Question about Smartpool Dolphin Robo - Kleen Above Ground Robotic Pool Cleaner

2 Answers

My Robo-Kleen does not seem to clean up anything form the pool floor. this is the first time is used it and was wondering if i missed anything. it moves around, but at the end of the cycle the filter bag was perfectly clean. there is a small button/ knob on the robot by the one wheel, there is no mention in the manual about this, do i need to do anything here?

Here is a copy of the users manual for these pool cleaners. I would go over the installation instructions again. You most likely do not have something connected properly. The button that you are talking about should be the one that controls wheel movement, but that will not have anything to do with suction. Check all of your connections (specifically) to make sure that you don't have a leak somewhere.

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.

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.

Robo Kleen pool cleaner troublshootong


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.)

I have a robo-kleen pool cleaner which stops


If debris is entering the bag, it may be as simple as that. The bag is clogged. We typically recommend hand cleaning a pool before using an auto cleaner specifically for that problem. You might have to remove and clean the bag 50-75 times. Much easier to hand vac first. If no debris is getting into the bag before it stops, it could be a problem with the motor. we have seen them "short cycle" and require replacement. Rob

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.
