Question about Karcher RC3000 Bagless Robotic Vacuum

1 Answer

Get more control

Hi all, i saw an unused connector inside the robot, called 9x or 6x. there are 4 pins, it looks like a kind of serial connector (gnd, TD, RD, VCC). Any body knows what is it for and if we can get control of the robot throught it via an API? This could be usefull to have a kind of scheduler, remote control or, via an external computer a graphical representation of the cleaning with "real" virtual walls.

Wiring diagram

First check the cord to make sure you have continunity throw both leads, check them at the cord reel, there are 2 wires hooked up to it, if not then the cord is bad. Check the swith also, the next cause would be the speen control mounted on the motor, part #04416342, sells for around $85. If your motor checks ok, then it most likely the speed control, they go out quite often...Thank you

My roomba no longer works on my area rug, it starts backing up continuously once it encounters the rug.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

iRobot Roomba Vacuuming Robots and the iRobot Dirt Dog Workshop Robot are equipped with four infrared Cliff Sensors that prevent robots from falling off stairs or ledges. The Cliff Sensors are located along the inside of the bumper. If the Sensors become obstructed by dust or debris, the infrared signal is weakened. Regularly inspect and clean the Sensors. Use compressed air for best cleaning results.

I have changed brushes, everything on my robot and he still stops every few minutes and says change brushes. any help?

if you still have warranty, call iRobot.
if not, look for how to clean the Cleaning Head Module CHM
this is very simple to do but remember you'll need Lithium Grease to complete the job.
Good luck

Generic works fine, and that charger does too. If your charge light and dock light are on then you'll be okay.
