Question about iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum

1 Answer

Help Hi I have had my irobot roomba model 4000 now for 3 months now, I just LOVE it sooo much. I have used it everyday since I got it. But now it is not working. I cleaned it all out I even sprayed it with that air spray can. What happens is, It starts to go then it acts like there is something in the way and stops then goes the other way, then goes off. What is wrong? Please help!!!

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.

Amber flashing light while on home base. New, pulled tab, placed on dock. First time said charge err1, took out battery and replaced. Now just flashes amber. Is this correct?


Your manuals are here. Flashing lights must be covered. A quick look at the site says flashing red is bin full. In fact, I found it. Flashing Amber is CHARGING.

IRobot rumba 4000 seems to run ok and then starts making a kinda hi pitched growling noise and slows way down. it is very clean(blown clean with air compressor)sensors are clear ,newly installed well...


It sounds like your Roomba's brush gears are not working. Run the robot without the dust bin to see if the brushes are turning. If they are not, the robot will need to be replaced. Contact iRobot CS for support at (877) 855-8593.

How do I figure out which model I have? I do not have any manuals for my roomba. Currently when I turn it on, it will make a continuous non-increasing circle, then shut itself off.


HI There,

In order to find out which model Roomba you have, turn the machine upside down and look for a sticker that contains the serial and model number.

There are basically 2 different series of Roomba's, the newer 500 series, and the older 4000 series Discovery series. These models usually had multiple buttons on the top, unlike the newer 500 series which have just one.

The older series models included a white, red, green, and yellow colored machines, where as the newer 500 series models have a more sleek design, usually with just a single button in the center. The newer 500 series have colors of black, and silver with different combinations of the two.

Here's a link to pictures of all of the different Roomba series ever made, and the models that they contained:

Also, in terms of the circling problem your Roomba is having, here's a very helpful link that will show you how to fix the "Roomba Circle Dance" as it's been named, haha dancing robotic vacuum cleaners, I just got a mental picture, lol.
