Q1 – Did you observe this error more than once lately?
If Yes – Proceed to Q2.
If No – Press the ‘OK’ button for 3 seconds and set the time and date. Put the robot at the Base Station. The robot will now be charged a long charging session up to 16 hours.
Q2 – Check the mowing duration by pressing the settings button for 3 seconds, enter P106. The first number to the left shows the number of the operation in the list, and the rest of the numbers is a counter of that operation in minutes. Review of the operations list can be done via the Left and Right keys.
|P106 Battery Run Time / Capacity||0 068|
|The last 10 battery run times are given in minutes. Pressing the Settings button at a specific operation will show the Battery Capacity of that operation in mA. (E.g. 5700 = 5.7 Ampere)|
Normal mowing duration (in a single operation seen in the table below):
|Average Mowing Time||35-45 min||50-60 min||50-60 min|
Is the mowing duration, indeed, shorter than expected?
If Yes – Proceed to Q3.
If No – Everything seems to be OK. Call the Robomow Hotline for further analysis.
Q3 – Is the mowing height set too low, and is the grass height high?
If Yes – Increase the mow height and let the robot complete full mowing cycles (2-3 days) to understand if the problem is resolved or still exists.
If No – Proceed to Q4.
Q4 – Turn the System Switch to off, lift the robot from its front area and check the following:
- Debris is not stuck in the mowing deck.
- Blades are not bent.
- Too many mulches are built up between the mowing deck and blades.
- Rotate blades (using a long stick or gloves).
Was any of the above observed on the mowing deck?
If Yes – Make sure the mowing deck is clean and the blades are in good condition.
If No – Proceed to Q5.
Q5 – Turn the System Switch to ON, Enter Power Box to Pause mode (by pressing the On/Off button on the Power Box for 3 seconds), place the robot on the Base Station, and let it charge 12-16 hours. Does the full battery icon turn constant green?
If Yes – The robot needed a long charging session, which happens once in a while. Let the robot continue working and contact the Robomow Hotline if the problem persists.
If No – Battery Pack should be replaced.
