Remove the Yellow connectors on the end of the brushes and clean around the pin well. If there is too much there, the roomba thinks there is something stuck and goes into clear mode (as if there is a chord stuck).

SOURCE: no suction on Roomba 560
Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module. If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.

Perhaps its a wheel drop sensor instead of a cliff sensor. Clean the caster, caster axle, caster motion sensor, remove and vacuum or blow the dirt from the left and right wheel assemblies.

SOURCE: what is the wattage onroomba 560
The power supply isn't a transformer, its a switching power supply. The power supply is different for different locations, but you should not plug a 110V only power supply into a 220v source or vice-versa. You should contact iRobot if you wish to obtain the correct power supply for another location or to determine if they have an autosensing model that can sense and adapt to either 110v or 220v. You can also use a step down transformer to convert from 220v to 110v. The charger should be using 20W or less, but it will be pulling the current in narrow surges from the peaks of the voltage wave (aka a high 3rd harmomic current) and you will need to use a 40W or larger transformer to avoid unexpectedly overheating the transformer core.
