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.

My Robo-kleen go back and forth. I removed limit screws up front and nothing change.

I would check your front drive wheels and back idler wheels for debris or leaves. If something has become lodged in the pool cleaners axles, it could be preventing full motion. You can also check for an obstruction in the impeller (take the top grill off and check for an obstruction). If it is not either of these, it is probably going to be a malfunctioning gear box or drive system. If that is the case, you will have to have it repaired by an authorized pool professional that handles robotic pool cleaners.

Robo - Kleen Above Ground Robotic Pool Cleaner seems to be leaking oil? Also, fan does not seem to be running all the time?

Motor is in oil bath. When it leaks that means water is getting into motor housing. Try and take apart to clean and dryout. Then needs to be sealed and filled with oil. This worked with mine not sure what type oil. Looks like mineral oil or something similar.

You might need to perform some maintenance on the automatic pool cleaner wheels and drive system. Remove debris or tree leaves caught in the axle bearing. Do not turn the drive wheels by force. This may cause damage to the drive gear train.

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.

One thing that you might want to try on these pool cleaners is removing the limit screw on the axle for greater angle of tandem wheels. Make sure your filter bag is not clogged or partially clogged because this cause restrict movement. Check for debris jammed in your drive system (wheels, axles, etc.)

Wondering if a robo-kleen robotic pool cleaner can be used in an inground pool?

You will find it won't climb walls, but should clean just fine on the bottom area.
