Have you cleaned out the dirt compartment? This compartment is very small and fills fast ... Roomba does not have a vacuum in it ... it just sweeps so make sure the brushes are working and in good order ... to test the brushes hold it up and turn it on make sure your fingers are clear of wheels and moving brushes before turning it on. Visually inspect to see if brushes are turning also check for hair and string around wheels and brushes.
dont forget to rate me Thx :) and good luck

I am using a dirt devil wet dry vac and it is picking up water great but is spraying alot of water out of the top!


Sounds like you are not getting a good seal. Make sure it is locking tight. You may have to use some duct tape! Some have a seal around the top where the cannister is affixed. Check this, may need to get a new rubber seal.

My roomba 550 goes round and round going know where.all the rest work ok


I have the complete service manual for the 550 series. It is in PDF format and if you would like the complete manual, give me your email address and I will send it to you. Below is the basic cause and repair for your irobot's condition.
Circling at slow, normal or rapid speed:
Most common causes: Dirt has infiltrated the wheel encoder or a drive belt has failed.
In MOST cases, the robot's software will recognize and correct the behavior within minutes. If the battery was recently reset, the robot may act erratic again at startup until the software has a chance to correct the condition. • If the Robot does not resume normal driving behavior within the first couple minutes of runtime, go to DRIVE WHEEL Module inspection and cleaning (Appendix C). If cleaning wheel modules does not correct the problem, both wheel modules may need to be replaced. • Replace drive wheel modules if fixes fail.

Vaccuum will not pick up very much off of the floor


You have a clog in the hose or port going from the brush's to the dirt container. You can blow these out with a compressor. Note: You must seal the end (can use your hand wrapped around it) that you put the compressor hase in. You can also use a more powerfull vacuum that has a exaust on it to do the job.

My vacuum will not pick up even fuzz on the carpet


If the suction is strong through the hose and its still not picking up, then something is definately clogged despite the strong suction and rolle brush. Check all inspection tubes including the main dirt channel behind the roller brush. You may find something that keeps getting in the way when dirt or hair is trying to bypass through.

Vacuum filter


We bought one a couple years ago too, no filters. Now, WalMart carries replacement filters for other vacuums that will fit. Go back to WalMart and pick up the Durabrand CF2006 - it's in an orange box, works like a champ, I think it was around $5. We bought a couple. Great vacuum.
