FAQ

Do not vacuum wet surfaces, any type of liquids, hot substances (embers, cigarettes), super fine substances (plaster, cement, ash, etc.), large sharp waste (glass), harmful products (solvents, abrasives, etc.), aggressive products (acids, cleaning products, etc.), inflammable and explosive products (oil or alcohol based).
Place the charging base station against a wall, on a flat surface and where the robot vacuum cleaner can easily find it.
This location must be free from any obstacles (including rugs). Leave at least 1 metre of space free to the left and the right and 2 metres at the front of the base station. If the station is placed in a corner or if it is difficult to find, the robot vacuum cleaner will not be able to reach it.
Place the base station's power cable along the wall.
For more information, refer to the instructions in your user manual.
Leave the charging base station plugged in permanently (the automatic recharge function will not be available if the charging station is not activated).
In Random mode, recharging is managed in an automatic way.
Automatic charging will take place whenever the battery is weak. The robot will connect itself to the automatic recharge terminal.
Once the robot is automatically connected to the charging station, check the status of the LED display to ensure charging is being carried out correctly.
Yes, the robot can be charged up on the charging station even when the robot's main power switch is turned off.
In Smart mode, recharging is managed in an automatic and intelligent way.
Automatic charging will take place each time cleaning is finished or when the battery is weak. The robot will connect itself to the automatic recharge terminal.
Once the robot is automatically connected to the charging station, check the status of the LED display to ensure charging is being carried out correctly.
In Smart mode, the robot moves one way which allows it to vacuum each area once only.
This is ideal for daily cleaning and for barely furnished and/or empty rooms.
In Random mode, the robot moves in a random way until the battery runs out.
This is ideal for intensive cleaning and for fully furnished and/or cluttered rooms.
In Spot mode, the robot carries out a spiral movement of about 1 metre in diameter in order to intensively clean a space as previously defined.
Ideal for localised cleaning.
Yes, by using the remote control in manual mode. The robot moves about as required by remote control with the help of the arrow keys. Please refer to the user instructions to use the robot in this mode.
Yes, you can program the robot so that it vacuum cleans at specific moments, even when you are not at home. Please refer to the user instructions to use the robot in this mode. A daily cleaning function at a given time is even possible.
Yes, by pressing the button on your remote control.
To cancel the Mute function, press the button again on your remote control.
Place the virtual barrier box about 30 cm in front of the place where you would like to limit access. Place it in the direction of the arrow where you wish to create the Virtual Barrier and make sure that there isn't anything blocking it in front. The opposite end of the virtual barrier box must be in contact with a physical wall. Keep the virtual barrier at some distance from the charging station (more than 3m). If the virtual barrier is installed near it, the signal from the virtual barrier blocks the charging station and the robot will not be able to return there.
Do not use more that two virtual barriers at the same time. Moreover, the use of several virtual barriers for a small surface area can cause the appliance to malfunction.
For more information, refer to the instructions in your user manual.
No, the carpets and rugs cannot be more than 1.5 cm thick. Cleaning cannot be carried out if the carpets or rugs are dull or dark. The side brush cannot function correctly on carpets and may damage them.
Use the appliance only after having cleared the floor. Pick up and put away any objects strewn across the floor and any objects that are unstable as they may cause problems during vacuuming (for example, small rugs, wires, nails, etc.).
In addition, do not use the appliance in places that are deemed dangerous e.g. on a wet surface or near fragile or dangerous objects such as a candle or a glass bowl (this might cause a fire or damage the robot).
Do not use your appliance. In order to avoid any danger, you must have them replaced by an approved vacuum repair company.
Do not use your appliance. To avoid any danger, do not touch the terminals. You must unplug the charging station and have it replaced by an approved vacuum repair company.
Empty the dust container into a bin after each use. Clean the dust compartment seals with a cloth.
If the anti-dust filter (HEPA filter) is dirty, lightly tap on the filter cassette while holding it over your bin in order to remove excess dust. Clean it with a vacuum cleaner or a soft brush.
Warning: Do not put the filter under water. Water can damage the motor.
Remove the foam filter (located behind the HEPA filter), gently wash it under running water and leave it to dry for at least 12 hours before placing it back again in its compartment.
When you notice that suctioning is less effective, clean the HEPA filter or replace it if it is in poor condition.
Turn the main switch off immediately (in order to avoid any risk of fire or of damaging the robot vacuum cleaner).
Have your appliance checked over by an approved vacuum repair company.

Yes, your ROWENTA robot vacuum cleaner is equipped with intelligent space sensors which protect it against falling.
However, there may be some situations where the space sensors are not as efficient; for example, around the edges of curved staircases, where there are rugs next to stairs, on slippery surfaces and when the sensors are obstructed.
You can perform the following checks:
Put the main power switch onto STOP and then onto START.
Unplug the cable and then plug it into the charging station again.
Make sure that the charging terminals and the sensor windows are not clogged up, then wipe the main body and the charging station with a dry cloth. Do not forget to switch off the main power switch and to turn off the robot before drying carefully.
Check to see if there is any obstacle such as a reflective object, a chair, etc. near the charging station.
If after these different checks, the automatic charging still does not work properly, have your robot vacuum cleaner checked by an approved vacuum repair company.
Your robot can run in a range of languages (French, Spanish, Italian, English, Dutch, German or Portuguese) depending on the model. To select your language, press the button on your remote control.
Check:
That the switch underneath the robot is correctly in the 'ON' position.
That the display is lit up. If not, charge up the robot on the base station.
Check the following elements:
• The charging station must not be on a rug.
• The charging station must not be exposed to sunlight or near a heat source.
• The free space to the side and the front of the charging station is adhered to according to the instructions in the user manual. If not, move the charging station or the objects in the way.
• Is the round plug connected correctly to the charging station? If not, plug the charger's round plug into the charging station.
• Is the charger cable connected to the power supply? If not, connect the charger to the power supply.
• Is there an object near the charging base station? If so, remove any objects around the charging station.
• Are there any objects near the charging station terminals? If so, remove all objects on the charging station terminals.
• Is the charging station deactivated (led red)? If so, activate the charging station by connecting it to the power supply.
• If the virtual barrier is in place, is it placed at a distance from the charging station (more than 3m)? This is because if the virtual barrier is installed near it, the signal from the virtual barrier blocks the charging station and the robot will not be able to return there.
If after checking these elements, the robot still cannot find the base station, have it checked over by an approved vacuum repair company.
Check:
If the dust container is full.
The cleanliness of the filters.
If there is an object or rubbish which may be obstructing the suction hole underneath the robot.
Check:

That the robot is charged up enough. If not, change the batteries in the remote control.
Check:
That there isn't an object or something else stuck under a wheel.
That the robot is not blocked due to differences in the floor level.
That there isn't an error message displayed. (see the troubleshooting and error codes section in your user manual).
