Question about Vacuums
The beep code means that it cannot verify all of its wheels are on the floor. Turn the unit upside down and make sure there is nothing stuck to the wheels or sticking between the wheels and chassis

Mine used to buck and spin and then stop. Don't know if this will work, but it did for me. Before turning my Roomba on, I hold it on the floor and move it back and forth a few times so that the wheels spin. This seems to break up the initial resistance in the wheels and it solved my problem. Good luck.

It means you need to clean the sensors. I have had this problem every now and then. There are 4 plastic clear sensors that you can clearly see when you put roomba upside down.
I have found the best and most effective way to clean them is with a dust wipe. You push the dust wipe in with a cotton swab or even a pen, and rub it around the face of the sensors cleaning the dust off, and it will work fine again.
The reason you need to use a dust wipe like a Swiffer brand is that it is very effective and will pick up all the dust. You may not see the dust and you will keep getting that red flashing error though the sensor may look clean to you.
I just had that problem, and after I used the dust cloth, it's working fine again. Good luck.

Yes, this is known issue and if your bumper moves freely, you might be facing a sensor fault caused by poor quality of components.
Here is a guide to fix it
