IRobot will stop after few seconds ..

Dear Sir,
After fully charged, my IRobot will still stop after running for from few
seconds to 1-2 mins. It stops and the power light is flashing..
I need to remove the battery and put it back in, then it will be able
to restart.
Could you tell me what going on with my Roomba ??
Thank you very much

Eric.
I have a Roomba 4230. I put it in the charger it seems to be charging, then when the green light reflects is fully charge I put it to work and then in a few seconds it stops and the red light is flashing as it don't has any gharge. I tried by putting in the base again, but it continue with the problem.

Hi,

How old is the unit? It looks like the battery needs to be replaced.

Roomba 560 fully charges. Runs for 2 seconds fully green and just stops. And lights up red.????


Set him on the floor, after powering him off and then back on, and press the "Clean" button three times. This will reset him.

Is the light flashing green when you say it's fully charged? If it's yellow or red, that means it's got a low or no charge. The only time mine stops running is when something too big gets lodged in the brushes or it catches a sock or towel in the mechanism. It also can get stopped when if goes from one level of floor to another say 2 inches higher. It might need to be dismantled and cleaned out as well.

I have a 4.5 year old IRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum. Appears to be fully charged but then only runs for about 30 seconds before stopping. What may be the problem?


You need a new battery - they don't hold their charge after a while. There is a lot of advice on line about how to try to make the battery last longer but 4.5 years is actually pretty good.

Just put a new battery in scuba and it runs about 30 seconds (completely charged)


1) replace again the batteries by new ones and completely charged.
2) test the charger if if functioning properly, can be faulty, and not charge well the batteries.
3) test the power supplies inside from the scuba, to due some short circuit drain the batteries.
God bless you

My irobot (Roomba)is only working for 10 mins then


It should take about 6 hrs to charge. I had the same problem and reset the charging circuit. 1) Charge it until the green light comes on. 2) Unplug and pull battery out. 3) hold down the power on button 15-30 seconds. 4.) Put the battery back in, plug in the charger (direct - not through the dock) and charge for 72 hrs. Then, run at Max clean until the "I'm dead" tune plays.

I have a Roomba, it runs for a few minutes and stops, the battery is fully charged. Any ideas?


The battery isn't able to fully charge, it just retains the proper voltage, but lacks the amperage to run because the first and last battery in the pack are dead. Battery replacement time. Try Ebay for best battery pricing.
BTW I use the nicad pack.

IRobot 530 charges intermittently


Reset the Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for fifteen seconds, then release and listen for the tune. Then charge the Roomba overnight. The next time you run it, the unit should run longer. If not, call support and let them know you may have a battery problem. 1-877-855-8593 (I strongly encourage you to have the Roomba with you if you call.)

Roomba cuts off after a minute or so.


If you have a 400 series Roomba, try removing the battery, then holding down the power button for ten seconds, then recharging the unit before you run it again.

If you have a 500 series Roomba, don't take out the battery-- just press and hold the "spot" and "dock" buttons for about fifteen seconds. The Roomba will play a tune, and you can then charge it and try running it again later.

Same thing happened to me, I called the company, and they told me to remove the battery, press the on button for 5 seconds, which clears the system, replace the battery and do a long charge 12 hours. I'm in the process of doing that now.

It sounds like the battery is shot. These batteries only work for a couple of years and then they won't accept a charge any more. A common mistake people make is recharging them before they need it. This will make the battery "lazy"
Contact the manufacturer for more info.
