The robot dirt tray has a vacuum motor to assist the dirt flow from the floor brushes. Yours is not working. recheck the connections on the dirt tray.

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

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.

Roomba appears to be working fine, goes over the whole house with no trouble, but then house is still dirty and no dirt is in his dirt bin.


if there is dust in the filter and none in dirt bin check to see if brushes are turning, you can do this by running the roomba with bin out, if not turning clean thoroughly, remove yellow tips on ends to check for trapped hair, replace brushes and turn them manually in one direction a few times and then run roomba again, you may need to do this a couple of times

Irobot stops after a few minutes and says plaes


soooo, what is not understood here ?
turn it over, open brushes cage, take each brush out and clean it.
In addition, also clean the sides from any dirt/hair that may stuck in its pivots.
good luck

Roomba dirt in filter but NOT in bin


possibly the vacuum fan is plugged up or not spinning fast enough to pick up heavier items. disassemble the back canister and clean the fan chamber.(THis is one area of regular maintenance). if it is all clean then try to replace the motor. The other possiblity... You have one damn clean house. :)

IRobot Roomba Dirt Dog sounds weak and stops


Generally the unit will beep or play the "uh-oh" tone or do something. I wish I could tell you what's going on with this Dirt Dog, but it's not communicating the problem. The best thing to do would be to give us a call when you have the robot with you. That will enable us to do any necessary troubleshooting as well as set up any orders that might be necessary. We're here M-F, 9a-7p, and Saturdays 9-6, EST. 1-877-855-8593 Look forward to hearing from you!

New Roomba 560 beep twice, ask to clean brushes, but no dirt


your roomba is thinking that you need to clean the brushes. if too much load it put on your brush motor--the unit will think that something is wrapped around the brush and slowing down the motor. if you have cleaned your brush and are sure that is not the problem; you need to look for anything else that could be slowing down the brush/motor. If this is inconclusive you need to put your roomba into diagnostic mode by following the procedures in the link below http://swiftracer.com/index.php?myPage=RoombaDiagnosticMode.php

Brushes not spinning....


My status light came on, the vac beeped twice and stopped. I noticed my brushes weren't spinning. I took an eyeglass screwdriver and took off the center screw that holds on the brushes. I cleaned the shaft that the brushes spin on. replaced brushes and it works great! I just did this now and it is still running. my status light problem is fixed my roomba is 4 years old and I am on my 2nd battery. Seems to have fixed the problem. FYI it was wrapped with hair, dirt and it was greasy.
