Roomba is dancing?


You are stuck on spot clean. Try removing the battery and reset it then try Full clean.

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 will not move forward. It will try and spin itself and then try to move forward but then spin itself again until it stops and beeps. I tried cleaning the whole unit but it still is unable move...


Hey
is it 5xx Roomba ? is it 9 beep that it sounds ?

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.
Have fun

Running backwards in circles.


If your Roomba's speaker isn't working, you need a new Roomba regardless. Give a call to customer support (877-855-8593) and they'll help you out.

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.

The roomba moves forward about a foot then spins & 4 beeps


Mine used to buck and spin and then stop. Don't know if this will work, but it did for me. Before turning my Roomba on, I hold it on the floor and move it back and forth a few times so that the wheels spin. This seems to break up the initial resistance in the wheels and it solved my problem. Good luck.

Roomba going backwards


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.
