Roomba 560 fully charges. Runs for 2 seconds fully green and just stops. And lights up red.????


Set him on the floor, after powering him off and then back on, and press the "Clean" button three times. This will reset him.

Red triangle and roomba stopped


If you get a red triangle with the two tone beep, and no voice prompt, roomba 770 runs for a few minutes or just immediately goes to red triangle...if you have thoroughly cleaned moving parts and find no obstructions, you may have the problem I had that stumped me for a week. Remove the trash bin, with roomba upside down, and there are 4 silver contacts that connect to two metal tabs on the trash bin. Over time the contacts lose some of their contact pressure. Use needle nose pliers to slightly rebend them so they make good contact to the trash bin contacts. These contacts feed the vacuum motor inside the trash bin. That fixed mine.

Roomba 530 runs for about a minute then stops and red light is on. Cleaned everything, still happens. Roomba is about 3 yrs old, lots of use.


Battery time! Get a nice new longer life battery on Ebay, or go for the Nicad replacement if you have no carpet and want to save some cash.

My roomba 530 runs in a circle and does not move forward. After 2 minutes it stops with 11 beeps and a flashing red light to the left of the power button. It has no clicking noise. Does anyone know what is...


Hey'
This means Roomba is not registering obstacles. Roomba may be stuck in one place.
Roomba may be in extremely large room, try setting up virtual walls to create smaller area.
If Roomba is not in a large room, tap Roomba's bumper to confirm it is properly working.


Hope this helps

Red sensor


If your Roomba's red "check robot" light comes on, the Roomba should also give a hi-lo warning tone, then a number of beeps. Check the number of beeps with the chart toward the end of your manual-- it should tell you what to do.

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.

Roomba red 4100 cleans in small circle stops starts agains cleans small circle stops then status light comes on and clean button blinks.


When the status light comes on, the Roomba is going to sing "uh-oh," and then beep a number of times. Count the beeps. They're a code that tells you what's wrong with the Roomba. You can check iRobot's website for a chart of beep codes. Search "What is Roomba saying to me?" on the troubleshooting page.

Roomba 4108 does not charge


Try resetting your Roomba by removing the battery, unplug the charging connector, hold down the Power button for 30 seconds. This will reset the charging system, replace your battery, connect your charger and see what happens. By the way do you also have a homebase ? If so try that too
