The bonnet does not snap into place as it should, meaning that after 1 or 2 cleaning cycles it comes somewhat loose and you may receive an error message saying the bonnet is not attached. Easy to fix but you have to push it back into place every few days. The control panel is not easy to reset, even if you hold the buttons for the amount of time the manual recommends it still doesn't initiate the choice you select. Without downloading the app, the litter-box would be pointless as you have to reset it every few days with the app.
This broke after just a couple weeks. I returned the item using the FedEx return label Chewy provided. I had to call and email three different times about the refund to be told "it takes time to process the return." A month later I called again and they stated "The warehouse documented the item was not in the box." They will not refund the money so now I don't have a Litter Robot or a refund. This is a total scam.
Compared to my other one this one is super LOUD. You can hear it turning no matter where you are in my house and is constantly waking me up at night. The buttons on the side do not work, I have to sit there and press them repeatedly for it to finally register I'm pressing it. The phone app sucks, when you press a button to command the robot to do anything it takes forever just for it to register. I cleaned it, put litter in it and suddenly it repeatedly said "Your cat is curious cleaning will restart in 30 seconds" then "looks like its twking a bit if no cat is present please hot restart". I fought with it for a hour and gave up on it and had to bring out the old og box litter. After bout 3 hours suddenly it just magically fixed itself. I just do not recommend this one. There are more cons then pros here.
It's expensive and my cats prefer the old litter boxes. One cat started peeing on a couch when I got this. I put the old litter boxes back out and the cat stopped. I have this plugged in still in a hallway, but my two cats prefer the boxes. The litter that is recommended seems to be more flaky and messy than the brand I normally use. If I had it to do over again I would pass. I do think that a young cat would accept it and use it.
I had this for less than 6 months, ended up putting it out for garbage pickup. It worked well at first but then wouldn’t rotate to clean, even when I pushed buttons. I would unplug and plug in an again and then I could hit the button for it to clean. Unfortunately it didn’t last long and it quit rotating and nothing happened when I selected buttons- including to empty it. Maybe I got a wonky one but it’s too much money to invest to try again.
Definitely an investment item but wishing I had bought this sooner! Super easy to install. Just had to remove the Litter Robot from the box and plug the power chord into the back of the machine and into the wall, download the Whisker app and ready to go! Both of my cats instantly took to it!
This litter box is an absolute life and time saver. My cats and I love this little machine! The only problem I get with the litter robot 3, is that sometimes it will stop in the middle of a cycle and just stay in that position but I have quickly realized that if it senses that the tray is to full then it won't complete the cycle until you have emptied the tray and reset the guage.
I have this litter-box and at first it was great. Unfortunately, after about 2 months it quit working. The folks at litter robot were very helpful, sent me a replacement box but it too stopped working after a couple of weeks. I’m getting ready to toss it in the trash and go back to scooping.
Bought in aug and have had problems a week after I bought. Kitten didn’t weigh enough to have it rotate. Once he was big enough it errors all the time. Now it errors every time he uses it. Litter just sticks to the bottom
My 2 cats took to the LR in no time. My one cat is a bit obsessed with it. Every time it starts she goes right to it and watches it turn. There is less loose litter on the floor compared to traditional litter boxes and the smell is almost non existent. Instead of scooping the box once or twice, I empty this one every other day. I am truly happy with the product. Its definitely worth 5+ stars. PS added the steps later just for fun!
