What do I do if Lomi is making lots of noise?

Lomi is a quiet machine, however, while running, it will make some minimal noises. When bigger material or harder bioplastic is added to a Lomi cycle, there may be an occasional grinding noise. If there is a loud constant grinding noise, something is likely stuck.

Here's what to do:

  • Turn Lomi off (press and hold the main button on Lomi for ~10 seconds)
  • Allow Lomi to cool for 30 minutes
  • Remove the obstruction
  • If possible, add more organic waste when you restart it to ensure a smoother cycle

If you often add coffee grounds or eggshells, a higher-pitched "creaking" noise might occur — don't worry! This noise is simply the coffee grounds, eggshell, or other hardened material that's gotten stuck in a certain spot in the bucket. 
To prevent this noise, or others, from recurring, please rinse your bucket well after you've added coffee grounds or other small hard material.
