I have problems with my Dolphin Advantage Pro

What to do if your Dolphin Advantage Pro is not working?

If your Dolphin Advantage Pro pool cleaner is not working, begin by checking that there is voltage in the power socket in the wall. Confirm that the power supply is plugged in and turned ON, and ensure that the black power cable is securely connected into the power supply inlet. If these steps are all correct and the cleaner still does not operate, turn the power supply OFF, wait 30 seconds, and then turn it back ON.

Should the Dolphin Advantage Pro still not move or if there is a red light on the power supply, check that the blue floating cable is properly connected into the power supply. If the pool cleaner is in the water but not moving, unplug the power supply and open the impeller cover to remove any debris that may be trapped in the impeller or blocking the tracks or wheels. Additionally, make sure the power supply is correctly positioned to allow the pool cleaner to freely reach all areas of the pool and that there is enough slack in the floating cable.

Following these troubleshooting steps should help resolve most issues with the Dolphin Advantage Pro pool cleaner. If the problem persists, consult the user manual or contact customer support for further assistance.
