Litter-Robot 3: No power

If your Litter-Robot 3 is not powering on, there are several things we need to check.

Ensure Litter-Robot is plugged directly into a wall outlet. We do not recommend using an extension cord or power strip. 

  1. Unplug the power supply from the wall.
  2. Confirm that your outlet is working by testing it with a known working device, such as a lamp or cell phone charger.
  3. Check that the power supply label reads 15V DC 1000mA or 1A.
  4. Visually inspect the power supply cord for any deformities, punctures, or other anomalies.
  5. If the base has been damaged by liquid or you've had any power fluctuations or power outages in your home due to outages or brownouts, you may need to replace your power supply or base.
  6. Plug the power supply back in and press the Power button to turn the unit on.
  7. When powered back on, your unit will perform a Clean cycle.
  8. Once the Clean cycle is complete, the unit should go back to blue "Ready" status.

Successful: Once the initial Clean cycle is complete, the unit should return home displaying a blue 'ready light' status.

Unsuccessful: If you've completed this troubleshooting and your Litter-Robot is still not powering on, your unit needs to be repaired.

Issue not resolved?

To repair your Litter-Robot, you will need a power supply or a base depending on the issue. We recommend beginning with a power supply replacement.
