Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum ?

Roomba circles My Roomba circles for a few minutes, then beeps 9 times and stops. A red exclamation mark appears on the left hand side of the controls. If you persist in restarting it, eventually I have been asked to clear Roombas wheels. As far as I can see, there isn't anything blocking the wheels.


Answers :

Yes, this is known issue and if your bumper moves freely, you might be facing a sensor fault caused by poor quality of components.
Here is a guide to fix it

The Romba may be complaining about the wheel drop sensors rather than the wheels being blocked. To be thorough clean the 4 cliff sensors, the bump switch, the caster, caster axle, caster roattion sensor, and remove and vacuum or blow the dirt out of the left and right wheel assemblies to resovle the problem.
