Roomba 880 can no longer make it over room dividers

Postby Riddleofsteel » October 19th, 2018, 4:33 pm

My 880 besides seeming to the toughest time finding the dock, now can't make it over the saddle room dividers it used to have no problem with. Any ideas on if something internal got warn out I can replace, or tighten up? Makes it much less usable for my place if I have to move it manually room to room. Also notice it has a harder time docking as well, I find it most days out of juice near the docking station but not on it.

Your 880 probably needs a replacement battery.

Check the front wheel for wear. If it wears too much that lowers the front of your Roomba, your roomba bumper will hit the saddle divider instead of going over it. This may cause your Roomba to park at the home base.

It still cleans for a decent amount of time, wouldn't I see a big decline in that as well if the battery was weak?

Do they sell replacement wheels if that's the case?

With that additional info, I would suspect that TechGuy may have pointed out a possible issue with the front swivel wheel that can be replaced. You can find the wheel on iRobot, ebay, and Amaz,on
