Having problems with your iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum ?

My scooba 5810 won't run

\015 My scooba 5810 says check tank and won't do anything. I tried putting plain water and a pinch of salt but that didn't do anything. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Fill the dirty water tank with hot water and giving the tank a good shake then pour the water out. Continue to do this until the water coming out of the dirty side of the tank is clean.
The tech support at I-Robot told me to fill both tanks with salt water, (the same amount you would gargle with) and shake as hard as you can (in your bathtub to avoid a cleanup). I just did this and had huge dirty hairballs come out and don't even own a pet.

Hello. My scooba 5800 had a check tank light on. I used a straw on the valve and that fixed the problem. Now the scooba runs like nothing is wrong, but there is no actual cleaning going on!
