    What model, and how is it failing to work? I'm unlikely to be able to help you, but I think the experts will require more information.

Amber flashing light while on home base. New, pulled tab, placed on dock. First time said charge err1, took out battery and replaced. Now just flashes amber. Is this correct?


Your manuals are here. Flashing lights must be covered. A quick look at the site says flashing red is bin full. In fact, I found it. Flashing Amber is CHARGING.

Red light flashing very fast and not charging fully


How long is it charging until the light goes from flashing red (no charge) to yellow to finally green (full charge) ? If it's not at least 2 hours, sorry I don't have my Roomba papers available, so I'm guesstimating here, it's not getting a full charge. If you can put a voltmeter on the " fully charged" battery pack, that might tell you if the charger is the problem. Clean off the metal contacts where Roomba meets the two metal contacts on the charger. Also just because a battery pack or set is new doesn't mean it's functional. I had a new Apple battery for my laptop that didn't work when I replaced an older one.

Bad battery most likely. Could be a faulty charger too. Have your local vac shop test it.

Status light is red, why? I have a Roomba Discovery.


Hi.

If the red light is solid, that means that the Roomba is near to full discharge. If the light is flashing red, then the Roomba is completely out of charge.

If the Roomba is fully charged, then there may be a fault.

Here full list of light codes:

Pulsing Amber - Charging
Green - Fully Charged
Amber - Partially Discharged
Red - Almost Fully Discharged
Flashing Red - Fully Discharged"

Scooba not working after full recharge


NiCD and LiOn batteries have this tendency. They work great for a year, then slowly die off. The problem is you. When new, the device MUST be charged for 14hr nonstop, then every 2-3 months run dead, and recharged again 14hrs nonstop. This is done so the CPU of the Roomba (cool toy) KNOWS what DEAD is and what FULL is. It does this by measuring the amount of currrent flowing thru a very precise resistance. If you do hit and miss charge cycles of the roomba or leave it charging too long, it either develops a flase memory of the above two conditions, or gets HOT and the electrolyte paste dries out. Fix is to wear it out, charge 14hrs, wer it out againand repeat 3-4x. Then recharge and use. If that doesn't fix it, the batteries are too dried and need to be replaced.

Battery charge


Dave you are correct. You should never over-charge anything like a Roomba, Cel Phone, etc. That will kill a bettery very quickly.

Roomba 4200 Scheduler


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.
