To replace the bumper on bObsweep Pethair Plus, you’ll need a Phillips head screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver and a new bumper.
Before starting any repair on Bob, turn his side power switch OFF and remove his dustbin.
Then, flip Bob over onto a flat surface and remove his main brush using the flat head screwdriver.
Keep all removed screws and parts safely aside, as they may be needed for later reassembly.
Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the 6 screws on Bob’s underside that hold him together.
One screw on each side of the front wheel. One screw to the right of the main brush motor.
One screw on each side of the dustbin. The final screw is in the brush compartment.
Bob’s cover is no longer secured, so hold the top and bottom together as you carefully flip him back onto his wheels.
Grip Bob’s cover from the back and lift up to expose the mainboard.
Slide the power inlet down and tuck it somewhere safe to avoid compressing its wires.
To detach Bob’s cover completely, disconnect 4 circuit plugs:
Two at the lower edge of the mainboard, near the wheels.
And two more at the top edge, near the bumper.
Bob’s cover is now completely detached and can be set aside for the rest of the repair.
Flip the cover over onto a flat surface and you’re ready to remove the bumper.
First, remove the 2 springs on either side of Bob’s screen and keep them aside for later reassembly.
Remove the 4 screws securing the bumper to Bob’s cover, then lift the bumper to detach.
It will separate into three pieces: a large exterior piece, a small wired piece, and a plastic strip.
To install your new bumper, lay down the large exterior piece first. Place the cover on top so the screw posts on the exterior piece protrude through the holes on the cover.
You may need to lift the bumper slightly as you lay down the final wired piece, the obstacle sensors.
Make sure it lines up with the screw posts on the interior of the cover, and that no wires are compressed.
Next, clip the plastic strip to the front of the exterior piece so it fits flat in the opening.
Hold everything together as you re-install all 4 screws securing the bumper to the cover.
Finally, replace the 2 springs on Bob’s cover.
The curved edge hooks into a small slot on the bumper, while the straight edge hooks under a screw on the inside of Bob’s cover.
Now you’re ready to reconnect Bob’s cover.
Reattach all 4 circuit plugs connecting Bob’s cover to the mainboard.
2 connect to the top edge of the mainboard, and 2 more that connect to the bottom edge.
Remember to slide the power inlet back into its space on Bob’s cover.
Align the cover’s edges precisely. Then, flip Bob over onto a flat surface.
Ensure that no wires are compressed in the main brush compartment or visible at the edges of the bumper.
If so, take a step back and lift the cover to tuck the wires into the appropriate spaces.
Once the wires are all safely tucked away and Bob’s cover is aligned properly, reinstall all 6 screws previously removed from Bob’s underside.
Install the main brush and dustbin before your next use and Bob is completely re-assembled.
Turn the side power switch back on and congratulations! You’ve just replaced Bob’s bumper. Happy Cleaning!

Transcript from the video:
Today we are at Olivia’s Garden in New Gloucester, ME to demonstrate how to use BioStrate Felt as a growing medium for hydroponically grown microgreens, salad greens and wheatgrass. BioStrate Felt is made from a biopolymer and a natural fiber and is manufactured here in Maine. It is lightweight and readily absorbs water to create a moist environment for seed germination.
BioStrate Felt comes in 10”x20” sheets and rolls of Felt that can be cut to custom widths. Today we’ll be using 4”x20” strips which we’ll place side by side in the 9” wide gutters. Growers using NFT systems have had best results when space is left for water to flow freely on either side of the medium. BioStrate Felt doesn’t require any kind of pre-treatment. It needs only to be moistened which you can do as a misting or in a water bath. Lay the growing medium out and sprinkle seeds to your desired density. Depending on your location, type of seeds and set-up, you may place these strips in a dark warm location for 48 hours or until germination occurs. Other growers place it directly in the growing area and seed and water there.
BioStrate Felt performs best when it is not overwatered. The exact amount of water will depend on your growing environment. However, it is important to never let the water get higher than the felt. Here is a photo that illustrates this. If water is pooling on the medium, you are watering too much. You might be surprised at how little water BioStrate Felt needs. We were told by one hydroponic grower that a crop of microgreens growing on our medium did not receive water for an entire weekend and was just fine. While we don’t recommend taking such a chance with your baby greens, this story does illustrate that in a humid environment, our product requires less water than you might think.
BioStrate Felt is designed for one time usage. Once the crop is harvested, dispose of the medium. Our product meets ASTM D6400 and is intended to be composted in a commercial composting facility. These do not exist in many communities. Visit www.findacomposter.com to see if such a facility exists in your community. BioStrate Felt is not suitable for backyard composting.
It is very suitable, though, for growing microgreens, salad greens and wheatgrass! If you are a commercial grower and would like to learn more, contact us via phone or e-mail.
