Scooba model 6050. The robot picks up dirt as found in the screen, but does not vacuum up any water. The dirty water tank remains empty after using all of the clean water. Help. Thanks.

the dirty water lines may be clogged. I don't exactly know how to un-clog it, but I would check to see if there is any way to flush them out. or talk to the company's customer service people. They would know what to do without voiding the warrenty.

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.

Scooba says check tank and won't move.

Rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank with warm water, particularly the round opening that covers your Scooba's vacuum port and the curved one that matches the filter. Odds are, there's a clog in there and your Scooba knows it. Rinse the two oval ports as well, as thoroughly as you can.

Also, try priming the pump with water. The iRobot website shows how to do this under the Scooba troubleshooting section.

Then run the unit with water and vinegar (in place of the Clorox Cleaning Solution) if possible.

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.

IRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum dirt not going into the fliter basket

You can try rinsing the tank very thoroughly with warm water. Be very sure that you rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank (one round, two oval, one curved like Scooba's filter) very thoroughly, because all the dirt and dirty water moves through those openings and can clog things up.

Scooba doesn't put watter. Pump not working?

I calledthe company and they told me to forcefully flush warm water repeatedly through the valve that is just  above  the brush release button the the mechanical part  of the scooba.  It may take 20 or 30 flushes (I used a turkey baster, iRobot suggested a children's nasal syringe) and "Scooby" is  running great.
