps. Can you suggest any other remedy?

Thanks.
