My iRobot Roomba runs for about ten minutes, then shuts off. I can keep pushing the clean button and it will run for another ten minutes and stop again. Nothing seems to get clean.

Take the brush rolls out and you should see a copper disc. It is the dirt sensor. Clean it with Windex or some other cleaner. This works sometimes.

Room a 620 keeps stopping


It could be clogged with hair (when was the last time you cleaned it out?), it could be the battery isn't holding a charge any longer. It could be getting caught on something . How long is it running before stopping? I found I used to get about a two hour run from my Roomba, before the red light flashed. Then I started to unplug the charger and Roomba when it had a full charge and it wasn't needed. I noticed that after this the Roomba didn't run as long, maybe one hour, before needing a charge again. I leave it plugged in all the time now.

My Irobot Roomba keeps saying that I need to clean Roombas brushes. I have cleaned the brushes...they are spotless. Still the Roomba will go for 2 minutes and shut itself off stating once again to clean...


Perform the troubleshooting found at the iRobot website: http://tinyurl.com/nh5c8a (I promise that really does go to the right site.) That troubleshooting will enable you to determine exactly what's causing this problem. (The Easy Way: Run the Roomba minus the dustbin and look in the back. Is the brush turning? If not, there's the problem. Give support a call at 1-877-855-8593 and they'll let you know how to replace the necessary part.)

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.

Please clean Roomba s brushes warning will not stop after brushes have been cleaned Unit shuts off after one minute of cleaning


Clean the yellow brush bearings. Then run the Roomba without the dustbin, so that you can watch the brush while the unit is cleaning. Is it turning? If not, call customer support. 877-855-8593. Have your Roomba with you; they will want information from it. Good luck.

It sounds like the battery is shot. These batteries only work for a couple of years and then they won't accept a charge any more. A common mistake people make is recharging them before they need it. This will make the battery "lazy"
Contact the manufacturer for more info.
