Amber flashing light while on home base. New, pulled tab, placed on dock. First time said charge err1, took out battery and replaced. Now just flashes amber. Is this correct?


Your manuals are here. Flashing lights must be covered. A quick look at the site says flashing red is bin full. In fact, I found it. Flashing Amber is CHARGING.

Tip

Irobot, Dirt Dog, Scooba


By now I bet most of you have seen one of these.
They clean your carpet and don't complain about a paycheck.
They scrub your floors and they clean your shop, and some of them even do it on a schedule, while others clean out your rain gutters, and the expensive ones clean your pool!

Well guess what?

They all have pretty much the same brain.
Know what that means to you?
They can ALL clean on a predetermined schedule!

Yes Irobot sells a Roomba called a scheduler which has a remote control, but they can all be programmed with that same remote control to clean at any time you desire, 7 days a week, once a day. The real beauty of this though is that you can buy that remote on Ebay for pretty cheap.

The only thing you have to remember is to set them to different times and feed those times in separately. You MUST have the Irobot turned on prior to sending it a schedule, otherwise you wont hear a confirmation tone.

Lets say you want the Dirt Dog to clean up a pretty nasty floor before the Roomba does it's thing. You set the day, lets make it Wednesday.
Now you set the scheduler on the remote control pad so the Irobot runs when you're asleep.

The average Dirt Dog runs 45 minutes to an hour, so we set it for midnight.
Then we set the Roomba for 1am. For each time we set for each device there will have to be a code sent and recorded by the device itself, which wil be followed by a short confirmation tone.

Remember that before you send a new schedule to a different robot, you will have to erase or modify the old schedule recorded in the remote control. The schedule doesn't need to be present on the remote control for the Irobot to run on time. Once the schedule has been sent and the confirmation tone has sounded, nothing else needs to be done for the Irobot to do it's job, so you can safely wipe the previous schedule and set a new one, then send that schedule to another Irobot.

When the Remote Control sends a code, it effectively sets the clock on the Irobot, then tells it when to run according to that clock.

Now lets say you want the kitchen floors scrubbed every wednesday, but you dont want the Scooba bumping into either the Dirt Dog or the Roomba.
The solution is to set it to run at 2am.

The end result is a very clean floor that even your toddler can safely play on. Lets also remember that the very same remote control you use to set those schedules can also be used to guide and control the Irobot much like you would a remote controlled toy car. SO, if you have a party and someone spills a drink, you can simply guide the Scooba to that spot and have it wash and wet-vac the area.

That's my Tip for the Day

@ in one dirt devil light keeps blinking


Hi! The model number you provided M085845 is a corded vacuum that does not need to be charged. If you have a battery operated product, the indicator light will begin to blink after being plugged in for 12-14 hours or more. Try unplugging the charger for a few minutes. Hope this is helpful. If you still have questions please reach back out to us here of Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks!

Kenmore InteliClean 116.35923502 Two, I believe unrelated, problems. 1) The InteliClean sensor lights stay amber and red even when the machine is in the upright position and the suction line is...


I had the same problem with the amber inteliclean light continually on. I found the problem to be in the plastic housing that connects the suction hose to the back of the upright section. You have to remove three screws and gently pull the hose housing off the vacuum. Inside I found a hairy clump that was caught on the inside of the hose. The optical "dirt sensor" is just inside the fitting on the upright section. When dirt or other stuff blocks the optical path of the sensors, the amber light will illuminate. My vacuum had an uneven cut on the hose which caused a snag point for hair, dirt and debris. Once this was removed, the vacuum worked like new.

Regarding the roller, this unit has an integrated motor in the roller. I would guess that you will need to take it apart, and hopefully only clean it up. If you need bearings, that will likely be expensive.

Dirt Dog is going over stairs! Why?


On the front of the dirt dog there are 4 "Cliff Sensors" which tell it to back up or turn when it "Sees" steps. Clean these with a Q tip. If that doesnt work, go through the "Diagnostic" procedure listed here....http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10821&start=0

Dirt dog goes backwards and in circles


It probably needs to have it's coordinates reset. It has the layout of the room to vacuum stored in memory, for a pattern to follow. Try doing the procedure again that it needed before it's first use.

IRobot Roomba Dirt Dog sounds weak and stops


Generally the unit will beep or play the "uh-oh" tone or do something. I wish I could tell you what's going on with this Dirt Dog, but it's not communicating the problem. The best thing to do would be to give us a call when you have the robot with you. That will enable us to do any necessary troubleshooting as well as set up any orders that might be necessary. We're here M-F, 9a-7p, and Saturdays 9-6, EST. 1-877-855-8593 Look forward to hearing from you!
