If your Roomba® i Series Robot Vacuum is not turning on or is not able to charge, rebooting your robot tends to solve most related issues.

To wake up Roomba, press CLEAN once. Roomba will beep and the CLEAN button will illuminate. To start a cleaning cycle, press CLEAN again. » Roomba cleans an entire level of your home during one cleaning cycle. » If its battery gets low before finishing, Roomba returns to the Home Base to recharge.
Button 1 (to the left of center) is marked with a single dot (•). If held for ten seconds, the robot will go into “standby” mode, keeping its charging circuitry active, and continuing to power the payload. The robot can be placed on the dock to charge or to keep the payload alive in this mode.

Charging time under normal conditions is at least 2 hours. For best results, use only the battery type compatible with your robot and ensure that it is an authentic iRobot Lithium Ion/NiMH battery that comes with Roomba or purchased from iRobot authorized dealers.

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.

ANSWER : 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. .

Hi, the main box where all the wires connect to the sensor has the power on, and i’ve just noticed the small box where you enter the code to set the alarm does not work, yet the buttons are illuminated, normally the led light displays to show the power but no led’s are on, the buttons doesn’t work to set the alarm. Can you please hepl, many thanks.
ANSWER : Difficult as you didn’t say what the equipment is but it sounds like there is a problem with communication between the main box and the keypad box. Have someone check that all the wires in the keypad are connected and there is no break in one of the wires. There are normally 6 connections, +ve and -ve, 2 serial connections and 2 tamper.If all the connections are ok try removing all power including the battery from the main box and reconnecting. Make sure you know all your codes including the installer code before you do this.Note if you do undo the small box the alarm may well go off!
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

EVERYTIME I PUSH THE BUTTON REALLY LOW TO ALLOW THOROUGH CLEANING IN THE CARPET, THE LIGHT DOESN’T TURN ON AND IT DOESN,T **** THE DIRT AT ALL.. IT ONLY WORKS IF YOU PRESS IT UP ONCE BUT IT DOESN’T GET ALL THE DIRT AND ESPECIALLY HAIRS.. WHAT HELP CAN YOU GIVE ME? THANKS
ANSWER : You need to replace the belt whenever the green brush indicator light goes out or is not steady. Be sure to observe the wear settings when re-installing the brush. The ends of the brush are marked with 1, 2, or 3 notches and numbers. In normal use the brush should have setting # 1 towards the rug. These settings adjust the brush for wear, and moving the bristles out prematurely will result in excess brush and belt wear.

ANSWER : If it do not work …and you already are on the second one that behaved in the same way it may be a problem with the power in your place and the cause it may be the main fuse…Im not sure where is located in this model but it has to be near the power cord entry …Anyway ..to check the power flow you have to open it without breaking the power flow …and than plug int and push the start ..and with a power checker (screwdriver like that checks the presence of the electric power ) or a voltmeter ..or other measurement device …check the power flow from the entry to the motor…..this way you will see if the power is present …if all seam to be ok ..even at the contact point at the motor…it means that this is damaged …and for electric motors the usually damage are the coil magnetos …
