Most times when a cleaner won't reach the water level in a pool it is usually due to the internal floats being removed or they are no longer in good condition.
Turn the machine upside down, and remove the bag assembly. Should be foam in the plastic housing, underneath, if not replace.

The motor pack is failing and will need to be serviced which is not a do-it-yourself sort of project. Of course that may not stop you from trying but you will find that parts are not available inside the motor pack and that replacing it, if necessary, is best done in a service center to maintain new motor warranty. For price estimates on a replacement or to browse a FAQ on dolphins check out our site at www.arrowpools.net or you can contact the manufactrure's US rep at www.maytronicsus.com.

Check to make sure that your power supply is in a position that it can reach all sides of the pool. It may be as simple as repositioning your power supply to make it more effective. Also, with these automatic pool cleaners, you need to make sure that the filter is off, because it being on can affect where the cleaner is able to go. Finally, make sure the handle is locked in a diagonal position.

There are several problems that could make these automatic pool cleaners fail to climb the walls. The cleaner could be too heavy. Empty and wash the filter bag and add floats if necessary. Make sure there is no water in the handle and that the brushes arent worn. If the cleaner is too light, add weights. If there are excessive amounts of algae on the wall, you will need to brush the walls first. The algae can prevent the cleaner from climbing. Make sure that the temp is at least 65 degrees in the pool. Make sure there is nothing caught in the impeller.

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

Tip

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.

Dolphin pool cleaner stops working after a 15 to 30 minutes. Even though the cycle time is set to 8 hours. How can I fix ?


It sounds like you might have a problem with the impeller or drive shaft, which are both common problems with these pool cleaners. Clean around your impeller and your wheels, axles, etc. If these do not cure your problem, it is probably an issue with your electrical system.

Dolphin pool cleaner won't go up to top of the pool , only half way up the wall


Most times when a cleaner won't reach the water level in a pool it is usually due to the internal floats being removed or they are no longer in good condition.
Turn the machine upside down, and remove the bag assembly. Should be foam in the plastic housing, underneath, if not replace.

Dolphin Commander goes forward 2' then back 2' then stops.


The impeller motor is likely worn out. New motor units are expensive but less so than a whole new unit. You can send it to us in Michigan at www.arrowmotor.net or find a closer service center using www.maytronicsus.com Good luck.
