If you're sure the battery contacts are clean and the battery really is charged, then there is faulty circuitry within the Roomba that would have to be repaired or replaced.

Confirm that the battery is inserted with the metal contacts down so they make contact with the spring terminals in the battery compartment.

Visually confirm that the metal contact plates on the battery pack, and the spring terminals in the battery compartment are clean and shiny. If not, wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel, its OK to use a little water or rubbing alcohol on the cloth, if needed, and then dry it.

Visually confirm that the metal contact plates on the Roomba, and the spring terminals on the docking station's home plate are clean and shiny. If not, wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel, its OK to use a little water or rubbing alcohol on the cloth, if needed, and then dry it.

If you have a volmeter, measure the voltage between the contacts on the battery pack If it isn't something in the neighborhood of 14 volts and is 11 volts or less, the battery isn't fully charged.

Reinstall the battery.

For the moment, please connect the power adapter directly to the Roomba rather than the docking station to eliminate one possible faultly connection.

If the battery wasn't fully charged, or you weren't able to test it, try to charge the Roomba and then retest the battery voltage if you can. If the battery voltage was higher immediately after charging, but didn't get to 14 volts, the charger is good, but battery needs to be replaced. If the battery voltage was unchanged after attempting to charge the Roomba, the charging circuitry may be faulty. If there was no light patterns when you tried to charge it, and it was plugged in to a good outlet, then the power adapter or charging circuitry is definitely bad.

If you have no voltmeter and you cleaned the contacts and tried to charge the Roomba and it works, use the Roomba and then recharge using the docking station and see if it was just dirty contacts or it won't charge through the docking station. If it didn't work, you'll need to figure out if its the battery, the charging circuitry in the Roomba, or the power adapter. If there are no lights when you try to charge the Roomba, then Either the power adapter or the Roomba power circuitry is defective, but without a voltmeter you can't find out which one, and there's no way to know if the battery is good or bad, but you know Roomba wasn't trying to charge it. If there are lights when you try to charge the Roomba, then at least you know the power adapter is good. Unfortunately, without being able to test something there's no way to distinguish between a charger that won't deliver a charge to the battery and a battery that won't accept a charge. If you want to take a guess then a bad battery is more common and less expensive to fix.

Shark won't hold charge


How long are you letting it charge for? It's also possible the battery is defective, or there is a short in the vac.

Iron shuts off intermittently during use, therefore it won't steam. Before we go any further does this site charge for this service?


No charge for my answer, but you can contact an Expert on this type of appliances and discuss it further.

I bought Dyson DC16 in 2008. Charged full but it only last for 1 minuet. Should I get a new charger? Is Dyson going to send me a new charger?


Your battery is losing voltage too quick. It has probably developed a 'memory'. Dyson claims that their handheld has the best suction out of all the handhelds out there. In order to maintain that claim the circuit board will shut off power to the motor when the voltage drops below adequate charge for full suction.
We need someone who can teach us to bypass that part of the circuit so it won't cut power to the motor or you need to get a new battery.
Shorting the battery like an Aircraft battery then re-charging won't fix it.

My dyson handheld charges fully, but keeps cutting out when using. About 7 seconds is the longest continual usage time

Fully charged, filters cleaned, vacuum keeps shutting down in and then starts again only to shut off again. the 6 minute time limit is not used up.
