    My scooba runs for 1 to 3 minutes then the service light goes on. I've tried to clean the small fan blades with a Qtip and water. That worked for a while but now that fix is not effective.

    Any help would be appreciated.

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.

amber it might be a valve stuck get a straw and blow air into the solution valve under tank on right or try droping scooba 2 inches from ground as this might reset the ball valve .

Stuck on check tank indicator


If your Scooba's Green Check Tank light is coming on immediately on startup, please try the following steps:

1. Remove and reseat Scooba's battery, ensuring that you hear it click into place.
2. Remove and reseat the brush head
3. Remove and reseat the vacuum port and filter. When replacing the filter, be sure to press firmly into the hole. There is a magnet on the filter that must connect with the magnet on the Scooba.
4. Fill Scooba’s Clean Tank with approximately 1 cup of cold water, shake vigorously, and empty it to remove any debris in the tank.
5. Empty the Dirty Tank, refill with water, and slosh it around to pick up any sediment. Empty the Dirty Tank again.
6. Refill Scooba’s Clean Tank with water, adding a pinch or two of table salt. Run the Scooba. If the issue persists, please follow the steps below:

With the tank removed, press the Power button and then the Clean button.

If the robot tries to start a cleaning cycle, power off the robot and repeat, pressing the Power button first and then the Clean button. If the pump makes a “whirring” or squirting sound and the robot does not start a cleaning cycle (Check Tank indicator will light), this indicates that the pump is working. Replace the tank and try starting a new cleaning cycle with the tank on.

If Scooba does begin a cleaning cycle the second time you press the Power and then the Clean button with the tank removed, the pump valve could be blocked with debris. Using a turkey baster, straw or sports bottle, force water through Scooba’s solution valve. Confirm that the baster, straw or sports bottle fits snugly over Scooba’s solution valve, push water through the system at least three times, and then try re-starting Scooba.

Below is a link to a diagram of these steps for visual reference:
