Odds are you have an "Aqua Luminator" or "Johnny Light" style light that has replaced your factory style return or discharge on above ground pool. It usually contains two lens, bulb with fixture and step down transformer/switch. These lights usually contain a fountain attachment that makes circulation even worse. If it is this style of light you have a couple of options.
1. Rotate the housing 90deg (from top to side) so that the slotted discharge is pushing the water into the pool in a direction that helps circulation. Be careful to rotate only the outside housing. You do not want to twist the liner into the return/light fixture. Usually you will have to loosen or remove the light bulb prior to doing so.
2. If you want to remove the light and discharge, unplug the transformer/power. Unscrew and remove the lock nut on the outside of the pool that holds the bulb in. Once removed the bulb is connected with two terminals these simply pull apart. Once removed the discharge will push water into the pool without direction. This will help prevent algae build up from poor circulation.
If you want to remove the light fixture once and for all, drain the water level below the discharge port. Once the bulb and slotted cover is removed you will see a flange inside the pool. The flange inside the pool will have 4 tabs, simply grasp and turn counter clockwise. This will remove it from the casing and you will be able to replace it with a standard directional return or discharge. Bear in mind certain pools have different size gaskets and parts, so it is best to know this information prior.

On this automatic pool cleaner, this is usually an easy thing to fix. First, make sure that your filter bag is clean and free of obstructions. Next, take of your head float and shake it. If you can hear water inside, you will need to order a new head float and install it. They are usually inexpensive and easy to replace. Make sure the hose floats are evenly placed and make sure that the cleaner is not getting too much pressure from the return lines.

It is either going to be that your impeller is blocked or your drive system has something stuck in it. Check your wheels, axles, etc. for obstructions. If it is not either one of these, it is going to be an issue with the electrical system and you are going to have to take it into a pro that specializes in robotic pool cleaners.
