This is a pretty common problem with these automatic pool cleaners and it usually has a very easy solution. First, even though this seems obvious, make sure that the cable is uncoiled completely and is not blocking water flow. Secondly, make sure that the filter bag is clean and that the impellers are not blocked. Finally, make sure that there is no debris/leaves caught in the axle bearings of the wheels.

How to replace floating power cord

i cut the black wire inside the car with no blue on it (on the side where you can move it out of the way )
there is two wires inside the black one, strip and twist
then electrical tape on each one so they dont touch together
then waterproof with more tape
did this when i replaced the motor, and it worked for me.
the wire is soldered inside the brain and its pretty hard to do it the correct way

My robo kleen moves around the pool but has no suction so it won't pick up any debris

i had that problem, past year
open the motor check for rust stains on the round magnetic surface
i used a steel or copper brillo pad dry to sand down the surface
careful with those plastic motor screw washers to secure motor

My robo kleen pool cleaned keeps flipping upside down. happens every time, i will watch it for a few minutes then come back later to check on it and it is upside down in the pool

check to see if the fan on top moves
if its stuck , then the motor is not pumping constant
and the pump may need some kind of lube
graphite perhaps

My robo kleen is brand new and from day one, it just rocks back and forth. It moves forward about 1 foot and then back about 1 foot.

Sounds like water in the motor . had the same problem and after drying out it worked for a week then the same problem

I have a Robo Kleen robotic pool cleaner, it still moves around but is no longer picking anything up. The bag is clean. Can I purchase a pump for it?

You should be able to purchase pumps for these automatic pool cleaners from a pool supply company, but I would take it to a professional first. It could be something that is easily fixed without purchasing an expensive part.

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.
i have photos of a modification to fix this

I have a yellow and green robo kleen. the motor is working but the unit snd wheels do not move.

With these automatic pool cleaners, it is often a problem with the impeller or axles having an obstruction that is preventing proper movement. Check your impeller and the front and rear wheel axles for cloth, leaves, etc. that could be blocking the movement.
