I was having the same problem. Roomba would run for 30 seconds and then stop. I tried everything -- then I took the small rubber brush out and removed the small nut at the end. It was packed with dust to the point that it could not turn easily. I cleaned it out and now it is working like a champ. I think the automatic shut down was just a sign that there was too much strain to turn the brushes.

If it is supposed to go green then the battery is not being fully charged. Unit is under warranty and now is the time to have matter addressed.

My roomba appears to charge and has a solid green light when finished, but when I take it off the charger and try to turn it on I get the 4 note song and blinking red light like the battery is low even...


This is totally happening to me too. It apears to charges, works for about 2 minutes then stops and the red light is on as if its not charged. I am thinking to buy a new battery but they seem to be about AUD$50 and if thats not the problems I have wasted my money. The repair centre in Melbourne was so rude on the phone I wont send it to them as they cannot say how much it will cost me

Seems to charge but then wont come on


Sounds like you bought a defective battery
You can test for this by removing the battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This will restart the charging cycle as if the battery were new. If it still goes red get a refund and a new one.

New battery. Charged for 24 hours. Light is green, but after 20 seconds light turns red and it stops.


There's a chance that the battery you bought is bad. There's a greater chance that the problem is with the charger. If you're using the dock to charge, try plugging the charger directly into the roomba just to rule that out. If that doesn't fix the problem, I would try borrowing or buying a new charger, and see if that works. If a new charger and new battery don't solve the problem, the problem must be with your roomba itself.

Roomba 4108 does not charge


Try resetting your Roomba by removing the battery, unplug the charging connector, hold down the Power button for 30 seconds. This will reset the charging system, replace your battery, connect your charger and see what happens. By the way do you also have a homebase ? If so try that too

Let it charge for a full 24, or even 48 hours, regardless of the green light. If it still dies you probably need a new battery.. or worse.

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.
