Robot vacuum cleaner problems

01/22/2022 9:03 AM

I have this Neato XV Signature vacuum (robot).

Since I replaced the rechargeable batteries in it, it started giving me various error reports, such as open bin and slide switch down to on. (It has a switch to switch ON or OFF inside the bin compartment. This when switch is already ON of course.

Another error report is this: Press OKAY to restart battery issue 0002.

I would be very grateful if someone can help me solve this.

This flaky robot needs a stern lecture on Asimov's Laws.

Sounds like a battery connection need to be cleaned or repaired...

When pulling up on the pin,you should feel a "click" as it locks into position.

There is a built in barb on the bottom of the pin that expands when fully inserted.

This barb can be flattened and overcome by misalignment of the pins and too much force when connecting.

Sometimes they get compressed and will not lock in,so a simple fix of the pin is to remove it from the socket and pry the barb out with a needle or scalpel.Careful if you pull up on the pin, not to apply too much pressure to prevent crushing the pin.

The hot glue is not necessary if you do this,but it is a good backstop in case the pin is forced out by a misalignment of the pins when inserting the battery connector.

There is an option in the menu, when you recharge the new battery, one needs to accept this in the menu and it should reset the machine and clear error codes. See the end of the video. near

No problem: the manufacturer's telephone number must be in the documentation.

I have had a Roomba for over 10 years,and it does always seem to hide under something when it is time to recharge or empty the bin.

I wish they would make one that would come to me when I whistle.

That particular model was made redundant many years ago. The WIFE was replaced with the updated Roomba J7 Plus.

All of the newer models have WiFi connection.I do not want this,so I will repair my old one as long as possible.If I am forced to buy a new one due to obsolescence,I will disable the Wi-Fi port,or fake it out with a loop-back program.
