It moves. I put in new cartrdiges. I've checked the impeller. The brushes move. It just doesn't pick anything up.

Loose bag bad
by: ADMIN

If the bag is loose then the pump will pull it off the bottom plate causing debris to escape.

Bag on DOphin deluxe 4
by: DD

Is it really that important that the bag fits in there perfect? I cut the band off it because it broke. What was that band for? How would it affect leaves sneaking into the motor area and no leaves going in the bag. It's climbing the walls and the impeller is blowing trash leaves and small sticks out the top. Crazy!!!

Must have suction
by: ADMIN

You are correct that climbing is only possible with suction and where there is suction there is intake.
You may have a poorly fitting bag or even a hole in the bag. Otherwise the robot appears to be working normally.

Dophin Vacuum Issue
by: Anonymous

Just curious, would the unit climb the walls if the pump wasn't working properly. I would not think there would be enough suction to climb the walls.
Just a thought.

If your pump is not spinning the impeller then the pump is bad or the connection is bad. Unfortunately, Maytronics does not sell the motors to repair your machine.
