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

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.

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

Stops I had my iRobot Roomba 530 in storage for 8 months. I didn't remove the battery. When I plugged it in to recharge it, it did recharge after several resets but it would not dock itself once it had finished. It kept trying but I had to turn it off and manually dock it but it now won't recharge at all. It is totally dead. What is the problem.

Roomba discovery My roomba comes off the charger and will go about a minute and a half. Then it will stop and beep once. i checked roombas sight and they said that the brushed need to be cleaned.

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!
Make sure you take off the little cap at the end (the one that spins -- just grab it and pull it straight off) and clean under it too. The rest of the brush may look perfectly clean but what happens is that hair gets stuck under spinning cap and, li ... iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum
Brushes won't fix back into holder without being forced, so Roomba clicks when it runs. It will only run a little while and then stop and say to clean Roomba's brushes.
It sounds like you didn't clean the bearings. On one end of each brush is a bearing, probably in a yellow housing. Pull the bearing off the axle, and you'll find it's full of hair underneath.Obviously, the brushes should turn freely and s ... Roomba Vacuums

My 400 series Discovery Roomba will no longer charge. It shows a green "charged" light, but when I hit clean, all lights/vacuum, etc just go out and it stops. Irobot says that the entire unit needs to be replaced, but it has to have something to do with the charging mechanism. Any Ideas? I've tried the system reset, and removing/replacing the battery. No effect. The robot doesn't give me the "uh-oh" beeps to be charged. It just stops and goes dead.

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 have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin out, and the brushes spin.... and it has much more power.... and is very clear it is working! But it's useless without the dust bin! LOL It's only 9 months old.... called customer service, but it was the one time it worked just fine! Of course, I thought I'd stop here first before calling again! Than
Ok, this is a "Brush Height Adjustment" issue. It will probably work great on a hard surface but on carpet the brushes bog. If you've taken the unit apart already...Sorry....do it again. When you do, you'll see a String which allows the brushes to " ... iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum
Vacuum stops My Wind Tunnel stops working in a very short time when using. It takes awhile for it turn back on. It still shuts off quick. I have cleaned the hoses and inside of the power brush. This doesn't correct problem. Delbert Briggs
Your thermal cutout is tripping. This only happens when the motor heat gets very high, and the reason it takes a while to turn back on is that the motor has to cool down before it will reset.
