Hello everybody!
Monitored the market for the purchase of a second-hand (probably broken) robot vacuum cleaner IRobot ROOMBA for further experiments with its hull but with its own MK.
I bought a used iRobot Roomba 4230, a complete set, even with a box, but without instructions. It was sold as firewood, marked with spare parts morose,. According to the seller: works, but every 5 minutes stops with an error, if you press the button IRobot ROOMBA, it will continue to work, (again for 5 minutes), and so endlessly. After the home tests, the seller's words were confirmed. morose,
Googled IRobot ROOMBA, conducted self-tests as described here:
As a result, lucky, he earned as follows:. Or not, because the subject for experiments  ROOMBA now have to look for a new one. The reason IRobot was a strong clogging of the brush reducer, which led to heavy rotation, the robot ROOMBA gave an error ...
The former owner of IRobot ROOMBA has a cat, and he did not completely clean his campaign for a year.
The IRobot ROOMBA battery holds exactly 40 minutes, perhaps an hour, from end to end has not yet been tested.

Judging by the numerous reviews and videos IRobot ROOMBA (such as IRobot ROOMBA),IRobot ROOMBA should be carefully disassembled and cleaned, hair can be absolutely everywhere. This incl. Leads to a deterioration in the rotation of the IRobot ROOMBA reducers and, as a consequence, a faster discharge of the battery.

What did I want to ask, if I was going to disassemble IRobot ROOMBA, I needed something to sfotkat or measure IRobot ROOMBA inside the structure, mechanics? In general, everything there is very similar to the numerous materials posted on the Internet, there is nothing new like IRobot  

The battery of IRobot ROOMBA while I will train or look for a replacement, according to the former owner roomba, he lay half a year in the closet with the IRobot ROOMBA battery not disconnected.
The IRobot ROOMBA battery is clearly fooled, when discharged, it must turn off the brushes with a turbine and start looking for a base for recharging.
And I get it this way: he plows 40 minutes showing full charge IRobot ROOMBA, then the discharge indicator of IRobot ROOMBA sharply shows the full discharge, the robot starts to rush about in search of the base, usually not finding it next to a screaming cry for help falling asleep



I have almost a year living neato robot vacuum cleaner IRobot ROOMBA. IRobot ROOMBA with a laser rangefinder, he builds a map. In my 5-room apartment, I forgot when I vacuumed it with a manual vacuum cleaner ROOMBA. For this pleasure, I gave about $ 500 for IRobot ROOMBA

Lucky IRobot ROOMBA - for such a price :)
"Hair", well, well, I somehow tried to find a solution, and could not - a problem for the robot IRobot ROOMBA.

We need now, besides the charging base, another base for parsing and cleaning to do
Or make a robot Roomba cleaner that will dismantle the rubble and clean it.

Yesterday I cleaned Rumba, the error was gone: Yahoo !: IRobot ROOMB work became quieter and as it's more pleasant, in short I fell in love with him: friends:. In passing, I fixed something on the camera, I hope IRobot ROOMBA will be interesting and will be useful to you!
 IRobot Roomba 

Below are just a couple of basic in my opinion moments about IRobot ROOMBA.

The expected dirt, I did not find, and its judging by the video on the network should have been really very much. But the hair on everything that turns really was a lot.
IRobot ROOMBA problem
In a detailed study and opening of the Rumba 4230, it was found that the garbage collection container of IRobot ROOMBA is divided into 2 sectors: the first and largest only for dirt collected by brushes, and the second one is quite small with a mud filter for a IRobot Roomba  suction turbine. The  IRobot Roomba turbine itself turned out to be very small in size and was built into the removable garbage bin itself, thereby eliminating the additional cracks between the  IRobot Roomba  container and the  IRobot Roomba  turbine. The main focus of the "collection" of garbage lies on the brushes of IRobot ROOMBA, the turbine collects small residues.

Classic (as written in the  IRobot Roomba forums)  IRobot Roomba  mechanism of suspension of brushes for roomba. The roombas's motor itself is not fastened rigidly, but is fixed between two IRobot Roomba   bearings and freely rotates along its axis. When the brushes of irobot roomba get stuck or get hooked and the  IRobot Roomba  motor shaft stops rotating, the motor starts to spin: shock: winding this thread on itself and thereby lifting the  IRobot Roomba  brush mechanism from the floor, removing them from engagement with the surface: shock:: shock:
irobot roomba is cool!

The quality of cleaning is very like! From my floor (laminate, in the kitchen linoleum) is going very well. IRobot Roomba 
According to experience: usually we try to clean once a week, if at the weekend to clean up, then up to the next weekend (2 weeks), the laminate can be covered with a thin layer of dust (on the dark can be seen), behind the door and the sofa can lie ala "roll-field." 
In the room there is a carpet with a low hard pile. In its manual vacuuming is not difficult, but with it to collect the hair of his wife, they go for a brush, but do not suck, pile them up, you have to specially brush the vacuum cleaner or bend and shove hands. After harvesting, his pile rises slightly and he becomes so fluffy.  IRobot Roomba 
This Sunday he was cleaning (the robot
irobot roomba) alone, dust collected a full   IRobot Roomba container for ~ 35 minutes, then a  IRobot Roomba battery was found: sorry:. On the pile of the carpet, it is noticeable that the carpet was carved along and across, there was a bit of sawdust on the carpet (I'm now carpentry on the balcony and sawdust rushes from foot to foot all over the apartment), I did not look at my hair, but I probably again on all my gearboxes, he does it perfectly. The corridor is not big  IRobot Roomba , I went to the kitchen and I woke up a little there and died near the sink, I probably wanted to drink. : O: Yesterday afternoon, irobot roomba again cleaned the program, the container is clean. 
If I bought
irobot roombafor 15 pieces, then probably another would be evaluated. He certainly will not replace his big brother, he will not go into the door, the sofa will not move, but the assistant irobot roomba is good.
You need to search for a replacement  IRobot Roomba :
•  IRobot Roomba  Battery type: NiMh
•  IRobot Roomba  voltage: 14.4V
•  IRobot Roomba Battery capacity: 2400 mAh.

The Rumba 780 costs a maximum of $ 550. But I bought  IRobot Roomba in Germany, at the expense of Taya I do not know.  IRobot Roomba  Go around the furniture legs, step over the sill and go on the carpet for him at all no problem. And unlike the housekeeper does not whine and does not wish you mentally "good".

 IRobot Roomba 

Much better than Rumba in practice was the Neato vacuum cleaner, which has real navigation, and does not run around the room chaotically. The only drawback, due to the real suction power, rumbles more strongly Rumba  IRobot Roomba , but since the work is programmed during the absence of people at home, this minus It comes down to nothing. I used both vacuum cleaners, as a result,  IRobot Roomba gave it to my parents.

irobot roomba suck!

Actually, I bought myself a subject, model 560. If anyone has any questions, ask, I'll try to answer.

While the first evening is working, there is at once a positive and negative about
irobot roomba.
Positive about
irobot roomba:
Really does not get stuck almost,  IRobot Roomba by some miracle passes over, even entangled and scattered where popodja, and, that the most surprising - he besides vacuums. And still quite successfully gets on all sorts of obstacles such as rapids and other things.

Minuses: of 
irobot roomba
Wraps up all possible parts of a frightening amount of hair. I hope that with daily hair work will be less =) But cleaning is easy.
When you try to call on an unclosed carpet from the side "visyulek" - a carpet rattles.  IRobot Roomba 
Most of all - I have some problems with CHM - cleaning module
irobot roomba with brushes. For some reason  in irobot roomba, the plastic protection of  IRobot Roomba bearings from dust actively rubs against the wall, wiping plastic, melting it and preventing the motor from turning the brushes. As it turns out - it's mass, but usually the people with the bearings themselves have something wrong. The people are selling a set of steel sealed bearings to replace those that stand there, then you can then still have to put in  IRobot Roomba 

But so far the impression of
irobot roomba is a fortune. The  IRobot Roomba  base is surprisingly successful, the floor covers everything. Then I'll probably say more =)
