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 !

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.

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
