Question about iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum
I think there is something wrong with the "sucking back" feature of my scoobe cuz there is no water in the dirty tank at the end of the cycle. The floor also has streaks. Can anyone help me? I've just changed a new battery too.
Turn the tank over. It's transparent on the underside, and there are two oval-shaped openings that stick out more than an inch, located toward the middle. On the far right and far left sides, next to each oval opening, there is another opening. (These are oddly shaped-- one round, one large and curved like Roomba's filter.) Rinse all four of these openings really thoroughly with warm water. The water should go in one opening and come out one of the others. (This should happen when you put water in every one of the four ports.) Do not be surprised if you get clots of dirt out of there. This is generally what keeps Scooba from being able to pick up water. Then, if this works for you, make the tank rinse part of your regular cleaning routine and it shouldn't happen again.

Remove the clean water tank.
Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.
Remove the dirty water tank lid.
Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.
Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.
Give it a try! The suction should be restored. Hope this helps!
