Yeah, just sat there and eventually shut itself off. Has done it once more in the 4 or 5 times I've run it.It should be reversing. I see no reason why it should get stuck up there. It certainly won’t clean a narrow ledge line that effectively but, once it gets up there and runs for a minute or so, it should reverse.
Can you watch it while it’s on the ledge? As @Arizonarob said, the S300i can do floor only mode.
So take it out of the pool... and store it out of the sun. Right, gotcha!A practical take away from this is the following - removing the robot from the pool when not in use will likely improve the longevity of the cord. I do typically take my robot out and, unlike a lot of robot owners, I have almost no issues with cord tangle or cord splitting open.
Parts without discount ran about $250 but the filter panels were $100. So if you don’t need them, then don’t get them. There are plenty of YouTube videos on how to fully disassemble these robots as well as do your own cord replacement. I decided against doing a new cord or a swivel cord because my original one is just fine even after 4 seasons. I’m not sufficiently impressed with the swivel cords to drop the cash on that upgrade so if I ever do need a cord, I’ll stick with the regular OEM replacement.Matt,
Thanks for the great write up..
Something I'll be doing in a year or so..
