This has happened to me several times. Hair can get caught on the impeller. This causes the flap inside the jet to not close completely. Unplug the unit, remove two screws off the jet exhaust and gently remove the hair.

I have a small stream nozzle on my hose that puts out a good but of pressure. I turn the filter bag inside out and spray it til it's white. I then turn it back in and spray water from the inside out. The bag is also machine washable if it still isn't clean.
I had this same problem. I took the Rover out of the pool, removed the filter, turned it right-side-up and shot a strong blast of hose water into the outlets where the water exits to propel the Rover. Do both sides over & over a few times. That should do it.
If you can wiggle the cord and make the pool cleaner work, it sounds like an electrical problem. If this is the case, you need to have it serviced by a professional. There are a few things you can check first, though. Make sure that the filter bag is clean and clear of debris. Make sure that all lint, cloth, or debris is removed from the impeller.
Had same problem I think its s defect. I had to jump out the stingl to keep pump running because I was getting a 30 second fluctuations of voltage being passed through the line side of the switch. I had constant 110 v going in but 110 v coming out for 30 seconds then 0 v and back and forth until alarm sounded. My relays and wiring were all good so it has to be the stingl. They were in such a rush to produce them for the new law that they were not tested properly and have had many problems. This is my third stingl for the same operation all having different problems. I'd contact the company for a replacement.
If this is the type of cleaner that runs with a long hose connected and has one end stuck in the skimmer, the pool will need to be completely filled to normal level. The pool is filled with crud right? Use a long extension pole with a leaf net on the end to get out all the stuff you can. There is no way around the hard work. Don't be surprised if you need to use quite a few bags of powdered chlorine or jugs of liquid chlorine to clear the water up. Don't give up, it's gonna be hot this summer.
This happens to me when I don't take care of the cord according to the instructions. By it's very nature the Rover likes to twist its cord. Are you certain you are removing all the twists in the cord before you start cleaning? Also, are you swapping the pin on the moveable axle every time you clean? Swapping this pin changes the direction from clockwise to counterclockwise (and vice versa) and keeps the cord in reasonably good condition.
These cleaners are designed specifically for flat bottom pools so if yours is "bellied out" it will always go to the middle. They can also be pushed around by water flow. Turn off the pump while using it and see if it makes a difference.
C-Run stands for "Continuous Run" which allows the Aquabot to operate for a long, long, long enough time to get evrery nook and cranny of your pool (barring its bag from getting so clogged with leaves, dirt or D.E. filtration particles that it can't operate well).
