IRobot Dirt dog avoids home base charger

IRobot Dirt Dog works fine otherwise but avoids the home base despite it's known to be ok. Dirt Dog correctly avoids virtual wall IR beams, and sees and avoids the home base IR beam, but never tries to dock when the battery starts to die...several times it simply died in place adjacent to the home base.

SOURCE: iRobot Roomba Dirt Dog sounds weak and stops

Generally the unit will beep or play the "uh-oh" tone or do something. I wish I could tell you what's going on with this Dirt Dog, but it's not communicating the problem. The best thing to do would be to give us a call when you have the robot with you. That will enable us to do any necessary troubleshooting as well as set up any orders that might be necessary. We're here M-F, 9a-7p, and Saturdays 9-6, EST. 1-877-855-8593 Look forward to hearing from you!

SOURCE: Stuck front wheel

I have the same problem, but it looks like no one has the solution. I have taken the screws out of the wheel but that doesn't help remove the wheel to check what is stuck. Help us!

Roomba troubleshooting roomba irobot 700 series wont work?


What sort of light do you see when you correctly place it onto it's charger? Green light is what you want to see. Otherwise it doesn't have a charge. I would check to see if it needs a cleaning.

Tip

Irobot, Dirt Dog, Scooba


By now I bet most of you have seen one of these.
They clean your carpet and don't complain about a paycheck.
They scrub your floors and they clean your shop, and some of them even do it on a schedule, while others clean out your rain gutters, and the expensive ones clean your pool!

Well guess what?

They all have pretty much the same brain.
Know what that means to you?
They can ALL clean on a predetermined schedule!

Yes Irobot sells a Roomba called a scheduler which has a remote control, but they can all be programmed with that same remote control to clean at any time you desire, 7 days a week, once a day. The real beauty of this though is that you can buy that remote on Ebay for pretty cheap.

The only thing you have to remember is to set them to different times and feed those times in separately. You MUST have the Irobot turned on prior to sending it a schedule, otherwise you wont hear a confirmation tone.

Lets say you want the Dirt Dog to clean up a pretty nasty floor before the Roomba does it's thing. You set the day, lets make it Wednesday.
Now you set the scheduler on the remote control pad so the Irobot runs when you're asleep.

The average Dirt Dog runs 45 minutes to an hour, so we set it for midnight.
Then we set the Roomba for 1am. For each time we set for each device there will have to be a code sent and recorded by the device itself, which wil be followed by a short confirmation tone.

Remember that before you send a new schedule to a different robot, you will have to erase or modify the old schedule recorded in the remote control. The schedule doesn't need to be present on the remote control for the Irobot to run on time. Once the schedule has been sent and the confirmation tone has sounded, nothing else needs to be done for the Irobot to do it's job, so you can safely wipe the previous schedule and set a new one, then send that schedule to another Irobot.

When the Remote Control sends a code, it effectively sets the clock on the Irobot, then tells it when to run according to that clock.

Now lets say you want the kitchen floors scrubbed every wednesday, but you dont want the Scooba bumping into either the Dirt Dog or the Roomba.
The solution is to set it to run at 2am.

The end result is a very clean floor that even your toddler can safely play on. Lets also remember that the very same remote control you use to set those schedules can also be used to guide and control the Irobot much like you would a remote controlled toy car. SO, if you have a party and someone spills a drink, you can simply guide the Scooba to that spot and have it wash and wet-vac the area.

That's my Tip for the Day

Dirt Dog is going over stairs! Why?


On the front of the dirt dog there are 4 "Cliff Sensors" which tell it to back up or turn when it "Sees" steps. Clean these with a Q tip. If that doesnt work, go through the "Diagnostic" procedure listed here....http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10821&start=0

Bin barely fills. Lots of dog hair between brushes and bin, and is now dropping hair balls as it goes around the house


This is why Roomba recommends a thorough clean of your carpet with a standard vac prior to using your mini vac. Once all heavy debris has been removed, the roomba will maintain that state of clean. If you have that much dog hair, you cant expect such a small roller, brush and dustbin to keep up. sounds like you need the dirt dog instead. It is capable of handling heavier demand areas. Or the

Dirt dog goes backwards and in circles


It probably needs to have it's coordinates reset. It has the layout of the room to vacuum stored in memory, for a pattern to follow. Try doing the procedure again that it needed before it's first use.

Vacuum goes in circles and stops


Blow out the front, dome area with compressed air. All around the little white wheel and the bump sensor in the front of it with air.

Will fix it.
