Eufy RoboVac Keeps Stopping And Beeping – Fixed

how fix eufy robovac

The Eufy RoboVac often beeps and stops operating when a fault prevents it from cleaning.

Any faulty or dirty components might cause this, but if you carefully follow each method you can easily solve the issue.

Let’s jump right in!

Solution #1 Charge RoboVac!

Because of a Low Battery the Eufy RoboVac frequently stops working. The fact that it cannot clean further with a low battery is clear.

For optimum performance, you need Full Charging

Aside from charging, it’s important that the charging base and its pins are kept clean so that the robot can communicate with the base properly and charge itself.

Let’s learn more!

charge your robovac

Here is how you can effectively charge your Eufy RoboVac:

  1. Unplug the Charging Base from the outlet.
  2. Take a clean Microfiber Cloth and clean the Sensors and Pins.
  3. Place the robot in front of the base within 6 feet of range.
  4. Plug in the Charging Station to the outlet.
  5. Press the Return-To-Home button on the Eufy RoboVac.
  6. When the orange lights flash the robot is charging.
  7. Now charge it until it shows a Solid Blue Light.

With a full battery, send your robot on a mission and observe its performance to determine whether the stopping and beeping problem persists.

In case it does, proceed further!

Solution #2 Replace RoboVac Battery

It’s important to determine whether the Eufy RoboVac battery is dead before continuing any further.

What that means is that over time the battery starts to store less and less electricity to the point where the battery dies a few minutes after the robot has been fully charged.

Of course, the Eufy RoboVac stops and beeps when the battery is weak…

  • In Eufy’s recommendation, the RoboVac batteries should be changed every year!

In case you haven’t replaced the batteries in the last 12 months scroll to the bottom of the guide to find a compatible replacement.

In case it’s been just a few months and the batteries are not the primary suspect, continue cleaning and maintaining your RoboVac in the next solutions!

Tip: The battery is under the compartment, connected with a pin connector to the robot.

Solution #3 Clear The Rolling Brush

The rolling brush on the RoboVac effectively cleans the dirt.

However, sometimes it gets stuck in the carpet or becomes clogged with fibers, which causes it to stop.

Possibly, roller brushes on your RoboVac may get jammed, which would be why the RoboVac stops and beeps. 

Solution: You only need to remove the debris and untangle hair from the brushes!

Here is how you can remove stuck debris from roller brushes:

  1. Power OFF the Eufy RoboVac.
  2. Flip over your robot, upside down.
  3. Pull the Release tab to access the Roller Assembly.
  4. Next, remove hair and debris from the roller brush.
  5. Tip: Use the provided Eufy Cleaning Tool.
  6. Clean the Brush Bristles thoroughly.
  7. Also, clean the end of the Roller Brushes.
  8. Reinsert the Roller Brush into Eufy RoboVac.
  9. Finally, place the Brush Guard to secure the roller brush.

When you send Eufy RoboVac on a cleaning mission, the robot should be cleaning without stopping, or beeping.

In case, however, the story is repeated and the issue is still there, then something with the sensors might be wrong.

Let’s learn more in the next solution!

Solution #4 Clean Drop Sensors!

The Drop Sensors use light to protect the RoboVac from detecting surrounding terrain.

It’s possible that the RoboVac isn’t working properly because its sensors are dirty or their functionality is obstructed. 

Solution: You must clean the sensors to prevent the robot from stopping and beeping!

Here is how you clean the Drop Sensors on your Eufy RoboVac easily:

  1. Flip down the Eufy RoboVac.
  2. Take a Dry Fiber Cloth.
  3. Wipe and clean the 3x Drop Sensors.
  4. They are located on the ends of the circular shape.
  5. Also, clean the Charging Contacts of your RoboVac.

Aside from dirt, there are a number of other circumstances that can impact the RoboVac drop sensors, such as dark carpet, intense sunlight, or concentrated light

Tip: To maintain the efficiency of your RoboVac during cleaning, keep it away from harsh lights!

Solution #5 Clean Vacuum Bumper

Sometimes when the Vacuum Bumper is obstructed or somehow displaced, the robot will stop and beep as an indication of a fault.

As this is used to protect robots and home furniture from damage, occasionally it gets collapsed with any object or gets dirty. 

  • To exclude this possibility we only need to clean the vacuum bumper!

Here is how you can clean the RoboVac stuck bumper:

  1. Power OFF the Eufy RoboVac and flip it upside down.
  2. Remove the Side Brushes from the robot.
  3. Take a screwdriver and remove all 8 Bumper Screws.
  4. Slightly pull the Bumper and remove the connected Power Cable.
  5. Now remove the Bumper from RoboVac.
  6. Tap the bumper several times and clean the bumper from the inside and out.
  7. Connect the cable to the bumper and screw the bumper properly in its place.
Note: If you notice any breakage on the bumper, then it is better to replace the component!

Solution #6 Unblock Swivel Wheel

The Swivel Wheel acts as a robot’s feet, but when they become clogged with dirt, hair, or other material, they stop working and make a beeping sound.

Cleaning your RoboVac Swivel Wheels can help tremendously in solving the stopping and beeping issues.

Here is how you can clean your RoboVac swivel wheels:

  1. Flip down your robot on a soft surface.
  2. Grab the Swivel Wheel and pull it off.
  3. (Alternative) You can also use a flathead screwdriver to pull it off.
  4. Remove the tangled hair or debris from the wheel.
  5. Next, wash it under water and let it completely dry.
  6. Push the wheel in its place.

In case your Eufy RoboVac continues to stop and beep, keep reading!

Solution #7 Unclog The Side Brush

Along with the roller brush, side brushes can help clean effectively. However, the side brushes stop the RoboVac immediately when they become jammed or stuck.

So, you need to clean your RoboVac side brushes, because possibly they are the culprit of all this fuss…

Here is how you can clean your RoboVac side brushes:

  1. Power OFF the Eufy RoboVac.
  2. Turn the RoboVac upside down.
  3. Pull off the Circular Side Brushes.
  4. Take a cloth and damp it in warm water.
  5. Now, take that cloth and clean the hairs, and debris from the brushes.
  6. Place the brushes and put them down in their place.
  7. Repeat the same steps for the other side brush.

In case the brushes appear to be OK, continue with cleaning the Fan Inlet next…

Solution #8 Clean Suction Fan Inlet

Occasionally, the RoboVac Suction Fan may become clogged, which stops it from cleaning well and usually causes it to stop in the middle of the session.

All you need to do is clean the Air Inlet and Suction Fan to ensure efficient vacuum flow in your Eufy RoboVac.

clean the suction inlet

Here is how you can clean the RoboVac suction fan and air inlet:

  1. Flip over the Eufy RoboVac.
  2. Remove the Dust Collector from the robot.
  3. Take a Dry Microfiber Cloth and clean the Suction Inlet and Filter.
  4. Turn down your robot, and shake it, so the suction area will be free from dirt.
  5. Then, turn on your robot to check the airflow and then turn it off.
  6. Place all of the parts in their places with the correct alignment.

In case your Eufy RoboVac continues to stop and beep in the middle of a cleaning session, even after all the aforementioned solutions, you’ll need help.
