Roomba 500 virtual wall not working

\015 Hello, roomba 500 virtual walls/lighthouses not workingHad this problem 6 months ago when roomba was new but problem had since resolved itself. Recently they have completely stopped responding to roomba again. I have tried software reset and battery change. Roomba is kept clean, as are towers. Green LEDs on "towers" do SOMETIMES blink after inserting batteries but not always. I hope you can help and really appreciate it.\015\012\015\012regards\015\012Fergus Wallace, Italy\015

I bought Roomba 560 and love it. It didn?t come with a lighthouse so I bought one on Ebay. When I put the batteries in it the green light on top flashes 5 or 6 time very quick and then stops, it doesn?t flash after that. When placed in front of the Roomba in either mode, virtual wall or lighthouse it doesn?t direct the Roomba. The question is, is there a process to marry the two units together or do you think the lighthouse is defective? Thank you Gary

Suction, after cleaning every part/filter, is virtually non-existant, other than the motor (which works very well) when reassembled various times, I get a big 0 for performance. PO'd in Tx. DC-07 seemes to be a waste of my $$$$.


Hi,Did you dry the filter for 12 hours before reinstalling and giving a go? Most suction problems are from a blockage of some kind. The Dyson website seems to think it's the filter.Here is a website which has instructions on washin ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Roomba Schedular I have a Roomba Scheduler and it has worked great until recently. Suddenly it quit working. When it is charging the power light goes from red to green as it should, showing it is ready to use. When we turn it on to use, it will only go on for a few seconds then it shuts off like it is out of power. It is like it isn't really charged. Is there something I can try to make it work?


Let it charge for a full 24, or even 48 hours, regardless of the green light. If it still dies you probably need a new battery.. or worse. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

Roomba Discovery My Roomba Discovery seems to work fine, mechanically, but it no longer seems to collect any dust. (The collection bin remains empty after the Roomba has circulated around the floor for quite a while). The brush has been replaced and spins normally. Does anyone have an idea why this machine's vacuum function no longer seems to work? I would appreciate any feedback. Jeremy


Did you replace the filter? when you remove the dust bin there is a small filter that needs to be cleaned, or replaced. You can buy a maintenance kit that replaces the brushes and filters as well, its good to replace them all regularly ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

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


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 ot ... iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum

I was vacuuming and the power abruptly stopped working. The plug had slightly slid out of the wall socket, but when I put it back in, it wouldn't power up again. The wall socket is working for other appliances.


The first thing to suspect is that the wall plug on the vacuum cleaner is defective, to confirm this you will need to access the on/off switch on the vacuum, there will be three wires coming to the switch from the cord ... Hoover S1361 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5


Dave you are correct. You should never over-charge anything like a Roomba, Cel Phone, etc. That will kill a bettery very quickly. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire across the brown wires flicked the wall switch and it worked, aha i thought faulty switch aquired a new one to no avail and now even the short piece of wire trick doesnt work, has the motor died do you think, it wasnt over heating or making strange noises prior to refusing to work


It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the ca ... Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

For my roomba 540 the dock station light is on. To dock the roomba goes towards the dock but when it reaches the dock tries to find the metal contacts, goes over them but is unable to dock. It used to dock fine. I did open the roomba to check its battery but I think it still worked after I opened it.

I have a Roomba 560 (it's still in warranty !!) and, after my summer vacation, it has a problem. When I'm charging Roomba, the orange light blinks (and this is normal!) but this orange blinking continues forever.... the light doesn't change to green. If I detach Roomba from the charger, the light become green and it works normally until the light changes to red and I have to charge it again. WHY, DURING THE CHARGING PHASE, THE LIGHT DOESN'T CHANGE FROM ORANGE-BLINKING TO GREEN? HAVE I


The problem is not with the charger itself but it is with the battery inside the Roomba. It sunds like one or more of the cells has gone bad so its not holding the same charge as it did. I would recomend sending it in while the warranty is still vali ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

Doesn't work Our home was built and finished in August 07.  The central vac doesn't work.  There is supposed to be a slot that opens in the kitchen where you sweep the dust and it sucks it up.  Also, the mounted unit on the garage wall has a hose that goes up into the house but there is a hole open at the bottom of the unit.  Where can I get someone to help us?  Or, is there an installation manual I can download to see if the builder did it properly.  He stole our solar heater for our pool and s

Shut off The vacuum cleaner was working just fine until it just shut off!! I tried a different wall outlet but still won't work!! Called Hoover and they just want you to bring it in and pay for repairs!! Seems like it should be simple...Anyone who can help?


From your description, you problem sounds like it could be an electrial one, not very hard to diagnose, but some dis-assembly is required. you would have to remove the hood, motor cover, turbine just to get to the motor. I would check the carbon brus ... Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum

My roomba 560 works perfectly for a year. Now works ok, vacuum but the dust stays at the bruches and at the bin. i replace the filter but nothing. Thanks George


You need to decide if the vacuum and brushes are runing or not. For me its easy to determine after its run. If the brushed turn then I have debris in the open part of the collection bin when I pull it off the back, but none if the brushes don't turn. ... iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum
