Do you leave the battery on charge long enough? Try 4-hours up to overnight. If so, then the battery is probably at the end of it's useful life. Getting a new battery depends on cost versus life expectancy of the robot and whether it does the job you want it to do.

Scooba beeps 4 times


  • Lift Roomba off the floor and place it in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle.
  • If Roomba did not resume cleaning, lift Roomba and turn it over.* Inspect the Side Wheels for dirt or obstructions.
  • Test the Side Wheels by pushing them in and out and making sure they rotate freely. Place Roomba in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle..

    Scooba 5800 starts to charge then beeps loudly


    1) test the batteries very well in another device.
    2) test the charges if working properly.
    3) test the power inside from scuba, some electronic components like diode, or capacitor is draining the batteries. repair or rreplace.
    God bless you

    It leaves water after finished. That's the first time I use it but it leave water on the floor and it stops.


    According to iRobot make sure that the Scooba is clean, including the parts (vacuum hose & filter, bottom roller)
    Make sure the battery if fully charged, and that you let it complete the cycles!

    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 iRobot scooba won't turn on after a full charge


    Do you have the charger terminal, or do you have the charger that you have to take out the battery and charge. Because I have found that my base terminal charger works better than the battery charger that needs the battery to be removed to charge.If you have the terminal charger and the power light is green when it is in the charger I would start from the terminal

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Scooba 5800 Power button Red Blinking


    You probably have the manual, but here's the link to the Scooba 5800 manual anyway - just in case this would be useful to you: --> http://www.irobot.com/images/homesupport/5800_Scooba_Manual.pdf You could use a voltmeter to check the battery, but only a few months use shouldn't be enough to wear it out. If you don't have a load-tester to verify the battery's load-capacity, then you can check the voltage drop. (Assuming you can get it to contact the Scooba's circuits.) To do this, just check the battery voltage, apply a load by inserting it in the machine and turning it on, then check the battery voltage again. An excessive drop in voltage may indicate the battery needs replacing. However, the red blinking light is Scooba's indicator that it doesn't detect the battery at all. The first thing to do in this case is to clean the electrical contacts on the battery and in the Scooba. Use a damp cloth and a bit of toothpaste to rub the contacts clean on the battery and in the machine. (Toothpaste has mild abrasives in it and will clean the electric contacts without damaging them.) Make sure that both the battery and the Scooba are clean and dry before re-inserting the battery. Also, if the electric contacts in the machine are flexible matal tabs then verify that the tabs are standing up high enough to make good contact with the battery contacts. Hopefully the battery just needs it's contacts cleaned for your unit to work, but test the battery if you are sure that they are clean and seated properly to the contacts in the machine. If the battery appears to be failing, then contact www.irobot.com to cheack and see if they are still covered under your machine's warranty. Hope this helps! :)
