Roomba opened freezer door, melted all

Postby Tellroombawot » May 11th, 2018, 6:33 pm

Came home to roomba stuck under freezer door, door opened a crack, all items melted. See no other instances online. Is this common? Any fixes?

Never reported before. Either raise or lower your freezer.

Interesting, no google issues either. Unusual to be a case with no precedent.

Sounds like your freezer isn't' shut properly. It takes a fair amount of pressure for me to open mine, for Roomba to open it - it would need to flap in the breeze.

I find it inconceivable that a Roomba could open a freezer door! Did you take a pic?

Roomba wanted air conditioning. It must have been hot that day.

I did not take a pic, as my first reaction was to clean up the mess. Upon restarting the roomba, I saw it start to kinda dig under the freezer/fridge doors and back out on the next go round, so I can see how it must have gotten caught backing out. No desire to replicate this, will just run roomba when I am home. Very clean freezer now.

I'd shim the freezer up 1/8" or so. I think it would take a pretty close fit to wedge under there just right to be able to pull it open. Shouldn't take much adjustment to eliminate this possibility.
