Self-repair will VOID your warranty 2. It is MUCH harder to re-assemble a robot than to disassemble one 3. Always use eye protection goggles and a dust mask when attempting to fix a robot The Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner has made home cleaning much simpler and faster. Problems can still occur with your Roomba, especially if not cleaned regularly.
Below are a few relatively simple techniques for Roomba repair, that is, getting your little robotic domestic servant up and going again. The most common problem reported by Roomba owners is its battery. There may come a point when the unit will no longer seem able to hold a charge. Some people suggest resetting and cycling the unit, which is done by removing the battery, holding down its power button for 5 to 15 seconds, reinstalling the battery and charging the Roomba until the power light is green again.
Once this happens, keep the Roomba charging for an additional 72 hours, without interruption. Afterwards, the Roomba should be run continuously until the battery is completely exhausted. The process should then be repeated a couple more times, until an improvement is seen. If nothing happens, the unit owner will have to purchase a new battery. When this happens, it is recommended to clean the unit with compressed air. It starts then stops immediately, or just spins in place. Use compressed air, especially around the wheels and under the bumper, or tap the bumper with your hand.
If this does not solve the problem, another suggestion is to give the vacuum a firm push on top, directly above where the center wheel is situated. The problem could be that the center wheel near the front of the unit is not in its proper recessed position since the wheel is adaptable.
This Roomba repair method has worked for some. For detailed and illustrated instructions on disassembling your Roomba, see: Dissassembling Your Roomba Although the newer Roomba models are designed to work on different surfaces, it is still possible for the drive wheel to become stuck.

Clean this out and let the Roomba go. This Roomba repair should be able to get your little guy running again. The most logical solution would be to take out the brush rollers and remove all dirt, especially hair, which could be causing the mechanism to jam.
The belt should be stretched between the impeller shaft and the beater-bar. Once the cover is removed, take out the bar. On each end is a bearing assembly where lint, fuzz, string and other fibers can accumulate. This needs to be cleaned periodically. Other owners say that their Roomba gathers dirt in its filter but not in the bin. If this happens, you can disassemble the back canister and clean out the fan chamber.
You can also recheck the connections on the dirt tray. If you get 3 beeps, that means your vacuum motor is stalled. You can remove the grill from the back of the dustbin and check if the impeller the one that looks like a fan is not clogged with dirt and can turn easily. Afterward, try to run the robot with the bin on but the grill off so you can tell whether the vacuum impeller is spinning. You can also call customer support for assistance.
