I am getting a error code of 92 on my intex swg. I have put 4 - 40 lb bags into a 15 x 48 pool and brushed the bottom to distribute the salt evenly. I left the pump on for 24 hrs and then set the swg for...


I installed a new Intex ECO 8110 unit on my 15' above ground, steel sided pool. After about 10 hours of use I had the "code 92' high salt alert that shut the system down. I knew that my salinity wasn't high because the local Pinch A Penny pool store does free water analysis and i was given the okay just a week prior. We had also received a bit of rain in the interim so I knew that the alert was false.

Here is how I fixed the problem (so far).
1. Turn your unit off.
2. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet and wait for 2 minutes.
3. Unscrew the retaining nut at the electro-cell connector and unplug the connection.
4. Rotate the plug 180 degrees to reverse the polarity of the plug and re-connect to the electro-cell.
5. Reconnect the power cord to your receptacle.
6. Turn the unit on, wait for the green light to burn steady.
7. Monitor for the next 5-10 minutes.

My unit has worked flawlessly for 3 hours. If i receive another "code 92" alert i will repeat the procedure which will result in bringing the unit back to its original polarity.

Tip

Kreepy stops working


While the cleaner is supposed to be working, but has stopped moving, shake the hose. If the unit begins to work, even for a minute, the problem is usually the Swivel Cone and Bearing Washer.

Another place to look is the Footpad, the very bottom piece on the unit. The pad has raised sections which should have a texture on them. If the sections are smooth, the Footpad is worn and needs to be replaced.

Dolphin works for about 5 minutes and then stops.


There are a few trouble shooting tips you can try for these automatic pool cleaners, but if none of these work, you will want to take it into a professional. The impeller could be blocked, causing it to shut off. Clean the impeller and look for any obstructions. You drive system could be catching. Clean the tracks and wheels. The other problem would be with your electrical system. This is where you need to take it to a pro.

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.

Robo kleen stopped sucking


Make sure that your filter bag is clean and free of obstructions. You will also want to check your impeller to be sure that nothing has jammed it. A jammed impeller actually occurs pretty frequently on these automatic pool cleaners.

My kreepy Krauly will start up and within 5 stops working.


If it is a year old, replace the flapper valve. Also check your water flow and make sure it is adequate. These units are subject to wear on the foot and flapper and these should be changed each season

The cleaner will run 1-2 minutes then stop. I can shake the hose & it will start again for another minute or 2. Everything looks to be in place and working. Any suggestions would be appreicated.


First, remove and check diaphragm for cuts or rips. If ok, check hoses for leaks. You can do this by holding hoses one at a time above water level while cleaner is running(or supposed to be running). If there is a leak you will hear it sucking in air. Make sure filter is ok. If a cartridge filter, remove cartridge and run without it in. If cleaner works ok without cartridge either acid wash or replace cartridge.

Dolphin pool cleaner stops after 3-5 minutes


It is usually either the power supply or the motor unit or both. None of those items are considered do-it-yourself repairs. For information on sending the unit in for service you can check with the manufacturer at www.maytronicsus.com or try us at www.arrowpools.net. If the unit is several years old and in need of repair and also the replacement of wear items such as brushes and/or tracks, it can be cost prohibitive to fix. It is helpful if you get the serial number from the units casing when you contact us or Maytronics so we have an idea of how old it is.

I have the exact same problem with my unit!


It is probably the motor unit and should still be under warranty if it is less than 2 years old. You can use our Dolphin service form at www.arrowpools.net or contact the manufacturer at www.maytronicsus.com for service information.
