The impeller on the Dolphin Advantage Pool Cleaner is the fan blade on the inside of the unit that creates the vacuum action to clear debris from your pool. Due to the wear and tear on a cleaner, heavy debris or possibly user error, the impeller on a Dolphin Advantage pool cleaner can become damaged; this is a simple and easy part to replace, simply follow these instructions:

Step by Step


Step 1

With the Dolphin Pool cleaner out of the pool sitting on its wheel tubes, turn the impeller tube counter-clockwise until the notches on the tube line up with the groove on the cleaner opening the extract

Step 2

The impeller is held in by one screw. Remove this screw being careful not to touch any jagged or sharp edges of the fan. Replacement Dolphin Advantage Impeller part #: 3295-152, Impeller Tube part #: 3295-150

Step 3

If the fan was broken and there are missing pieces from the fins removing these before placing the new part in the unit is key. When operation restarts those pieces could damage the new impeller.

Shoboat - The impeller is attached to a shaft that is driven by a set of gears off the the motor. I would not expect it to spin without some resistance.

I thought this would be an easy repair but my impeller did not come off easily. I finally got it off but, after installing the new one, the impeller does not seem to spin freely. How freely should the impeller shaft spin? It turns but there is resistance. Could hair get back behind the shaft?

impeller - The impeller should come off easily unless someone has glued it in. Try jamming in a block of wood to keep the blades from moving as you unscrew the center screw, then rock the impeller back and forth to lift it off the shaft. If that doesn't work and since the impeller is already broken, you come gently split the impeller hub with a small chisel.
