FAQs
The robot has returned to its charging dock for recharge during the scheduled time.
Will it resume to work after recharge or until the next scheduled cycle?The robot responds to scheduled cleaning once a day only. After recharge,it will start working automatically when the next schedule comes. If you need the robot to clean now, send a command with the remote control.
Will the robot keep cleaning until the scheduled cycle finishes?
Yes, the vacuum will keep cleaning unless you press PAUSE or its battery level is low and it returns to the charging base.
Can the robot clean water spots in the kitchen or bathroom?
The robot must not be used on the wet floors. Vacuuming liquids will damage the robot.
Do I need to maintain the robot?
You need to clean and maintain the robot regularly – clean dusty cliff sensors and remove hair and debris in the side brushes and wheels.Do not squeeze or press the high-performance filter. It must not be washed with water. Tab the filter to any remove dust.
Can I leave the robot on the charging dock if I'm not using it for some time?
Yes. After the robot is fully charged, it will enter trickle charging to compensate self-discharge in the battery and avoid overcharge. Do not allow children to charge the robot. Turn off the power switch if it will not be used for a long time.
Why can't the robot go back to the charging dock for recharge?
Make sure there is about 1 meter of unblocked space on both sides and about 2 meters in front of the charging dock. To avoid disturbing trickle charging, do not put the charging dock near high wattage appliances such as a television or refrigerator.
Why doesn’t the robot work at the scheduled cleaning time?
1. The power switch on the robot is turned off.
2. The battery is low.
3. The schedule was not saved in the robot properly. Read the user manual for instructions on how to schedule or visit our How-To Video Tutorials.
​​​​​​​4. After a schedule is set, keep the power switch on the robot on. The preset schedule will be canceled if the power switch is turned off or the robot’s battery runs completely out.
What if the robot moves backwards and circles around?
1. Clean the cliff sensors with a dry cloth or cotton swab.
2. Clean the side wheels.
​​​​​​​3. Check if the bumper is out all the way. Loosen the screws along the front bumper and tap to restore it to the original position. If necessary, remove the front bumper, clean and reinstall (make sure not to make screws too tight).
Why does the robot make more noise and clean less efficiently than before?
The robot needs to be maintained regularly. Follow these steps to remove debris from the robot:
1. Turn off the power switch. Remove and empty the dustbin.
2. Clean the primary and high-performance filters.
3. Clean the suction passage if it is stuck.
4. Remove and clean the side brushes.
Why does the robot fall down stairs occasionally even if it is equipped with an anti-fall system?
1. If the carpet extends beyond the steps, the robot will consider it as a carpeted floor and continue cleaning, causing it to fall down the stairs.
2. If the cliff sensors are dusty it can block the sensors view. Clean the cliff sensors.
​​​​​​​3. Some flooring is reflective. This will impact the function of the floor detectors. Add barriers to prevent falls.
The robot cleans well but doesn't work as long as before.
1. The battery will lose power if the robot is in standby for too long. Fully charge the robot before using it again.
2. If the robot is shutting down and giving an error message; this is not the battery. Count the number of beeps and look in your manual for the meaning of the error message or contact support.
3. Reactivate the battery if the robot has not been used for a long time: put the robot on the charging base and charge for 3 minutes, then pull off. Repeat this 3 times before charging it for 3-5 hours as usual.
​​​​​​​4. When the battery reaches its end of life, it will shorten the robot’s working time. Please replace the battery to maintain normal performance.

The side wheels may be jammed by debris. If cleaning the wheels doesn’t help, contact our customer service representatives. Please pay attention to the number of beeps in the error message when the robot shuts down.
The side wheels slip or are not rotating while the robot is cleaning.
1. There is liquid on the floor. The slip is caused by reduced friction between the side wheels and the floor.
2. The mop cloth holder has loosened during cleaning and causes too much friction with the floor. Remove the mop cloth holder.
The robot has missed or repeated cleaning some areas.
1. The robot will automatically clean the areas that it has missed. Do not move it or block its cleaning route.
2. Because every home setting is different, spatial analysis discrepancy may happen. If the robot hasn’t covered some areas, put it in another spot manually and restart the cleaning cycle.
​​​​​​​3. Before using the robot, clear excessive objects on the floor that may block its cleaning path (e.g. cables, slippers, upright fan). The robot cannot clean narrow spaces which are smaller than itself. Rearrange the furniture and settings for better cleaning results.
The side brushes are not working or rotating very slowly.
