I'm sorry if you have seen this question before (I've searched but could not find an answer):
I have a brand spanking new 'just out of the box' IRobot Roomba 770 that I have been unable to even get to charge up for the first time because every time I put it on the charging station it starts saying and showing ERROR 2.
In the manual it says if ERROR 2 happens your Roomba is too hot and needs to cool down then be put back on the charging base - but this can not be the case for me because the roomba has never done a cleaning cycle even, this is its first charge out of the box...
If you have any suggestions about what I am doing wrong - or how I can remedy this situation I would greatly appreciate your advice.

I have taken one apart. reassembled and the fan would not turn, although there was power to the motor and it wanted to turn. Sorry this is long...only this is about taking the motor itself apart..and I have yet to find a replacement motor.
1. Tried a little WD 40...(only on iron motor Housing!) nothing. 2. Took apart inside of motor. some rust inside.. 3. carefully rubbed clean with WD 40.. 4. leaned off WD 40 with contact cleaner... 5. Then worked little bearing loose on back side. -Kind of turned upon reassembly.. 6. Found some silicone High temp lubricant and took motor inside part again. 7. a very thin coat of lubricant inside rotor. -Re assembled yet again..began to turn at high speed, kept running..24 hrs.. - It .finally turned at silent mode. and continues to work This may be ar beyond what you want to do, however if all else fails...what else can you do? buy another one? Tips: 1. mark rotor holders with housing. (do not reverse.) 2. make sure you remove all lint, dust, etc inside. 3. the rotor bearing I had to work by hand again and again repeatedly syringing a little WD 40 at a time to until it turned easily.
This unit has had multiple electrical problems probably due to cheap circuit board parts. I've sent many back for repair. Repair usually runs $242 last time I checked, or you could trade in for a new unit. They'll take $100 off the cost of a new one. Otherwise, you may be able to try taking it to a small electronics repair place. I don't believe it's that complicated but if the board is toast there's no repairing it.
It's attached to the pulse radio-wave ionizer. It comes on when the unit is on to show the radio wave is working. It's not needed and I've never seen a replacement but Radio Shack could probably help you replace it if you wanted.
California Air Resources Board was paid to ban any non-commercial Ozone-producing machines from being shipped into the state. Volarra, didn't want to spend the money to DEMAND they produce a list of injured parties, ALWAYS a part of any ban on a product. When I called them they said they knew of no injuries or medical lawsuits. I've never heard of any...after 9 years. Green Environmental Technologies installs the Space-Certified part into Hospital Surgical rooms, the OLD ozone technology got rid of my 2 boys teen-room odors and they stopped using their inhalers. Went from 4 per month for 15 years for the both of them, to 4 per year. GET also went to the Atlantis Casino and purified their KENO room with a single OLD technology commercial unit. GET-GreenTech.com They've been commercial certified, mold certified, have a PhD on staff, with partners across the country. This technology is good enough to fight a toxic chemical spill, so YES there's a chance that you could overuse it. But like the water tap, you should learn the symptoms of it being too high. Headaches, pool bleachy smell, sore throat in the morning that goes away pretty fast. These machines are supposed to be on as LOW as possible!
Also make sure the safety interlock switch is properly closed when re-assembled. It's the springloaded switch inside the little notch in the chassis - the small tab on the lint screen should fit in and push that switch closed. If you do it wrong, the unit won't work. You should hear an audible click when the tab closes the switch.
