How to Replace Pool Cleaner Wheel Bearing

Somebody recently suggested that I replace my pool cleaner’s wheel bearing. I’m a bit scared to do it, because there are so many things that can go wrong. But the idea of not having to do it myself every year is really appealing, so I decided to investigate. In this article, I’ll show you how to replace the wheel bearing on a pool cleaner using basic tools and a few simple steps.

What is a Pool Cleaner Wheel Bearing?

A pool cleaner wheel bearing is a small, lightweight metal component that helps to rotate the cleaner wheel. When it becomes worn or damaged, it can cause the cleaner wheel to stop spinning and leave pools and decks dirty.

How to Replace a Pool Cleaner Wheel Bearing

If you have a pool cleaner with a wheel bearing, it may need to be replaced. This is a fairly easy job that can be done by anyone with basic mechanical skills. The bearing will likely need to be taken off the cleaner and cleaned before it can be replaced. If the bearing is damaged, it will need to be replaced.

How to Test if the Bearing is Gone

If you are finding that your pool cleaner wheel is not spinning as freely as it should, it may be time to replace the bearing. To test if the bearing is gone, follow these steps:

1. Remove the cover plates on the bottom of the wheel.
2. Remove the bottom cover from the motor.
3. If the bearing is accessible, remove it by unscrewing it and/or pulling it out. If the bearing is not accessible, remove the shaft from the wheel by unscrewing it or removing the hubcap.
4. Inspect the races for wear or damage. If there is any damage, replace the race. If there is no damage, replace the bearing.
