Why Factory Reset a ECOVACS DEEBOT?

A factory reset is a feature that sends a ECOVACS DEEBOT back to its original factory settings. Put simply, it’s as if the DEEBOT is wiped clean of its memory and is brand new. In most cases, this is done to resolve unexpected robot issues, trouble with Wi-Fi connections to your home network, or other unexplained errors.

But before you factory reset your DEEBOT, are you sure you need to do it in the first place? There’s no need to factory reset a DEEBOT if you’re just experiencing mild issues that can easily be fixed. Simple problems, like damaged batteries, can easily be replaced. A factory reset is typically recommended for:

1. Transfer From the Previous Owner

When anyone buys a secondhand DEEBOT, or receives a DEEBOT from a friend or relative, the first step is to factory reset it. This wipes the DEEBOT’s memory clean and dissociates the robot and any saved data from the previous ECOVACS Home account. Only then the new owner can restart the DEEBOT’s learning process.

2. Last Resort to Troubleshooting

Sometimes, there’s just no going around an issue but to factory reset the DEEBOT. The most common problem that happens to a DEEBOT is a charging problem. While there are simple ways to fix the DEEBOT’s charging problem, the last resort is to simply reset the DEEBOT and restore it back to its default settings.

What Happens to the DEEBOT After a Factory Reset?

The action will remove the DEEBOT from the ECOVACS Home app. Every cleaning preferences, language selections, and time-zones will return to their default state. Any saved data on the ECOVACS account will also be removed, including smart home connections. 

If the DEEBOT has mapping capabilities, every map created and stored will be removed. However, if the factory reset is performed from the robot itself, the cloud data, app data, and account associations will remain in-tact. You can restart the DEEBOT’s learning process after the factory reset is complete.
