Probably, the battery has little service life left and should be replaced. You might let the machine run until there is no light showing at all, recharge fully, then try using it again. If you know someone that has a similar unit, try swapping batteries to check. Good luck!

New Roomba Battery Not Holding Charge - charged once then died


It is possible for the charging system inside the roomba to call it quits. What I did to remedy this, since my roomba was out of warranty and I did not want to scrap it, was to buy a charging base on ebay. This charging base accepts different types of roomba batteries and even the scooba battery. The inconvenience is if you have a newer model roomba that has the battery inside, then you will need to remove the screws on the bottom plate to remove the battery. Hope this helps.

Roomba 4210 won't start


  • Lift Roomba off the floor and place it in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle.
  • If Roomba did not resume cleaning, lift Roomba and turn it over.* Inspect the Side Wheels for dirt or obstructions.
  • Test the Side Wheels by pushing them in and out and making sure they rotate freely. Place Roomba in the center of the room and restart the clean cycle

    What are these 2 blinking lights on my irobot roomba?


    "The Charge Indicator Light is located immediately to the right of the power button on Roomba Red and Roomba (sage). On Roomba Discovery and Discovery SE, the Charge Indicator Light is incorporated into the power button. Please refer to the table below to determine what the Charge Indicator Light is telling you.

    * Pulsing Amber - Charging
    * Green - Fully Charged
    * Amber - Partially Discharged
    * Red - Almost Fully Discharged
    * Flashing Red - Fully Discharged"
    At the end of a cleaning mission, Roomba will tell you if it has successfully completed it's mission or not:

    GREEN = MISSION COMPLETE

    YELLOW = MISSION ABANDONED (Check robot's brushes, etc.)

    YELLOW RED POWER BUTTON = BATTERY DEPLETED (Scheduler Models)

    RED YELLOW POWER BUTTON = BATTERY DEPLETED (Discovery Models)
    number of beeps after ?uh-oh? :

    No beeps: A wheel is stuck or is not touching the ground. Pick up the robot, place it down securely on the floor and touch the clean button to restart the cycle.

    1 beep: The main brushes cannot turn. Turn over Roomba and remove the brush guard by pushing the two yellow tabs. Remove the brushes, clear any obstructions, and replace them again.

    2 beeps: The side brush cannot turn. Turn over Roomba. Look to see if something is wrapped around the side brush. Remove the side brush with a screw driver and check for string or hair that may be wrapped around it.

    3 beeps: The vacuum cannot run Remove and empty Roomba?s bin.

    4 beeps: A wheel motor cannot run Your Roomba may be stuck or something may be wrapped around a wheel. Look for something wrapped around the wheels. Push them in and out and make sure they turn easily.

    5 beeps: The cliff sensors have failed or are blocked. Turn over Roomba and clear any debris that might be caught underneath the front bumper in the cliff sensors. You can also use compressed air to clean them out.

    6 beeps: Wheel obstruction or robot attempting to drive over an obstacle. Turn over Roomba and remove any obstructions that prevent the wheels from seating all the way up into Roomba?s body. Also, remove any obstacles that Roomba could drive over.

    7 or 8 beeps: Not applicable Roomba?s beep codes do not include 7 or 8 beeps. If you are getting an error with 7 or 8 beeps, try counting again or contact iRobot Customer Care.

    9 beeps: Sensor error Please contact iRobot Customer Care.

    10 beeps: Roomba is stuck Pick up Roomba and start it again somewhere else. Use a virtual wall or other barrier to keep Roomba away from the
    place it got stuck.

    Your Roomba may be experiencing an issue where the battery is deeply discharged and may need to charge longer than the standard 3 hours. (or 7 hours if you have a standard charger)

    Even with the charging light showing green (this indicates a fully charged battery) the robot is still charging. If your Roomba exhibits behavior where it charges for a short time then runs for a short time you will need to do the following.

    1. Plug the charger into Roomba (if you have a home base be sure to plug directly into Roomba instead of using the home base, this will ensure the robot's charging cycle is not interrupted.)

    2. After the Roomba's charging indicator goes to solid green please keep the Roomba on the charger for an additional 72 hours. (3 days)

    3. After the 72 hours (3 days) has passed, turn your Roomba on and begin a normal cleaning cycle. If this works successfully it may take several uses for the battery to get back up to the performance it once had.

    If this does not correct the problem, please call customer support at 877-855-8593

    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

    My irobot (Roomba)is only working for 10 mins then


    It should take about 6 hrs to charge. I had the same problem and reset the charging circuit. 1) Charge it until the green light comes on. 2) Unplug and pull battery out. 3) hold down the power on button 15-30 seconds. 4.) Put the battery back in, plug in the charger (direct - not through the dock) and charge for 72 hrs. Then, run at Max clean until the "I'm dead" tune plays.

    I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin...


    Ok, this is a "Brush Height Adjustment" issue. It will probably work great on a hard surface but on carpet the brushes bog. If you've taken the unit apart already...Sorry....do it again. When you do, you'll see a String which allows the brushes to "Float" on different surface heights. Loosen the screw a little and pull a bit more string through. Re Tighten the screw and put it together enough for a test run. Now reset the roomba.To reset the Roomba, power the Roomba on, and press the Spot, and Dock buttons together for at least 8 seconds. Until it plays a tune. The clock, and any schedule is erased at this time. Try running the Roomba with the dust bin removed to see the brushes spin easier.

    Second method, is taking off the bottom cover, and removing the battery. While it's removed, and not plugged into the charger, press the clean button for at least 20 seconds. This will erase the memory. Replace battery, and cover. Run the Roomba to see if the brushes start to spin. You can also remove the brush housing by removing the 4 screws and reseating it, to see if it was a bad connection, since you have the bottom cover off.

    Turns in circles, acts like it hits a virtual wall then stops


    Reboot is probably not your solution. Your Roomba will react to invisible signals or 'interference' from other electrical appliances as well as the invisible wall boxes. You can clearly see how this happens when a Roomba gets near your computer or other device that is on. Also, the Roomba will go in circles when the dirt chamber is full or it thinks it's full. Try a thorough clean of all major parts including the brushes. Sometimes this activity will occur when the brushes get snarled on thread or carpet fibers.

    Roomba cuts off after a minute or so.


    If you have a 400 series Roomba, try removing the battery, then holding down the power button for ten seconds, then recharging the unit before you run it again.

    If you have a 500 series Roomba, don't take out the battery-- just press and hold the "spot" and "dock" buttons for about fifteen seconds. The Roomba will play a tune, and you can then charge it and try running it again later.

    Roomba does not do anything


    My Roomba has had a battery issue for some time now. I haven't used it in quite a while (months, years, I don't know for sure) because it would complain of a discharged battery after only a few minutes of cleaning. However, now when I finally tried to use it again, a new problem appeared.

    Now, it charges normally, if I plug the cord directly into the Roomba. It will not mate with the home base, however, even if I place it on the contacts manually.

    When I start it, all the buttons come on green. I then press a button to make it begin cleaning. The motor whirs up and runs for about 1 second, then it shuts down. About one second later, the power light and lights behind whichever button(s) I pressed (to give it a job) flash green then the system sits silent, and doesn't do anything else.
