Error C510 In Roomba
Error C510 is one of the many error codes that the Roomba J series robot vacuums.
It indicates a problem with their operation: its vacuum motor.
However, if the sensor does not detect a good connection, it will display error C510 on the robot’s screen.
Further, it says, “Please check that the vacuum bin is installed correctly“.
This error means that either the vacuum bin is not securely attached to the robot.
Contrarily, it means there is something wrong with the sensor or the connection to the base station.
How To Fix C510 Error In Roomba?
The error C510 prevents the robot from cleaning or emptying its bin properly.
Here are some possible fixes to this error:
1. Remove Vacuum Bin
Remove the vacuum bin from the robot by pressing the bin release button on the back of the robot.
Thus, this will detach the bin from the robot and allow you to inspect it for any problems.
2. Check For Any Debris Or Damage
Check for any debris or damage on the bin, the sensor, or the connection port. Clean them with a soft cloth if needed.
Sometimes, dust or dirt can block the sensor or connection port and cause a false error.
Therefore, you can use a soft cloth to wipe them clean gently.
Further, you should check for any cracks or dents on the bin that might affect its fit or function.
3. Reinstall The Vacuum
Reinstall the vacuum bin by sliding it into the bin slot until it clicks into place.
Thus, you need to attach it firmly to the robot. This will reconnect the bin to the robot and the sensor.
You will hear a click sound after you attach the bin securely.
Additionally, you can wiggle the bin slightly to ensure it is not loose.
4. Restart The Vaccum
Press the button on the top of the robot to restart it. This will clear the error code and resume the cleaning cycle.
If the error is fixed, you should see a green light on the robot’s screen and hear a voice saying “Ready to clean”.
The Bottom Line
You need to check the vacuum motor for any debris or damage that may be blocking or affecting its performance.
Further, gently use a soft brush or cloth to clean the motor and surrounding area.
In contrast, keep on updating the Roomba’s software by connecting it to the iRobot Home app and following the instructions on the screen.
