  All Litter-Robot III Open Air's purchased with us comes with a 12-month manufacturer warranty (2 years for Europe). However, before having customers send the product for repairs, we suggest verifying the following:   1. Turn the power Off and unplug the Power Supply from the Base of the unit.

2. Remove the Bonnet from the unit and set it aside, then remove the Globe and set it aside making sure that it does not roll.

  3. Ensure the Base is properly situated on a hard level surface, that it is not pushed against a wall, and has nothing resting on it. Empty the Waste Drawer regardless of how much waste is collected.

  4. Put the Globe back on the base unit and ensure that it is on the track. If you feel that the Globe is heavy to one side or another, check in the Litter Pocket to make sure that there is no wet or clumped litter stuck that is throwing off the weight of the unit during cycling. Ensure the Globe is filled to the Fill Line and not above the Fill Line.

8. The unit should start to cycle, upon return, the unit will perform a "reset" and use that weight as its baseline moving forward.
