If there's no message its probably a sensor malfunctioning. It might be a cliff sensor, the bump switch, or wheel-drop (left, right, or caster). Try cleaning the sensors and vacuuming things out as a first step.

SOURCE: 560 backs out of charging base then only turns in right circles

Its probably 9 beeps rather than ten... its likely to be a sensor malfunctioning. It might be a cliff sensor, the bump switch, or wheel-drop (left, right, or caster). Try cleaning the sensors and vacuuming things out as a first step.

Battery problem.If the battery is absolutely new,still it can be battery problem.But if the battery is old then replace the battery.To confirm the battery fault check the voltage of battery with meter.It should show exact volt.At least 12 volt.If the battery gets warm then the charging circuit is working but if not then the charging circuit is not working.failure is due to a failure with U2/U4 in the charging circuit. --------- For more troubleshooting,if you require service manual for your roomba model,please click on this link directly:--- http://choisirsonaspirateur.info/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Roomba-500-Series-Service-Manual.pdf ------------

My roomba irobot 700 series is completely dead after being disconnected for several weeks?


I noticed that when I started disconnecting my charger after it had recharged my Roomba, that it didn't run as long later. So I think that the Roomba needs to be sitting on the charger with the charger plugged in. I would put your's on the charger for two days and see if that does the trick.
How mechanically minded are you? Can you get a voltmeter and check what charge is coming out of your charger now? Can you access the battery and use a voltmeter to check what charge it has?

My roomba 560 approaches the dock and attempts to dock. However, it never seems to align correctly and backs out. This is a continuous process. It simply will not dock at all. Any suggestions?


Check the connector on your ROOMBA, there is a switch that open the ground when you connect the charger direct to the ROOMBA and a lot of times it get stock and remain open. Using a small screwdriver press the metal plates to force to close.

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

This is a roomba 560. First started acting crazy, ''even ''singing'' on the base. No no power at all, no clean botton light at all, the base turns green when you put it in there like charging ... The...


Something is blocking the battery current and preventing the Roomba from running.

Low voltage contacts can be blocked by thin films formed by condensible organic outgassing in the home environmental (That's the yellowy haze that slowly builds up on the wall paint.)

Try cleaning the battery contacts with a little rubbing alcohol or contact cleaner on a foam swab, or a bit of paper towel. Take a litle time, it doesn't always dissolve instantly. (Don't use a pink pencil eraser, it would scrub off the plating that prevents corrosion) Clean both contacts on the battery pack and both of the contacts in the Roomba. Make sure the battery is oriented correctly when you put it back in.

If that doesn't help, the battery itself can be defective such that it has a very high internal resistance and can only charge and discharge very slowly. It can be fully charged, and unable to deliver that charge at a pace that allows the Roomba to operate. Sometimes its possible to rehabilitate such a battery by conditioning it over several charge and discharge cycles, and sometimes its ineffective. Since thr Roomba won't run you'd have to use a something like a 20 to 50 ohm power resistor to drain the pack to 10v before charging it.

Of course as your description suggests, its also possible the processor has a fault and you need to buy a new one.

Reset the Roomba by removing it from the charger, then holding "spot" and "dock" for about twelve seconds. When you let go, the unit will play an ascending series of notes. Then recharge it overnight. If the run time is still short, give Customer Support a call-- be sure to have the Roomba with you when you do.

Roomba 4200 Scheduler


The best for the battery if (NiMH). Discharge completly, than charge full (charge more even the charger indicates full charge)

Clean every part, maybe a hair slow down the wheels and thats why need more power.

Here some tip from the web:


With proper care, one iRobot Roomba battery can last for hundreds of cleaning cycles before you need to replace it. Here are some things you can do to extend Roomba's battery life and keep Roomba cleaning at peak performance:



Use your Roomba frequently. Your Roomba is powered by a rechargeable nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery, which lasts the longest when you use it regularly.



Keep the brushes clean. If the brushes and brush axles get clogged with hair and other debris, your Roomba will strain to spin them, using more battery power than normal. In extreme cases, the battery can even be damaged. See How to remove and clean Roomba's brushes



Keep your Roomba plugged in when not in use. If you have a Home Base®, keep your Roomba docked in the Home Base and plugged into the charging brick. If you don’t have a Home Base, keep your Roomba plugged into the APS Fast Charger.



Make sure you are charging your Roomba correctly. When your Roomba is plugged in correctly, the solid green light should be illuminated on the charger or on the Home Base.



Plug your Roomba in as soon as possible after using Max Mode. Leaving your Roomba unplugged for more than 24 hours can damage the battery.



Place your Roomba and the Home Base on a smooth, hard surface when yourRoomba is plugged in. Make sure your Roomba and the Home Base have plenty of space for ventilation. Do not charge your Roomba on a carpet or rug.



Charge and store your Roomba in a cool, dry place. Keep your Roomba out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat such as windows, radiators, heating vents, and large appliances.



Remove the battery when not using your Roomba for a long period of time. If you will not be using your Roomba for more than a few weeks, fully charge the battery, remove it, and store it in a cool, dry place. When you want to use your Roomba again, insert the battery and fully charge it. Leaving your Roomba plugged in for weeks when it is not being used can damage the battery.

You can purchase a second battery or replacement online at the iRobot Store.
