Question about iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum
...Just keep getting message "Move roomba to a new location then press clean to restart...press clean and it does it again but won't move. Battery is fine it is running in my other roomba as I swapped them to see if it was a poor battery.

This message sometimes happens when it\'s jammed or caught. I would open it up and really clean everything out to make sure the brushes are not jammed. Also pop out the ball white/black wheel at the front and remove all the hair around the axle for this.
This almost sounds like something caught in the wheels and gears. String and the like can get caught in there. The easiest thing is to find the end of the string and try to unwind it in the direction reverse to what it caught in. I tried taking the whole Roomba apart one time, it was tough, so I don\'t recommend it unless you are very mechanically minded. FYI to everyone with a Roomba, I knew someone who expected theirs to pick up random dry cat and dog poop around the house. No vacuum can do this.

You should be able to find and download the manual for your IRobot Roomba from this site: http://homesupport.irobot.com/cgi-bin/irobot_homesupport.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=46&p_created=1153496340&p_sid=5dXQ9ZRi&p_accessibility=&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYnk9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD0xOCZwX3Byb2RzPSZwX2NhdHM9MjUyJnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9MS4yNTImcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1hbnN3ZXJzLnNlYXJjaF9ubCZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

Try running th roomba with the dust bin removed to see if the main brush is turning, if not it could be an issue with the gears being stripped in the brush motor assembly or inside the brush compartment holder. If the gears are fine the brush motor itself may be blown. A new one is about $30.00.

The iRobot website has all the manuals available on their troubleshooting page. Just search for "manual." You want the 400 series one.

SOURCE: Dont move forward.
Blow out the unit with compressed air, particularly around the wheels and under the bumper. Tap the bumper with your hand.
If your Roomba stops and beeps at you, count the beeps AFTER the initial "uh-oh" tone. Then call customer support (1-877-855-8593) for assistance.

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