I consulter the owners manual for this model. This is what they suggest.

First, remove all of the air from the cleaner head and stop all air from entering the pool through the return lines. Also, if the head and hose are covered with bubbles, give the hose a good tug. This will release the air bubbles and allow the pool cleaners to settle son the bottom of the pool. Also, the cleaner head may actually be being lifted off the bottom of the pool by the hose or the pressure in the return lines. Make sure that the hose stays untangled and the pressure from the return lines is not too low (not enought pressure to power) or too high (too much pressure that cause the unit to lift off the floor).

you'll need to increase the suction so it will climb. If it used to climb before and now it won't, even with new feet, it may be a bearing problem with either the turbine or the A-frames. You may have to get a turbine kit with a-frames to make it work like new again.

Check your shoes and wings to make sure that they are not worn and don't have debris lodged in them. Make sure that your hose is the proper length and doesn't have obstructions. It could also be a steering failure. To check for steering failure, make sure that your rear screen is clean, make sure your cone gears are free and clean, and make sure that your gear box is clean and working properly. It is common for these pool cleaners to have one of these problems. Also, make sure that you have the proper tension in your rear flap.

Make sure that your shoes and wings are installed properly and not worn. This is the most common issue with these pool cleaners. Improper water flow could also be the problem. Check with the water flow gauge. Make sure there is no blockage in the cleaner's throat and that there is proper tension in the rear flap.

My aquabot keeps trying to come out of the pool


Aquabots are interesting little robots! They're made to clean the entire surface of the bottom of the pool, and in regards to cleaning the sides, they are programed to climb walls, but once they reach the surface the programming recognizes the specific angle of the top and sends it back down the wall. Normally an Aquabot should never leave the pool. It should reach the surface and go back down the wall to continue cleaning. Good luck!

i have run into this problem with a few units. as a hayward guy, i called support and was informed that there is too much flow through the unit. there are two physical adjustments. the top of the unit has a restrictor plate that simply screws into the top. after that, there is a secondary restriction plate available ... simply a washer that affixes onto the first restrictor plate. if the problem persists, dont clean filters as much so that there is restriction there.

If the cleaner is getting stuck on objects (steps, ladder, corners, benches, etc), you need to remove the dive float restrictor and install a wall climb adjuster. It is part number K12065. Anyone that sells Pentair products should have one. This will keep your pool cleaner from becoming stuck. It might also help with the seal problem, but that is most likely something caught in the flapper. Check to be sure that the pool cleaners getting proper flow and that the flapper is clear of debris.

The dolphin maytronics does not climb the wall


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


Several possibilities to consider...

How old is the filter bag and is it clean?
Older bags or bags not thoroughly cleaned can resist water passing thru them to the point there is not enough downward pressure to allow the unit to 'bite' the pool surface and climb.

How worn are the brushes and tracks?
Worn brushes and tracks will slip once worn enough. Replacing them could fix the problem.

Is it trying to climb or does the unit start up the wall and immediately reverse?
If your motor has been replaced new style motors spend far less time climbing assuming most debris will instead be found on the pool floor. If it has not been recently replaced the program within the motor may be failing.

What is the condition of the pool?
Low water temperatures and/or algae can cause the unit to slip in place and as a result it will not climb. Eventually it will scrub enough to gain traction and will slowly progress up the wall. For temperatures below 70 degrees the unit will find in more and more difficult to climb the lower the temperature.

What material is the pool surface?
Some linered pools and fiberglass pools require climbing rings in the brushes. Do you have those? If so, what condition are they in? Worn rings or missing rings will prevent climbing those and other smooth pool finishes.

I put the eyeball diverter on my pool and the cleaner runs up to it and the hose hangs on it. I keep my hose laying out strait when not in use. It does seem to stay on the sides also.


If the eyeball diverter is not working, you might need to install a wall climb adjuster (Part #K12065). This will keep the automatic pool cleaner on the pool's floor and walls and away from pool obstructions. Make sure the narrow end of the wall climb adjuster points down to the drive tubes.

Enchanted climbing level help


I have made to the second climbing level but can't get rid of the giant monster.... It killed me 3 times................... For the first climbing level you have to go where the angry mushroom is and make Gisele walk between the wall and the small vine fence, The best way to do it is to make Gisele follow the wall by going against it. the rest is pretty easy just follow the instructions.( It's the wall on the right)
