Sounds like one of the cliff sensors has gone bad. I think your options are to send it in for repair or buy a replacement sensor and swap it in.
Good luck, immorion check out robotreviews.com for detailed walk through and a great community

Hi, visit EESolutions.ca and compare your Roombas behaviour with the one in their video. If it is similiar, they can sell you a do-it-yourself repair kit that you can use to fix your broken Roomba.

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.
