iRobot Roomba 500 Series
Cleaning Pattern
Roomba is a robot that cleans floors differently than the way most people
clean their floors. Roomba uses its robot intelligence to efficiently clean the
whole floor, under and around furniture and along walls.
Roomba calculates the optimal cleaning path as it cleans and determines
when to use its various cleaning behaviors:
Spiraling: Roomba uses
a spiral motion to clean a
concentrated area.
Wall Following: Roomba
uses this technique to clean
the full perimeter of the
room and navigate around
furniture and obstacles.
Room Crossing: Roomba
crisscrosses the room
to ensure full cleaning
coverage.
Dirt Detection: When
Roomba senses dirt, the
blue Dirt Detect™ light is lit
and Roomba cleans more
intensely in that area.
Cleaning Modes: While cleaning, Roomba automatically calculates the room
size and adjusts its cleaning time appropriately.
Spot Mode: Roomba will spiral approximately 3 feet in diameter and then
spiral back to where it started, intensely cleaning a localized area.
TIP: R
oomba takes approximately 25 minutes to clean an average room and
will pass over the same area of the floor multiple times to ensure total
floor coverage.
TIP: F
or most efficient cleaning, clear your floor of clutter and use a Virtual Wall
to confine Roomba to one room.

7
Cleaning System
Roomba features a patented three-stage cleaning system.
Filter
1 Side brush sweeps
along edge of walls
and into corners.
2 Two counter-
rotating brushes
scoop up dirt,
hair, and debris
into the bin.
3 Powerful vacuum picks up the
remaining fine particles, dirt, and
hair. The filter traps dust and
small particles.
Floor Surfaces
Roomba works on wood, carpet, tile, vinyl, and linoleum, and adjusts
automatically to different floor types.
Roomba automatically senses stairs and other cliffs. Roomba might stall
when confronting rounded edges and might slide over particularly slippery
surfaces. Extremely dark-colored floors may contribute to Roomba’s sensors
working less effectively.
Anti-tangle system
Roomba won’t get stuck on cords, carpet fringe or tassels. When Roomba
senses it has picked up a cord or tassel, it will automatically stop its main
brushes or side brush and try to escape. Roomba may make a clicking noise
when anti-tangle is activated.
8
iRobot Roomba 500 Series
Cleaning Modes
Roomba will clean based on the cleaning mode you select. Roomba has three
cleaning modes.
Clean Mode (all models)
Roomba automatically calculates the room size and adjusts its cleaning time
appropriately.
Spot Mode (all models)
Roomba will spiral approximately three feet in diameter and then spiral back
to where it started, intensely cleaning a localized area.
Scheduled Cleaning Mode (Models 550 and above)
When a future cleaning time is programmed, Roomba enters Scheduled
Cleaning Mode. When scheduled to clean, Roomba will occasionally flash
its next cleaning time to remind you of its schedule. At the specified time,
Roomba leaves its Home Base, cleans, and then returns to the Home Base to
recharge when it’s done.
For more detailed information, visit: www.irobot.com
9
Battery Storage and Charging
Roomba is powered by a rechargeable battery. Roomba’s battery can last for
hundreds of cleaning cycles before a replacement is necessary.
Battery Life
To extend the battery life, iRobot recommends always storing Roomba
plugged in. For more details on how to maintain Roomba’s battery life,
visit www.irobot.com.
Tip: If Roomba’s battery is warm, Roomba will wait for the battery to cool down before beginning a charge cycle.
Tip: For long-term storage, iRobot recommends that the battery be fully charged and then removed from the robot and stored in a cool, dry place.
Cleaning Time
You should fully charge Roomba’s battery before each cleaning cycle. When
fully charged, Roomba’s battery will last for at least one full clean cycle.
16-Hour Refresh Charge
If Roomba has been left off the Home Base/charger for an extended period,
Roomba will initiate a special 16-hour charge cycle. This extensive charge
refreshes Roomba’s battery and extends the battery life. While charging,
Roomba’s Clean light button will pulse quickly. Note: For best results, do not
interrupt this Refresh Charge.
TIP: F
or best performance, charge Roomba’s battery overnight before using
Roomba for the first time. Always leave the battery inside Roomba with
Roomba plugged in or on the Home Base.
10
iRobot Roomba 500 Series
Charging Roomba
Charge Roomba in one of two ways:
Or

Virtual Walls®
(included with Models 510 - 530)
The iRobot Roomba Virtual Walls create an invisible barrier that Roomba will
not cross. This invisible barrier can be used to confine Roomba to a particular
room or area, and prevent it from getting too close to electrical or computer
cords, delicate objects on the floor, etc.
The Virtual Walls can be set to block an area up to eight feet long or longer, in
three-step increments: 0-3 ft., 4-7 ft., 8+ ft. Note that the width of the Virtual
Walls’ beam also increases as its length increases, creating a cone-shaped
area which Roomba cannot pass. The Virtual Wall also creates a halo of
protection around itself, preventing Roomba from getting too close.
Battery Installation
The Virtual Wall requires two “D”
alkaline batteries and
automatically shuts off after 135
minutes. If the power light blinks
green, the batteries will soon
need
to be replaced.
Range Adjustment
Use the slider bar to adjust
the length of the barrier. A
longer range will drain the
battery faster.

TIP: In Virtual Wall mode, iRobot recommends setting up the Virtual Wall
Lighthouse behind the door jamb as shown on pg. 12.
TIP: D
on’t manually move Roomba while it is cleaning. Avoid placing
Lighthouses or Virtual Walls too close to each other, the Home Base or
furniture that could block the beams. Doing so could prevent Roomba from
recognizing the Lighthouses or returning to the Home Base.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why does Roomba’s Side Brush occasionally spin backwards?
When caught on items such as carpet tassels or wires, the Side Brush may
spin slowly or briefly spin backwards to free itself. This may also occur on
thick or high-pile carpets. If this behavior should occur on hard floor surfaces
or when no tassels or wires are present, the Side Brush should be cleaned.
Using a small Philips head screwdriver, first remove the screw from the center
of the Side Brush. Next remove the Side Brush and thoroughly clean any hair
or debris that is wrapped around the shaft. Then reinstall the Side Brush and
Side Brush screw.
Why does Roomba occasionally make a thumping sound?
When Roomba’s brushes encounter items such as carpet tassels or wires,
the brushes will briefly reverse direction to get free. This action causes a
thumping sound that can be heard approximately once per second until the
brushes are free from obstruction. If Roomba makes a thumping sound when
no tassels or wires are present, the main brushes should be cleaned as
described on page 21.
Why doesn’t Roomba slow down as it approaches certain obstacles?
Roomba uses its Light Touch Bumper technology to identify walls and other
obstacles, allowing it to slow down and gently touch the obstacle with its
bumper before changing direction. Roomba may be less effective at sensing
and slowing down for extremely dark or black surfaces, or for objects that are
less than two inches wide.
