Scheduled cleaning of the floor but not being able to vacuum all the space is an irritating thing to face. Finally, I got the answer and solution to this issue.
The reason for this behavior is that the window or bumper contains dust, Edge Clean not running, filth in sensors, dim lighting, or needs charging.
Here’s what you need to do to fix Roomba not vacuuming the entire floor:
- Clean the window or bumper.
- Activate the Edge Clean mode.
- Wipe grime from sensors.
- Adjust the lighting of the room.
- Charge the battery before use.
Although the solutions seem easy, you’ll get to the roots by knowing the procedure. Let Me Dive Into It!
Do These 5 Things To Fix Roomba Not Vacuuming Entire Floor!
If your Roomba fails to cover the entire floor including all the rooms in your home, then, it’s time to troubleshoot the issue. Try out the given methods:
Method #1: Cleaning Window/Bumper Properly
Starting from the base, you need to clean the debris from the communication window or bumper in the right way as it can cause issues to detect the floor map. Here’s the procedure:
Method #2: Turn On The Edge Clean
Sometimes the Edge Clean that is accidentally deactivated can cause the Roomba to not work and locate the map to vacuum the entire floor. To fix the bugs, simply follow the given steps to activate the system:
Method #3: Clean The Filthy Sensors
To track the path to cover the entire floor when vacuuming, the Roomba needs sensors to stay activated with no obstacles. But, if it grows dust on the surface, it might lose its direction and vacuum in a short span. Fix the bug by doing this:
After taking out the targeted parts from the Shark vacuum, you can either insert new parts or clean them to reinstall.
Do not use any kind of liquid solutions or water directly into the sensors as it can damage them.
Method #4: Setup Room’s Lighting
Another common reason why the Roomba can’t vacuum the entire floor is the lack of lighting which causes the device to not navigate properly and miss the coverage.
By changing the light or adding some lighting to your room, this issue can be resolved quickly. Just be sure all the rooms contain good lighting that is covered by the Roomba.
Method #5: Ensure The Battery Level Is Full
The Roomba might get stuck when it’s lacking the battery power to operate properly. Sometimes it waits for 40 minutes (at max) and if this doesn’t get charged in between, the device will automatically remove the original cleaning cycle.
Meaning you have to start the entire cleaning job over that’s the reason why it isn’t vacuuming the entire room or floor.
The simple way to fix the bug is to give the user access to the app to return to the previous cleaning cycle after getting fully recharged.
Empty the dust bin as it can cause Roomba to return to where it started and pause. And, it won’t solve until you clear the bin and press the CLEAN button to resume the settings.
The Roomba not vacuuming the entire floor issue is a frequent thing that happens due to silly reasons (which can be resolved). As you now know all the solutions, it’s your turn to fix the bug.
If the above methods don’t solve this error, then it’s best to contact iRobot support service or call an expert. Hope this guide seems handy and interesting at the same time!
