broken cable
by: ADMIN

I will guarantee to you the broken wire is at the point where it clamps to the handle.

blowing fuses
by: Anonymous

I have an Aquabot classic. When I turn it on, it works for a bit, then the fuse blows. I think it must be the cable, because if I unplug the cable, and turn it on, the fuse doesn't blow.

YEsterday I pulled the cable completely out of the water, I put the aquabot into the water and I held it and then I had my wife turn it on. Worked great. Then I started feeding the cable into the water. Perhaps 10 feet of cable was in the water, then the fuse blew.

So it doesn't sound like the short is near the Aquabot?

I guess I need to replace the cable.

Dead Short
by: ADMIN

You have a broken wire or corroded terminal at the end of the cable. Fix it yourself for pennies or take it to the shop where you will be sold a new cable for about$200

fuse blows
by: Mike

The fuse in my turbo t was blown when I came home one night. I disconnected the robot from the transformer, installed a new fuse and it blew the second I turned on the transformer.Do I have to send it in for service?

Blown fuse commonly caused by a short in the cable...
by: ADMIN

and many shorts in the cable are caused by abuse. If the cable is not coiled after every use then that is abuse.

Blown fuse

I used my bot maybe 10 times, now it continues to blow fuses, this is ridiculous. Of coarse, it is 12 and 1/2 month old and out of warranty.

Get a new servicer
by: Anonymous

The first problem is the servicing company. No way a healthy robot needs the fuse pulled to start.

aquabot xtreme shuts off after 2 minutes
by: Anonymous

I have an aquabot xtreme that is exactly 1 year old. It shuts off after running in the pool for 2 minutes. I take the fuse out, put it back in, it runs again for about 2 minutes then shuts off again! I brought it to be serviced and they found nothing wrong with it. What could be the problem?

Switch? What model?
by: Anonymous

Could be the switch. In the future, please indicate what model robot you are referring to.

fuse blown?
by: Anonymous

Transformer won't turn on despite moving to different outlets and resetting. Only few months old. Seems like fuse blew but don't know where that is and size of fuse to replace. Thanks

Fuse blowing
by: Anonymous

Just found this post related to blowing fuses. I followed the directions here and found that the wire must have been shorting out in the wire right where it coonected to the robot. I did the repair and my Aquabot is now back in service. Thanks for the help....

short
by: curt

Most often the problem is broken wires in the floating cable at the handle. Often times the broken ends will touch inside the insulation. Cut the cable several inches from the handle, crimp on new connectors. power up the cable and see if the fuse burns. then power up the pump and motor separately. if either pump or motor burn the fuse then the bad component must be replaced.

Blowing Fuses
by: Jerry in MD

I am having the same issue. I am getting 30+ volts at transformer. All wires in terminal are nice and clean with no signs of water damage. Cord checks out OK however, I am getting continuity between the black and white pump wires. Motor in not binding.
Help!
