Response to I have a Polaris 380. It was working fine until this year (I've had it for over 8 years). Nothing unusual has happened to it, but when I opened my pool this year and used the Polaris it worked fine for about a week and all of a sudden it started rolling in a tight spiral and now all it does is go in this tight spiral and get the hose all knotted up in a tangle and gets stuck on the hose outlet and it no longer sweeps the pool. Do you know what can cause this and can it be fixed?
