Error 5 what dose it mean


(Condensed from the iRobot site...) "Uh Oh Error 5" or "Uh Oh" and 5 beeps means Roomba's Side Wheel is stuck. Pick up Roomba and with Roomba right side up, push the side wheel up and down a few times to clear debris. Manually rotate the side wheels to clear debris. Blow air through the side wheel pockets (or vacuum them with an upholstery tool on a traditional vacuum) to clear debris. If this doesn't clear the obstruction, then contact iRobot customer support.

I starts and tehn stops and beeps three times. I can start it aain and it will run but then it does the same thing'


Hi,

TYhe iRobot Roomba has different model designations. Here is a webpage with a list of what the beeps mean in the 400 series. I am thinking that is what you have. 3 beeps means the dirt cup is dirty, filters are dirty, or debris in collecting and it needs to be cleaned.

Here is the webpage: http://uksupport.irobot.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1047/kw/iRobot%20Roomba%20Discovery%20SE%20Bagless%20Robotic%204200%20series%20Vacuum%20beeps%203%20times/related/1

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Took Roomba apart to clean and now the pick up brushes start and stop during cleaning. The vaccum is clean but will not constantly spin. Runs great but pick up brushes start and stop. Is there a number...


You can go to www.iRobot.com . This is the roomba website. You should be able to find replacement parts, customer support, videos or the Roomba product, and more.
When you cleaned your Roomba, did you also clean the wheel wells and outer most edges of the brush brush cartridges? There can be lint, threads, and at my house, cat hair, wrapped around the outermost edges of the brush cartridges.
I hope my suggestions help. If so, please contact Fixya and rate my solution.
Thanks and Good Luck!

I had the same problem. You must clean this parts and inside this parts:

Remove hair with cleaning tool
Remove Roomba's brush bearings
Clean Roomba's brush bearings with cleaning tool

No suction on Roomba 560


Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module. If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.
