My roomba won't go forward; it just rotates right ~90 degrees and then left ~90 degrees. I've cleaned the brushes, taken it apart and cleaned the brush gears, popped off the front wheel and cleaned the hair off that, taken off the front bumper panel and cleaned off the cliff sensors. Please help!

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

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

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.

SEBO Sensors Where are the SEBO X4 sensors, I have taken this apart and not too sure where the sensors are. In particular I get Replace Roller coming up, but roller seems fine and it goes round ok if I disconnect the PCB. My unit turns on spins for 10 seconds and then brings on light C. Just replaced the motor on it about 4 months ago so not too keen to get a new one. Any help welcome.

I Have two questions concerning my AIRVAC AV2500 Red Series Vacuum System. How do you replace the light in the floor power head sweeper and can you replace the permanent fabric filter? We had the system installed in 2004 and the light in the sweeper head just went out and can not find any manual on line on how to replace it. The filter if not torn but avter 6 years it probably needs some kine of cleaning or replaced even though it says permanent. Any help would be appreciated. Jim McCluskey

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

Does anyone have an idea why this machine's vacuum function no longer seems to work? I would appreciate any feedback. Jeremy
