    Yes, the solution was helpful. I will check the voltage and try again when the sweep dries out.

I imagine that even though they are meant to be water tight, some moisture may have gotten into the unit and caused problems. Unfortunately there could be many many things that can cause these units to stop working.. From my experience there is little a home serviceman could do other than check all the obvious things. I recommend that you contact the manufacturer and ask for a referral to a n authorised service center, then when there ask for a "Quote" before proceeding with any repairs, that way at least you can get an indication of costings before you start.
Check for Voltage at the unit also, if you have the equipment and are so inclined.

Ive got a d90d25eslr111-b1 micro combi,i poached an egg ani ie exploded in the micro,it blew the electic and went off,if i swith it on its ok,as soon as i shut the door it fuses the electric. why plea


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostats.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermoprotector may have tripped. This is a safety device to prevent the microwave from overheating. It can be tested for continuity to see if it's blown.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the high voltage transformer might have an intermittent short. This is not common. Check other components related to the microwave symptom first.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and control panel might be defective. There are several other components that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components before replacing this board.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops there may be a short circuit in the main control board. Check other components first, these boards are often misdiagnosed.
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently.

Your Dolphin pool cleaner wont start up...


A common problem, especially with 'newer' Maytronics Dolphin brand pool cleaners is that you put the unit in the pool, or even try to turn it on after a cleaning cycle while it is still in the pool, and to that point it has worked fine. You turn the power supply on and nothing happens. You turn it off and back on and still nothing. You leave it, even over night, same thing. What do you do?

While I cannot tell you why it does this (we have a theory but can not confirm it) what usually works is to follow these steps...

1) Unplug everything. Unplug the power supply from the outlet and the Dolphin from the power supply.

2) Let the whole thing sit a couple of minutes (we want to allow any capacitors to discharge).

3) Be sure the Dolphin is out of the water and sitting upside-down on a level surface (Tracks pointing skyward).

4) Reconnect the Dolphin to the power supply and the power supply to the outlet.

5) With the Dolphin still out of the water, perform a self-test. Simply turn on the Dolphin. Within about 15 seconds it should begin to move. The tracks will spin in both directions with and without the impeller motor running at the same time. It is not unusual for the tracks to rotate at different speeds during this test. The test will last for 30 - 45 seconds or so. If it goes on indefinitely, turn it off and contact us for further direction.

6) Assuming the unit has now worked to this point, you should be able to put it back in the water and it will return to normal operation from this point on.

If it still won't run; it runs a few moments and quits the self-test; or runs continuously, contact us thru the Dolphin service form along the bottom of our home page at www.arrowpools.net.

Hi, my smartpool dolphin robo doesn't move any more. It seems stuck on the ground. When I 've started to understand why, i've discovered that out of the water, the wheels turn few seconds in...


There are two things that you can check yourself if these pool cleaners are not moving properly. First, check the impeller. Make sure that the transformer is unplugged and take the top grill off by removing the 2 screws from the top. Check for debris and remove if you see anything. Replace the grill and tighten the screws before you try the cleaner again. Also, check your front and rear wheels. Debris and leaves can get caught in the axle bearings. Make sure this is not the case. If one of these does not solve the problem, it could be your gear box and you will have to have it serviced by a professional.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


For starters, try the tip I posted here on Fixya, found at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3651526-dolphin_pool_cleaner_wont_start_up. If that is not enough, try our sites FAQ section on Dolphins at www.arrowpools.net. Select the FAQ button then from the drop-down select Dolphin.

If none of this helps your problem could be in the power supply, cable or motor unit. The motor unit is the most likely problem.

It is not recommended you open the cord end that connects to the motor unit as you are breaking the seal for the submersible electronics. For information about sending your unit in for repair use the dolphin form link on the bottom of our site.

1 Answer

Dolphin works for about 5 minutes and then stops.


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.
