dolphin Primal X3 stopped moving
by: Rob

My primal x3 worked perfect last week. Today I turned it on and the powersupply that was replaced 3 months ago by maytronics seems to work fine, however the robot does not move. Completely dead. I checked the output of the powersupply and am getting 29.1 volts. Cable looks fine. Am I assuming its a dead motor? I just would like to confirm as I've never been thrilled with this robot anyway, so if the motors dead, I'll buy something else before bothering to repair.

Power supply stopped working
by: Rob

My dolphin primal X3, with 9995672 power supply had a problem last night. I pushed power on supply and I heard a crackling noise. I tried again and same thing and it appears I popped the breaker on the outlet. Is there a way to repair the powersupply? If I bought a new powersupply, can I be sure that it didn't damage the robot?

Dead Short.
by: ADMIN

Somewhere is a broken wire. If the power supply powers up without the robot plugged in then go on to disconnecting the cable from the robot and turn on the power supply with the addition of the disconnected cable. If no blown fuse then the problem in in the motor case and this will need replacing.

The same voltage is important. Depending on the machine the voltage will be AC or DC and the correct one must be used.

Dolphin 2002 runs for 45 sec and stops
by: Tom

Hi,
I have loved my Dolphin for the past 10 years. Runs fine. I have had it tangled in a few goggles and toys here and there over the years, but it did not seem to affect it's performance. Now it just started cutting out after 45 seconds of the start-up process. I checked the impeller and it was definitely not starting up along with the drive motors. I took it apart and all of the bearings seem fine. The timing track teeth definitely are worn to tiny triangles. I opened the motor and had to clean out the "moisture preventer" bag which had opened up and spilled inside. Motors seem sealed though, so no problem. Without any load, the motors still cut out after 45 seconds (although the impeller is now running fine). Power pack seems to put out a consistent 31-35VDC. There is a click heard inside the motor pack when it cuts off. Could it be the circuit board in the motor?
Thanks,
Tom

X5 Stopped Working - Please Help

I have a Maytronics X5. Recently found that the impeller was shattered (have no idea how). I've cleaned all the debris and broken parts out. Unit starts up initially and both tracks move. After ~20sec tracks stop moving and then impeller motor starts but shuts down after 10sec. After that, nothing else. Fearing moisture on the circuit board I opened the motor unit but everything looks good and no moisture. I've tried resetting and nothing. Advice?

I have a DX3 that is 2 years old now. Worked fine up until now.

When I plug the power supply into the outlet all the lights (including the on button) flash momentarily and then go out. Nothing else happens. Dolphin does not move and I can't seem to get the power supply to turn on.

The lights flash again momentarily when the power supply is unplugged.

Dolphin M4
by: Brown


I am having a problem with my Dolphin Supreme M4 by Maytronics.
When I turn on the power supply the impeller turns for about 1 second and then stops. I have turned it by hand and it seems to be free. It is a little stiff but does not seem excessive . If your turn it swiftly by hand it will turn but stops quickly. It does not continue to spin freely. This appears normal to me.
I have checked the prongs on the power supply.
#1 is at 27.7 v
#2 is at 2 volts, it surges to approximately 4 or 5 v after it has been on for 3 or 4 seconds. This appears that it might be the same instant that the impeller turns for one second. The voltage returns to 2 v
I can turn the power supply off, wait a few seconds and turn it back on and it will repeat the same process.

I would appreciate any insight you could give me. I really need this fixed. It is an awesome machine and I don’t want to start the year without it.
Thanks

Owner's robot worked 1 minute at a time, fixed
by: ADMIN

This comment just came in from an owner in Israel.

"My Dolphin robot was working for one minute and then stopping. The robot was just fine. The problem was with the power supply. One the four wires connected to the PCB on right inside the power supply was burnt due to heavy current load. It was barely connected and this was the reason for the problem. Once I replaced it, the robot started working again."

Your dolphin has most likely a problem inside the motor unit; either the electronic circuit board has a error or the track motor(s) are defectiv; corroded, or cole connections. Without opening the motor or with a special service unit it is not possible to find out. Regards vette

What type of remote control for a Dynamic 2002?
by: Vette

I got my hand on a used remote control (RC91752, black and. Green T-Type, says Maytronics 2002, Ver 65, ID. No. 03, after switch on). I tried to use it on my Dynamics 2002 (which has a 6H Dynamic DC motor unit installed). I can't get the Dolphin controlled trough the Joystick, it looks like the two devices aren't communicating to each other.
Questions 1: Are these two devices compatible, meaning should the work together?
Question 2: Do I have to configure the 2 devices, that they are able to communicate to together? (Matching ID's or somethng?)
Question 3: How can I do this? What are the steps to achive this?
Any answers more that welcome.
Thanks vette

Correction, The distance between the inner center and outermost ring is 3/8 inch.
I tried to prop it up with some glue. I was thinking of cutting it between the smooth part & the threads, about 3/4 inch down the shaft.

This caused the pool cleaner to lose all power, as you can see, the outer connection is worn down.

Help, my pool is turning green!
by: JT

I purchased my 2nd dolphin cleaner last year. The first one lasted 10 years with no problems. The new one stopped working last week. I called Maytronics and was directed to a two page troubleshooting guide(worthless). When I turn the cleaner on the fan will run for 3 seconds, off for 3 seconds. After 3or 4 times the brushes will turn about 6 inches and that's it. Any suggestions? Is there an authorized repair company in the Maryland area? I took it to Leslie's Pool's where I purchased it but they don't service this cleaner.

Dolphin diagnostic ECB
by: Grant Cooley

I have a 2004 maytronics diagnostic which I purchased when my 2001 died. My 2004 quit working so I started trouble shooting both units. Power supplies on both are good, power cable on both are good, impeller motors on both are good, drive motors on both are good. When I opened the sealed unit on the 2004 unit I found R15 burned. If I jumper around it the drive motor will run, the impeller motor will run intermittent, the LED is blinking. The resistor appears to be a 6.51 ohm. Can I buys resistor or just send in the ECB?
On the older unit there is one large resistor which appears burnt, not sure of the value. Any way to get the ECB repaired or get a set of schematics?
After spending over $2,000 for the two of these, I really do not want to spend another thousand dollars when the total cost of repair parts would be less than five dollars

If your Dolphin moves a little bit and the impeller spins, but then stops after about 15 seconds it could be the graphite powder used on the motor getting onto the control circuit board.

Open up the unit and vacuum the circuit board to remove the graphite from the board. I had the same problem as you reported and when I did this the rover works and I have not had an issue since.

We have a Dolphin 3002 pro, it has taken to starting in the normal way but one side only starts slowly in one direction then stops. The other side works fine until the safety kicks in and the whole machine stops. I have taken off the side plate to check for debris, there is none. I found the bearings in one guide wheel had come apart so I replaced this from my stock. I then put everything back together to test but this has not cured the problem.

Dolphin design flaw
by: Justindm1

I had an issue with the impeller spinning for 10 seconds and then never turning again until the unit was power cycled.

I think I have worked out the issue that caused this,which is that the carbon powder that they use on the motor gets out of the motor and onto the circuit board after a year or so. Every time you take the rover out and invert it to clean the bag you are shaking the powder around inside the unit.

When I opened the watertight box inside the cleaner I noticed a lot of the carbon powder on the circuit board. As carbon is a conductor I wondered if it was shorting the sensor circuit and so blew hard on the circuit board. When I power cycled the cleaner this time it started working normally.

If you have issues with your pool cleaner and have tried everything else then open up the watertight box and use a vacuum cleaner to such up any carbon on the circuit board and see if this fixes the problem.

Dolphin suggestion when the cleaner is being assembled when the wires to the circuit board have been attached a quick spray of polyurethane on the circuit board would stop this issue.

Cable Plug into Power Supply Burnt Out
by: Anonymous

Hi, Thanks for your help. One of the male pins on the plug attached to the long cable has burnt out and broke off in the female plug on the power supply. It is the pin that connects to the white wire. I realize that only two of the pins are used and I've swapped the bad pins for the good pins. This doesn't seem possible on the male plug. Can you make any suggestions. Awesome product by the way. Hey, while we're at it, is there a way to make my old cable "tangle-proof" like the newer models?

one thing to note, if the unit stop running and the power supply is on, usually the motor is the culprit, if the power supply is off then the power supply is usually bad. if both shut off then there is a short somewhere in the system.

My dolphin has stopped working
by: Gordon

I have a Dolphin Dynamic. I don't remember precisely when I bought it but I would estimate it to be about 3-4 years old. In the past year it has started to operate poorly. Currently, when I turn it on at the caddy, it goes through its normal start up routine (pivoting then setting off in a straight line) and runs for about 30 seconds, making perhaps two passes. Then it slows down, the impeller stops turning, it keeps crawling along at a slower and slower speed and then stops. If I turn it off for a minute then turn it back on, it does the same thing -- runs for less than a minute then stops. I have cleaned the bag and washed it in the washing machine as recommended by Dolphin USA Customer Service. I have checked the tracks and interior for any blockages or foreign objects. Everything looks clean. What could the problem be? I only use this machine for a few months of the year, and not very often at that. I have a weekly pool service that vacuums and cleans my pool. The unit is stored in its caddy under a roofed pool cabana and we live in California where it is not subjected to freezing winter weather. Total hours of use on the system aren't that many. Surely your product should last longer than this? Can you please help me with this?
Thanks!
