Braava 380t Troubleshooting

The device will not turn on.

Your mopping device isn’t moving, and the lights aren’t turning on.

Battery No Longer Holds A Charge

Replace battery

The Battery Has Not Been Charged.

Before attempting to use the gadget, plug it in and wait for the battery to fully charge. A defective AC adapter might possibly be the cause of this issue. Check the current of the AC adapter using a voltmeter if the light on the AC adapter does not turn on. To do so, connect the adapter to a power source, turn on the voltmeter, connect the red terminal of the voltmeter to the pin inside the ac adapter’s plug, connect the black terminal of the voltmeter to ground (any piece of metal), and check for current. The ac adapter is operational if the voltmeter registers a current. If this is the case, the ac adapter should be replaced.

The Battery Is Not Properly Attached.

It’s possible that the battery isn’t correctly connected. With a flat-head screwdriver, remove the bottom battery panel and double-check that the cables are securely connected.

The Power Button Is Broken.

It’s possible that the power button is damaged or that there’s an impediment under the surface of the panel. It’s possible that the button will need to be replaced.

Braava 380t Troubleshooting

The device won’t move normally

Your iRobot moves in an irregular pattern; going in circles, not turning

Wheel Motor Fault

One-wheel motor may be burned out if the gadget isn’t spinning or traveling in circles.

The wheels had become stuck.

During regular use, the wheel axles may become clogged with hair or other material. If this is the case, use tweezers or other instruments to remove the material. Remove the wheels to fully clean the wheel-axles assembly if you are still unable to remove the debris.

Attaching the Mop Head Incorrectly

Make sure the mopping cloth is securely fastened to the cleaning pad and is not tangled. To verify the appropriate connection, disconnect and reconnect the cleaning pad to the iRobot.

Navigation Cube

A defective navigation cube or a signal interruption might cause irregular travel. Make sure there are no obstacles in the navigation cube’s line of sight. If there are no obstacles, the guidance cube may need to be replaced.

Braava Is Backing Up

The floor transition sensor is activated

Remove and reapply the cleaning cloth. When reapplying, follow these instructions:

  • Ensure the cloth does not overlap with the middle channel of the removable cleaning pad
  • Ensure the cloth is not bunching up, which can prevent the removable pad from reattaching completely to the robot.

If the flooring is uneven or has wide grout lines, place Braava on smoother flooring to see if the problem persists.
