Before troubleshooting the error codes on a Hoover Quest 1000, we recommend turning the machine off before cleaning or servicing to reduce the risk of personal injury.
Here are the Hoover Quest 1000 error codes and the solutions:
- E001 – Ground detection failure: The Hoover Quest 1000 robot’s ground sensor is covered with dirt or the robot is stuck at a stairway. Wipe the ground detection sensor clean with a dry microfiber cloth or move the robot to a different location.
- E002 – Brush roll error: The Hoover Quest 1000 robot’s brush roll is not spinning properly. Clean the brush roll off of any dirt, lint, or hair.
- E003 – Battery low error: The Hoover Quest 1000 robot’s battery is too low and unable to return to the docking station for auto recharge. Manually place the Hoover Quest 1000 on the docking station and charge.

To avoid having to deal with the error codes, it’s a good idea to clean the Hoover Quest 1000 robot’s parts frequently. In most cases, the error codes are caused by hair, dust, and debris stuck to the robot’s parts. Additionally, the Hoover Quest 1000 may behave abnormally. Here’s how to troubleshoot the issue:
- Hoover Quest 1000 keeps returning to its base station during cleaning cycles – This may indicate the robot is working in a high glare environment or dark floors, or the ground detection sensor is covered with dirt. Move the robot to a different location and wipe the ground detection sensor with a clean dry microfiber cloth.
- Hoover Quest 1000 doesn’t turn ON – If the Hoover Quest 1000 does not turn on, then either the power button on the side of the robot is OFF or the battery is completely drained. Simply charge the robot to fix this issue.
- Hoover Quest 1000 doesn’t return to its charging base – If the Hoover Quest 1000 does not return to its charging base, then either the docking station is not plugged in or the robot is unable to detect its docking station due to an unclear path. Simply plug the docking station, remove any obstacles in its path, or manually dock the robot.
- Hoover Quest 1000 halts after a short period – If the Hoover Quest 1000 halts after a short period, then the battery is too low and unable to return to the docking station for auto recharge. Manually place the robot on the docking station and charge.
