Try these 4 things before taking your robotic cleaner to a service station.
These three common robotic cleaner troubleshooting steps can help you fix your problem and avoid having to go to a service station.
- Confirm the filter canister is empty and clean - Remove the filter canister and gently clean the canister mesh with mild soap and a soft brush.
