If you want to quickly resolve doubts, we recommend you contact the official iRobot technical service. In Spain they offer assistance over the Internet and by phone, so you can rest easy. In any case, we suggest you follow these steps:

1. Access the official iRobot website in Spain and go to the Assistance section (here you have the direct link). The first thing they will ask you on this page is a little information about the robot model that you have at home. You just have to unfold the tab to choose it. You will also need to indicate when you bought or received your Roomba.

2. They will ask you if the Roomba has given you an error message. Indicate yes or no, as the case may be. If you choose yes, you will have to point out one of the proposed errors. If not, you will have to indicate what problem you have and you can choose from any of the following: Broken filter cover, Broken side brush, Rolling wheel, Roomba makes a loud click or sound or the Side Brush does not rotate.


3. The system will take care of making a diagnosis and will tell you what you can do to replace each part. Keep in mind that in a device like Roomba, the solution is most likely within your reach. In fact, some parts will still be covered under warranty, so iRobot will send them directly to your home.

You will have to enter name, surname, address, city, postal code, country, telephone number and email address. You will also have to enter the serial number of the robot (turn the Roomba over and remove the deposit to find the code on a label) and attach the proof of purchase.

Contact the official Roomba technical service by phone

But if you have doubts about what is really happening to your Roomba, the diagnostic system may not work for you at all. In this case, it is best to call the technical service. The phone number from which they will assist you is 91 769 95 19 .
