Dealing with a Deebot vacuum that isn’t charging properly can be a frustrating experience. It’s the last thing you need when you’re relying on your robot cleaner to keep your floors clean and tidy.

This charging issue can arise due to multiple reasons including outdated firmware, dirty charging pins, dead battery, damaged charging station, or faulty wall socket.

In this blog post, I will show you 6 tips that may help you solve this problem and recharge your Deebot vacuum.

So if you’re ready, let’s dive into these troubleshooting tips and get your robot vacuum back to work.

What You Can Do To Fix Deebot Charging Issue?

In the following sections, you will see all the solutions needed to solve your charging problem in more detail so that you can operate your vacuum cleaner as expected.

Solution 1: Power Cycle The Robot.

The first step I recommend to solve the Deebot charging issue is to power cycle the robot. This process may seem basic, but its benefits are great.

Power cycling essentially allows your Deebot to clear temporary glitches that may be causing your charging problem.

To implement this solution, follow these simple instructions:

  1. Locate the main power button on the bottom of your robot (newer ones have them on the side).
  2. Turn it off and wait a few seconds to ensure complete shutdown.
  3. Then turn it back on again.

Solution 2: Clean The Charging Pins.

Your Deebot robot vacuum relies on metal contact plates on the robot that are precisely aligned with metal pins on the charging base to transfer power and charge the battery.

Over time, dirt and dust can build up on these pins and disrupt power transmission, causing charging problems.

To prevent this problem, make it a habit to clean these pins regularly. A soft microfiber cloth is your best friend for this task, ensuring gentle and effective cleaning without risking any scratches.

Keeping these pins clean ensures a smooth charging process, so you can always count on your Deebot for your cleaning needs.

Solution 3: Update The Firmware

Updating the Deebot firmware is another thing to consider when looking for a solution to fix your robot’s charging issues.


Since outdated firmware can cause bugs and errors that may prevent the device from charging properly, I suggest updating your vacuum as soon as a new version is released.

Here are the steps to follow to update your robot vacuum:

  1. Login in the ECOVACS HOME App.
  2. Tap the Enter Smart Cleaning.
  3. Tap the setting icon on the right top corner of the screen.
  4. Select “About DEEBOT“, then tap on ”Update DEEBOT“.

Solution 4: Check The Wall Outlet.

It’s easy to overlook, but the health of your wall outlet can play a significant role in your Deebot vacuum cleaner’s charging performance.

When your wall socket is damaged, it can disrupt the flow of electricity to the charging dock, leaving your robot hungry for power.

To spot potential outlet troubles, keep an ear out for unusual sounds like buzzing, popping, or cracking. Visual cues matter too, be on the lookout for visible cracks or signs of melting.

Sometimes, the outlet may be faulty even if you don’t see any of the above signs, so I suggest plugging the charging dock into another outlet to see if it’s working.

Solution 5: Reset The Robot.

If your Deebot vacuum is still refusing to charge despite trying all the previous troubleshooting tips, then it’s time to consider a hard reset.

This process essentially restores your Deebot to its factory settings, wiping away many persistent issues that may be causing the charging problem.

A hard reset can breathe new life into your Deebot, erasing many hidden glitches and ensuring it’s back on track to provide you with efficient, hassle-free cleaning once again.

The only thing I hate about this solution is that it will delete all the settings and preferences inside your gadget and you’ll have to set it from the beginning.

Here’s how to perform a hard reset:

  1. Turn the ECOVACS DEEBOT turning on the power switch.
  2. Once the DEEBOT is on, press the reset button located next to the power button for more than 6 seconds until there’s a sound coming out.
  3. Once you hear the beep sound 3 times from the device, the DEEBOT has been reset.
  4. Congratulations, your ECOVACS DEEBOT has been reset.

Solution 6: Replace The battery and The Charging Dock.

The Ecovacs Deebot vacuum cleaner runs on a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery which, according to the company, can last 100 to 200 minutes depending on the model you have.

Over time and with many repetitive charging cycles, the battery will run out and you will need to replace it with a new one to continue operating your robot.

So, when you notice that your robot is frequently facing charging issues and your battery has been working for a long time, make sure to replace it with a new one and then test your vacuum cleaner again.

The same goes for the charging station, as it can be damaged by a sudden high electrical surge that affects its internal components, causing it to stop supplying power to your robot’s battery.


That’s all I have for you in this article, if none of these troubleshooting tips work for you, you can always contact Ecovacs customer support or take your device to a technician for repair.
