Litter-Robot 3: Wait Time Setting

The Wait Time is the elapsed time starting from when your cat exits the globe until the unit starts a clean cycle. It can be set for 3, 7, or 15 minutes. 

The default Wait Time is 7 minutes.

Reduce the Wait Time if it is important to minimize odor and/or the time that waste is accessible to other pets, such as dogs. Reducing the Wait Time may reduce the cleaning effectiveness if clumps do not have enough time to set up. 

Extend the Wait Time when using a lower-quality clumping litter that needs more time to set up. 

How to use Wait Time Setting:

Press and hold the Empty button for about 5 seconds to enter Wait Time Setting mode. One of the lights will start flashing, indicating the current Wait Time Setting. 

Use the Reset button to toggle to the next setting:

  • Blue = 3 minutes
  • Yellow = 7 minutes
  • Red = 15 minutes 

Press and hold the Empty button to save the setting. The blue light will blink to confirm, then return to standby.
