Irobot Roomba will not turn off

My Roomba continues to run no matter what I do to try to turn it off. It doesn't move anywhere, it just runs. We removed the battery in hopes of re-setting it, but as soon as I put the battery back in, it starts up again without prompting. Is there another reset I'm missing? How do I get it back to normal?

I think both of you who responded are tools.

The issue is on the main board. What JBugs is saying is the brushes continue to run even if the unit is manually turned off.

There is no fix other than to replace the main board. There is a circuit which drives the brushes. If the circuit electronically gets stuck in a closed position, then the brushes will run until out of power.

There is a way to install a switch in the brush circuits but then you must manually turn the brushes on each time you want to clean.

Best bet is to call iRobot, complain and buy one of the out of warranty replacements for $99. This replacement will allow you to schedule the unit to wake up and will perform exactly like the Scheduler.

My roomba wakes up in the middle of the night and makes wired noises


Is this a Roomba with, 1. low power, 2. one that had low power, but is now charged up and ready to go or 3. did your power go off briefly the night and when it came back on Roomba got a power surge and "responded". You might want to try unplugging Roomba when not charging or being used. I did this but it seemed to affect how long by Roomba could run later between battery recharges.

IRobot 530 charges intermittently


Reset the Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for fifteen seconds, then release and listen for the tune. Then charge the Roomba overnight. The next time you run it, the unit should run longer. If not, call support and let them know you may have a battery problem. 1-877-855-8593 (I strongly encourage you to have the Roomba with you if you call.)

Roomba cuts off after a minute or so.


If you have a 400 series Roomba, try removing the battery, then holding down the power button for ten seconds, then recharging the unit before you run it again.

If you have a 500 series Roomba, don't take out the battery-- just press and hold the "spot" and "dock" buttons for about fifteen seconds. The Roomba will play a tune, and you can then charge it and try running it again later.

Irobot moving slowly


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.

IRobot Roomba Discovery not moving across room.


I had the same kind of problem with my model 400 today...after starting it and having it go in a circle for 30 seconds or so it would finally run into something and then back up a few inches, turn, then go forward a few inches, then back up a few inches, turn, then go forward a few inches, etc., etc.. I tried cleaning off the four pairs of sensors under the bumper and blowing out various things underneath (by mouth since I didn't have any canned compressed air). It didn't really help. It then occurred to me that I had a leaf blower! I put the Roomba upside down on the grass, put the leaf blower on high, and blew at it from all directions and up close. More dust came out than I thought would. It has been running normally now for the last 45 minutes.
