Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

iRobot Roomba Vacuuming Robots and the iRobot Dirt Dog Workshop Robot are equipped with four infrared Cliff Sensors that prevent robots from falling off stairs or ledges. The Cliff Sensors are located along the inside of the bumper. If the Sensors become obstructed by dust or debris, the infrared signal is weakened. Regularly inspect and clean the Sensors. Use compressed air for best cleaning results.

I had a Roomba and it was hopeless. It is what I would call a "dumb" Robot. I finally chucked it. Just got the new Neato XV-11. Amazing unit and you have to really work at it to get it stuck. I highly recommend it.

Side brush doesn't spin all the time and doesn't go on some of my rugs


hey tsahcub
1. check if its screw is not released and if it is, tighten it,
2. while doing so check for any dirt/hair and clean the pivot area.
3, if that doesn't work, unscrew and take the brush out (pull straight)
check its reverse side for any cracks, if it has one you need to replace the brush with a new one
Hope that helps Avi

I bought Roomba 560 robot vacuum cleaner about 3 weeks ago and it has been cleaned without problem all kind of positions of floors (also carpets) Last friday I anyway mountained nearby of outcoming door...


Roomba won't clean black carpet because it interprets it as a cliff. The sensors under the bumper tell the Roomba that it's about to fall down the stairs and it backs away. Unfortunately, because they're a safety feature, they can't be shut off.

Backward spinning roomba


If you are lucky then one of the 4 sensors under the bumper has dust lint buildup. Blow out these areas and give your unit a good cleaning. If it still continues to do this then the bumper bar sensor should be replaced

Roomba Discovery 4120 barely moving


I don't have the same roomba that you have, but I had a lot of dog/cat hair stuck on the fan in the trash bin section. Once I removed that it started to work again. I used an air compressor to give it a really good blow out.
Here is a link that might help you out.

Roomba got stuck and now it won't go


Would it be that you wound up with someone else's problem and that is why they sold it at a garage sell?

Roomba Discovery wiggles back and forth and turns over and over


No matter your model Roomba, this occurs when Roomba has gone "crazy." Its brain is no longer working properly and you can usually tell this when you've cleaned the dickens out of it a few times and the behavior is still the same. There's only one possible user fix and that is to take out the battery, hold down the power button for 20-30 seconds then reinsert the battery.

If that doesn't do the trick, IRobot might send you something called an Ozmo which you put in the data port to rewrite Roomba's brain. Unfortunately this requires it to be under warranty unless you get lucky. Good luck, all!

IRobot Roomba Discovery not moving across room.


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.
