Litter-Robot III | How To Fix Blinking Flashing RED Light, Diagnose, Repair & Replace LR3 Cat Sensor

The red blinking light indicates CATS (the cat sensor) is detecting excess weight for more than 2 minutes. In this comprehensive tutorial video guide, Aiman will take you through the steps of troubleshooting and diagnosing the red flashing light on your Litter-Robot III (LR3) Open Air automatic self-cleaning robotized litter-box if it stopped working and displaying the above fault message or error code. In most cases, the red blinking or flashing light on the front panel indicates defective CATS sensor, but the first thing you should do before taking further steps is to do the following: Please check your unit for: * The litter is above the fill line or in excess of 10lbs. * CATS has not been reset after adding weight * The waste drawer has too much weight * The unit is sitting on an uneven surface ‐ grout lines on tile floor or in a bathtub. * The unit is pushed into a corner, against a wall, or furniture * Objects are resting or pressing on the unit To test your changes, power the unit off and then on. Allow the unit to complete the start‐up cycle and return Home with a solid blue light which indicates your unit is operating normally. Always press Reset after emptying the waste drawer, adding litter, or moving the unit. You can also turn the unit OFF then ON to ensure the baseline is set properly. When pressing Reset, watch for the blue light to quickly flash one time. This indicates CATS has been successfully reset. If none of the above solves the issue: 1. Remove the bonnet. 2. Remove the globe 3. Replace the bonnet 4. Press Cycle (without the globe on the unit) 5. Allow the motor to run for 5 seconds, at any point, does it stop and flash red? If no, then excess weight needs to be removed from the globe. If yes, (it blinks red), then watch this video for further steps. In this video, Aiman will show you how to take apart Litter-Robot III and test the CATS sensor to see if it is actually the culprit by using a simple multi-meter to measure the resistance in the pressure sensor. Aiman will also show you how to jump the CATS sensor should you need to continue to operate LR3 while waiting for the parts to arrive. Please note that you should only do this at your own discretion as jumping or bypassing the sensor might damage the LR3 circuit board. He will then show you how to remove, replace and repair the CATS sensor. When putting back the bottom foot bolt, It's essential that you DO NOT overtighten the nut as it will crush the cat sensor. If your foot is white (and the bolt is 1 7/8'' cm) : you need to screw for the bolt to be about ~1/4" (6.35mm) from the bolt. If your foot is black (and the bolt is 1 5/8'' cm) : you need to screw for the bolt to just be a mm from the bolt. Taking apart the unit is actually quite simple and easy, however there are a few specialized tools you might need and Aiman will explain that in this video. Keep in mind that we're are owners of LR3 and not the expert in fixing the unit. There are forums and blogs available online if you need help with how to diagnose, troubleshoot and solve your issues.

If you have a Litter-Robot III Open Air 3 and it's stopped working with yellow blinking / flashing light and/or the globe does not rotate in normal operating cycle or spinning continuously counter clockwise in one direction, then this video might be for you.

With this type of yellow light error, if you continue to press power or cycle button, the globe will continue to spin in one direction and the key on the back of the globe might snap out and sometimes the bonnet will come loose.

Of course if your unit is still under warranty, then you should call the Automated Pet Care Products, Inc. DBA AutoPets (https://www.litter-robot.com/warranty.html), Robot Shop (https://www.robotshop.com/en/litter-robot-iii-open-air-automatic-self-cleaning-litter-box.html‎) or any other authorized dealers where you bought the unit from, and have them diagnose via the phone. They will either send you a replacement part or fix it under the terms of the warranty. But what if the unit is not longer under warranty or you bought it from someone else or it was a gift? Then hopefully this video can help you.

If you searched online, it might tell you that there is a problem with excess weight, globe positioning or defective hall effect sensor. Based on our experience however, this blinking yellow light as shown in our video is because of the anti-pinch safety feature malfunctioned or became defective.

Basically, if the globe is blinking the yellow light, you will need to replace the Cat Sensor or re-position the Anti-Pinch safety feature.

The Anti-Pinch safety feature is two pin connected to the motherboard that must touched each other continuously. If they are separated, you will have an alarm (yellow blinking light). The Anti-Pinch safety is located in the bottom back left of the Litter-Robot. You will need to unplug the unit, remove the bonnet, the globe and the drawer. It is the ''Two Metal'' pins. With a flash light, you should be able to see if they are touching each other or not.

If they are not touching each other, try to re-position them with a flat screw driver by pushing them upwards. However, if they are touching each other, you will need to replace your cat sensor.

With Litter-Robot III Open Air, should you have any problems or error lights, the first thing you should do is to empty out the litter, take apart the unit, thoroughly clean it and then put it back together and re-test the unit. Make sure the put the unit on a flat surface and away from the wall or corners. Most of the times, these simple procedures will help you repair the problems you encountered.

In this video, we will take you through the steps on opening the bottom base unit and to remove or replace the anti-pinch detectors.

Sometimes, the flashing yellow light might be followed by blinking red light or timing indicator, and in that case you might have to replace the cat sensor as well. If you need to replace the cat sensor, you check on our step-by-step tutorial video guide here: https://youtu.be/CNZOnJvPp9Q
