Check the bag of your pool cleaner to make sure that it doesn't have any holes or tears that should not be there. Some fine particles will not be picked up by pool cleaners, no matter how effective. If your filter is not catching the debris, you might need to manually brush the bottom and sides in order stir the dirt up into the filter.

Works fine for 5 or 10 minutes then shuts off

Bag may be full or filter is blocked by very fine particles. I'd change the bag to see if it made any diference.

Check the line going from the bottom of the vacuum to the bag, it may be clogged. A coat hanger can help you clear any jams, but be careful not to puncture the duct.

My electrolux ambassador stopped working suddenly

This may be a bit late, but if you're using an afterfilter on your vacuum, check it. These should be changed every sixth bag or so. If not, it will get extremely dirty and block the airflow, causing the motor to overheat and shut off.
There could be other problems, but this is the easiest thing to check, and the quickest fix. You don't really need the afterfilter to continue using the vacuum. It's there to prevent fine dust particles that have gotten through the bag from returning to the home. With the new bags out now, it's kind of obsolete, but HEPA afterfilters are made for newer Aerus Electrolux vacuums for folks concerned with fine pollens and dust, and those with allergies.
If you've ever had a bag break, then dirt has also gotten into the motor. This will cause problems, and the motor should be cleaned as soon as possible. The wiring can be checked while this is done, as a loose wire can also cause this problem.

Will not clean shallow end of pool heads directly to deep end

Make sure that the Floating Handle is locked diagonally across the top of your Aquabot's body.
Clean the Filter Bag thoroughly so that the fine particles of dirt that get trapped within the fibers of the
Filter Bag are removed. To test if the Filter Bag is inhibiting the
Aquabot's performance simply remove the Filter Bag and operate the cleaner without it. If the Aquabot then pumps
water strongly, and climbs the walls properly, the Bag most likely requires a thorough cleaning

Hi there Our vacuum cleaner exerts no pressur and it doesnt **** anything from mat,, it is just 4 months old bt we have missed the receipt,, cadsn u please help us? thanks and regar

Check your filter/bag especially if you've used it to clean fine particles; they will tend to clog the filters or bag and cause loss of performance. It the filters/bag are good and/or new, check for an obstruction in the hose or suction tube.

Bag not filling-seems all the debris is going into the motor

Maybe your just a really clean person and have little dirt. If its picking up stuff and you dont see it it has to be going in the air or bag though. vacume in a room with sunshine comming in and see if you notice excess dust when you push/pull it. If no excessive (where it come out and you see it fall) it is going in the bag. If you see dirt falling all around these are the bigger particles and arnt going into the bag. Look for a place for the bag to be loose ot yjr plate it mounts to being loose.
let me know what you find. Please rate me as high as you can and thanks for using fix  ya.

Actually the problem is inside of the canister itself. You need to change a part called the control valve. Occaisonally when fine particles get inside of the valve it damages the inside of the valve, sending a false reading to the main motor, causing it to shut off. This is a relatively quick and easy repair and should be recieved on a same day basis.

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71

The part that you call the particle size sensetivity adjuster is bad. There are 2 seals in the assembly, the lower seal is slipping out of place because the plastic lip which keeps it in place is broken. Split housings and replace part. This machine is alot of work to take appart and get back together correctly. Might want to bring to local vac shop. good luck.
