Having problems with your iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum ?

Scooba in diagnostic mode

\015 According to iRobot support, my Scooba is in a diagnostic mode. All lights are on and it goes up and down the acustic scale. They tell me this was caused by the power and clean button pushed simultaneously. Further, support tells me this mode is for iRobot engineers and that there is no way to get it out. I paid $500 for this thing new and cannot believe that Engineering is so stupid. Does anyone know how to get my Scooba out of diagnostic mode?\015

This is a common issue :)\015\012
\015\012his 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.
  • \015\012
  • Remove the two screws holding the bumper shell in place and remove it.
  • \015\012
  • 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!
  • \015\012
  • 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.)
  • \015\012
  • Gently replace the "sticker" (i.e. control panel) and make sure it's completely flat.
  • \015\012
  • Check to see if it works again. If not, repeat.
  • \015\012
  • Replace the bumper shell and screws....
\015\012thnx.
If it is not on a warranty there few options for you are to disassemble it down to the control panel and either replace it or if you do not feel comfortable with doing the repairs you can ship to do the repair work for you. You can buy parts or trade it here

\015\012But might be the "Clean" button just stuck on because of water damage to the button contacts. Try to pull it. Or you will need to disassemble the control panel and carefully seperate the mylar sheets that make up the contact using a box cutter. After that use isopropyl alcohol to clean the contacts
\015\012But it is only in case if you can do it.
\015\012And dont forget TO UNPLUG THE DIVICE FOM POWER OUTLET
\015\012Good Luck
