What does Roomba Error 7 mean?

If your Roomba displays error 7, it indicates that your Roomba’s side wheels aren’t spinning correctly. But if it says “Charging error 7,” it means that the Roomba isn’t charging or the charging system is damaged.

I’ll now go over several unique and cutting-edge techniques you can use to solve the issue. However, keep in mind that I am not promising it will work. But you can try!




1. Clean the wheels✅

Clean the wheel

The first and most possible reason your Roomba displays error 7 is obstructed side wheels. Regarding cleaning and maintenance, the side wheels are the most overlooked component. There are three caster wheels in a Roomba, and if you pay close attention to the front one, you will notice a lot of hair on its axle.

Check and clean your Roomba’s wheels at least once every week. If you ignore them, you may get an Error 7 message.

To clean your Roomba’s wheels, follow the below steps:

  • First, flip the robot over.
  • Then take a fresh microfiber towel and wipe the wheels lightly.
  • Finally, check visually to see if there is any debris and tangles there. If it is, remove them.
