Aquabot stops intermittently. Checked PS and it had 38vac. Replaced corroded cable plug with computer cord end. Same results.internal wiring looked good so i opened suspect drive motor. Interesting to see no oil in it but silicone heat sink grease betwern plate and motor. Checked incoming cable voltage and only found 7 to 10 vac at motor circuit board. Removed cable shrink wrap and tested with same results. Cut cable back till I got good voltage reading and buttspliced snd shrinkwrapped my connection reassembled unit and put the motor plate back on. Unit works like it should now. *** I dont know why the cable strain relief had silicon at the gland nut. Water gets in there reguardless. Makes no sense for this extra sealing effort.
