My Tiger shark was repaired with a new motor last fall. This is the first time it has been used since then. When putting in the water it is running but fails to go forward or backward! What can I do?

It sounds like there may be a problem with the drive gear mechanism or drive belt

The pool cleaners impeller may be clogged or jammed with debris. Check and clean if necessary. The brush rollers or drive tracks could also be stuck. Check for debris and remove. It is most likely one of these problems if it is shutting off after only seconds of running. If these don't seem to be the problem, I would check your power source.

Was the store able to scan the motor to pull out operational info? Was it water tested prior to being returned to you? Perhaps the store will make accomodations to get it returned and repaired correctly?

Acqua water shark won't move


This action is a typical response to a drive motor unit with water intrusion. While the motor is probably not completely water-filled, the amount in there gets circulated when the motor first starts and the internal motor circuitry detect the water and shuts down the drive motor as a safety feature.
I was able to take apart my drive motor on another brand, dry it out, and reseal the casing using silicone rubber.
Drive motors are expensive, but generally, still a good value compared to buying a new unit. If you can repair or replace the motor yourself, it becomes economically feasible.
If you do repair the unit, always be vigilant and remove the unit as soon as it has done its job. Water pressure is always trying to push water into the sealed motor units, and over time, it WILL get in...so let your robot dry out between uses.

The motor pack is having trouble and will need to be replaced (most likely). For help finding a service center that can perform the inspection and repairs check Hayward's site at http://www.haywardnet.com/locator/ and fill in the information requested. Be sure to select product repair or service and robotic cleaners to limit the response to those able to fix these cleaners. We are in S.E. Michigan and are one of the centers for Tiger Shark cleaners.

Aquavac Tiger shark won't operate


The power supply powers on even when it doesn't output any voltage, so it's kind of misleading. You should have the power supply checked or you can do it yourself if you have a multi-meter, by measuring the output and making sure there is 24V.

Plugged in and turned on but doesn't move


look at the rubber belt wrapping the wheels, there are some little rubber numbs along the belt in order to grap the wheels and make them move. If some of the numbs are broken, the grab is too week to move the wheels. I guess, replace the belt is the only solution
