My iRobot Roomba 560 starts spinning sporadically during the cleaning, and after over 3 minutes it complete stops and beeps 9 times. It is necessary to turn it on until it decides to work properly, and keep waiting for the next time the same failure will occur. I tried to reset it, and I have all the dust removed including from the bumper and sensors.
It's the bumper. Blow it out with compressed air and clean the cliff sensors. If you still get the 9-beep error, call support. ... iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum

I bought a roomba pro elite robotic floorvac at a tag sale from an elderly couple who apparently used this vac very little as it was very clean and she had never even used it enough to use the extra filters that came with it, she said it was just too much for her to bend down to work it or move it. i suspect she stored it but kept the battery in it. after charging it, it powers up and sings a little tune, but then shuts off. i cleaned everything, including the sensors. it still shuts off, do you

My robot will not charge. Tried multiple resets and new battery from irobot.com (both suggested by Irobot customer service) but got nowhere. The vacuum did work for a short time (until the new partially charged battery ran out). If I bypass the internal charging circuits and charge directly from the charger (with jumpers) the robot seems to work fine. Unfortunatey, there is no mechanism to turn off the charge cycle, so this is not practical.

I have an eye vac professional that will not stay on to **** up the dirt. There is power to the outlet and the blue on/off light does stay on, but in Auto mode if I stick my hand near the dirt sensor it just pulses on and off. I can feel the suction, but it won't stay on. I've unplugged it, removed the dirt bin and filters and nothing works. Help!!!! This is brand new and I've only emptied the collection bin once and it hasn't worked since.

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?

I have a remote Hunter Ceiling Fan w/ remote 1-2-3 fan speed buttons and one on/off/dimmer light button. Model Number CP-9110R. It only has one pull string and it is for the light. I would like convert the light to work off of a simple wall on/off switch and the fan to be controlled by a 3-speed pull string. Can I by-pass all the sensors and make it work?
I see noone has answered so I will.Yes,it could be done,but if there is not a conversion kit for your fan,it would not be wise to do it.For starters,all of the things required would probably cost at least $15.Also,there is at least one tool you would ... Vacuums
The problem is that the cleaner is heavy to use and does not pull itself forward as it should. It has been back to the supplier 3 times but they have not fixed the problem. The LED's on the front flicker and I think it may be a problem with the sensor. If you have any info. on how the sensor works and where it is located it would be useful as well as any other suggestions to fix the problem please.
If it heavy then do some muscle work and body building ... Vacuums
