Question about iRobot Roomba Discovery SE Bagless Robotic Vacuum

Open Question

I have just had this Robot595 for a week. I used it twice, and it worked well. It is plugged in at all times to the wall outlet, and the Battery pack/ base flashes green regularly.but the Robot itself does not work today when I tried it. Should it not be plugged in full time? I understood that that is what I am supposed to do with it. There is no life at all today, but as I said before it worked well when I used it last. I did not use it until it quit either time.. Help! Betg

The best for the battery if (NiMH). Discharge completly, than charge full (charge more even the charger indicates full charge)

Clean every part, maybe a hair slow down the wheels and thats why need more power.

Here some tip from the web:


With proper care, one iRobot Roomba battery can last for hundreds of cleaning cycles before you need to replace it. Here are some things you can do to extend Roomba's battery life and keep Roomba cleaning at peak performance:



Use your Roomba frequently. Your Roomba is powered by a rechargeable nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery, which lasts the longest when you use it regularly.



Keep the brushes clean. If the brushes and brush axles get clogged with hair and other debris, your Roomba will strain to spin them, using more battery power than normal. In extreme cases, the battery can even be damaged. See How to remove and clean Roomba's brushes



Keep your Roomba plugged in when not in use. If you have a Home Base®, keep your Roomba docked in the Home Base and plugged into the charging brick. If you don’t have a Home Base, keep your Roomba plugged into the APS Fast Charger.



Make sure you are charging your Roomba correctly. When your Roomba is plugged in correctly, the solid green light should be illuminated on the charger or on the Home Base.



Plug your Roomba in as soon as possible after using Max Mode. Leaving your Roomba unplugged for more than 24 hours can damage the battery.



Place your Roomba and the Home Base on a smooth, hard surface when yourRoomba is plugged in. Make sure your Roomba and the Home Base have plenty of space for ventilation. Do not charge your Roomba on a carpet or rug.



Charge and store your Roomba in a cool, dry place. Keep your Roomba out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat such as windows, radiators, heating vents, and large appliances.



Remove the battery when not using your Roomba for a long period of time. If you will not be using your Roomba for more than a few weeks, fully charge the battery, remove it, and store it in a cool, dry place. When you want to use your Roomba again, insert the battery and fully charge it. Leaving your Roomba plugged in for weeks when it is not being used can damage the battery.

You can purchase a second battery or replacement online at the iRobot Store.

SOURCE: 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:

SOURCE: light houses aren't turning on.

Make sure your virtual wall batteries are fresh-- even if you're sure they are, try removing and replacing them just to reset the virtual wall.

Then reset your Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for about fifteen seconds. Release them and wait for the tune.

Recharge the Roomba and then try to run it. The virtual walls ought to respond at that point. If they don't, you might find that calling customer support may help.

Generic works fine, and that charger does too. If your charge light and dock light are on then you'll be okay.
Save cash, go generic!

Battery problem.If the battery is absolutely new,still it can be battery problem.But if the battery is old then replace the battery.To confirm the battery fault check the voltage of battery with meter.It should show exact volt.At least 12 volt.If the battery gets warm then the charging circuit is working but if not then the charging circuit is not working.failure is due to a failure with U2/U4 in the charging circuit. --------- For more troubleshooting,if you require service manual for your roomba model,please click on this link directly:--- http://choisirsonaspirateur.info/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Roomba-500-Series-Service-Manual.pdf ------------

Why is my eureka super broom not turning on?


When machine does not work, first check wall outlet ( plug in an hair dryer or table lamp to check wall outlet. ) and it that is OK than check your power cord for break ( if wire's are broken inside outer coating the cord will be very weak at that point )

What does prong mean


A prong is usually a piece sticking out. Your vacuum has a power cord that plugs into the wall outlet. The metal pieces coming out of the plug that go into the wall outlet are called prongs.

What would cause this to shut off after a few minutes of use with full battery charge


1) test the power cord for open, broken, loose or defective with VOM
2) test the outlet wall, for ground improperly, and repair.
3) Most of the time is THERMAL fuse, replace or fix it.
God bless you

I installed the Hoover Wind Tunnel Central Vac in my new home. After connecting the wall outlets and successfully turning on the system from the hose control, I discovered there is lots of air flow t


I would recommend checking your wall outlets where the hose plugs in for any type of clog in the tubing. If the vacuum itself has great suction but when you go to the wall outlets that is probably something in the hose that is stuck. If cleared it will most likely have excellent suction throughout the entire system in the house.

Its showing full battery then after 5minutes showing low battery...


You have a nearly-failed battery.
You'll need to replace your battery as soon as possible, or (like everyone does) use your laptop
while plugged into the wall outlet, because modern battery technology is so substandard, and
after 6 months of use, everyone's laptop battery goes marginal - just as yours has.

Check that the bung that closes off the water outlet hole is not stuck in the outlet. Remove the water container and check the underside where the outlet is while operating the opening mechanism.

Battery or ?


If this model is under 1 year warranty, I would suggest that you take it to a warranty repair shop or that you ask for a replacement. with a Return Material Authorization (RMA) at no further cost to you for shipping.
