When I run the self test on the robot, ( lay on its back outside of the pool it should run 10 seconds forward and then 10 seconds backwards and then shutdown) it will run forward for a few seconds then stop and then continue to run forward again and not stop. In the pool it runs around for about 10 minutes and quits. The impeller and tracks are all clean and free.
Any suggestions? Bad motor maybe?

Put it in the pool this morning and it acted somewhat normal. Ran for about 15 minutes then decided to stop. Power source staying on but robot light out.
Any ideas or recommendation to troubleshoot.

Took the motor apart and really surprised at how simply this thing is. A circuit board, two motors and an actuator. I'm thinking the circuit board is going bad. The tread motor will sometimes run and other times it won't. Voltage going to this motor is also a little erratic. Continuity across the motor provides a 10 so should be good there too.
A few videos of my testing.

Took it back apart and found this motors wiring was loose on the circuit board plug. Seems to test correctly now. Re-assemblying now for the true test.
