LR 3 | Bonnet Connections

Created by Ken MacCormick, Modified on Sat, 28 May 2022 at 04:58 AM by Ken MacCormick

If the bonnet is not securely connected, the globe will not rotate and the yellow light will blink. Another option could be that the black key on the back of the globe is not in the slot and it is lifting the bonnet.

If the bonnet and key have been correctly assembled, and the yellow light is still flashing and not allowing your Litter-Robot to cycle, we would ask you to please:

1. Disconnect the bonnet
2. Gently flex the two front bonnet tabs outward

3. Reattach the bonnet
 You should feel a secure snap and hear a solid “click” when placed back into the slot, and the bonnet should sit closer to the base.

Please view the video on how to remove and replace the bonnet here:

While the bonnet is removed, we can also make sure the metal sensors on the bonnet and the base are clean and free of dust or debris. There are 2 metal sensors on the left side of the bonnet just underneath the black plastic housing. When the bonnet is connected, these make contact with 2 metal sensors on the top left side of the base. They can be cleaned with a damp cloth if necessary.

If the trouble persists, we would like to check the nightlight connection. The wires that run across the underside of the bonnet end in a micro connector that plugs into the circuit board inside the nightlight housing. Gently push this micro connector into the circuit board to ensure the connection.

The fin on the globe may be catching on the bonnet wires and causing the rotation to pause with a yellow flashing light.

Have any of the wires been pulled loose or appear as if the arc of wires has been pulled to form a sharp angle rather than an even arc? If so, we would recommend securing the wires by taping them flat against the bonnet.
