SOURCE: My Roomba will spin and attempt to move for about 10seconds and then it stops and a red circle comes on. debris has been removed, one black and white ball wheel has some debris What is wrong?

Hey Pat,
The wheels/axles/drive must be totally free from any carpet fibers, lint,etc.. so they can spin free..any restrictions will cause a problem.

if it does, you are facing a known issue of bumper sensor fail.

My roomba won't go forward it just spins in a circle and will go backwards. I have already tried cleaning it out and cleaning the front bumper sensors.


You will need to take the top off to clear those wheels.
This happens a lot when cleaning new carpet. The fuzz jams the wheel switch, and dosey do you go.

535 series - just put in new battery - does not work - just spins around in circles and tries to back up - then beeps nine times (bumper?) Won't dock.


Hey

Please look for other same problem posted here ;-)

You are probably facing a bumper sensor issue.
Try to clean the bumper first and if this goes on, either call iRobot service, or
take a look at this page for the step by step 9 beep fix.

Spins around in a circle and then beeps 9 times and shuts off


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

My Roomba will not move forward. It will try and spin itself and then try to move forward but then spin itself again until it stops and beeps. I tried cleaning the whole unit but it still is unable move...

Backs up spins in circles, then red light flashes and beeps


Sounds like either the battery is bad or not being charged properly with subsequent loss of programming.

Irobot scooba 5800 spins quickly then sets off backwards


Remove and clean all of the wheels, and make sure the cliff sensors under the bumper are clean. Tap the bumper with your hand-- really smack it a couple of times. It sounds like the Scooba believes it's stuck against an obstacle.
