With these pool cleaners, there are a few things that you can check before you consider purchasing a new one. Make sure that you do not have any dirt or debris stuck in the drive system. If your track is worn or stretched, you can replace it and it will be much cheaper than getting a new cleaner (or the quote listed above). If you have checked for any kind of obstruction or problem with the drive system, it is probably an electrical problem.

Stalls in drive, runs grear in reverse

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Hello and welcome to FixYa....Sounds like you have a direct short in the NSS, (neutral safey switch) RLS (reverse light switch)--- if it's fuse # 11 that you are blowing, then it's the safety switch.
It's located on the transmission, passengers side, about half of the way up. It is a fan shaped switch with a big nut at the bottom, it is adjustable.
It has slider type contacts in it that slide and click into position to complete a circuit when the gear selector is moved. Depending on type of tranny, the switch serves as 2 purposes, neutral switch & backup lights. It's probably full of gunk. I have removed them, taken them apart by removing the phillips head screws, cleaned with electric contact cleaner, coated with dielectric grease, reinstalled & and got another year and a half of service.
Here is what the switch looks like....I hope this helps, good luck with your Jeep.

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.
