Frequently Asked Questions

Click a frequently asked question below to see the answer.

The cleaner is not moving at all.

1. Check that the power supply’s electrical plug is functioning correctly. Try another electrical product to verify.

2. Check that you have started a Perfect or Turbo cleaning cycle.

The cleaner is not properly adhering to the bottom of the pool.

Repeat the instructions noted in "Submerging the Cleaner" section of the manual (TL-3200) to release trapped air.

The cleaner seems to be performing less efficiently.

1. Ensure the surface of the brushes have not become smooth. We recommend that the brushes are changed every two (2) years, or sooner if they are worn.

2. Ensure the filter element is not full or clogged. If it is, simply clean it.

3. Ensure the floating cable is not excessively coiled or twisted.

The cleaner will not climb the walls.

1. Ensure the filter element is not full or clogged up. If it is, simply clean it.

2. Although the water seems clear, your pool may contain microscopic algae (not visible to the naked eye), which are making the sides slippery and are preventing the cleaner from climbing them. In this case, super chlorinate the pool and adjust the pH level. Do not leave the cleaner in the pool during super chlorination.
