Scooba 385 - Making Grinding Noises - Video I

Scooba 385 - Making Grinding Noises - Video I recently purchased a Scooba 385 from eBay and I am concerned that it is making a grinding / grating noise - possibly from the gearbox or motor? I have shot two videos and would be really grateful if anyone could tell me if the noise is normal or not. I have also included links to two other youtube videos of more normal sounding scoobas which I used to try and reference the sound of a healthy scooba. These are videos I shot of the Scooba I received: My Scooba - Kitchen: http://youtu.be/QZxNW_HmvyU The grinding noise is pretty much constant My Scooba - Bathroom: http://youtu.be/rYWau6qg3JQ The grinding noise is happening intermittently Normal Scoobas in operation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3N6hJzIXhSg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCB2RAod8_Q Thanks in advance for any help I receive!

Have Scooba 340 that won't power on after battery fully charged!


No repair services anywhere, unfortunately. It does sound like you might need a new battery, but the issue could also be the power button. I suggest giving us a call at 1-877-855-8593 so that we can more accurately determine what the problem might be and how we can most efficiently help you to solve it.

My scooba seems to work fine but no longer makes the beeping noise. Several weeks ago the beep was sounding very strange almost like a battery was dying. Now it's not making any noise at all. Is this the...


Your speaker went out. It could be totally isolated. You're not going to be able to determine what's wrong with your Scooba if something does happen, though, because without those beep codes, there's no way for the robot to communicate with you.

If you're under warranty, call support at 1-877-855-8593 and let them know your speaker went out.

Scooba won't turn on


It sounds like you've got a finicky power button. Not a lot that can be done about that, but you may want to try getting your hands on the old-style Roomba remote, the black one. The power button from that will power on a Scooba, though you can't start a cleaning cycle that way. This might allow you to bypass the Scooba's power button altogether.

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 5800 Power button Red Blinking (Continued)


As for which one has the problem, I would say it has to be the battery. Rechargeable batteries of all types are known to have similar characteristics, one of which is discharging the batteries to maintain good rechargeablility. At least one person has demonstrated this for the Scooba battery in the roombareview.com forums when he brought a "dead" battery back to life. He allowed the battery to slowly and completely discharge using a 12-volt automobile bulb, followed by recharging the battery on the Scooba external charger. This procedure brought his "dead" battery back to a full charge! However, other forum members have reported that many have experienced problems with Scooba battery life, and that as a consequence of this iRobot will replace your battery if you call them and report a short-life battery problem. You can contact iRobot at (800) 727-9077 if you would like to report a battery problem and request a replacement.
