Why You May Need to Reset Your Litter Robot 4
As an owner of the world’s smartest self-cleaning litter box, the Litter Robot 4, you may encounter a situation where your furry friend’s little throne seems to be acting up.
Don’t panic – in many cases, a simple reset should get your Litter Robot 4 back to purring like a kitten.
Why reset? There are a few reasons a reset may be needed.
Maybe the globe isn’t rotating properly or the cycle timer seems off.
The unit could be stuck in sleep mode or the sensors aren’t detecting your cat.
Whatever the reason, a reset is an easy first step to try before contacting customer service.
To perform a reset, here’s what you’ll do:
- Unplug the Litter Robot 4 from the wall outlet. Give it a full 5 minutes to completely power down.
- Locate the small reset button on the back of the unit, near the power cable. It’s a little pinhole button, so you’ll need something small like a paperclip to press it.
- Press and hold the reset button for 3-5 seconds until you see the blue Wi-Fi indicator light flash.
- Release the reset button. The Litter Robot 4 will now restart with default settings.
- Plug the unit back in and turn the power switch to “ON”. The Litter Robot 4 should go through an automatic test cycle to ensure everything is in working order.
Voila! Your Litter Robot 4 should now be reset and ready to get back to keeping your cat (and you!) happy.
If issues continue after a reset, don’t hesitate to contact Litter Robot support.

Preparing to Reset Your Litter Robot 4
As an owner of the Litter Robot 4, I was thrilled when the new model was released.
However, to take advantage of the upgrades, I had to perform a reset of my unit.
Resetting the Litter Robot 4 is actually quite straightforward if you follow the steps.
To start, make sure your Litter Robot 4 is unplugged and the globe is in the home position.
Next, remove the waste drawer and liner, discarding any used litter.
Give the entire unit a good wipe down with a damp cloth to remove any debris.
Now for the fun part adding fresh litter!
I prefer clumping, unscented litter for the best results.
Pour the litter into the globe, filling it about 2/3 full.
Level and distribute the litter evenly with your hands.
Once your litter is added, replace the waste drawer and liner, making sure they click securely into place.
Plug in your Litter Robot 4 and the reset process will begin automatically.
The unit will cycle through a self-check, then the globe will rotate to sift and settle the new litter.
After a few minutes, the night light on your Litter Robot 4 will turn blue, indicating it is ready for your cat to use!
The litter level may seem low at first, but will increase over the next few cycles as excess litter is sifted out.
I was so excited to have my Litter Robot 4 up and running again with the fresh litter and latest software installed.
My kitties were happy too they love the clean litter and quiet operation of this amazing product!
If at any point in the reset process your Litter Robot 4 is not responding or acting properly, don’t hesitate to contact customer support.
They are always happy to help troubleshoot any issues.
Now you’re all set to enjoy the latest and greatest features of your Litter Robot 4!
Step-by-Step Instructions to Reset Litter Robot 4
I have to admit, when my Litter Robot started acting up, I panicked a little.
This space-age litter box has made my life so much easier, I couldn’t bear the thought of it not working properly!
But after taking a few deep breaths, I realized a simple reset would probably do the trick.
Here are the steps I followed to get my Litter Robot back in working order:
1. Empty the litter tray
The first thing I did was empty the litter tray and wipe it down.
A cluttered, messy tray can sometimes confuse the sensors, so cleaning it out gave the robot a fresh start.
2. Unplug the unit
Next, I unplugged the Litter Robot from the wall for 10 minutes.
This allowed the control panel to fully power off and restart similar to rebooting your computer.
Sometimes unplugging the unit is all it takes to reset its systems.
3. Check for blockages
After 10 minutes, I plugged the unit back in and checked for any blockages in the entrance tunnel, globe, or waste drawer that could be preventing proper operation.
Luckily, everything looked clear!
If you do find a blockage, simply remove it.
4. Perform a hard reset
Finally, with the unit plugged in, I held down the cycle button for 10 seconds until the cycle light flashed.
This performed a hard reset of the Litter Robot.
I released the button, and within a minute, the globe started spinning and the cleaning process began!
My Litter Robot was back to working perfectly.
Resetting your Litter Robot is usually an easy fix and the first thing you should try if it’s acting unusual.
Following these steps should have your futuristic feline fixture functioning in no time!

Cleaning and Maintaining Your Litter Robot 4
Maintaining your Litter Robot 4 is key to keeping it running smoothly and keeping your cat happy.
As an owner of this nifty device for over a year now, I’ve learned through trial and error the best ways to reset and care for my Litter Robot.
Here are my top tips:
Clean the Globe and Base
About once a month, I do a deep clean of the globe and base.
To reset the globe, just lift it out, dump the used litter, and scrub all surfaces with soap and water.
Be sure to clean the weight sensor pad at the bottom too.
Let all parts air dry completely before putting the globe back on the base.
For the base, I vacuum up any stray litter bits and then mop the whole area with a multi-surface cleaner or degreaser and hot water.
While the base is drying, wipe down the exterior of the unit with a disinfecting wipe to remove any dirt or odors.
Inspect and Replace Parts
Every few months, inspect the Litter Robot’s parts for any signs of wear or damage and replace as needed.
The waste drawer liner, globe seal, and entryway mat are parts I’ve had to replace once or twice.
Check that the entryway flap is swinging freely and the globe is rotating properly.
Replace the carbon filters inside the base every 3-6 months to control odors.
Cycle the Globe
To maintain good clumping action and prevent clogs, I cycle the Litter Robot’s globe upside down for a few hours once a week.
Just press the “Empty” button, wait for the cleaning cycle to finish, then lift off the globe and place it upside down on the base so any stuck-on litter can fall off.
This also allows fresh air to fully circulate inside the globe.
By following these reset and maintenance steps routinely, your Litter Robot 4 should provide you and your feline friend with years of hassle-free use.
Keeping it in tip-top shape means a clean, odor-controlled environment for your cat and peace of mind for you!
Troubleshooting Common Litter Robot 4 Reset Issues
Troubleshooting Common Litter Robot 4 Reset Issues
Have you tried resetting your Litter Robot 4 to factory defaults but are still experiencing problems?
Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
Here are some of the most common issues I’ve seen and how to fix them.
The first thing to check is if the unit is plugged in and powered on.
I know, it seems obvious, but you’d be surprised how often this is the culprit! Make sure the Litter Robot is plugged into a working outlet and the power switch is in the “on” position.
If that’s all good, the next thing I would try is manually rotating the globe to make sure it’s not stuck or jammed.
Gently spin the globe all the way around in both directions.
If it’s not moving freely, try loosening the screws on the bottom base plate and reseating it. Tighten the screws back up and the globe should spin like new.
Still not working?
Time to reset the Litter Robot to factory default settings again.
Follow the instructions in your owner’s manual to hard reset the unit.
Sometimes a reset needs to be performed more than once to take effect.
Be patient and keep at it.
The sensor that detects your cat entering and exiting the unit could need cleaning.
Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe down the sensor on the entryway to remove any dirt or debris buildup.
Make sure all litter dust is cleared away from the sensor aperture for best results.
As a last resort, you may need to perform some minor troubleshooting on the circuit board or other internal components.
I would suggest contacting Litter Robot support for guidance before attempting any advanced repairs yourself.
Their customer service team is amazing and will work with you to get your Litter Robot up and running again in no time!
Stay positive – with some patience and persistence, you’ll have your Litter Robot reset and running smoothly once more.
