Why is my ILIFE robot vacuum beeping?

When an ILIFE robot vacuum is in trouble, it will remind you by beeping.

In most cases, an ILIFE robot vacuum is beeping because of an issue with the wheels, brushes, or sensors. It can also mean that the robot is stuck. Removing hair and debris from its wheels, brushes, or sensors, or moving it to a new location will often solve the issue.

Here’s how to troubleshoot an ILIFE robot vacuum that is beeping:

  • 1 beep - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is beeping one time, there is an issue with either the side wheels or the side brushes, or both. To solve the issue, remove any hair and debris from the side wheels and side brushes. Clean them thoroughly and make sure they can rotate smoothly.
  • 2 beeps - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is beeping two times, it means there is a failure with either the cliff sensor or bumper sensor, or both. To solve the issue, clean the cliff sensor with a clean microfiber cloth and make sure the bumper can rotate freely.
  • 3 beeps - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is beeping three times, it means that the robot is stuck. To solve the issue, move the robot to a new location and restart it.
  • 4 beeps - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is beeping four times, it means there is a failure with the main rotating brush. To solve the issue, remove the bristle brush from the robot carefully and clean both the bristle ends and the roller, making sure to remove all the hair and debris.

If an ILIFE robot vacuum is beeping while charging, it means that the power switch on the robot is not switched ON. When charging, make sure the ILIFE robot vacuum is kept in an "ON" status, otherwise it will make a constant beeping sound while charging.

Why is my ILIFE robot vacuum not working properly?

When an ILIFE robot vacuum is malfunctioning, it will behave erratically. Here’s how to troubleshoot an ILIFE robot vacuum that is not working properly:

  1. Make short moves and circles around a small area - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is making short moves and circles around a small area, it means hair or debris are clogging the front wheel. To solve the issue, pull out the front wheel and remove hair and debris in the cavity and axle. Reinstall the front wheel and be sure to clean it twice a week.
  2. Moves backward and spins - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is moving backward and spinning, it means the bumper cannot rotate smoothly. To solve the issue, reinstall the bumper and remove all hair and debris. After reinstalling, make sure the bumper can move back and forth smoothly.
  3. Circles continuously - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is circling continuously, it means the side wheels are stuck. To solve the issue, clean hair and debris on the wheels. Push them in and out to make sure they can rotate freely. You can read more about circling robot vacuums right here.
  4. Noise level increased (becoming louder) - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is becoming louder and its noise level has increased, it means the bristle brush and roller are jammed by hair. To solve the issue, remove the main brush. Clean the bristle brush and roller, then reinstall them properly.
  5. Stops and beeps suddenly - If an ILIFE robot vacuum stops and beeps suddenly, it means the bristle brush and roller are jammed by hair. To solve the issue, remove the main brush. Clean the bristle brush and roller, then reinstall them properly.
  6. Picks up less debris and spits out debris - If an ILIFE robot vacuum is picking up less debris and spits out debris, it means the dustbin is full and the filter is dirty. To solve the issue, take out the dustbin and clean it. Also, remove the filter and clean it thoroughly. Be sure to replace the filter once every three months.
  7. Side wheels do not work properly - If the side wheels of an ILIFE robot vacuum are not working properly, it means that the side wheels are jammed by hair. To solve the issue, clean hair and debris on the side wheels. Push them in and out to make sure they can rotate freely.
  8. Side brushes do not rotate freely - If the side brushes of an ILIFE robot vacuum are not rotating freely, it means that the side brushes are stuck. To solve the issue, remove hair and dust from the side brushes. Make sure they can rotate freely.
  9. Working time shortened - If the working time of an ILIFE robot vacuum has shortened, it means the charging time is too short or the robot is having battery problems. To solve the issue, make sure the robot is fully charged by charging it for at least 5 hours. If the battery is damaged, replace the battery.
