Ensure that the front caster can spin freely, pivot, and rotate. Remove the caster by pulling it out and clear any dirt. Reinsert the wheel and lightly push the wheel up and down

    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

    Scooba 5800 starts to charge then beeps loudly


    1) test the batteries very well in another device.
    2) test the charges if working properly.
    3) test the power inside from scuba, some electronic components like diode, or capacitor is draining the batteries. repair or rreplace.

    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.

    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 in diagnostic mode


    This is a common issue :)
    his morning, I turned on my Scooba and it started beeping a scale of tones and blinking all its lights in sequence. After an hour or so of resetting, cleaning, disassembling, researching, and scratching my head, I stumbled across the solution on Roomba Review. But, for me at least, it was even easier than all of that. I don't have any of my own pictures for this procedure, but it's pretty straight forward.
    • Remove the battery and power.
    • Remove the two screws holding the bumper shell in place and remove it.
    • Carefully peel up the sticker with the control buttons on it. This sticker is actually the control panel. There is a data cable attached to it just below the "Clean" button. Be careful not to break it!
    • Clean the surface under the sticker with some isopropyl alcohol. (I didn't actually have to do this, but I'm sure it doesn't hurt.)
    • Gently replace the "sticker" (i.e. control panel) and make sure it's completely flat.
    • Check to see if it works again. If not, repeat.
    • Replace the bumper shell and screws....
    thnx.

    Stuck on check tank indicator


    If your Scooba's Green Check Tank light is coming on immediately on startup, please try the following steps:

    1. Remove and reseat Scooba's battery, ensuring that you hear it click into place.
    2. Remove and reseat the brush head
    3. Remove and reseat the vacuum port and filter. When replacing the filter, be sure to press firmly into the hole. There is a magnet on the filter that must connect with the magnet on the Scooba.
    4. Fill Scooba’s Clean Tank with approximately 1 cup of cold water, shake vigorously, and empty it to remove any debris in the tank.
    5. Empty the Dirty Tank, refill with water, and slosh it around to pick up any sediment. Empty the Dirty Tank again.
    6. Refill Scooba’s Clean Tank with water, adding a pinch or two of table salt. Run the Scooba. If the issue persists, please follow the steps below:

    With the tank removed, press the Power button and then the Clean button.

    If the robot tries to start a cleaning cycle, power off the robot and repeat, pressing the Power button first and then the Clean button. If the pump makes a “whirring” or squirting sound and the robot does not start a cleaning cycle (Check Tank indicator will light), this indicates that the pump is working. Replace the tank and try starting a new cleaning cycle with the tank on.

    If Scooba does begin a cleaning cycle the second time you press the Power and then the Clean button with the tank removed, the pump valve could be blocked with debris. Using a turkey baster, straw or sports bottle, force water through Scooba’s solution valve. Confirm that the baster, straw or sports bottle fits snugly over Scooba’s solution valve, push water through the system at least three times, and then try re-starting Scooba.

    Below is a link to a diagram of these steps for visual reference:
