SOURCE: light houses aren't turning on.

Make sure your virtual wall batteries are fresh-- even if you're sure they are, try removing and replacing them just to reset the virtual wall.

Then reset your Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for about fifteen seconds. Release them and wait for the tune.

Recharge the Roomba and then try to run it. The virtual walls ought to respond at that point. If they don't, you might find that calling customer support may help.

SOURCE: roomba 540 brushes are clean,

I think I can guess what the problem is - exactly the problem I made with my roomba when it was new: I didn't realise that the bearing came off the end. Is the end of your brush assembly yellow? If so, it pulls off. I'm going to take a flier and guess that you didn't know that, and your bearing is jammed up with hair. This is what the bearings look like:

Make sure they spin freely!

My iRobot Roomba 780 just won't start moving to do the cleaning. When I press the CLEAN button it moves back from the dock, turns 180?, and then moves forward about an inch and makes the uh-oh sound...


make sure all virtual wall lighthouses are turned off. Your Roomba may be getting a signal to not proceed if the lighthouses are turned ON and facing the Roomba

Roomba is only operating for about 10 minutes at a time and then the red light comes on and it stops


Hello. Most likely, your rechargeable battery is on it's last legs and needs to be replaced. Joe

My roomba 530 runs in a circle and does not move forward. After 2 minutes it stops with 11 beeps and a flashing red light to the left of the power button. It has no clicking noise. Does anyone know what is...


Hey'
This means Roomba is not registering obstacles. Roomba may be stuck in one place.
Roomba may be in extremely large room, try setting up virtual walls to create smaller area.
If Roomba is not in a large room, tap Roomba's bumper to confirm it is properly working.


Hope this helps

Turns in circles, acts like it hits a virtual wall then stops


Reboot is probably not your solution. Your Roomba will react to invisible signals or 'interference' from other electrical appliances as well as the invisible wall boxes. You can clearly see how this happens when a Roomba gets near your computer or other device that is on. Also, the Roomba will go in circles when the dirt chamber is full or it thinks it's full. Try a thorough clean of all major parts including the brushes. Sometimes this activity will occur when the brushes get snarled on thread or carpet fibers.

I don't know how to disassembly virtual wall of irobot roomba


To change the batteries you simply remove the door on the underside of the unit. It requires you to remove a single philips screw.

My Roomba 560 does not automatically dock as advertised either..


You may not believe this, but the new 500 series lighthouse virtual walls have both infrared and radio frequency communication. How they work and associate with the Roomba is pretty complicated. The best posting I've ever seen about how they work is here:
http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11048

Check out that link to understand how the communication works.

If your Roomba is contained by the virtual walls, then you can assume the IR sensor on your Roomba us good....you should test that though. Then you might have to replace the "home base" which could have a bad IR transponder . New ones can be found for reasonable price at www.RoboticVacParts.com or you could order straight from iRobot for twice the price.

If the Roomba is not contained by the virtual walls, then the IR sensor on the Roomba is likely bad and you'll need to change the bumper on your Roomba. Again ....parts are available through ebay, or www.RoboticVacParts.com. Follow this link if you need it.
