Hayward AquaVac 500 stops after a few minutes

My Hayward AquaVac 500 robotic cleaner (new in August 2017) will only operate for a few minutes before stopping completely. Everything looks normal when I plug it in. I select wall or wall+floor mode, the control panel lights go solid, the impeller spins up, and the robot will drive around for a few minutes before completely stopping. At that point, the control panel lights are still solid (as if the robot is still completing its cycle.

I've taken both sides off and nothing appears to be amiss. Nothing looks to be obstructed or broken, aside from the drive track belt, which has a crack (the belt is still intact though). The drive pin looks to be intact as well (with some superficial rust).

Any thoughts on what the issue could be?
