Question about iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum
I purchased a Scooba from someone brand new, never out of the box. It worked about four times and did a great job! After about a week it just would not turn on. It shows that it is charging and then fully charged but when I unplug the charger and push power I get nothing. No light, no beep, nothing. I tried contacting iRobot for help but received no response. I finally figured it was the battery (dated 2005) and purchased a new battery. It arrived last night, I installed it and pushed power. It came on right away which confirmed to me that the other one was just dead. Well, I go to put the Scooba on this morning and again, nothing. Nada. No power. Anyone? Thanks so much!
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.
