Question about Roomba Vacuums

Open Question

My Roomba Discovery will not do our carpet. It is a medium pile tan carpet so it should be OK but it runs for a little while then shuts down and beeps. It does not try to restart.It works well on floors. I have recently done a full tear down and cleaned the drives and brush transmission.

SOURCE: Bissel Proheat Carpet cleaner

My Bissell had the same problem. The hand attachment does not use heated water. So I Found a clog of calcium and dirt in the heater portion of the unit. The heater is in the handle behind the red heater light on the front. Remove the upper portion of the handle. Remove the lower two screws in the lower portion and the parts will split apart. Remove the hoses and remove the heater. (mark where the wires go) The bottom of the heater can be removed with a screwdriver. The tubes leading into the heater is where the clog was but there was a lot of debris inside Make sure to clear it all and the hoses as well. I put it together and it works great.

SOURCE: Brushes not spinning....

My status light came on, the vac beeped twice and stopped. I noticed my brushes weren't spinning. I took an eyeglass screwdriver and took off the center screw that holds on the brushes. I cleaned the shaft that the brushes spin on. replaced brushes and it works great! I just did this now and it is still running. my status light problem is fixed my roomba is 4 years old and I am on my 2nd battery. Seems to have fixed the problem. FYI it was wrapped with hair, dirt and it was greasy.

SOURCE: Roomba Discovery 4120 barely moving

I don't have the same roomba that you have, but I had a lot of dog/cat hair stuck on the fan in the trash bin section. Once I removed that it started to work again. I used an air compressor to give it a really good blow out.
Here is a link that might help you out.

SOURCE: roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!

Remove the Yellow connectors on the end of the brushes and clean around the pin well. If there is too much there, the roomba thinks there is something stuck and goes into clear mode (as if there is a chord stuck).

Turns in circles, acts like it hits a virtual wall then stops


Reboot is probably not your solution. Your Roomba will react to invisible signals or 'interference' from other electrical appliances as well as the invisible wall boxes. You can clearly see how this happens when a Roomba gets near your computer or other device that is on. Also, the Roomba will go in circles when the dirt chamber is full or it thinks it's full. Try a thorough clean of all major parts including the brushes. Sometimes this activity will occur when the brushes get snarled on thread or carpet fibers.

My roomba 400 series keeps stopping on its own


Take off the grill on the back of the bin. The round vacuum impeller is behind it. Make sure that's clean and free of debris. Run the Roomba with that little grill still off the bin-- is the impeller turning? If yes, you may have fixed it. If not, your Roomba needs a new vacuum bin.

Roomba won't clean black carpet because it interprets it as a cliff. The sensors under the bumper tell the Roomba that it's about to fall down the stairs and it backs away. Unfortunately, because they're a safety feature, they can't be shut off.

If your Roomba goes "uh-oh", beep-beep-beep, that's a 3-beep error code, indicating that your vacuum motor is stalled. Remove the grill from the outside (back) of the dustbin and make sure that the impeller (looks like a fan) turns easily and is not clogged with dirt. Then try to run the robot with the bin ON but the grill OFF. You should be able to tell whether the vacuum impeller is spinning. If not, you'll need a new bin. You can confirm wth customer support by calling 1-877-855-8593.

Reset the Roomba by removing it from the charger, then holding "spot" and "dock" for about twelve seconds. When you let go, the unit will play an ascending series of notes. Then recharge it overnight. If the run time is still short, give Customer Support a call-- be sure to have the Roomba with you when you do.
