Question about Pentair Prowler 720 Pool Cleaner

1 Answer

Prowler 720 won't run

When I push the button on the power pack of my prowler 720 the green light comes on for a second or two and shuts off. The cleaner never comes on at all. If I unplug the cord from the power pack to the cleaner the light stays on as it should. So I'm guessing I have a motor that went up? The cord first goes into the drive motor, Is that my problem. It's a 500 dollar part wich is half the cost of a new unit!

The power cord pins are numbered, 1 through 4. So are the transformer plug holes (the female pin holes in the "power pack"). For example, if you don't match number 1 to number 1, the green power light on the transformer will light for about 5 or 10 seconds, but the robot will sit there... well, like a powerless robot. Match the pin hole numbers and you have a working robot!

When we push the power button on the remote or on the tv the green light comes on for one second and then shuts off ... tv won't turn on


you have a short circuit in the power supply.
1) test the power cord very well
2) test the main swithc for short or open
3)test the power supply, look for a short in transformer+coil+filter+diode+rectifier. and replace
4)test the HVRECT+fLYBACK+ horizontal output for +125Vdc +vertical output for +80Vdc ALL this go to the CRT
color +12vdc+other circuit +12vdc. The first thing do you will have is RASTER, see the block. d
God bless you
