Question about iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum
What type of red light you get,flashing red light or just red light and your iRobot dies.
Flashing red light with 6 beeps means you need to clean the sensors.There are four sensors that is visible when you put iRobot upside down.Use soft dust wipe to clean the sensors.
flashing normal single red light and it dies it because of the battery is dead:
Since you have not used it for several weeks the battery becomes stone dead.This is normal with batteries.So only you should use it atleast a day in a week to prevent from this issue.You have dead nickle metal hydride batteries.Replace it. Test it by removing the battery and press the power button down for 15 seconds.The charging cycle will restart if its new battery or battery is good else it will not.
Note:In stone dead battery cant conduct volt because the electrons cant move so we called as stone dead battery technically.
post a comment for further assistance.
