Thinking Cleaner does not respond to the SPOT button:
It can happen that your Roomba is a bit confused. There are several ways to solve this, often a Clean or Dock command from the app or web-app will reestablish communication, if not you can reset Roomba plus Thinking Cleaner by taking out the battery and putting it back. In the latest firmware versions V1.0.84 and higher, there is a restart button in the Options page of the web-app (https://thinkingsync.com/mydevices) which will reset both the Thinking Cleaner and your Roomba.
