It sounds like your gear box has gone out. If that is the case, the pool cleaners not going to work until you replace the gear box. Unfortunately, this is something that only a professional can do. Just to make sure that this is the problem, you should first check the wheels for any debris or damage. Then make sure that you don't have any clogs or jammed/cracked hoses.

I would first check for obstructions in the front and back wheel axles. Then, take the top grill off and make sure that the impeller is not jammed. It sounds more likely to me that you are having a problem with the pool cleaners gear box or drive system. If it is still under warranty, send it back to the manufacturer. If its not, you will need to have it repaired by an experienced pool repair person.

Robo-kleen only moves back every 2 feet.


You need to check your impeller and your axle bearings. To check the pool cleaners impeller, make sure that the transformer is unplugged to prevent electrical shock. Take the top grill off by removing the 2 screws from the top. Remove any debris that you find and replace the grill. Secondly, check all of the axles and the wheels for debris, hair, or lint that would restrict movement. Make sure that you do not force the wheels. If you aren't able to fix it with these solutions, it could be your gear box or another electronic section of the cleaner. You will need to have it services professionally.

My Robo Kleen motor is running but the wheels do not move. Please let me know what I can do?


There is a plastic gear in the drive motor that has a pin that goes through it and the drive shaft, this pin actually wears a slot in it from going back and forth and stops driving the unit.
You can probably hear the driver motor cycling forward and reverse.

ROBOT GOES BACK AND FORTH 2 FEET ONLY


There are several things to check for with these pool cleaners. First, make sure that there are not kinks or knots in the cable that would restrict movement. Make sure that there is not hair, fabric, or other debris in the impeller. This can also cause the back and forth movement. Check for debris or leaves caught in the axle bearings.
