Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum ?

Turns in circles, acts like it hits a virtual wall then stops

\015 My roomba has a new battery. When I got the battery two weeks ago I thought I had solved my problems. But after 2 weeks it is doing the same thing again: not running in straight lines, just circles. Then once it is done circling it starts going straight for about 12 inches then makes a turn as if it came up on a virtual wall (which it did not, I checked) then circled some more then just shut down with the little song and the power button blinked red.Is there any way to hit the reboot on this discovery 400 series?\015

Answers :

Reboot is probably not your solution. Your Roomba will react to invisible signals or 'interference' from other electrical appliances as well as the invisible wall boxes. You can clearly see how this happens when a Roomba gets near your computer or other device that is on. Also, the Roomba will go in circles when the dirt chamber is full or it thinks it's full. Try a thorough clean of all major parts including the brushes. Sometimes this activity will occur when the brushes get snarled on thread or carpet fibers.

Stops Immediately. We have a Beam Serenity model 2100 installed in the home and when the hose is inserted into the wall it turns on for a few seconds and then shuts off on it's own. Turning the handle's power switch off/on restarts the unit only to have it once again stop after a few more seconds. The canaster is clean. What could be causing this stopping issue? Thanks.


The Relay Control Board in the 2100 is bad. Replace and it should work just fine. ... Beam Industries 2900 Serenity Plus Central System Vacuum

I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice? I really like this vacuum and would really like to fix it rather than replace it!

Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again. Sometimes is gets so stuck from moving forward at all, like it is stuck in one spot just trying to go while seemingly surrounded by barriers. Somet

The brushes spin very, very slowly and stop altogether sometimes - like they just don't have any power behind them.I've cleaned the brushes and also turned it on without the brushes inside to see if the female plug that the brushes go into turns - it does, but not very fast. My husband said he thought he smelled something - like burning. Is there a way to take the underside cover off and clean something?

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.

Try a different battery. If no go, you might have bad board or sensors. Basically, if the battery replacement doesn't fix it, get rid of it. Borrow a battery from someone else so you're not wasting your money for testing.\015\012\015\012-=/ Daf ... iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum

The brush roller stops turning and I can smell the belt burning, then it will catch and start working normal. I looked under the plate to check the belts and they looked okay and no hang ups of string or anything. The only thing that seemed weird was that the smaller belt that actually attaches and turns the roller is a bit loose. The larger belt is tight but looks like its the one that is burning and causing the smell.


Better to replace both belts the smaller one is stretched out thats whyits slipping ,be sure to clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing the belts.it will cause the new belts to run unevevly and go bad before their time ...

Hoover U6637-960 the self propel is not not working. When lowering the handle it acts like it would like to work but the roller will not turn. appears to be something to do with the self propel part of the handle . took the screws aout but can not get it apart. Is there another belt of something in there?


This vac has 2 belts. If both self propel and roller not spinning then most likely it is the wide flat belt broken or off. 4 screws on the bottom should gain you access to the belt area. another issue for this model series is a worn pulley on the rol ...

My Discovery 4210 Roomba will run normally for about 20 minutes on a smooth, wooden floor. It then begins the following sequence: run forward a few inches, turn in a tight counter-clockwise circle a few revolutions, stop, power off a few seconds, power up, repeat cycle from forward run. The sequence can be repeated seemingly endlessly if I don't turn off the power manually. I've replaced the motor, and led revolution sensor system on the left drive wheel.

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.
