HOW THE LITTERMAID SELF-CLEANING LITTER BOX WORKS
Cat enters the unit; once he/she leaves, the Sensors are triggered, setting the timer for the cleaning cycle. (Sensors need to be blocked for at least 5 seconds.) Important: Unit will not start a cleaning cycle while cat is in the Box. After 10 minutes, the cleaning cycle starts and the Rake scoops out waste clumps. If the cat re-enters and leaves the Litter Box before the initial 10 minutes have elapsed, the timer will automatically reset and delay the beginning of the cleaning cycle for an additional 10 minutes. Note: Rake will stop and reverse if the safety bar touches any object that has gotten behind the Rake while it is returning to its home position. Rake opens Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover and deposits clumps into the Waste Receptacle. Sealed Disposable Waste Receptacle allows for safe and easy disposal of waste when full. 1 2

Setup Instructions
No Tools Required for Setup Unpack the pieces of the unit: LitterMaid Litter Box, AC Adapter (packed in styrofoam), Disposable Waste Receptacles, Carbon Filters, LitterMaid Triple-Action Tool, Use and Care Book and Cleaning Brush (packed with Disposable Waste Receptacles), plus any optional items including the Paw-Cleaning Ramp, Cat-Privacy Tent, and Litter Box Carpet. Cut and remove the restraints on each end of the Rake, then peel off the protective tape on the Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover and the Battery Compartment. Remove the Styrofoam on top of the Rake. Place a Disposable Waste Receptacle under the Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover. Make sure that the front of the Waste Receptacle is under the five tabs (Fig. 1). There should be no gap between the unit and the Waste Receptacle. Attach the Waste Receptacle Lid by inserting the pushtabs into the round holes (Fig. 2).

Optional Items

Litter Box Carpet Place the assembled unit on the Carpet. Paw-Cleaning Ramp The Paw-Cleaning Ramp has two pivot pins that snap into holes on the sides of the Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover. Position the Paw-Cleaning Ramp with carpetside facing up. Point the pivot pins toward the Disposable Waste Receptacle end of the unit. Lift the Paw-Cleaning Ramp and insert one of the pivot pins into one of the holes. Slightly stretch the other pivot pin to reach the other hole, then insert (Fig. 5).

Helpful Information
If you need to acclimate your cat to the LitterMaid Litter Box, refer to "Acclimating Your Cat" in this Use and Care Book (p.5). If your unit is not working properly, refer to "Troubleshooting" in this Use and Care Book (p.6). Batteries (We recommend using batteries only as a back-up): Remove the pull-on tabs on the edge of the Battery Compartment to open it. Remove the battery door. Follow the diagram in the compartment to install 8 "D" cell batteries. (Batteries not included.) Just as your alarm clock continues to run on batteries if there is a power failure, the LitterMaid Litter Box will continue to operate as long as batteries are installed. Sensors: Sensors (located on interior side panels) must be clean at all times. Wipe Sensors with a soft, dry cloth to keep them dust free.
Peel off the paper strip on the Carbon Filter to expose the adhesive. Place filter adhesive-side down in the diamond-shaped insert in the center of the Waste Receptacle Lid (Fig. 3). Close the Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover. Use only premium clumping litter. Do not use non-clumping litter, crystal or pearl-like litters. Fill the LitterMaid Litter Box to just below the "Full Line". Do not overfill the unit or it will not operate properly. Use the fill line on the LitterMaid Triple-Action Tool to check that the litter is at the correct level in the center of the unit (Fig. 4).

Fig. 4

Remove the AC Adapter from where it is packed in the styrofoam and plug it into the unit. Then plug the cord into a standard electrical wall outlet. Turn the On/Off Switch to "on" and a red light will appear at the top of the unit. The Rake will automatically run through its first cleaning cycle and smooth out the litter.

The LitterMaid Triple-Action Tool This handy 3-way tool helps you measure the level of litter (Fig. 6a), assists in cleaning the Rake (Fig. 6b), and aids in the removal of small waste particles (Fig. 6c).

ACCLIMATING YOUR CAT
If your cat needs to acclimate to the new LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box, follow these instructions. Place the LitterMaid unit next to your old litter box. Set it to run automatically by turning the On/Off Switch to "on". Do not clean out the old litter box. (Cats prefer to use a clean box, and the LitterMaid Litter Box will always be clean.) If your cat is shy, do not operate the LitterMaid Litter Box automatically for 2 to 3 days. (Turn the On/Off Switch to "off.") Manually activate the LitterMaid Litter Box 2 to 3 times a day for the first 2 to 3 days to let your cat get used to going into the LitterMaid Litter Box before you set it to clean automatically. As soon as your cat is acclimated to the LitterMaid Litter Box, set it to clean automatically. Turn On/Off Switch to "on", and remove the old litter box. Note: Do not place your LitterMaid Litter Box in a wet environment or in direct sunlight.

TROUBLESHOOTING

A. Rake continues to go through cleaning cycles. Probable Causes: Too much litter in the litter box is causing excess litter to collect behind the Rake, preventing it from returning to home position. If the Rake cannot move an obstacle during the cleaning cycle, the unit will go through a cleaning cycle up to five times in an attempt to clear the obstacle. If unsuccessful, the Rake will return to its home position, and the red light will blink slowly (approximately every second), indicating that the Rake has encountered an obstacle it cannot move. 1. Turn the On/Off Switch to "off." 2. Check to make sure litter in Tray is just below the "full line". Use the LitterMaid Triple-Action Tool to measure the level of the litter in the center of the unit. Full Line will not be visible if Tray is overfilled. 5
3. Remove excess litter and smooth out litter from front to back using the LitterMaid Tool. 4. Turn the On/Off Switch to on. 5. The Rake will run through a complete cleaning cycle. When cycle is finished, the unit is ready for use. There is an obstacle in front of the Rake (most often a clump of litter stuck to the bottom of the Litter Tray or too much litter in the Tray.) If the Rake cannot move an obstacle during the cleaning cycle, the unit will go through a cleaning cycle up to five times in an attempt to clear the obstacle. If unsuccessful, the Rake will return to its home position, and the red light will blink slowly (approximately every second), indicating that the Rake has encountered an obstacle it cannot move. 1. Turn the On/Off Switch to off. 2. Clear the obstacle (refer to E). 3. Check to make sure litter in Tray is just below the "full line." Use the LitterMaid Triple-Action Tool to measure the level of litter in the center of the unit. Full Line will not be visible if Tray is overfilled. 4. Remove excess litter and smooth out litter from front to back using the LitterMaid Tool. 5. Turn the On/Off Switch to "on." 6. The Rake will run through a complete cleaning cycle. When cycle is finished, the unit is ready for use. B. Unit does not operate 10 minutes after cat leaves. Probable Cause: Dusty Sensors (Sensors need to be covered for 5 seconds to activate.) 1. Wipe each Sensor with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust. 2. Turn the On/Off Switch to "off." 3. Turn the On/Off Switch to "on." 4. Unit will run through a cleaning cycle. C. Unit does not completely clean litter box. Probable Cause: Low-quality clumping litter. 1. Do not use non-clumping, crystal or pearl-like litter. 2. Use only premium clumping litter. D. Unit does not operate when On/Off Switch is switched on. Probable Causes: Faulty or non-activated outlet Check outlet Power outage Switch to battery power Incorrectly installed or dead batteries. (Batteries should only be used as backup.) 1. Turn On/Off Switch to "off". 2. Open Battery Compartment; check to see that batteries are correctly installed. 3. Turn On/Off Switch to "on". The unit should perform a whole cleaning cycle. 4. If unit does not operate, replace batteries with fresh ones and try again. 5. If unit does not operate with fresh batteries, try it with the AC Adapter. 6. Red light should come on. If it does not, there is a problem with the AC Adapter or batteries. 6

Page 8

AC Adapter does not work Turn On/Off Switch to "off" and check the following: 1. The AC Adapter plug is inserted fully into the input jack. 2. The power outlet is operating. (You may wish to double-check by plugging unit into another outlet). 3. Wait a few seconds and turn unit on again. Red light should come on and the unit should perform a complete cleaning cycle. 4. If unit still does not operate, turn On/Off Switch to "off" and unplug the AC Adapter. 5. Operate the unit on battery power only. E. Waste clumps adhere to the surface of the Litter Tray. Probable Cause: Soiled Litter Tray surface (We recommend wearing rubber or latex gloves when handling waste.) 1. Remove clumps from surface with a damp cloth. 2. Remove Litter Tray (refer to "Care and Cleaning" in this Use and Care Book), clean with mild detergent, rinse and dry. 3. Spray Litter Tray surface with nonstick cooking spray or silicone spray, and wipe with a soft, dry cloth. This will help to prevent waste clumps from adhering to the surface of the Tray. F. Light fails to come on when On/Off Switch is turned on. Probable Cause: Power outage or batteries are incorrectly installed. 1. Turn On/Off Switch to off then back to on. 2. Make sure there is power to the unit and/or batteries are correctly installed. G. Light blinks slowly and continuously. Probable Cause: Rake has encountered an obstacle it cannot remove. If the Rake cannot move an obstacle during the cleaning cycle, the unit will go through a cleaning cycle up to five times in an attempt to clear the obstacle. If unsuccessful, the Rake will return to its home position, and the red light will blink slowly (approximately every second), indicating that the Rake has encountered an obstacle it cannot move. 1. Turn the On/Off Switch to off. 2. Use the LitterMaid Triple-Action Tool to remove the obstacle. 3. Make sure that the Rake teeth are clean and free of litter. Use the LitterMaid Tool to clean Rake teeth. 4. Turn On/Off Switch to on. H. Light blinks quickly. Probable Cause: Batteries need replacing. Light will continue to blink until batteries are removed or until they are completely dead. I. Light is off. Probable Cause: No A/C power is reaching the unit or the batteries are dead. See "D" in this Troubleshooting section. If you cant solve the problem using this Troubleshooting section, more help is available by calling Customer Service at 1-800-LIT-MAID (548-6243). 7

Care and Cleaning

Sensor Covers
The two sensors located on the interior side panels are protected by sensor covers that need to be kept dust free. After changing or adding litter, always wipe each Sensor with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust (Fig. 7).

Fig. 7

Litter Tray
Use only premium clumping litter. Lesser quality litters will impair performance. To empty and clean Litter Tray: Check to make sure Rake is in home position. Turn the On/Off Switch to the "off" position. Unplug unit and remove batteries to prevent accidental activation of the unit. Lift latches on both sides of unit and lift up by side panel handles (Fig. 8a). This will separate the tray from the Main Housing (Fig. 8b).
Tray Main Housing Fig. 8a Fig. 8a
Dispose of the used litter. To ensure proper disposal of litter, follow manufacturer's instructions on litter package. Wipe the Litter Tray with a damp cloth. If further cleaning is necessary, the Litter Tray can be fully immersed in water and washed with a mild detergent. Important: Do not soak or immerse the Main Housing in water. Dry the unit completely before reassembling. Before reassembling, spray Litter Tray surface with nonstick cooking spray or silicone spray, and wipe with a soft, dry cloth. This will help to prevent waste clumps from adhering to the surface of the Tray. To reassemble: Place the Litter Tray on a flat surface. Carefully lower the Main Housing onto the Litter Tray. Engage the two locks by pressing the lower part of each latch firmly against tabs on Litter Tray until a click is heard to indicate that both sections are locked into place.

Page 10

Using only premium clumping litter refill Litter Tray to just below the "full line". Plug in the AC power Adapter and replace batteries. Turn the On/Off Switch to "on" to reactivate automatic operation.
Rake Removal, Cleaning & Reinstallation
Removing the Rake: The Rake can be removed for easy cleaning. We recommend wearing rubber or latex gloves when handling the soiled Rake. Flip open the Disposable Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover. Turn On/Off Switch to "off ", then back to "on". Rake will automatically begin a cleaning cycle. As Rake climbs up incline near the Disposable Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover, Turn the On/Off switch to "off". Unplug the AC Adapter, and if batteries are installed, remove batteries. Place fingers on underside of the Rake and gently pull the Rake up and out toward Disposable Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover. Notches on Rake bar detach from screws on the rake assembly housing (Fig. 12). If Rake does not come free, use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen screws on underside of the Rake assembly. Loosen no more than 1/8 of a turn. Gently pull Rake up and out (Fig.12). Clean Rake with a soft cloth using warm water and a mild detergent. Do not use scouring pads or harsh or abrasive chemicals. Spray Rake lightly with nonstick cooking spray or a silicone spray before reinstalling. Screws

Paw-Cleaning Ramp: (Optional item)
Remove mat by gently pulling on the fabric strip provided (Fig. 9). The mat is held in place by 5 tabs and will remove easily. Just remove and clean carpet by using a vacuum cleaner. To return it to its original position, reinsert carpet under the tabs. It is not necessary to remove the plastic ramp to clean the mat. Note: Should small stains occur, moisten a sponge with a mild detergent and cold water; wipe to clean. Do not use soaps or chemical cleaners as they may be harmful to your cat. Caution: Do not place carpet in washer or dryer. Do not vacuum carpet when it is wet.

Fig. 9

Removing Disposable Waste Receptacle
We recommend avoiding contact with waste material. Wear rubber or latex gloves when handling used Disposable Waste Receptacle. Depress the two pushtabs in the Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover (Fig. 10). (Detach the Disposable Waste Receptacle Lid from the Waste Receptacle Compartment Cover.) Lift the Compartment Cover, exposing the closed Disposable Waste Receptacle assembly. Press in on four corners of lid to secure lid to the Waste Receptacle, pull the Disposable Waste Receptacle edge free from the tabs holding it in place, lift out and dispose (Fig. 11).

ACCLIMATING YOUR CAT HOW THE LITTERMAID SELF-CLEANING LITTER BOX WORKS:
s s s s Cat enters the unit, triggering the sensor, setting the timer for the cleaning cycle. After 10 minutes, the raking cycle begins and scoops out clumps. Rake opens lid and deposits clumps into waste receptacle. Seated waste receptacle allows for safe and easy disposal of waste when full. If your cat needs to acclimate to the new LitterMaid Self-Cleaning litter box, follow these instructions: 1. Place the LitterMaid unit next to your old litter box. 2. Set it to run automatically. 3. Do not clean out the old litter box. (Cats prefer to use a clean box and the LitterMaid litter box will always be clean.) If your cat is shy then do not operate the LitterMaid litter box automatically for 2-3 days. Manually activate the LitterMaid litter box 2-3 times a day for the first 2 to 3 days to let your cat get used to going in the LitterMaid litter box before you set it to clean automatically. 4. As soon as your cat is acclimated to the LitterMaid litter box, set it to clean automatically and remove the old litter box. Note: Do not place the LitterMaid litter box product in a wet environment or in direct sunlight.

CARE AND CLEANING

SENSOR COVERS: After changing or adding litter, always wipe each sensor cover with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust. The two sensors located on the interior side panels (Fig. 5) are protected by sensor covers that need to be kept dust-free. PAW CLEANING RAMP (Optional): 1. Remove the paw cleaning ramp by gently pulling on the fabric strip provided. 2. Clean by using a vacuum cleaner. 3. To return it to its original position, slide the fabric under the tabs. It is not necessary to remove the plastic ramp to clean the mat Do not use soaps or chemical cleaners, as they may be harmful to your cat. LITTER BOX: Use ONLY premium-quality clumping litter. Other litter quality will impair performance. Litter tray can be easily detached from unit for trouble-free complete cleaning and refilling. To empty and refill litter tray: 1. Check to make sure rake is in home position (close to the battery box). 2. Slide the On/Off switch to the Off position. 3. Unplug and remove batteries to prevent accidental activation of unit while it is being cleaned. 4. Pull out the lower part of the latches on both sides of unit (Fig. 6) and, using the handles on the top assembly, lift up. This will separate the tray from the main housing (Fig. 7). 5. Dispose of the clumping litter and wipe the tray with a damp cloth. If further cleaning is necessary, the litter tray can be fully immersed in water and washed with a mild detergent. To ensure proper disposal of clumping litter, follow manufacturers instructions on litter package. IMPORTANT: Do not soak or immerse the main housing in water.

ALARMS: Battery operated: Fast blinking red light indicates batteries require replacement. Light will continue to blink until batteries are removed or completely dead. If the rake cannot move an obstacle during the cleaning cycle, the unit will rake up to five times in an attempt to clear the obstacle. If unsuccessful, the rake will return to its home position, and the red light will blink slowly (approximately every second) indicating that the rake has encountered an obstacle it cannot move. If this happens, remove the obstacle, then slide the switch to the Off position for 5 seconds and back to the On position. The rake will then undergo a complete cleaning cycle.
