Deebot N78 troubleshooting and FAQs

Question: Where can I get the manual of Deebot N78

Answer: You can get the manual here.

Question: Why Deebot n78 not charging?

Answer: Sometimes, Deebot n78 not charging can be due to clogging issue. You can try to turn off the robot, clean the robot entirely and turn back on. You can try a factory reset the Deebot N78 to resolve the issue. If it still can’t charge, you may need to check with Ecovacs.

Question: Where can I get Deebot n78 replacement battery?

Answer: Head up to Ecovacs website, they have spare parts for Deebot N78.

Question: When the Deebot docks for recharging, does it turn itself off after charging is completed?

Answer: Yes, it does.

Question:  I’ve noticed it doesn’t pick up much on our carpet/ thin rugs, why is that?

Answer: Deebot N78 is not designed for cleaning carpet though. In this case, you may move to other options: Deebot M80 Pro (if you need both carpet cleaning plus wet mopping) or Deebot N79 (if you don’t need wet mopping)

Question: The remote does not work even after changing batteries. Any suggestions? The device is new and remote has never worked.

Answer: I don’t know, you may contact Ecovacs to get a new one.

Question: Is the bottom yellow silicon part that directs debris into the Deebot replaceable? I have used mine so much it is wearing out so not as effective.

Answer: The brushes are replaceable. It comes with extras.

Question: Does it work on dark floors/carpets

Answer: Yes it does work on dark floor but not very well on carpets.

Question: will Deebot n78 pick up human hair and not tangle?

Answer: I wouldn’t think so, unless it gets tangled in the two spinning brushes on the front that feed to the suction port underneath

Question: can robotic vacuums do wall to wall carpet ?

Answer: It can do low carpets. It has long sweepers that hit the walls.

Question: What does “thin carpet” mean? Mine has heavy-duty padding, so is high off the floor, but does not have deep pile. Would this work on that?

Answer: We have primarily tile floors with carpet throw rugs scattered around that have virtually no pile, and it handles them well, not sure this model is good for primarily carpet floors

Can it handle lots of pine needles on hardwood?

Answer: Its pretty good at picking up lots of items. I would say it can pick up them also.

Question: Curious if this recognizes black portions on carpet as “falling off a step” like the Roomba does? I see it has sensors on the bottom.

Answer: I don’t think so. I have a dark area rug and it goes on and off it without an issue.. but so does my roomba.

Question: Can you use this on really dark hardwood floors?

Answer: All of our units have edge detection technology which allows them to clean the area around a staircase without the user having to fear the unit will fall. They do this by using a refracting light beam.

Question: Have a raised ranch, will this fall off stairs?

Answer: Yes it will as it stops at walls only or obstacles. You can watch it closely and also put something across the steps to stop it and then carry it down the stairs when it has finished upstairs.

Question: we just recieved ours …Is it normal to have a high pitched whine when its vacuuming ? seems to work great the sound is very annoying though

Answer: I’ve never heard any sounds like this with mine.

Question: While this robot cleans exeptionally, I honestly have to control it to make sure it actually gets the whole house. Can it learn my home?

Answer: Nope. It is a bit random, and does not learn.

Question: My deebot has stopped working, it takes off and then flashes thebred triangle with the exclamation point at me, ive tried everything!!

Answer: mine is getting moody too it works after a month of no use and starts making circular motions and stops.

Question: I had a roomba and when it went from my laminate to my rug it left a pile of debris. Can anyone tell me if this works better??

Answer: My Deepbot has never done that. It works better than the past 3 Roomba models I e had.

Question: I lost my remote after only 2 days!!! Can I order a replacement??
Answer: Not sure, but I think so.

Question: Do you have to use the auto schedule function or can you just have the bot run when you’re home?

Answer: You do not have to use the auto schedule function. You can just turn it on when you get home and put it anywhere you want it to get started.
