Won't reverse

Tiger Shark operates normally in one direction, but won't reverse. Tried turning off power and allowing unit to reset, but no luck.


Any help would be appreciated,

Moby not reversing
by: Bert Duisters

I have a simular problem.
Reverse of the poolcleaner is detected when the motor uses more current when it stops against one of the pool walls.

In my moby I found a resitor wich is defect now I have to find out the value of it.
First ring is brown the second black but then the third ring looks silver. This should give a value of 0.1 ohm.

I don't think this is the correct value but I will find out by testing with values from 0.1 to 10 Ohm.
Maybe if someone reads this and has found the correct value. please reply.
