Error Codes - Bob Standard (1001 Series)

If Bob runs into trouble while cleaning your room, he will display on his screen the word “error” coupled with a specific number. Each number corresponds to a specific issue.

Error 0

Error code 0 means Bob’s left wheel is jammed. Check his wheel for any blockage, then clean the area with the cleaning tool or compressed air.

Clean the sensors using a clean, dry cloth and compressed air. If Bob displays this error while working on dark-colored or patterned carpeting, you may need to blindfold him. Use the blindfold stickers that came in Bob's box to cover his 4 edge sensors.

After 8 hours of charging, unplug Bob. When you flip his power switch ON he should no longer display the error on his screen.
