Having problems with your iRobot Roomba Discovery SE Bagless Robotic Vacuum ?

It runs mostly backwards, and in circles and will push itself up

\015 My battery would only run the roomba for a few minutes, so I ordered another. When I installed and charged it and tried to use it, the trouble began. The seller that I bought the battery from said that the battery was not connecting and to push it in really hard. I tried that, and it worked a couple of times. I tried putting the old battery back in, and it would work a couple of times, then start the backward movement and circles. I've tried cleaning everything and blowing out the sensors with compressed air.\015

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. I've blown the dust out of everywhere. A

Hello, I got a used Kirby Sentria. When I run the vaccum and push and pull on the handle, I can hearing a friction type noise. I got up close to the vaccum and it is not the wheels or roller. It is coming from the base of the handle. It's like it is pushing on something on the vaccum body and is creating the noise. Maybe transmission? Is this normal, or is it something I should be concerned about? Thanks for your help!

I just bought a Tfal Ultimate Autoclean iron FV 9450. I am reading through the manual and trying to figure out all the parts and functions. I cannot figure out how to remove the anti calc valve. I see it is part # 12 on the drawing but that piece on my iron (the bit with the little circles on it where it says, " anti calc plus') seems to be a flat piece of integrated plastic with no give or slide to it. .I cannot see how I'd possibly remove it.

REMOTE CONTROL IS MALFUNCTIONING & NOT TURNING ON CUSHION - Hello. I bought a used (by near new) Shiatsu+ Massaging Cushion from Ebay. When I installed it today the remote control was faulty. When you push the Power button, the blue light comes on, but none of the other buttons work. When you push the Power button again to turn it off, it clicks & turns itself back on again. So it's running but nothing is happening in the massage cushion. I did see a card in the box saying "For the Shiatsu

My Dyson DC07 vacuum started to run slower after being on for a little while and then would run normally again. I have switched on today and it has just stopped. When I push the start button, on occasions it almost starts and then doesn't. I am wondering if there is a problem with the switch and if so how can it be fixed? Thankyou.

The motor running slower was the motor starting to burn out. The "almost start" is the brushes making intermittent contact with the armature in the motor. \015\012\015\012Your machine needs a new motor Pam. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

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.
