Roomba vacuum cleaner 6 BEEPS after the “uh-oh” sound

Cause:

The 6 beeps error can be caused due to two major reasons.

Solution:

Just like causes, there are two possible ways to resolve this issue depending upon its causes.

  1. Pick up the Roomba vacuum cleaner and move it upside down. Look for obstruction or something that is causing the wheels to hang out. Remove that obstruction and move wheels in and out to ensure that they are now seated perfectly into the cleaner’s body.
  2. Check the cleaning area to remove all obstacles that Roomba vacuum cleaners can drive over. Removing them will ensure that the robot has an even surface and it will not be stuck or the wheels will not hang out while cleaning.
