Stop dog from crushing couch pillows and getting dog hair all over couch

I had lowes cut a 4x8ft piece of 1/8 in thick of masonite to 2ft x 7ft ( the length of 2 of my couches. Dirt cheap. I put them on the couch when we leave. Store in a closet when home. When we left, the dog would get comfortable by crushing the pillows and getting dog hair all over the pillows. Extends the life of the couch.

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

    Stuck front wheel

    I have the same problem, but it looks like no one has the solution. I have taken the screws out of the wheel but that doesn't help remove the wheel to check what is stuck. Help us!

    Dirt Dog is going over stairs! Why?

    On the front of the dirt dog there are 4 "Cliff Sensors" which tell it to back up or turn when it "Sees" steps. Clean these with a Q tip. If that doesnt work, go through the "Diagnostic" procedure listed here....

    Dirt dog goes backwards and in circles

    It probably needs to have it's coordinates reset. It has the layout of the room to vacuum stored in memory, for a pattern to follow. Try doing the procedure again that it needed before it's first use.

    IRobot Roomba Dirt Dog sounds weak and stops

    Generally the unit will beep or play the "uh-oh" tone or do something. I wish I could tell you what's going on with this Dirt Dog, but it's not communicating the problem. The best thing to do would be to give us a call when you have the robot with you. That will enable us to do any necessary troubleshooting as well as set up any orders that might be necessary. We're here M-F, 9a-7p, and Saturdays 9-6, EST. 1-877-855-8593 Look forward to hearing from you!
