Open Question

Roomba won't run straight goes side to side

My roomba is very erratic, it won't go in a straight line anymore, he turns a little to the left and then a little to the right. It seems to stay in basically the same little area of the floor.

Roomba560 goes a few feet hits something get stuck and turns off


Does the Roomba say anything after it hits something? Mine usually says to reposition it or somesuch message. Mine will run up on a towel left on the floor, get stuck, say to reposition it and then if we don't, he shuts off. The thing with Roombas is they have to be cleaned after one or two runs. I think that's probably your problem. Take the filter compartment off, empty it out, pop the filter off and shake that into the trash. Press the two yellow plastic (on mine) release latches and take the brushes off. Remove the hair, thread and dental floss wrapped around the brushes and caught around the ends. We just added another dog to our house and I have to clean Roomba at least 33% more often now. Get a thin screw driver and insert it in the side to pop out the axle attached to the black and white roller ball. Hair gets trapped in here and the ball can't turn as well. Wipe off the two sensors on either side of this ball.

Roomba stays in same little area


First off Roomba is Ms. Roomba...a fine lady!

The problem with HER is it is a woman who can\'t make up her mind where to go. She has a Computer Brain and it is Programmed by the company to move in a direction and respond to its surroundings. If the Brain was disturbed, the commands are mixed at times and thus, incorrect signals make the unit jerk around. Contact the Service center and perhaps get a system test to locate the source of the problem.

Roomba 4210 won't start


  • Lift Roomba off the floor and place it in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle.
  • If Roomba did not resume cleaning, lift Roomba and turn it over.* Inspect the Side Wheels for dirt or obstructions.
  • Test the Side Wheels by pushing them in and out and making sure they rotate freely. Place Roomba in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle

    What are these 2 blinking lights on my irobot roomba?


    "The Charge Indicator Light is located immediately to the right of the power button on Roomba Red and Roomba (sage). On Roomba Discovery and Discovery SE, the Charge Indicator Light is incorporated into the power button. Please refer to the table below to determine what the Charge Indicator Light is telling you.

    * Pulsing Amber - Charging
    * Green - Fully Charged
    * Amber - Partially Discharged
    * Red - Almost Fully Discharged
    * Flashing Red - Fully Discharged"
    At the end of a cleaning mission, Roomba will tell you if it has successfully completed it's mission or not:

    GREEN = MISSION COMPLETE

    YELLOW = MISSION ABANDONED (Check robot's brushes, etc.)

    YELLOW RED POWER BUTTON = BATTERY DEPLETED (Scheduler Models)

    RED YELLOW POWER BUTTON = BATTERY DEPLETED (Discovery Models)
    number of beeps after ?uh-oh? :

    No beeps: A wheel is stuck or is not touching the ground. Pick up the robot, place it down securely on the floor and touch the clean button to restart the cycle.

    1 beep: The main brushes cannot turn. Turn over Roomba and remove the brush guard by pushing the two yellow tabs. Remove the brushes, clear any obstructions, and replace them again.

    2 beeps: The side brush cannot turn. Turn over Roomba. Look to see if something is wrapped around the side brush. Remove the side brush with a screw driver and check for string or hair that may be wrapped around it.

    3 beeps: The vacuum cannot run Remove and empty Roomba?s bin.

    4 beeps: A wheel motor cannot run Your Roomba may be stuck or something may be wrapped around a wheel. Look for something wrapped around the wheels. Push them in and out and make sure they turn easily.

    5 beeps: The cliff sensors have failed or are blocked. Turn over Roomba and clear any debris that might be caught underneath the front bumper in the cliff sensors. You can also use compressed air to clean them out.

    6 beeps: Wheel obstruction or robot attempting to drive over an obstacle. Turn over Roomba and remove any obstructions that prevent the wheels from seating all the way up into Roomba?s body. Also, remove any obstacles that Roomba could drive over.

    7 or 8 beeps: Not applicable Roomba?s beep codes do not include 7 or 8 beeps. If you are getting an error with 7 or 8 beeps, try counting again or contact iRobot Customer Care.

    9 beeps: Sensor error Please contact iRobot Customer Care.

    10 beeps: Roomba is stuck Pick up Roomba and start it again somewhere else. Use a virtual wall or other barrier to keep Roomba away from the
    place it got stuck.

    Your Roomba may be experiencing an issue where the battery is deeply discharged and may need to charge longer than the standard 3 hours. (or 7 hours if you have a standard charger)

    Even with the charging light showing green (this indicates a fully charged battery) the robot is still charging. If your Roomba exhibits behavior where it charges for a short time then runs for a short time you will need to do the following.

    1. Plug the charger into Roomba (if you have a home base be sure to plug directly into Roomba instead of using the home base, this will ensure the robot's charging cycle is not interrupted.)

    2. After the Roomba's charging indicator goes to solid green please keep the Roomba on the charger for an additional 72 hours. (3 days)

    3. After the 72 hours (3 days) has passed, turn your Roomba on and begin a normal cleaning cycle. If this works successfully it may take several uses for the battery to get back up to the performance it once had.

    If this does not correct the problem, please call customer support at 877-855-8593

    Roomba going in circles


    Roomba going in circles. Called irobot and if reseting it (by taking out the battery, unplugging it from the charger, and holding down the power button for 30 seconds), didn't work, turn the roomba over, take a compressor and blow air into the front. Maybe a shop vac would also work. We cleaned out the whole thing while we were at it. And now it works just fine. The tech person at irobot was very helpful.

    Turns in circles, acts like it hits a virtual wall then stops


    Reboot is probably not your solution. Your Roomba will react to invisible signals or 'interference' from other electrical appliances as well as the invisible wall boxes. You can clearly see how this happens when a Roomba gets near your computer or other device that is on. Also, the Roomba will go in circles when the dirt chamber is full or it thinks it's full. Try a thorough clean of all major parts including the brushes. Sometimes this activity will occur when the brushes get snarled on thread or carpet fibers.

    My roomba discovery will not operate on the clean or max buttons, will do the spot clean and goes forward then circles. Turns itself off and plays a little da do da do do do do. I have emptied tray,...


    If your Roomba goes "uh-oh", beep-beep-beep, that's a 3-beep error code, indicating that your vacuum motor is stalled. Remove the grill from the outside (back) of the dustbin and make sure that the impeller (looks like a fan) turns easily and is not clogged with dirt. Then try to run the robot with the bin ON but the grill OFF. You should be able to tell whether the vacuum impeller is spinning. If not, you'll need a new bin. You can confirm wth customer support by calling 1-877-855-8593.

    My Roomba 560 does not automatically dock as advertised either..


    You may not believe this, but the new 500 series lighthouse virtual walls have both infrared and radio frequency communication. How they work and associate with the Roomba is pretty complicated. The best posting I've ever seen about how they work is here:
    http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11048

    Check out that link to understand how the communication works.

    If your Roomba is contained by the virtual walls, then you can assume the IR sensor on your Roomba us good....you should test that though. Then you might have to replace the "home base" which could have a bad IR transponder . New ones can be found for reasonable price at www.RoboticVacParts.com or you could order straight from iRobot for twice the price.

    If the Roomba is not contained by the virtual walls, then the IR sensor on the Roomba is likely bad and you'll need to change the bumper on your Roomba. Again ....parts are available through ebay, or www.RoboticVacParts.com. Follow this link if you need it.

    No suction


    Roomba does much of its cleaning by the brush and roller on the bottom, but an important part is the little fan at the back of the debris bin which provides 100% of the 'suction.'
    First, take off the vent cover on the back of the debris compartment and start Roomba on a mission. You will see the little turbine spin (if it's working) and probably a little dust cloud will come out.
    It may not be working at best efficiency, however, because dirt gets sucked into the housing and blocks much of the air flow. Now that you know what the fan/turbine looks like (it's quite small, only the size of two stacked silver dollars), peer down into the larger opening of the debris bin and view the turbine from the other side. Chances are there's some crud stuck down there which is impeding air flow. (There's a hollow part of the turbine where the air is sucked into before being expelled out the back, that's probably filled with pet hair/dust/etc.) Clean that out using a long knife, chopsticks, or anything else that can reach down in there. Bang the dust bin down (lightly) to dislodge any more hair that's up there and continue cleaning until it's all gone.
    I've had 3 Roomba's and they all get hair stuck up there. I only have to do this once a year or so (multi-cat and dog household here!) but it makes all the difference in the world.

    IRobot Roomba Discovery not moving across room.


    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.
