the part number is 224517-1 and you should be able to find it at any hardware store that sells Makita tools or you can buy it online from "makitausa.com" they also have a service center locator that you can use to buy it locally. Let me know if you need more assistance.
could be a couple things. UNPLUG tool and remove one handle half and see if it is jammed up with lambswool from the bonnet. It can get under the brushes causing the erratic power. If thoroughly clean the entire motor housing and then remove and check the brushes for wear. Let me know if you need more assistance.
bad news to you.(don't get mad at me please). 2 prong means is a "DOUBLE INSULATED" vacuum. any electrical repairs are not recommendable other by a shop because after repairs they have to test for grounding with a special meter to prevent electirical shocks. for that reason I personally can not give advice on how to do it. if you want to take the risk, well.... good luck to you. I do this for your safety and ours. I hope you understand my position.
The cord goes into a water-sealed unit on the drive motor internal to your aquabot, so the unit has to be partially disassembed to gain access to the drive motor. The one thing you probably do not have, which you will need to do the job, is the waterproof sealing putty which your supplier can send to you at a small cost. If you happen to be near Phoenix AZ I can help you put on the new cord, and this website gives plenty of info, too: httpp://www.i-love-my-aquabot-automatic-pool-cleaner.com/ S Christian dansker01@#msn.com
Hi, Unfortunately there is no external test, It has to be opened and troubleshot with a multimeter. Especially something with a variable speed controller, power cord, brushes, switches, ect. It could be several things. If you are technical enough to take it apart let us know we will try to help. Good Luck to you!
Hi hope to help
Have you tried this unplug the machine! then cut the cable about 6" from the machine then strip the machine and rewire the long length of cable back to the switch. The 6" that has been cut from the machine discard it.
The problem i used to get is where the cable is clamped in the handle the wire inside the insulation cracks so that when the machine is in one position is ok but then when is moved it goes off again.
It also could be the field coil (part of the motor) if it gets hot then cuts out the field could be braking down!!!
hope this helps.
