The DEEBOT keeps failing when trying to create the initial map.

●To create the initial map, the unit must move around starting from the charging dock and complete a full cleaning cycle by itself (meaning it must finish one complete cleaning and return on its own to the charging dock). A cleaning cycle is incomplete if partway through the cleaning, the cleaning is manually stopped, the unit is manually ordered to return for charging, or the unit is physically moved back to the charging dock.
●To create the initial map, the unit has to move around starting from the charging dock. Do not physically move the unit partway through its cycle.
●To create the initial map, the unit has to move around starting from the charging dock. In addition, we recommend following the unit around and removing any obstacles. This prevents snags that can hinder mapping.
●If the floor area of your home is too large, the unit will be unable to clean the entire household in one cycle. This means it will be unable to create a complete cleaning cycle. If this is the case:
✔Turn on the “Continuous Clean” function. After the unit is fully recharged, it will return to the interruption point and continue cleaning and mapping.
✔Close the doors to some rooms to reduce the floor area to be cleaned. This will allow the unit to accomplish a complete cleaning cycle and establish a partial map as a start. In subsequent cleanings, it will gradually update and expand this map.
