Hello super helpful forum members.

Just opened things up and started the Cleaner and the booster pump doesn't start up at all. It was working back in the fall. Reset the breaker and no leaks but wanted to check with you all first for any suggestions. I will be looking up the robot models.

Check that the pump has voltage at its connections.

Check the start capacitor in the hump.

Get a robot cleaner.

Also, with the power off, try to turn the motor shaft by hand with pliers between the motor and plastic wet-end, or from the back of the motor under the cap with a screwdriver or allen wrench. The bearings might be sticking.
