Hi samuelmessin,

You will need to reset the Roomba charging system. Here's how you will do it:

1. First, remove the battery.

2. Then, hold down the power button for at least 5 seconds.

3. Afterwards, put the battery back in.

4.Plug the Charger into Roomba (avoid using the Home Base® if you have one so as to ensure the Roomba's charging cycle is not interrupted.)

5. Please charge the Battery until the Roomba Power light is solid green and keep the Roomba on the Charger for an additional 72 hours (3 days). Note: Do not interrupt this charging cycle.

6. Once charging is done, in Max mode, run the Roomba for one complete cycle without a Home Base present, to deplete the battery.

Keep track of the run time and if it has improved, repeat repeat the Roomba battery reset procedure a several times.If your Roomba does not have Max mode, run several Clean cycles until Roomba stops and plays the "dead battery" song.

If it does not improve, I suggest you to purchase a new Roomba APS battery or standard battery for your Roomba 550, which can be purchased on the robot shop website.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi,

    This is most likely that the battery is no longer holding the charge and needs replacement.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

Amber flashing light while on home base. New, pulled tab, placed on dock. First time said charge err1, took out battery and replaced. Now just flashes amber. Is this correct?


Your manuals are here. Flashing lights must be covered. A quick look at the site says flashing red is bin full. In fact, I found it. Flashing Amber is CHARGING.

Roomba troubleshooting roomba irobot 700 series wont work?


What sort of light do you see when you correctly place it onto it's charger? Green light is what you want to see. Otherwise it doesn't have a charge. I would check to see if it needs a cleaning.

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.

IRobot 530 charges intermittently


Reset the Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for fifteen seconds, then release and listen for the tune. Then charge the Roomba overnight. The next time you run it, the unit should run longer. If not, call support and let them know you may have a battery problem. 1-877-855-8593 (I strongly encourage you to have the Roomba with you if you call.)
