Aquabot T2 moving in circle

Do the drive belts go on both sides of the Aquabot T2? How do I determine the drive side to place the belts on?

The T2 has one set of belts and a single drive motor. Since one side must be rotating to be moving in a circle, we can then assume that the motor and belts are not the issue here. The two halves of the brushes are connected by a mechanism that allows them to turn independently of the other half. They can rotate about 3 times before they “lock” and act as it were one (not split) brush. This “slippage” is how the cleaner turns. Make sure that they do lock by manually rotating one side. If not, you will need new brush/wheel tubes.

When i tried to change the belt, the outside plate cannot be fixed back, with great difficulty I did manage, but the T2 does not move now??

You probably have the drive belts and the tensioning pulleys installed wrong. If you look at the pulley it has one circumference larger than the other. The larger one aligns with the drive belt, pulley and wheel tube so when assembled, one side will have the large diameter "in", the other out, depending on where you located the belt itself. The tensioning pulley should be 'pushing' down on one side of the belt as it travels from the drive pulley out to the wheel tube.

If all these items are installed correctly, then inspect the teeth on the belt and mating surfaces as well as inspect the drive motor to ensure it is operating properly.

Aquabot wont pump or move, intermmittent

Well either you have a jammed up motor, or a bad motor, or the Controller unit has faulted.
Above is a manual, this should help you it has exploded diagrams to help. There seem to be many ways that it could get tangled up, or maybe the belt has come off, any way it's about time to A: Get a screwdriver, or B: Call a service man....

Aquabot is pushing out water but will not move to clean the pool

I am not sure if this is the manual that you are looking for, or not, but just in case. If you following the link below it will take to you the T2 User's Guide, with the trouble shooting.

According to the trouble shooting guide:
Pumps Water, but Does Not Move or Moves Slowly
1. Remove any foreign matter that may be obstructing Drive Tracks.
2. Check Drive Belts and Tracks. Make sure they have not slipped out of place and that they're not loose.
3. Observe Drive Pulley, if it is not moving contact Customer Service.

First of all your cleaner is under warranty for 4 years or 300 cleaning cycles and is prorated. That being said, here is the schematic and contact info.
