How to Fix Ecovacs Deebot that keeps Beeping (STEPS)

Why is my Ecovacs Deebot beeping?

The Ecovacs Deebot cleaning robot will start beeping because of jammed/blocked brush rollers, a malfunctioning wheel motor, or a full dustbin.

  • Jammed/blocked brush rollers
  • Malfunctioning wheel motor
  • Full dustbin


Debris in the main brush rollers

The brush rollers tend to accumulate a lot of debris which causes them to get jammed or blocked. You can remove the debris from the brush rollers with a pair of scissors.


Malfunctioning wheel motors

Hold the device upside down while it is still running, and check the motion of the wheels. If neither wheel is moving, the wheel motors must be replaced to end the beep noises.


Full dustbin

If the dustbin of the Deebot is full, it won’t pick up any debris and will make a beep sound. Once you empty the dustbin, the Deebot will stop beeping.


Why is my Ecovacs Deebot constantly beeping?

Your Ecovacs Deebot is constantly beeping due to a fully discharged battery or inability to connect to the mobile’s Wi-Fi network. The constant beep may also be because the anti-drop sensors at the bottom of the robot have accumulated dust. You can re-activate or replace the battery, check the Wi-Fi settings and credentials, and use the multi-function cleaning tool to clean the anti-drop sensors.


How to stop my Ecovacs Deebot from beeping?

You can stop your Ecovacs Deebot from beeping by checking if the Deebot dust bin compartment is full, examining the motherboard for defects or damage, and checking if the front bumper is stuck.

  1. Open the dustbin compartment.
  2. Empty the dustbin of all its contents.
  3. Close the dustbin.
