Hey mike im an expert do the following >>
Check the side wheels for obstructions.
First Try:
• With the robot on its back, push the wheels up and down several times to make sure nothing is stuck. Turn the wheels by hand to see if they both have the same amount of resistance.
• Clean the wheel assemblies

Check the side wheels for obstructions.

• With the robot on its back, push the wheels up and down several times to make sure nothing is stuck. Turn the wheels by hand to see if they both have the same amount of resistance.
• Clean the wheel assembly out with compressed air and/or a vacuum

this doesn't help?

We have a zenith dehumidifier model ZD300 & the bucket full light keeps flashing. the percentage number wont go higher than 1%. we have turned it off/on & unplugged it. When we do this it will...


I've had the same issue with mine. I am a 12 year refrigeration tech. I checked the float switch which would normally cause that indication light. However manually pushing the switch and then checking it with an electric meter that was not the case. I think that is instead, an error code set by the manufacturer to assist the service tech when or if this failure occurs during the warrenty period. I also checked the next possible failure in the sequence of opperation which would be the compressor overload relay. That is sometimes why, as some people have posted, that after when unplugging the unit, it operates for a short time then again fails. In my case that was the failure. If that would have not been it than I would have tried the compressor start relay. I purchased the overload relay from my local HVAC/plumbing supply for around 7$. The control can easily be replaced by any handy homeowner. Also, as a service tech, 7$ and two wire nuts is better than a 145+$ service call.

Red flashing light with 6 beeps


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.
