help needed - goes to same path over and over in deep end

by Jim
(Grapevine, Tx)

My dolphin always worked great but then last time i put it in my relatively large pool, once it gets to the deep end it just goes back and forth over and over again on the same track path for hours and never changes. Any ideas?

ADMIN REPLY: Be sure the cable is not kinked and severely twisted. The robots can't fight an abused ill-maintained cable.
Run without the bag and see if the robot runs normal. A dirty clogged bag will damper the suction needed to exit the deep area.

The answer is out there...but you have to look.

The handle must be diagonally situated across the body. If you are unsure what diagonal means then think of a box divided into triangles, it is the diagonal line that makes 2 triangles in a box. This is the problem in most cases. The next item would be the belts.

Be sure the handle is diagonal to the top of the robot.

Igf the handle is not diagonal (at an angle) to the robot then the robot will go back and forth in the same place.

Bag is clean. Cord is not kinked. Has ran well for quite some time. Now, it just goes from one wall to the other on the same path. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Same problem - help

We also have a dolphin model LD deluxe-3 and the dolphin does the same pattern in the middle of the pool and never gets to the sides. Ideas?

Same issue

I have the same issue. Bag is clean, cord is not kinked. The Dolphin will go back and forth, from one wall to the other wall. The cleaner works fine, but will stay on that same pattern until I pull it in a different direction. I have tried adjusting the handle positions, but it still spends 90% of the cleaning cycle just going back and forth.
