Q: Powerboat only runs about 40 to 45 minutes
A: Is the Samsung Powerbot being used on max mode most of the time? The amount of time the Powerbot can clean depends on the mode it’s on, and the type of surface it’s cleaning. On max mode it’ll last about 30 minutes, on normal 60 minutes, and on quiet mode it’s capable of lasting up to 90 minutes. If you’re using quiet mode, and running the bot on a smooth surface, then I would consider replacing the battery with the manufacturer.
Q: We have large area rugs in 3 rooms on top of laminate floors and have problems with the black in our rugs, The roomba will not work on the black in our home. The black causes errors to occur. Will this happen with the powerbot?
A: Unfortunately, this seems to be an issue with many robotic vacuums. It’s a sensor glitch caused by the color because the robot believes that it’s about to go over a cliff. The Samsung Powerbot has been reported to experience the same sensor issues with the color black.
Q: Does it get caught u on wires or other stufff
A: The Samsung Powerbot is designed to handle the issues wires may cause. It has really large wheels that help it a great deal when handling wires, excellent navigation, and coverage. That being said, it’s not a perfect thing, and every now, and again it may still get caught in a wire. It's good to make sure and remove any wire that may have a sharp end to it to avoid dragging an object on flooring, such as hardwood.
Q: my bot has a hard time on a gray and black area rug. it seems it's sensitivity to contrasting colors is amped up too high. is there any way to get it to trick it out so it would vac the rug?

I get an E1 warning after turning it on and that means the wheel is not turning. I took it completely apart and there was nothing wound around the wheel. What else could it be?
