Question about Dolphin Maytronics Advantage

1 Answer

Dolphin works for about 5 minutes and then stops.

My Dolphin pool cleaner will work for about five minutes and then it stops. I can restart it, but the same problem occurs. I am unsure if this a problem I can tackle or if it is better to take it for service.

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.

My dolphin begins to work, then stops. What could


There are several problems that could make these automatic pool cleaners fail to climb the walls. The cleaner could be too heavy. Empty and wash the filter bag and add floats if necessary. Make sure there is no water in the handle and that the brushes arent worn. If the cleaner is too light, add weights. If there are excessive amounts of algae on the wall, you will need to brush the walls first. The algae can prevent the cleaner from climbing. Make sure that the temp is at least 65 degrees in the pool. Make sure there is nothing caught in the impeller.

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.

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.

DOLPHIN DIAGNOSTIC AUTOMATIC POOL CLEANER STARTS AND STOPS


There may be moisture building up inside the motor housing. Try to Open it. http://www.i-love-my-aquabot-automatic-pool-cleaner.com/Maytronics-Dolphin-Repair.html

Then make sure no moisture accumulated in the circuits. Mine got the same problem.. after running trouble free for several years it suddenly stop running after the first few minutes..when i opened it a lot of moisture in the circuit. I tot it was toasted. so i took my hair blower and sealed it back and replace the moisture absober (it was soaked).. after first run it would run only the SELF TEST mode.. i tried several method to make it run all the way to the main program.. the solution.. start it and make sure it will not tilt in the first 10 minutes before you let i run sideways to the walls, this makes the program run back to normal.
