Question about Dolphin Maytronics Advantage

1 Answer

My dolphin diagnostic cleaner for my below ground pool, just stopped after years. I went to turn it on yesterday and there is power to the power box as the light goes on, but the unit is not moving. I am assuming it is electrical?? Could it be a fuse?

If your unit has a fuse it will be on the back side of the power supply. If the light on the power supply switch is on, it will not be the fuse though.

Try turning the cleaner upside down on the deck and connect it as you otherwise would. Power it up and it should go through a self test process that takes about 40 seconds to complete. If it turns the tracks in both direction with and without the impeller turning, it is fine and will likley start working in the pool again.

If not, contact us through www.arrowpools.net and click on the FAQ and then Dolphin cleaner catagory. You can also use the Dolphin Serice button for information about sending it in for repair.

Dolphin Interactive pool cleaner stops running


If the dolphin is falling backward when it meets the water line, there is an easy fix. The automatic pool cleaners often have this problem. The easiest solution is to remove the handle floats and attach an 8 oz weight to the bottom inlet cover.

Stops after a few feet


It can be in the power supply or the motor pack. You can contact us using the dolphin service form at www.arrowpools.net or try the manufacturer at www.maytronicsus.com.

Runs slow then stops for no apparent reason


You can contact us at www.arrowpools.net for service. There is also a FAQ for Dolphins in the FAQ section.

You can also try the manufacturer at www.maytronicsus.com for answers. It may be the power supply but is more likely an issue in the motor pack. It may still be under warranty depending on the purchase date and model. Some have 3 year motor warranties.

DOLPHIN DIAGNOSTIC AUTOMATIC POOL CLEANER STARTS AND STOPS


There may be moisture building up inside the motor housing. Try to Open it. http://www.i-love-my-aquabot-automatic-pool-cleaner.com/Maytronics-Dolphin-Repair.html

Then make sure no moisture accumulated in the circuits. Mine got the same problem.. after running trouble free for several years it suddenly stop running after the first few minutes..when i opened it a lot of moisture in the circuit. I tot it was toasted. so i took my hair blower and sealed it back and replace the moisture absober (it was soaked).. after first run it would run only the SELF TEST mode.. i tried several method to make it run all the way to the main program.. the solution.. start it and make sure it will not tilt in the first 10 minutes before you let i run sideways to the walls, this makes the program run back to normal.

Dolphin Commander goes forward 2' then back 2' then stops.


The impeller motor is likely worn out. New motor units are expensive but less so than a whole new unit. You can send it to us in Michigan at www.arrowmotor.net or find a closer service center using www.maytronicsus.com Good luck.

Circuit board inside power supply is bad. I need a replacement


You'll need a replacement board. You'll need model and serial numbers off of the cleaner itslef to help identify which power supply and therefore what PCB is needed to replace yours. Try contacting our service center at www.arrowmotor.net and click the contact button in the upper right corner.
