    Need help troubleshooting Polaris P93 Robot Cleaner

    My guess is that water has entered the motor block and is causing intermittent problems. You could disassemble the motor block, see if there is a leak, dry it out, fix the leaking problem and see if it works again. These usually leak when the main seal fails or when one of the seals around the...

    Polaris P965iQ Error 10

    It is usually because the motor block unit in the robot has become flooded with water and shorted out the internal controller/driver board. The power/controller unit does two things, it provides power to the robot via two wires, and communicates to the robots controller/driver board over a...

    Polaris 9550 Sport Troubleshooting Help

    Very sorry I missed your posting. If you are still listening, the large nut on the propeller driven motor assembly just comes off with a big enough crescent wrench. You might need a drop of penetrating oil, but mine came off after a bit of persuasion. The wheel motors just have one locking nut...

    poloris 9300xi motors

    I found the manufacturer for the whole motor/gear assembly, but they refuse to sell small quantities. I think it's because they have an agreement with Polaris not to sell to the public. I believe I've found a possible source for replacement motors, just have not had time to check them out. The...

    Issue with Polaris 9560

    Hey Poolgate, the cable connector does disassemble pretty easily. When you disassemble it, you'll see where the wires connect to the pins. There is a very small metric allen metric set screw that you use to connect the bare wire to the pin. Chances are the set screw is loose in the connector...

    Where can I find a new power supply for Aquabot Fury

    Sorry RoxxW, I don't. I'm just good at Polaris due to having to learn the hard way ;)

    Where can I find a new power supply for Aquabot Fury

    Sorry Vinnie, don't know why my message got cut off. I have repaired a bunch of Polaris power supplies with great success. If you'd like me to take a shot at yours, shoot me a PM. Edit by Jim R.

    Polaris P9550 review...

    Hey IrviPool, Any chance you will get a schematic for the motor block controller board? I have a couple of flooded boards that I'd like to repair, but even though I have a few parts documented, I still need to troubleshoot. I'm able to repair the surface mount components. Specifically, I need...

    Polaris 9550 Sport Troubleshooting Help

    A couple of suggestions, not sure any will really address the issue: 1. For the upside down issue, I've seen a couple of units where even though you clean out the basket, there remains a film of stuff blocking the mesh. I've been able to solve those just by gently scrubbing the mesh with a...

    Polaris P9550 review...

    Only advice is that if possible, remove from your pool when not using. The Polaris motor drive assemblies can leak over time (the motor seals, the drive seal). Being under water pressure and under chemical exposure tends to hasten those problems. Gets expensive when the drive assembly fails as...

    Polaris 9550 does not work when submerged in water. Works on leslies diagnostics

    Not if water has invaded the motor block and shorted the control board :)

    Polaris 9550 does not work when submerged in water. Works on leslies diagnostics

    Hey LLP, In my experience, my local Leslie's techs have absolutely no idea on how to fix these robots. Even though my local shop has the diagnostic tools, they totally gave me the wrong repair info, and quoted that I needed a new controller, cable and motor block and that the repair cost was...

    Picking up used Polaris 9550

    I have a 9450 and really like it. I did have a faulty motor block, and the fine folk at Polaris were kind enough to send me a replacement unit after my local pool supply repair place (rhymes with Peslies) was totally incompetent to repair it (they insisted that it was the controller, motor block...

    Issue with Polaris Sport 9550

    Just a quick suggestion to check out that the leaf basket is empty. I found that if the basket gets too full I sometimes get problems with the device flipping upside down. Also remove the basket and insure that nothing is blocking the impeller or drive wheels. The motor block assembly is...

    Polaris 280 and booster pump about to fail. Time for a robot?

    One of the deciding factors for me is the price of electricity. Here in CA, the cost of electricity is so high that running the booster pump for even a couple of hours per day is very high. I had a 280 that ran for at least 10 years with 0 problems. I replaced the pump about 8 years ago, and...

    Pentair Intelliflo VF vs. Intelliflo VS 3050

    I've got this exact configuration. I have two timers, one for the Intelliflo, one for the booster pump sweep. I've set the timer for the one to the Intelliflo to be on all the time, and just use the timer contained in the Intelliflo. I've set the one for the booster pump to be on for a period...

    Intelliflo SV+SVRS, can I get rid of my booster pump?

    Thanks to tmoss and Jason for all the advice, I think I'm ready to throw in the towel on the experiment. Close, but no cigar. Tmoss- great idea about cracking open the relief valve at the wall. This was exactly what was necessary to get the arrangement to work at all. Now, the Intelliflo does...

    Intelliflo SV+SVRS, can I get rid of my booster pump?

    Thanks a million tmoss, great ideas. I will give both a try tomorrow and will inform how it turned out. Your ideas have given me hope. My guess is that I can save an extra $75 per month on my power bill if this works.

    Intelliflo SV+SVRS, can I get rid of my booster pump?

    Wondering if anyone here can assist? I recently installed a Pentair Inteillflo SV+SVRS filter and am thrilled with the energy savings over my previous Whipserflo. My next project is trying to eliminate the need to use my Haward 5060 booster pump to power my Polaris 280 pressure side pool...

    Advice for a newbee- Just installed Intelliflo VS+SVRS

    My next project is working on some automation to switch the Intelliflo to power my Polaris 280 and get rid of the existing 3/4HP pump. The booster pump draws 9A at 240V (~2100W), so if I can power it just using the Intelliflow, maybe at 2400 RPM, I'm hoping to drop the load to about 800W. This...

    Advice for a newbee- Just installed Intelliflo VS+SVRS

    Hi guys, Just joined, great forum and I've benefitted a lot already from the advice I've read. Wondering as to what the optimal RPM settings I should be running on my Intelliflo. I got a great deal on one from a maintenance outfit that was going out of business and installed myself. It...
