Question about Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

Bumper switches on continues

On initial start the roomba 540 works OK, then when it hits an obstacle it circles only, then stops with error code 9 beeps. Phoned service they advised to blow air, done that, no change. So I assume the bumper switches are on continuously. What is the next step? How do I take the 540 apart to repair the switches?

Hi. An IR LED is damaged. You can replace the sensor or purchase a complete cliff sensor bumper.

After running a short time ok, it starts going in circles, then gives error code 9


The nine-beep error means you have a dirty or defective bumper sensor. You might want to start by spraying compressed air around the sensors to move and dirt or debris that are causing the vacuum to think it is jammed against a wall or furniture.

Hey

Please look for other same problem posted here ;-)

You are probably facing a bumper sensor issue.
Try to clean the bumper first and if this goes on, either call iRobot service, or
take a look at this page for the step by step 9 beep fix.

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

My Roomba 560 has started to run in small steps as if it constantly meets an obstacle and turns around in a very small circle. It advances slightly, backs slightly and turns and then does this again and...


It probably does think its met an obstacle. It could be the bump sensor switch remains pressed, one of the 4 cliff sensors on the front is dirty, or one of the 3 wheel drop sensors (left right and caster) is alarmed. Clean the sensors and your problem may resolve.

Dont move forward.


Blow out the unit with compressed air, particularly around the wheels and under the bumper. Tap the bumper with your hand.

If your Roomba stops and beeps at you, count the beeps AFTER the initial "uh-oh" tone. Then call customer support (1-877-855-8593) for assistance.

Good luck.

My roomba now just spins in circles in one spot. it does not go anywhere.


Try blowing out your bumper with compressed air. Tap the bumper with your hand to knock loose any obstructions. Then run your Roomba. If the behavior persists, the best way to resolve it is to call customer support. (The number should be in your documentation or on the bottom of the robot.)

Call customer support. Your Roomba has a faulty bumper sensor.

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.
