Most times when a cleaner won't reach the water level in a pool it is usually due to the internal floats being removed or they are no longer in good condition.
Turn the machine upside down, and remove the bag assembly. Should be foam in the plastic housing, underneath, if not replace.

If your unit has a fuse it will be on the back side of the power supply. If the light on the power supply switch is on, it will not be the fuse though.

Try turning the cleaner upside down on the deck and connect it as you otherwise would. Power it up and it should go through a self test process that takes about 40 seconds to complete. If it turns the tracks in both direction with and without the impeller turning, it is fine and will likley start working in the pool again.

If not, contact us through www.arrowpools.net and click on the FAQ and then Dolphin cleaner catagory. You can also use the Dolphin Serice button for information about sending it in for repair.

SOURCE: instruction for changing yellow track on pool cleaner

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

You remove the side plate by pulling the six screws inside the unit to expose the track. It is a bit of a challenge getting everything to line back up because the new tracks are stiff and tight but once you stretch them a little you can put them on and get the unit back together. If you would like a quote on the part (our web store is not quite finished yet) please use the contact button on our site found at www.arrowpools.net. As a repair center we can usually beat the prices of any of the aftermarket parts centers and if you have further need of technical assistance, we provide that too.

SOURCE: I have a dolphin pool cleaner and it won't sink.

If these automatic pool cleaners will not sink, 9 times out of 10 it is because air is caught in the filter bag. The best solution is to turn the Dolphin upside down under water for a few minutes to remove the air or to machine wash the filter bag.

Tip

Your Dolphin pool cleaner wont start up...


A common problem, especially with 'newer' Maytronics Dolphin brand pool cleaners is that you put the unit in the pool, or even try to turn it on after a cleaning cycle while it is still in the pool, and to that point it has worked fine. You turn the power supply on and nothing happens. You turn it off and back on and still nothing. You leave it, even over night, same thing. What do you do?

While I cannot tell you why it does this (we have a theory but can not confirm it) what usually works is to follow these steps...

1) Unplug everything. Unplug the power supply from the outlet and the Dolphin from the power supply.

2) Let the whole thing sit a couple of minutes (we want to allow any capacitors to discharge).

3) Be sure the Dolphin is out of the water and sitting upside-down on a level surface (Tracks pointing skyward).

4) Reconnect the Dolphin to the power supply and the power supply to the outlet.

5) With the Dolphin still out of the water, perform a self-test. Simply turn on the Dolphin. Within about 15 seconds it should begin to move. The tracks will spin in both directions with and without the impeller motor running at the same time. It is not unusual for the tracks to rotate at different speeds during this test. The test will last for 30 - 45 seconds or so. If it goes on indefinitely, turn it off and contact us for further direction.

6) Assuming the unit has now worked to this point, you should be able to put it back in the water and it will return to normal operation from this point on.

If it still won't run; it runs a few moments and quits the self-test; or runs continuously, contact us thru the Dolphin service form along the bottom of our home page at www.arrowpools.net.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

You'll need to send it in for service. The power supply PCB and/or bridge are likely overheating causing the circuit breaker imbedded in the switch to trip. You may also have an issue with the cable or motor unit in the cleaner so they too will need to be checked. These repairs are best done by a service center. For information on what centers are closest you can contact Maytronics at www.maytronicsus.com and they will send you repair information and a listing of service centers (we are one of them).

My Maytronics Dolphin pool cleaner does not entire pool


Check to make sure that your power supply is in a position that it can reach all sides of the pool. It may be as simple as repositioning your power supply to make it more effective. Also, with these automatic pool cleaners, you need to make sure that the filter is off, because it being on can affect where the cleaner is able to go. Finally, make sure the handle is locked in a diagonal position.

Does your power supply have the fuse on the back of it? If so, check the fuse. If not, send it in for warranty service using our dolphin service form at www.arrowpools.net.

Circuit board inside power supply is bad. I need a replacement


You'll need a replacement board. You'll need model and serial numbers off of the cleaner itslef to help identify which power supply and therefore what PCB is needed to replace yours. Try contacting our service center at www.arrowmotor.net and click the contact button in the upper right corner.
