Robot not behaving normally, please help
So I purchased my robot last week and for the past 3 days have been trying to get it to work correctly.
First I had it in my front office with aspirations that it would start cleaning there, move into the hallway from there and clean the dining room, living room, and kitchen. Unfortunately this seems like a pipe dream now. After multiple trials, the robot only made it to the hallway, said it was done cleaning and returned home. Never was able to get any further.
Frustrated I moved it into the living room, a big open area. It had trouble here as well, cleaning 5-10 square feet then returning home. Tried it again when I got home just now and it cleaned only 66 square feet in 36 minutes on eco mode. Once again thought the job was done and returned home. I have the sporadic maps if anyone is interested.
While it was cleaning the 66 square feet it would only drive forward about one foot, stop, look around and backtrack to vacuum the same areas over and over. I can’t for the life of me figure out why it just simply can not follow a wall and work it’s way inwards like the instructions claim. It seems very confused, sometimes does multiple 360’s before it sets off again. There seems to be no method to the cleaning, I don’t believe it has the 2nd pass through technology like the roomba so I think it’s just confused.
I bought this thinking that this was the most sophisticated navigation but 66 square feet in over half an hour is ridiculous. Yesterday before I moved it to the living room it had a E92 error, reset it and it at least undocked. I would like to say it may just have a hard time learning my home but I’ve read it has no memory function. If it is this sporadic every time, my small home will never get cleaned.
Is this not not designed for carpet? This is the only thing I can think of, the bumper maybe getting stuck and the robot thinking it’s done and return home. Please help Electrolux, I would love to keep my Pure i9 but I’m having so much trouble. I have reset it, I do not have it in direct sunlight, the lenses are not dirty because it’s only 3 days old. The robot also emits sort of a loud buzzing when the vacuum is off and returning home. I don’t know if I remember that buzzing the first times I used it. If anyone has any recommendations I’m all eat. Thank you everyone for your time.
