Having problems with your iRobot 5900 Scooba Robotic Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Scooba says check tank and won't move.

\015 My scooba looks like it's charging ok but when I press the clean button it just says check tank and won't do anything else.I have checked everything on there and it all seems to be in place battery is quite new less than a year old with not a huge amount of use any ideas?\015\012Thanks Jennifer.\015

Answers :

Rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank with warm water, particularly the round opening that covers your Scooba's vacuum port and the curved one that matches the filter. Odds are, there's a clog in there and your Scooba knows it. Rinse the two oval ports as well, as thoroughly as you can.
\015\012Also, try priming the pump with water. The iRobot website shows how to do this under the Scooba troubleshooting section.
\015\012Then run the unit with water and vinegar (in place of the Clorox Cleaning Solution) if possible.

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! It goes the full cycle, but no liquid comes out. The vac part seems to be working b/c there is fluff in the vac when it's done. Please help!
