Scooba circles and only goes backwards.

My scooba circles one direction and then the other and then goes backwards. I've cleaned the little blue front wheel, but it continues. Can you help me?

My scooba 5800 has a problem. When i push the power button, and hen the cleant button, he makes ~1 circle, stops, turns again, stops, goes backwards, stops, and then goes backwards and stops until he is on a wall


the right answer is:

I've found the problem !!!

On the picture of the Tachymeter system, the first cable (brown, on the pin number 3), didn't make contact anymore. There was oxydation on the contact. I had to soldier it again.

Ours did that, the other persons post helped, we took everything apart and cleaned every inch of it. there was some dog hair trapped inside of it right in front of the sensor. we put everything back together and it works great now! we just google "how to take apart a scooba" and followed the description and pictures, just be careful when you do it, we still had 4 screws left over afterwards, dont know what we missed but it works so that works for me! good luck!

My Scooba (brand new battery) won't spray water out to clean the floor. What should I do? I've tried over and over. It moves in circles but no fluid will come out to clean the floor!!!!!


Ive had that problem and what i did was put the tank in the kitchen sink and turned the water on blast and let it everything flush out through the diffeiirent outings in the tank. Also (i think this was the actual solution) i got the little blue squeeze ball thingy and placed the tip over the little white tip (or light blue tip) that lays on top of the unit (you will see it after you remove the tank) and just squeezed and squeezed the ball over and over and over again. Its the same way as you would prime the tank to get the water flowing. I noticed when i did that a tiny white piece of lint came out as welll..so it was probably clogged. but nevertheless, that is alway a must, to prime the machine by placing the tip of that squueze ball over the little nozzle tip thats on top of the unit (which is under the tank itself). )

Roomba 560 goes in circles. appears lost


You have a locked wheel switch that needs to be cleared. You will need to remove the top of your roomba and find which wheel switch is clogged and clear it.

My roomba won't go forward it just spins in a circle and will go backwards. I have already tried cleaning it out and cleaning the front bumper sensors.


You will need to take the top off to clear those wheels.
This happens a lot when cleaning new carpet. The fuzz jams the wheel switch, and dosey do you go.

Starts out backwards, then circles ,then stops. and repeats


Remove all three wheels and make sure they're clean. Tap the bumper with your hand, and maybe blow out behind it with compressed air. If the problem continues, call us-- it's in the wheel motors, most likely. 1-877-855-8593.

Backward spinning roomba


If you are lucky then one of the 4 sensors under the bumper has dust lint buildup. Blow out these areas and give your unit a good cleaning. If it still continues to do this then the bumper bar sensor should be replaced

Scooba now stops sooner and isn't finished cleaning :-(


I had this problem and contacted irobot. An important fact was left out of the early edition user manual to not leave the battery charging for an extended amount of time. Because of this ommision, they sent me a new battery and a software upgrade for the scooba. I just followed the directions and attached the little device they sent to do the upgrade the scooba and it fixed the battery problem.

Hope this helps.

Irobot scooba 5800 spins quickly then sets off backwards


Remove and clean all of the wheels, and make sure the cliff sensors under the bumper are clean. Tap the bumper with your hand-- really smack it a couple of times. It sounds like the Scooba believes it's stuck against an obstacle.

I cant open my scooba


If you haven't used the scooba before or if it has been a long time, the pump may need to be primed.  Go to irobot and do a search for how to do this.  I also had difficulty opening my scooba.  Press down with the palm of your hand on the back silver plate as you push down on the silver release handle.  This worked for me.

Scooba


Ensure that the front caster can spin freely, pivot, and rotate. Remove the caster by pulling it out and clear any dirt. Reinsert the wheel and lightly push the wheel up and down
