If it is only 2 months old, then it is under warranty, take it in for warranty repair. There may be a circuit breaker on it, usually on the back at the bottom, it there is, push it to see if it has tripped.

SOURCE: Roomba works but the dirt stops at the filter. New filter did not help.

The robot dirt tray has a vacuum motor to assist the dirt flow from the floor brushes. Yours is not working. recheck the connections on the dirt tray.

Do my Dirt Devil have a restart button it just stop running


Hi! No the vacuum doesn't have a restart button, but it does have a thermal protector that will shut the vacuum down when it is overheated. If your dirt cup was too full this will activate the thermal protector sensor. Clogs and dirty filters can cause this as well. We recommend emptying the dirt cup, tapping out the filter and checking the hose for clogs. The vacuum will come back on usually within 45 minutes to an hour. Hope this helps.

Vacuum spits dirt out of the back end as I'm vacuuming.


Heather,Does the vacuum have a switch or a lever somewhere that makes it change from floor to hose? If so, it sounds like you've been using it on the hose selection but not actually sweeping using the hose. In other words, on an upright vacuum when sweeping just with the vacuum normally have the lever on floor setting and if you use the hose/attachments you have to have the lever on hose setting for things to work correctly. Hope this helps!

How do you empty it?


There is a black clip at the top of the dirt cup which holds the dirt cup in place on this vacuum. Pull back on this clip with one hand and with the other you will be able to remove the entire dirt cup assembly. Once the dirt cup assembly is off remove the lid, and take the bottom portion to the trash can and dump. Tap the side of the cup slightly to remove excess dirt. Romove the dirt cup filter inside and do the same. Replace the fiter and the lid and put it back on to the machine. You should replace the dirt cup filter every 6 months to a year. Part is below:

The vacuum works on carpet mode but not floor and only when the wand is attached to the floor brush otherwise it does not work at all


Please define "works" on carpet mode" do you mean when you say it does not work at all, that it does not run, or does not have suction.
This sounds like the symptom of a clogged hose with blockage like this another vac needs to be used to draw things back out of the hose the way they went in.. Remove the hose and try dropping a penny through it . If there is an obstruction the penny will stop at that point and rattle inside the hose.

With a blockage at the hose, your power head will still lift lint and light soft dust, it will appear to have suction because the brush will sweep but the dirt will not go all the way through the hose.
Please post back to clarify if this is a vac that does not run or simpley has no suction

Bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed


The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).

Roomba stops and beeps three times and the max light keeps flashing....


Just fixed my roomba that was doing the stop after 2-5 minutes of running, beep 3 times ect... What I did was took off the back part (the trash bin) removed the 5 screws on the bottom, this removes the top and bottom shell, then I removed the 2 screws that are at the bottom of the vacuum's motor. And I cleaned it with a damp cloth. Once clean I let it air dry. She is running like she is new :-)

How do I change my kirby g4 to sweep/mop mode?


Turn the belt lifter to red arrows matching to sweep the kitchen floor. This stops the brushroll from turning and allows you to use straight suction. There is a hard floor pad available...see the link to my guide and you may find one for sale...
As for mopping...I just dump a small bit of soapy water on the floor and run my Kirby shampooer (with no solution in the tank) on the lowest setting to scrub, then I dry mop behind it to pick up the excess water. There really are no instructions in the manual for scrubbing linoleum, but I just improvised. It splashes a bit, but better than getting down on hands and knees. Here is a guide to hook up the shampooer...
