You probably have the manual, but here's the link to the Scooba 5800 manual anyway - just in case this would be useful to you: --> http://www.irobot.com/images/homesupport/5800_Scooba_Manual.pdf You could use a voltmeter to check the battery, but only a few months use shouldn't be enough to wear it out. If you don't have a load-tester to verify the battery's load-capacity, then you can check the voltage drop. (Assuming you can get it to contact the Scooba's circuits.) To do this, just check the battery voltage, apply a load by inserting it in the machine and turning it on, then check the battery voltage again. An excessive drop in voltage may indicate the battery needs replacing. However, the red blinking light is Scooba's indicator that it doesn't detect the battery at all. The first thing to do in this case is to clean the electrical contacts on the battery and in the Scooba. Use a damp cloth and a bit of toothpaste to rub the contacts clean on the battery and in the machine. (Toothpaste has mild abrasives in it and will clean the electric contacts without damaging them.) Make sure that both the battery and the Scooba are clean and dry before re-inserting the battery. Also, if the electric contacts in the machine are flexible matal tabs then verify that the tabs are standing up high enough to make good contact with the battery contacts. Hopefully the battery just needs it's contacts cleaned for your unit to work, but test the battery if you are sure that they are clean and seated properly to the contacts in the machine. If the battery appears to be failing, then contact www.irobot.com to cheack and see if they are still covered under your machine's warranty. Hope this helps! :)

Check and make sure the vaccume port is properly installed. I also went on their website, and they do have a faq about this. I have included the link to the site for your convenience: http://homesupport.irobot.com/cgi-bin/irobot_homesupport.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2&p_created=1153319315&p_sid=DCawHwJi&p_accessibility=&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTEmcF9wcm9kcz0zMSwzMyZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9Mi4zMyZwX2N2PSZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPWFuc3dlcnMuc2VhcmNoX2ZubCZwX3BhZ2U9MSZwX3NlYXJjaF90ZXh0PXdhdGVy&p_li=&p_topview=1

SOURCE: Scooba in diagnostic mode
If it is not on a warranty there few options for you are to disassemble it down to the control panel and either replace it or if you do not feel comfortable with doing the repairs you can ship to do the repair work for you. You can buy parts or trade it here
But might be the "Clean" button just stuck on because of water damage to the button contacts. Try to pull it. Or you will need to disassemble the control panel and carefully seperate the mylar sheets that make up the contact using a box cutter. After that use isopropyl alcohol to clean the contacts
But it is only in case if you can do it.
And dont forget TO UNPLUG THE DIVICE FOM POWER OUTLET

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.

ours did that, the other persons post helped, we took everything apart and cleaned every inch of it. there was some dog hair trapped inside of it right in front of the sensor. we put everything back together and it works great now! we just google "how to take apart a scooba" and followed the description and pictures, just be careful when you do it, we still had 4 screws left over afterwards, dont know what we missed but it works so that works for me! good luck!
