Next, as a suggestion. Purchase an Emerson Pool motor. The electrical connection is the same for 110/220 volts. All you have to do is move the switch by the electrical connections and select 110 or 220 volts. They usually come preset on 220 but I would check anyway. Also, don't forget the ground wire (green) and also connecting the bonding wire on the outside of the motor near the plastic cover for wiring. If you don't have bonding I would get it real soon! Hope this helps..

On this automatic pool cleaner, this is usually an easy thing to fix. First, make sure that your filter bag is clean and free of obstructions. Next, take of your head float and shake it. If you can hear water inside, you will need to order a new head float and install it. They are usually inexpensive and easy to replace. Make sure the hose floats are evenly placed and make sure that the cleaner is not getting too much pressure from the return lines.

It could be the pump is bound up but it is more likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.
If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage.
