Robot stop climbing walls Premier from 2014

by Srdan

Premier from 2014 does not climb walls, unless pushed manually. Tried everything imaginable, no success (cleaned pool walls, replaced climbing rings and brushes, cleaned filter and impeller, reset). It still works in the floor, not sure what can be done. This is an expensive machine, cannot imagine that I need to put it in garbage?

Would new power box be helpful? I would hate to waste additional $200 just to try it.
Any idea would be very helpful, thank you in advance!

Robot stop climbing walls Premier from 2014

Hi, I once had rock wedged between the wall of the impellar and the impellar. This prevented the impellar from spinning which creates the vacuum to suck up debris and assist in climbing the walls. Worse case is the impeller/ pump has failed.
Good luck

how it climbs
by: ADMIN

The robot needs adequate suction to climb. The first thing I would do is run without the bag installed. If the robot climbs the walls then get a new bag.
2nd, check for debris lodged in and around the top of the pump or hair and fibers wrapped around the pump impeller impeding both pump action and flow of water.
