One of the treads has come off my 4-5 year old Dolphin twice in the last few weeks. Unsure whether it is the same one.

I am able to wrestle it back on fairly easily, but it is a minor nuisance that I somehow do not expect to get better. Is it because the rubber has lost resiliency, stretched, or what?

 Anyone got an ideal on this?

They do stretch out over time and need to be replaced. That sounds like what is happening with your tracks. The replacement track for the Dolphin Deluxe 4 is part number 9985007.

 Thank you. There is a new twist to this in that having replaced the treads twice more, the robot now doesn't move. It just sits there pumping water through.

Does anyone have any guidance on the probable cause?

 Also does anyone know of a forum for Dolphin related matters, especially repair? Maytronics does not want to know anything
