Have you tried to check the rollers carefully right after getting the error 2? For some reason Roomba is thinking that something is stuck in the robot vacuum rollers as they creating the resistance. If you have it for a while it might be that the inside gears are getting resistance from dirt. You can see in this video how to repair it.

Argh this is an annoying error. I kept facing it as well. It’s super important to check the rollers - that is the first thing I would suggest to do. Usually, that is the problem. The rollers are probably just stuck or dirty. Otherwise, google troubleshooting for roomba. There are many guides available. I saw this one. That’s what I did.

I have completely disassembled mt Roomba 500. Cleaned brushes meticulously, disassembled the drive train. Cleaned gears and axles. Still get Error 2! I infer that the resistance is upstream of brushes and gears. Perhaps the motor shaft itself. That will be a very tough repair for me

So I received this error. I removed and cleaned the rollers as well as the entire cage, this did not fix the issue. I replaced the rollers with new ones as the existing ones were not in the greatest of condition. Replacing the rollers did fix the issue.
