Xiaomi Robot vacum 2 (Mijia) Problem. Error 5

Postby 3kgt » May 18th, 2018, 4:02 pm

Just "uppgraded" or thats what i thought anyway to the Xiaomi vers 2.
Sadly already day 1 and on every cleanup it hangs upp 2-4 times and gives error 5 (Main brush stuck)! And the brush is totaly clean. Use it on low carpet.
Read that others have same problem. No fix ...
Any advise? Bought it from Aliexpress. And returning it is not an option sadly
Love robot vacums :)

I've only heard about that error in gen 1 but not sure about #2. Have you tried running on tile/hardwood only for a bit to see if it goes off?

No . Problem is only with carpets what i have seen. I have carpet in the whole house. Still it should not behave like this.
And many complained about gen 2 in Xiaomi forums.

then i guess the motors are still the same as gen 1, I trimmed one of my bristles and it hasn't stopped on my compact carpet thus far.

Did you try to change settings? For instance to turn off carpet mode, or other settings. Just a thought...
Goodluck. Let us know if you found a solution. Until now Gen 1 and Gen 2 work flawlessly in our house.

I did try carpet mode On. 1 time. And it worked without Eroor 5.
But Problem is that it will shorten the life of the vacum since it runs at max all the time + its acting pretty strange, most of the time even if its running on carpet it changes from Balanced (my normal mode) to Max! + running on Max is preety loud.
