How to Troubleshoot Common Problems with Your DEEBOT Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

If you are a newcomer to the realm of automated cleaning gadgets, you might have questions about how to troubleshoot a robot vacuum. Robot vacuums are some of the top-rated vacuum cleaners, but since they are self-governing, they are prone to various maintenance and repair problems. 

Troubleshooting issues as soon as they arise is important for a number of reasons, especially when it comes to extending the life of your robotic vacuum cleaner. By addressing problems quickly, you can prevent them from becoming worse and potentially causing more damage to your device. This can save you time and money in the long run, as well as help you avoid the frustration and inconvenience of dealing with a malfunctioning device.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning and maintaining your DEEBOT robotic vacuum cleaner is essential to ensure optimal performance and extend its lifespan. Here are some detailed instructions on how to properly clean and maintain your DEEBOT robotic vacuum cleaner.

Regularly emptying the dustbin is an essential step to ensure the robotic vacuum cleaner operates at its best. But the advanced DEEBOT has a feature where it will empty its dustbin on its own after cleaning. For example, DEEBOT T10 PLUS includes a dust bag that is hypoallergenic and will seal automatically, guaranteeing that no dust particles are released into the air. By using the 3.2L disposable dust bag, user can have a completely hands-free experience for up to 60 days without the need to empty the dustbin by themselves. ECOVACS laboratory comes out the provided data based on its research and considers how often users typically dispose of traditional dustbins. The actual performance may vary depending on factors such as cleaning frequency and area.

Failure to clean and maintain the DEEBOT robotic vacuum cleaner regularly can result in reduced performance, damage to the vacuum, and a shorter lifespan. If the dustbin is not emptied regularly, it can cause blockages and reduce suction power. If the brushes and filters are not cleaned regularly, they can become clogged with dirt and debris, causing the vacuum to malfunction.

Connectivity Problems

There are several potential connectivity issues that may arise with the DEEBOT robotic vacuum cleaner, including difficulty connecting to Wi-Fi, other devices, or problems with the app or software. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to troubleshoot these issues.
  • It is important to verify that your home Wi-Fi network is either a 2.4G or 2.4/5G mixed network for proper connectivity.
  • It is recommended to charge the robot completely before configuring the network. The charging dock can be used for this purpose while configuring the network.
  • The blinking Wi-Fi indicator light located under the robot cover on the upper right of the power switch indicates that the robot is ready for Wi-Fi configuration.
  • Ensure that the robot's power switch is turned on and the startup process is complete (which takes around 20 seconds) before starting the configuration.
  • To ensure proper network setup, press the network setup button (located on the right side of the power switch and appears as a small dot) before or during the network setup process. A voice prompt will confirm the button press.

Mechanical Issues

When the robotic vacuum cleaner occurs problems related to the brushes or wheels, or issues with the motor or battery, it’s proper to deal with them immediately through the right approach.

If the DEEBOT gets stuck or does not move, you should check for any obstructions in the path of the DEEBOT, such as cords or furniture. Ensure that the wheels and brushes are clean and free of debris. Check if the its sensors are working properly and clean them if necessary. If the issue persists, try resetting the DEEBOT by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds until it turns off and then turns back on.

If the DEEBOT is not charging, first of all, you should ensure that the charging dock is plugged in and the power outlet is working properly. Check if the charging pins on the DEEBOT and the charging dock are clean and free of debris. Make sure that the robot vacuum cleaner is correctly positioned on the charging dock. If the issue persists, try resetting the DEEBOT by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds until it turns off and then turns back on. But if the problem still can’t be solved, it may be necessary to replace the battery or charging dock.
