Litter-Robot 3: Cycle delay setting

The cycle delay 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 cycle delay is 7 minutes.

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

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

How to use cycle delay setting:

Press and hold the Empty button for about 5 seconds to enter cycle delay setting mode. One of the lights will start flashing, indicating the current cycle delay 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.
