    Sweep and Mop Modes
    Braava sweeps and mops hard surface floors using readily available dry and
    wet cleaning cloths or the included reusable microfiber cloths.
    Braava is not a vacuum and is not intended for use on carpets.

    Sweep Mode
    Sweep mode is intended for cleaning with a dry cloth.
    In Sweep mode, Braava moves
    ahead in a straight line when it begins
    cleaning, then cleans back and forth
    in parallel lines.
    It is ideal for picking up dust, dirt and
    hair to maintain clean, grit-free floors
    every day.

    Mop Mode
    Mop mode is intended for cleaning with a wet cloth.
    In Mop mode, Braava drives forward
    a short distance to one side, backs
    up slightly then moves forward to the
    other side, alternating to the left and
    right as it progresses.
    This mopping action helps dissolve
    and pick up the deeper dirt and grime
    on your floors.
     raava automatically adjusts to a smaller
    B
    cleaning area in Mop mode to optimize
    cleaning while the cloth is wet.
    TIP: S
     tart with dry Sweep mode to pick up surface grit and then follow
    with a wet cloth in mopping mode to get a deeper clean.

    Cleaning Cloths
    Disposable Cloths
    For use only with the Multi-Purpose Cleaning Pad.
    • Braava is compatible with most disposable dry and pre-moistened
    cleaning cloths such as Swiffer® brand and store brands like Target®.
    • Always follow the use and care instructions included with any dry or wet
    cleaning cloths to care for your floors.
    • Please note that Braava is not compatible with Swiffer® WetJet® Refills.

    Microfiber Cloths
    Braava’s specially designed microfiber cloths can be rewashed and reused.
    • White cloths are for dry sweeping with the Multi-Purpose Cleaning Pad.
    • Blue textured cloths are for mopping and can be used with either the
    Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad or the Multi-Purpose Cleaning Pad. Dampen
    cloth before use.
    NOTICE: Wet cloths may not be suitable for cleaning unsealed
    floors. Ask your flooring manufacturer or installer if you are unsure
    whether damp mopping is safe for your floor.

    Floor Types
    • Braava is designed to clean hard surface floors including wood, tile, vinyl,
    linoleum and laminate.
    • Braava cleans best on smooth hard surfaces and may not perform on
    uneven tiles, heavily waxed floors or rough surfaces like slate or brick
    which can snag the cleaning cloth.
    NOTICE: Braava is not intended to pick up large debris. Before
    cleaning with Braava, pick up large debris and check for gravel or sharp
    objects that could scratch the floor if captured under the cleaning pad.

    How Braava Cleans
    Braava intelligently cleans your floor by mapping the room as it cleans.

    Cleaning Cycle
    • Braava cleans your home in sections, first cleaning areas to its right and
    later returning to areas to its left.
    • When the open areas in each section are complete, Braava cleans along
    edges of furniture and walls before moving on.
    • When finished, Braava returns to where it started and parks itself.

    Cleaning Pattern
    • In open areas, Braava methodically cleans back
    and forth across your floor.
    • As Braava encounters chair legs, furniture and
    other obstacles, it cleans around them and
    continues its cleaning pattern.
    • Braava detects stairs and will maneuver away
    from drop offs and back to the cleaning area.
     As a safety precaution, open ledges or
    balconies with a drop of 2 feet or more
    should be blocked off with a physical barrier.
    • Braava also detects area rugs and raised transitions
    to carpet so it can avoid driving on to them.
    Note: If your carpet is flush with your hard surface floor,
    you may need to add a temporary barrier to provide Braava
    a boundary it can detect.

    • Braava follows along walls and edges as it
    encounters them and as it completes each section
    it cleans.

    Braava 300 Series Owner’s Manual



  • Page 15

    Quick Clean Mode
    • Cleans 30% faster by focusing cleaning on open areas.
    • Activate by holding the Sweep or Mop button for 3 seconds.
    • You will hear a single beep followed by the “start cleaning” song.
    • Braava typically cleans the same total area as the standard detailed
    cleaning mode, but will skip detailed cleaning around furniture and some
    walls to save time.

    Pause / Resume
     raava will automatically pause if you pick it up or press any button
    B
    while cleaning.
    • The cleaning mode button will flash blue to indicate the cleaning cycle
    is paused. While paused, Braava will save the map of the area it has
    already cleaned.
    • To resume cleaning, place Braava within 6 feet of the Cube where it
    originally started, facing in the same general direction it started.
    • Press the flashing cleaning mode button.
    • Braava will start cleaning while it determines its position on the map.
    Once it confirms its position, it will drive to an area not yet covered and
    continue cleaning.
    • Braava may re-clean an area already covered or explore new areas of
    cleaning while determining its position on the map.
    • If you resume Braava where you paused it, it may take longer for the
    cleaner to determine its position depending on its distance from the Cube.
    • To exit Pause and quit the cleaning cycle, power Braava off by holding the
    power button for 2 seconds.
    Note: Braava can only be paused after it has locked onto the NorthStar
    Navigation Cube at the beginning of the cleaning cycle.

    NorthStar Navigation
    ®

    The NorthStar Navigation Cube acts as a beacon, emitting a signal that
    guides Braava’s cleaning.

    Connecting to the NorthStar Navigation Cube
    • O
     nce Braava starts cleaning, it tries to establish a connection to the
    NorthStar Navigation Cube, indicated by one flashing blue light on the
    Navigation System Indicator. Once Braava has locked onto the Cube,
    Braava’s lights turn solid blue.
    • T
     he Navigation System Indicator also indicates Braava’s range. As Braava
    gets to the edge of its range (such as going out of the room or far from the
    NorthStar Navigation Cube) the number of lights will go down.
    • Braava may occasionally drive back toward the NorthStar Navigation
    Cube to confirm its position before continuing on its cleaning path.
    • Braava builds a new map each time it starts a new cleaning cycle,
    but retains its map if paused during the cleaning cycle.

    Cleaning without a NorthStar Navigation Cube

    • Because the Cube is just one part of the Navigation System, Braava can
    still clean without a NorthStar signal present, however the cleaning area
    will be much smaller and Braava will not be able to perform edge cleaning
    in each section.

    Cleaning with multiple NorthStar Navigation Cubes:
    (For Braava 380t ONLY):
    • B
     raava can use multiple NorthStar Cubes to clean up to 2,000 square
    feet when dry sweeping. Braava will move from one Cube to the next,
    extending the cleaning area with each Cube it encounters.
    • 
    Multiple cubes can be used in Mop mode, too, but Braava limits its wet
    cleaning area to 350 square feet to optimize for cloth wetness.

    Setting Up NorthStar Navigation Cubes
    Using Braava with one Cube
    • Place the Cube near the center of the area you want to clean and start
    Braava nearby.
    • Braava will clean the area around the Cube, and may extend into other rooms
    based on the cleaning mode and how far the NorthStar signal reaches.
    • If you have a choice of rooms, place the Cube in a larger room to
    maximize NorthStar coverage.
    • Once Braava has completed its run, you can move the Cube to clean a
    different part of your home.

    Using Braava with multiple Cubes (For Braava 380t ONLY):
    • Use one or more extra Cubes (sold separately) to expand how far Braava
    cleans in a single run.*
    • Place extra Cubes in rooms or areas next to the area covered by the first
    Cube. The Cubes should typically be between 20 and 25 feet from each
    other for the NorthStar coverage to overlap.
    • Braava will automatically clean from one Cube to another.
    *Cubes are pre-programmed to different NorthStar channels, indicated on the bottom of the Cube.
    Cubes with different channels must be used for multi-Cube cleaning.

    Operating Braava
    Put On a Cleaning Cloth
    1. 
    Set Braava on its end and remove the cleaning pad.

    2. Attach a dry or wet cloth to the Multi-Purpose cleaning pad.
    Lay the removable pad on an open cleaning cloth. Attach
    cloth by tucking it into the gripping strips on both sides.
    See the following page for the Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad.

    3. 
    Re-attach the cleaning pad. Magnets will help it snap back
    into place.

    Using the Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad
    (Sold separately for Braava 320)
    The Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad dispenses liquid as Braava mops to keep
    the cleaning cloth wet longer.

    Fill
    the reservoir



    1. O
     pen the fill cap by pulling and swiveling it
    to the side.

    2. Fill reservoir with water and replace fill cap,
    pressing it in securely so it does not leak.
    3. F
     ill the reservoir over a sink as a small
    amount of fluid can leak out when the fill
    cap is closed.
    4. 
    Dampen the blue Pro-Clean microfiber
    cloth and press onto the velcro strips.
    Do not use a dry cloth.

    TIP: F
     luid dispenses at different rates depending on floor type and solution
    used. The first time you mop, start with the cloth only slightly damp
    and then increase the starting cloth wetness if needed.
    NOTICE: To avoid the Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad leaving excess fluid
    on your floor, do not leave Braava unattended when mopping and
    remove from floor once Braava stops cleaning.

    When mopping is finished:
    • Empty any remaining fluid from the reservoir.
    • Leave the fill cap open to allow reservoir to dry completely.
    Do not store the pad on Braava if wet.
    • See page 22 for care instructions.

    Place the NorthStar ® Cube
    1. 
    Press the button on the
    back corner of the NorthStar
    Navigation Cube to turn it on.
    A blue light will flash on the
    opposite corner when turned
    on, and then go solid when
    Braava locks onto it.
    If you forget to turn the Cube
    on, Braava w
     ill send a signal
    to try to turn it on. If Braava is
    successful, the blue flashing
    light will appear on the Cube.

    2. P
     lace the NorthStar Navigation
    Cube on a table or counter top,
    pointing the blue light away
    from walls and toward the
    middle of the room.

    For Best Results
    • Place the NorthStar Navigation Cube where it has a clear view of the
    ceiling (for example, no cabinet or shelf directly above it).
    • Do not move the NorthStar Navigation Cube once Braava has started
    cleaning as it may impair Braava’s cleaning performance.
    • Do not put the NorthStar Navigation Cube on the floor as the cleaner
    may run into it and move it.

    Maintenance
    To keep your Braava in the best working condition, follow these maintenance steps.
    Cleaning and Storing
    • Use a dry cloth to wipe dust or dirt from Braava’s exterior. Do not rinse or
    submerge in water.
    • Use a damp cloth to wipe off dust and dirt on tires. Make sure that Braava
    is not plugged in and that the cloth is not dripping.
    • Place Braava on its end (handle side down) when charging or storing
    between uses.
    • For long term storage remove C batteries from the NorthStar Cube.
    Wheel Guard
    • As Braava cleans, debris may accumulate around the Wheel Guards.
    This helps keep Braava’s wheels moving freely.
    • Periodically check Braava’s wheels to see if debris has accumulated and
    remove as needed.
    • A small notch next to the wheel allows access with tweezers or scissors if
    needed to free the debris.

    NorthStar® Navigation Cube Troubleshooting
    Problem:

    Likely Cause

    What To Do

    Braava is not
    connecting to the
    Cube.

    Cube and robot
    position

    Turn on the Cube and place it on a raised surface. Point the
    blue light toward an open area of the room.
    Place Braava on the floor 6 to 8 feet away from the Cube,
    facing toward the Cube. Turn Braava on.
    With a dry cloth on Braava, press the Sweep button. Braava
    should drive toward the Cube and connect with the Cube
    within 30 seconds.
    If the blue Navigation Indicator lights turn solid blue on
    Braava, it has connected to the Cube. It is ok if the Cube
    continues flashing.

    Cube won’t turn on.

    Cube light is red.

    If Braava is not able to drive straight, see “Not Driving
    Properly” in the General Troubleshooting chart
    Replace with new C batteries and confirm batteries are
    facing the correct direction.

    C Batteries are
    dead or inserted
    incorrectly
    C Batteries are dead Replace with new C batteries.

    Cube turns off while Signal interference
    Braava is cleaning.

    Multiple Cubes are
    set up, but Braava
    is only using one
    Cube.

    Make sure Cube is not placed within 5 feet of a Plasma
    or LCD television and that the Cube is not in a room with
    fluorescent lighting turned on.

    Braava is out of
    range

    When Braava travels out of range, it is normal for the Cube
    to turn off. When Braava returns it will send a message to
    the Cube to turn it back on.

    Cube position

    Braava must be able to encounter a second Cube while
    cleaning to use it. Make sure the second Cube is not isolated
    in an area where Braava cannot get to it.

    Multiples Cubes are Cube channels
    set up, but Braava
    is over-cleaning
    many areas.

    Try placing Cubes with just 15 feet between them to help
    Braava connect, then move the Cubes farther apart for
    subsequent cleaning cycles. Do not move the Cubes while
    Braava is cleaning.
    Confirm the Cubes in use all have different channels. The
    channel number can be found on the bottom of each Cube.

    Not wicking fluid.

    Wick cap requires

    these caps are not sealed.
    Refer to Reservoir Pad maintenance for instructions to
    replace the wick cap.
