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.

With these automatic pool cleaners, it is probably a block somewhere. Either the impeller or the front or rear wheels probably have an obstruction. Take the top cover off and make sure the impeller has not trapped a leaf, etc. Then, do the same with the wheels, making sure they are free to turn.

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.

Robo kleen pool vaccum- not sucking- wheels move - prop on top turns very slow


if you hear a buzzing sound
there is water in the motor
if it drives ok, the power supply should be ok
try draining the water out of the small plate and plug shown
when you take out the filter bag
it will probably happen again
but a motor can be expensive to replace

My robo kleen pool cleaner motor and pump run but the unit will not roll


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 working, motor starts but it does not move


Hello, I think I had the same problem with mine : the filterpump worked, but robot didn't move. I opened it up and the problem seemed to be that the pin which locks up the gear wheel to the axle of the front wheels had broken into three pieces. We inserted a new pin (nail, screw etc) and the Robo kleen works just fine again. Maybe you should check this is also the problemwith yours. Good luck !
