Electrical Short NEW
by: Joyce O

I have a 2017 model Millenium SE that keeps blowing fuses. The power supply works fine if it is not connected to the robot but as soon as I connect it to the submerged robot and turn on the power, the fuse blows. If it's an electrical short, where you you recommend I check for the problem? Any other suggestions you have would be appreciated.

T-4 Turbo Not Working
by: Anonymous

Have the aquabot t4 turbo, when I turn the power supply to start the cleaner I set it to 3 hours and when I click it to start the power supply clicks & goes back to -- and doesn't start but when I try it without the aquabot plugged in it seems to operate correctly without shorting out. The power light seems to be orange and I'm not sure if that's the case normally..

Turbo classic browning fuses
by: Eric W

I have a turbo classic that keeps blowing fuses when the robot is attached to the power supply box. After reviewing this site, I started looking into the problem. I noticed the connection between the cord and the motor cord looks like some water has gotten into it. There is an off white grease in the connector which I am assuming is the electrical putty. Where can I get electrical putty or what ever this grease substance is to replace it after I dry up the connection good?

Fuse blowing
by: Anonymous

The fuse was blowing on my aquabot. I took the plug end apart and found the connection wires had started to touch each other some how. I separated them and slipped a piece of electrical tape between them and put back together. Has worked fine since.

My Fury runs for two hours and then trips the GFI
by: Anonymous

There is no on/off light to show that the machine is on. I have to press the on/off switch several times while resetting the GFI for it to work. What is wrong?

Blows fuse, repair cable
by: k

Fuse blows on my Aquabot Classic. Doesn't blow when disconnected from the robot, so I'll assume it's either the cord or corrosion at the terminals. A piece of insulation (about the size of a packing noodle?) broke off and was stuck inside the impeller. I removed it. Not sure what that was.

At the point were the cord attaches to the robot, it transitions from a fat cord to a narrower one that enters the body. It seems like that was plug, but I can't get it apart.

How do I know where to separate the cord to know that I cut out the damaged part?

other issues
by: ADMIN

Other problems...a short in the reset, a short in the on/off switch, a short in the outlet to the robot.
Disconnect each and reattach one at a time. Careful...it's 120 volts ac in the box

Aquabot Classic
by: John Rowan

I put another fuse into the power supply and DID NOT connect the robot portion. It blew the fuse as soon as I turned on the power supply and hit the reset button. I don't see any corrosion on any of the connections. I don't know what the next step would be diagnosing this problem.

by: ADMIN

A blown fuse on the classic is almost always due to a broken wire at the handle or corroded contacts where the wires connect on the motor

Aquabot Classic
by: John Rowan

My daughter's Classic had a blown fuse. Replaced it and it blew as soon as I turned it on. Turned robot upside down and tried moving tracks, was able to move them but needed a lot of force and belts to motor started to jump coggs. Took the tracks off, put another fuse in, turned on transformer and it blew immediately. The rollers have slight play and move freely. The drive motor seems to be where the resistance is coming from. I would think the motor would turn freely but it doesn't. I didn't disconnect the motor from drive belts. I did take the top water ejection cover off to see if that propeller turned freely, it turns but feels like there's too much resistance.

Fuse location in power supply
by: Anonymous

Can someone tell me where the fuse is located in a aquabot rapids 2000?

Several items to check
by: ADMIN

If the power supply is burning fuses with the robot cable detached, there may be a short in the timer(inside the box), the outlet or the on/off switch.

Aquabot Xtreme blowing fuses
by: Anonymous

My aquabot Xtreme fuse blew in its fusebox I went to the hardware store to get a fuse for it they gave me a 5 amp rather than a 2. 5 amp it ran for a bit but was making a weird noise then it blew the fuse.. I smell an electrical smell like wires melting so I unplugged it I went to the hardware store and got the correct size and now it is still blowing fuses. I disconnected the cable and tried plugging it in and seeing if it was the cable it is not it is so blowing what can be the problem is this something that I could repair myself

broken cable
by: ADMIN

I will guarantee to you the broken wire is at the point where it clamps to the handle.

blowing fuses
by: Anonymous

I have an Aquabot classic. When I turn it on, it works for a bit, then the fuse blows. I think it must be the cable, because if I unplug the cable, and turn it on, the fuse doesn't blow.

YEsterday I pulled the cable completely out of the water, I put the aquabot into the water and I held it and then I had my wife turn it on. Worked great. Then I started feeding the cable into the water. Perhaps 10 feet of cable was in the water, then the fuse blew.

So it doesn't sound like the short is near the Aquabot?

I guess I need to replace the cable.

Dead Short
by: ADMIN

You have a broken wire or corroded terminal at the end of the cable. Fix it yourself for pennies or take it to the shop where you will be sold a new cable for about$200

Blown fuse commonly caused by a short in the cable...
by: ADMIN

and many shorts in the cable are caused by abuse. If the cable is not coiled after every use then that is abuse.

Blown fuse
by: Anonymous

I used my bot maybe 10 times, now it continues to blow fuses, this is ridiculous. Of coarse, it is 12 and 1/2 month old and out of warranty.

Get a new servicer
by: Anonymous

The first problem is the servicing company. No way a healthy robot needs the fuse pulled to start.

aquabot xtreme shuts off after 2 minutes
by: Anonymous

I have an aquabot xtreme that is exactly 1 year old. It shuts off after running in the pool for 2 minutes. I take the fuse out, put it back in, it runs again for about 2 minutes then shuts off again! I brought it to be serviced and they found nothing wrong with it. What could be the problem?

Switch? What model?
by: Anonymous

Could be the switch. In the future, please indicate what model robot you are referring to.

Fuse blowing
by: Anonymous

Just found this post related to blowing fuses. I followed the directions here and found that the wire must have been shorting out in the wire right where it coonected to the robot. I did the repair and my Aquabot is now back in service. Thanks for the help....

short
by: curt

Most often the problem is broken wires in the floating cable at the handle. Often times the broken ends will touch inside the insulation. Cut the cable several inches from the handle, crimp on new connectors. power up the cable and see if the fuse burns. then power up the pump and motor separately. if either pump or motor burn the fuse then the bad component must be replaced.
