20 Most Recent Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum Questions & Answers

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.

Try to clean the metal contacts in the dock and in the roomba.
If you have a multimeter, measure the DC voltage on the dock contacts. If it's around zero volts, then you have a faulty dock.

Hope it helped.

Check to see if the "spot" indicator (blue light) is on, that happens when it detects a change in color or patterns and then it goes into a routine of a "flower" pattern, but then moves on at normal speed. As to the incomplete circling of a furniture leg....it's really a random path it follows, Roombas are still the "version one" of robotic vacuums.

you should not make your own battery and use it with roomba, or try charging it with a charger not meant for roomba, i suggest you buy the APS battery on ebay for $30 - $40. and buy a new charger from the company for $30. You can do some serious damage to the motherboard on the robot and your roomba might not work at all after that.

It is possible for the charging system inside the roomba to call it quits. What I did to remedy this, since my roomba was out of warranty and I did not want to scrap it, was to buy a charging base on ebay. This charging base accepts different types of roomba batteries and even the scooba battery. The inconvenience is if you have a newer model roomba that has the battery inside, then you will need to remove the screws on the bottom plate to remove the battery. Hope this helps.

I was having the same problem. Roomba would run for 30 seconds and then stop. I tried everything -- then I took the small rubber brush out and removed the small nut at the end. It was packed with dust to the point that it could not turn easily. I cleaned it out and now it is working like a champ. I think the automatic shut down was just a sign that there was too much strain to turn the brushes.

Roomba 500 Series have a serious problem with hair and other fibers working their way into the drive gears. The resulting resistance in the drivetrain is interpreted by the machine as overloaded brushes. People who experience this problem should complain to iRobot technical support. If the machine was purchase less than a year ago, they should ship a replacement assembly to you at no charge.
