If it drives but does not pick up anything
then thats the motor with the prop, water gets in it
but there are two screws with metal plate on back of motor
and a round plug then a green plug to let the water from your pool out

SOURCE: robo kleen stopped working, motor starts but it does not move

Hello, I think I had the same problem with mine : the filterpump worked, but robot didn't move. I opened it up and the problem seemed to be that the pin which locks up the gear wheel to the axle of the front wheels had broken into three pieces. We inserted a new pin (nail, screw etc) and the Robo kleen works just fine again. Maybe you should check this is also the problemwith yours. Good luck !

SOURCE: Robo Kleen moves but does not clean

If you can, connect it to the back wash of your pool fiter pump. Just for a few secondds that usually works well.

SOURCE: robo kleen wont back up

Since I can't see your unit, lets go over some basic trouble shooting for this particular type of swimming pool cleaner. If your cord is tangles, you might want to start by straightening it out. If you lay it out in the sun for a few hours, it will be much easier to work with. Make sure that you do not have hair or other substances caught in your impeller. Make sure that there are not leaves or debris caught in the axle bearings on the wheels. I bet one of these adjustments is going to correct your problem.

SOURCE: My Robo kleen stop working at the end of last

Sounds like you have found the problem. Change the Black Pack. Not sure the pack is available as a seperate part. Suggest you contact Robo Kleen for that info.

SOURCE: My Robo Kleen motor is running but the wheels 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.
i have photos of a modification to fix this
