Question about iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum

1 Answer

My irobot goes backwards a short way, stops, turn, goes backwards some more, repeats the process over and over until it gets stuck. No beeps, no talking.

Starts out backwards, then circles ,then stops. and repeats


Remove all three wheels and make sure they're clean. Tap the bumper with your hand, and maybe blow out behind it with compressed air. If the problem continues, call us-- it's in the wheel motors, most likely. 1-877-855-8593.

Running backwards in circles.


If your Roomba's speaker isn't working, you need a new Roomba regardless. Give a call to customer support (877-855-8593) and they'll help you out.

Irobot scooba 5800 spins quickly then sets off backwards


Remove and clean all of the wheels, and make sure the cliff sensors under the bumper are clean. Tap the bumper with your hand-- really smack it a couple of times. It sounds like the Scooba believes it's stuck against an obstacle.

Roomba going backwards


I had the same kind of problem with my model 400 today...after starting it and having it go in a circle for 30 seconds or so it would finally run into something and then back up a few inches, turn, then go forward a few inches, then back up a few inches, turn, then go forward a few inches, etc., etc.. I tried cleaning off the four pairs of sensors under the bumper and blowing out various things underneath (by mouth since I didn't have any canned compressed air). It didn't really help. It then occurred to me that I had a leaf blower! I put the Roomba upside down on the grass, put the leaf blower on high, and blew at it from all directions and up close. More dust came out than I thought would. It has been running normally now for the last 45 minutes.
