My Ghostly Roomba S9+ Kept Me Up All Night and iRobot Says There’s No Way to Fix It

I’m going to tell you that my Roomba S9 Plus is pursued, but do not dwell on the pursuit. The buttons are stuck, which may or may not be related. I’ve been living with the ghostly Roomba and its broken buttons since last year when it was still under warranty, but it’s only recently that it’s been waking me up in the middle of the night. When I finally contacted iRobot for support, they told me that my Roomba was dead (undead?!), and that it would be impossible for them to fix it.

I have to live with the ghostly Roomba or destroy it.

Again, let’s not dwell on the haunting part. There are many things you can replace on a Roomba. Of course you can replace the filters. You can replace all cleaning elements, such as brushes and sweepers.
