Question about iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum

Open Question

Irobot runs without pushing power button

Whenever I snap my battery into my irobot Discovery 4210 it starts running. If I push the power button, it won't turn off. If I press Max or Clean, it works. It's very annoying not being able to turn it off without taking the battery out. I cleaned it out completely with an air compressor, just in case any of the sensors were covered in dust and it still didn't help. Any suggestions?

It sounds like the battery is shot. These batteries only work for a couple of years and then they won't accept a charge any more. A common mistake people make is recharging them before they need it. This will make the battery "lazy"
Contact the manufacturer for more info.

the battery on your roomba is dead, try charging it for 16 hours, after that if it still does not work. you need to replace the battery.

Do you leave the battery on charge long enough? Try 4-hours up to overnight. If so, then the battery is probably at the end of it's useful life. Getting a new battery depends on cost versus life expectancy of the robot and whether it does the job you want it to do.

SOURCE: My roomba discovery will not operate on the clean

If your Roomba goes "uh-oh", beep-beep-beep, that's a 3-beep error code, indicating that your vacuum motor is stalled. Remove the grill from the outside (back) of the dustbin and make sure that the impeller (looks like a fan) turns easily and is not clogged with dirt. Then try to run the robot with the bin ON but the grill OFF. You should be able to tell whether the vacuum impeller is spinning. If not, you'll need a new bin. You can confirm wth customer support by calling 1-877-855-8593.

The charging circuit on the main board is fried. This is a common issue. You need some good electronic repair skills, and equipment, to replace the problem components

Why does irobot dock without cleaning room?


How long does it run before docking? One to two hours is normal. 2 minutes means your battery is dying and it's coming back for more power.

Roomba 4210 won't start


  • Lift Roomba off the floor and place it in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle.
  • If Roomba did not resume cleaning, lift Roomba and turn it over.* Inspect the Side Wheels for dirt or obstructions.
  • Test the Side Wheels by pushing them in and out and making sure they rotate freely. Place Roomba in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle

    The green light is on as though the battery is fully charged, however, when I start a cleaning cycle, it beeps and goes to red immediately without moving.


    Remove the battery, hold down the POWER button for ten seconds, then put the battery back in and charge overnight. If it still tells you it's out of power as soon as you start it, it's time for a new battery. http://store.irobot.com

    Model4210battry won't recharge, is it worth ordering a battery?


    don't buy a new battery yet. you can reset the battery by charging for 16 hours, if this does not work, you need to take the battery out, push and hold the power button on your roomba for at least 15 seconds then reinstall the battery. plug in the charger directly to roomba not the docking station and charge until the battery light on the roomba is green. do not interrupt the battery charging cycle. after, leave the roomba charging for an additional 3 days or 72 hours. after, run roomba in max mode and run it till the battery is completely depleted. this will improve the battery overtime by charging again for 72 hours and depleting the battery. do this 3 or 4 times. and the battery should get better

    Brush keeps running


    The problem is in the Roomba itself. It can't be fixed-- time to call support.
