Question about iRobot 5900 Scooba Robotic Wet/Dry Vacuum
Hi, After using the Scooba for about 10 times, it stopped putting down watter. Seems like iRobot do not have any kind of support/warranty for the device. Waited for 17 minutes on the line, than hangup wrote an email. took them 4 days to get back with the answer - no support). Any idea how to fix such a pump ? Thanks
I calledthe company and they told me to forcefully flush warm water repeatedly through the valve that is just above the brush release button the the mechanical part of the scooba. It may take 20 or 30 flushes (I used a turkey baster, iRobot suggested a children's nasal syringe) and "Scooby" is running great.

This probably has something to do with your solution valve (located by 'eject brush' button). When my scooba stopped pumping out water I used the bulb syringe that came with my unit, place the opening over the solution valve 5-10 times and squeezed the bulb very hard. This probably forced out some debris that might have been stuck inside not allowing the water to flow from the tank and now my units works fine.

Check and make sure the vaccume port is properly installed. I also went on their website, and they do have a faq about this. I have included the link to the site for your convenience: http://homesupport.irobot.com/cgi-bin/irobot_homesupport.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2&p_created=1153319315&p_sid=DCawHwJi&p_accessibility=&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTEmcF9wcm9kcz0zMSwzMyZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9Mi4zMyZwX2N2PSZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPWFuc3dlcnMuc2VhcmNoX2ZubCZwX3BhZ2U9MSZwX3NlYXJjaF90ZXh0PXdhdGVy&p_li=&p_topview=1
