Dolphin Diagnostic Pumps Water, Won't Move

by Elliot
(USA)

My Dolphin Diagnostic stopped moving, though the water is still pumping out. I took it out of the pool and turned it on its back to perform the diagnostic test. When the switch was turned on, the treads moved sightly forward and back as if trying but would not go more than 1/4 inch in each direction. They move freely by hand. Any suggestions?

Found Problem
by: Elliot

Thanks for the tip. After getting the side cover off my Dolphin Diagnostic, I found that the hexagon adapter that connects the motor to the drive pulley was fractured where it connects to the motor. I ordered a new one for $20.50 from Inyopools.com. Thanks again.

Remove sideplate
by: Curt

You must remove the sideplate to check for obstructions between the tread and drive gear. If this does not fix, then it's off to a service center for a new motor.
