As for which one has the problem, I would say it has to be the battery. Rechargeable batteries of all types are known to have similar characteristics, one of which is discharging the batteries to maintain good rechargeablility. At least one person has demonstrated this for the Scooba battery in the roombareview.com forums when he brought a "dead" battery back to life. He allowed the battery to slowly and completely discharge using a 12-volt automobile bulb, followed by recharging the battery on the Scooba external charger. This procedure brought his "dead" battery back to a full charge! However, other forum members have reported that many have experienced problems with Scooba battery life, and that as a consequence of this iRobot will replace your battery if you call them and report a short-life battery problem. You can contact iRobot at (800) 727-9077 if you would like to report a battery problem and request a replacement.

You need to replace your silencing filter on the inside. I recommend calling Health Mor at 800-344-1840 and having their Tech. walk you through replacing that filter. It should have been replaced at about 2 years. It catches the carbon off the motor, but if dust is getting through it can clog it and cause your motor to overheat.

don't buy a new battery yet. you can reset the battery by charging for 16 hours, if this does not work, you need to take the battery out, push and hold the power button on your roomba for at least 15 seconds then reinstall the battery. plug in the charger directly to roomba not the docking station and charge until the battery light on the roomba is green. do not interrupt the battery charging cycle. after, leave the roomba charging for an additional 3 days or 72 hours. after, run roomba in max mode and run it till the battery is completely depleted. this will improve the battery overtime by charging again for 72 hours and depleting the battery. do this 3 or 4 times. and the battery should get better
