I have problems with my Dolphin Encore

What to do if your Dolphin Encore is not working?

If your Dolphin Encore pool cleaner is not working, start 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 that the power cable is securely connected into the power supply inlet. If these steps do not resolve the issue, turn the power supply off, wait 30 seconds, and then turn it back on.

Should the Dolphin Encore still not move or if it is moving in circles, ensure that the floating cable is securely connected into the power supply. If the cleaner is in the water but not moving, unplug the power supply, open the impeller cover, and check that nothing is trapped in the impeller or blocking the tracks or wheels. Additionally, make sure the power supply is positioned correctly so that the pool cleaner can 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 Encore pool cleaner. If the problem persists, consult the user manual or contact customer support for further assistance.
