Question about Vacuums
My Roomba continues to run no matter what I do to try to turn it off. It doesn't move anywhere, it just runs. We removed the battery in hopes of re-setting it, but as soon as I put the battery back in, it starts up again without prompting. Is there another reset I'm missing? How do I get it back to normal?
I think both of you who responded are tools.
The issue is on the main board. What JBugs is saying is the brushes continue to run even if the unit is manually turned off.
There is no fix other than to replace the main board. There is a circuit which drives the brushes. If the circuit electronically gets stuck in a closed position, then the brushes will run until out of power.
There is a way to install a switch in the brush circuits but then you must manually turn the brushes on each time you want to clean.
Best bet is to call iRobot, complain and buy one of the out of warranty replacements for $99. This replacement will allow you to schedule the unit to wake up and will perform exactly like the Scheduler.
