It's the bumper. Blow it out with compressed air and clean the cliff sensors. If you still get the 9-beep error, call support.

The problem is your Roomba's bumper. Tap it with your hand about a dozen times, blow it out with compressed air, and then try running the Roomba. If the same thing occurs, call support at 1-877-855-8593. (Be sure to have the Roomba with you when you call.)

Perhaps its a wheel drop sensor instead of a cliff sensor. Clean the caster, caster axle, caster motion sensor, remove and vacuum or blow the dirt from the left and right wheel assemblies.

Yes, this is known issue and if your bumper moves freely, you might be facing a sensor fault caused by poor quality of components.

IRobot will act like it going to clean - spins around then eventually stops then beeps 9 times then nothing. I have cleaned but still not working?


9 beeps means the bumper is stuck. try gently whacking the bumper so it bounces back... also spray some compressed air under the bumper, their might be something lodged under it.

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

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.

IT WILL ONLY RUN IN A CIRCLE AS IF IT IS IN SPOT MODE


Try blowing out the unit, particularly the bumper, with compressed air. Clean off the little windows on the underside of the bumper-- these are the cliff sensors. Then, most importantly, tap the bumper with your hand about half a dozen times to knock loose anything that's stuck. If the issue persists, give a call to customer support and let them know you're having the 9-beep errror.

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.)
