If you only hear one beep, your Roomba may be stuck somewhere or one of its side wheels may be dangling.
Now, move your Roomba and activate the cleaning mode by pressing the ‘CLEAN‘ button. You now need to inspect your Roomba’s side wheels. Check the wheel for any obstructions, such as hair that has been lodged. To make sure the wheels are clean, you may accomplish this by moving them back and forth.

3. Five Beep or Error 5
If there is an obstacle in the side wheels that will restrict the wheels from operating correctly, your Roomba will alert you with 5 beeps.
Make sure the side wheels are free of any debris or hair that may have become caught. To see any obstacles, flip the robot over and push the wheels and remove it.
4. Six Time Beep or Error 6
Your cliff sensors will alert you with this particular sort of six beeps. The cliff sensors are either over a cliff or have dirt piled on them.
To correct it, clean the sensors thoroughly with a dry, clean cloth or with compressed air.
5. Seven Beeps or Errors 7
