Ive had that problem and what i did was put the tank in the kitchen sink and turned the water on blast and let it everything flush out through the diffeiirent outings in the tank. Also (i think this was the actual solution) i got the little blue squeeze ball thingy and placed the tip over the little white tip (or light blue tip) that lays on top of the unit (you will see it after you remove the tank) and just squeezed and squeezed the ball over and over and over again. Its the same way as you would prime the tank to get the water flowing. I noticed when i did that a tiny white piece of lint came out as welll..so it was probably clogged. but nevertheless, that is alway a must, to prime the machine by placing the tip of that squueze ball over the little nozzle tip thats on top of the unit (which is under the tank itself). )

It leaves water after finished. That's the first time I use it but it leave water on the floor and it stops.


According to iRobot make sure that the Scooba is clean, including the parts (vacuum hose & filter, bottom roller)
Make sure the battery if fully charged, and that you let it complete the cycles!

After running for a normal cleaning cycle only about 1/3 of the water from the clean water tank has been moved to the dirty water tank.


this is by design. not all the water from the clean water tank will end up in the dirty tank, some is left on the floor, some evaporates.

My Scooba floor cleaner "check tank" light stays on even after it's refilled and everything cleaned but still will not work. It just keeps beeping at me when I try to start it. How do I reset it or get...


Flush out the solution valve with water (aka "prime the pump"). Use water, not just air, because water will clear any obstructions that may be in the lines. Also, rinse your tank through the four ports on the *underside*-- one round, two oval, one large and curved, all four in a row. Rinse them really thoroughly with warm water, then refill the tank and try the Scooba again. If it doesn't work, call us: 1-877-855-8593.

Scooba problem


Does it put down clean water onto the floor? If so, rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank really thoroughly. You might have a clog; it's not difficult to dislodge it if you use enough warm water. Also make sure that the squeegees on the cleaning head cartridge (which holds the brush) are straight and in good condition.

If it doesn't put down water at all, try the tank rinse anyway, as it can help with that issue, too.

Irobot scooba 5800 spins quickly then sets off backwards


Remove and clean all of the wheels, and make sure the cliff sensors under the bumper are clean. Tap the bumper with your hand-- really smack it a couple of times. It sounds like the Scooba believes it's stuck against an obstacle.

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 does not release water


I tried the straw on the solution valve. Worked last time, but no luck this time. I ended up using a can of compressed air on the solution outlets on the bottom of the unit (in the trough in front of the brush).
