Gear Box Assembly - AXV408P
I have a navigator pool cleaner ser.409D-981982 WILL THE GEAR BOX FIT,IT HAS AN ORANGE GEAR ON TOP.
In what order are the gears in the gear box placed when re assembling the gear box. A diagram showing the order the gears are placed in would be a help. 7 gears are in the gear box and some are numbered.
Hello, Here is a link to a YouTube video on how to reassemble the Hayward Navigator Gear Box. Hope this helps.
Our Hayward Ultra pool cleaner keeps going in circles. The hose is not "formed"
so as to make the device go in circles.
I have cleaned the "gear box" and it made no performance improvement.
Yes, the gear box assembly needs to be replaced if it's only going in a circle.
How do you reasemble the gear box innards. Does anyone have a diagram of the way the gears go back in the box . On the hayward navagator pool cleaner.
Hi, The only guide that is available is in the Hayward Pool Vac/Navigator Troubleshooting Guide on page 26.
My gearbox has V085A marked on it. Does the current gearbox suit this model. Do you ship to Australia?
Hi Brad, Yes this gear box is the replacement for the Hayward V085A gear box and yes we do ship to Australia.
Can I use this cleaner without the gear box.?
The cleaner will still pull water, but will not turn. The purpose of the gear box is to alter the path of the cleaner. If it were to get into a corner, it would stay there until you moved it.
Whenever the vacuum gets to a corner it stops and sits. It doesn't move or rotate to another direction. Does this mean I need a new gear box?
A bad gear box could cause the cleaner not to move out of a corner. Also, check the gears at the top of the cleaner and make sure they are free of debris.
My cleaner just goes around in very slow circles, never even getting to the shallow end of the pool. I am going to replace the pods because the little piece that holds the flapper on is broken on one side. Could this also be the problem.
Hello. That does sound more like the gear box than anything else. Replacing the pods is also a great plan if one of the points that hold the wings on is broken. Please inspect the shoes and wings to see how close they are to their wear lines as well. This will affect it ability as well.
How do I know if the Hayward gear box AXV408P needs to be replaced?
Once the gear box is removed from the cleaner you can blow into a small hole on one corner of the box. If you do not hear the gears spinning they are either clogged or bad. If cleaning the gears does not help, the gear box needs to be replaced.

Restored my Hayward Navigator to service by allowing it to change paths rather than get stuck in the same pattern all the time.

The gear box was what I needed to replace. After installation my vacuum began to function again. My pool is now clean and will remain that way thanks
