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.

My robo kleen moves around the pool but has no suction so it won't pick up any debris

i had that problem, past year
open the motor check for rust stains on the round magnetic surface
i used a steel or copper brillo pad dry to sand down the surface
careful with those plastic motor screw washers to secure motor

My robokleen won't **** anything up, impeller not plugged or stuck, just not turning, moves just fine

i thought the problem was the grease also until i seen another sales web page decription, it said NO OIL TO LEAK OUT, so i opened it up again after it shut off every day for 10 minutes of use , but still rolled
i seen the circuit board inside the air tight pump, somehow some water must have mixed with the greased part and i dried it with a cloth put it back together and it ran for about 20 minutes, then stopped, i tightend the screws as much as i could without harming the thread holes, if you break them your out of luck, did not see any seal but im sure the factory put something to keep it water proof

My robo kleen pool cleaned keeps flipping upside down. happens every time, i will watch it for a few minutes then come back later to check on it and it is upside down in the pool

check to see if the fan on top moves
if its stuck , then the motor is not pumping constant
and the pump may need some kind of lube
graphite perhaps

Turns on but won't move.

With these pool cleaners, the first thing you will want to check is for an obstruction in the drive shaft. Hair, leaves, and even cloth gets stuck sometimes and prevents movement. Make sure that you have sufficient water flow. Make sure that your impeller is not jammed. If none of these things seem to be wrong, it is probably going to be your electrical system.
