Your bump sensors are malfunctioning. I had the same problem. The best thing to do is order a repair kit. I ordered mine from EESolutions.ca and it worked great. I'd recommend.

My roomba 530 cleans just great, but it will not return to the docking station--it just stops in the middle of the floor without any warning. I push the dock button, etc. to no avail.


I sometimes have the same problem with my Roomba 530 (named Ethel). Make sure the signal transmittor on the docking station and the signal receiver on the top of the Roomba are clean. You can use a cloth or paper towel with a SMALL amount of window cleaner to run around both of these signal devices. I also like to clean the metal contacts on the station and the corresponding contacts on the bottom of the Roomba at the same time. This won't make a difference for the docking but it just assures that the vacuum will charge efficiently. If this doesn't work, you might need to have the unit cleaned professionally unless you feel comfortable about taking the unit apart and cleaning it yourself. I did this and Ethel has worked fine ever since!
If this helps, please come back and rate my suggestion!

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.

Hey

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.

Have fun

Roomba 530 Nine beep error. I took off the front bumper and cleaned it throughly. Looks like itmay have to do with poor infrared emitters as they dim over time with getting older.


Nine beeps mean optical sensor unit/bumper actuator failure. Here's a link for you. Hope it helps....http://www.protechrobotics.com/proddetail.php?prod=245435775

Spins, stops and can't find dock


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.)
