Roomba repair service in the UK

Postby jujuh » November 14th, 2017, 9:15 am

Does anyone know of a repair service for the roombas? I have a 560 with the following faults;

no dirt detect light during the tests
faulty inner and outer light touch sensors
IR front not side working

I've had the IR emitter and reciver replaced, as per here

but I'm looking for an expert to fix it and get it ready for all the vsitors around Christmas.

Can anyone suggest / help me?

I have read your post and this is what I can tell you about your bot.
1. The light touch sensor BIT doesn't activate if a bumper sensor is activated either by pressing the bumper or by a bad bumper sensor emitter or receiver. BIT 2 will tell you which sensor, maybe both, is bad. Left bumper pressed, SPOT illuminates, right, DOCK illuminates.
Report you findings on BIT 2.
2. Take a dry toothbrush and clean off the dirt detect sensor. I tap it lightly with a small screwdriver during BIT 17.
