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

I got a used Scooba which is not sucking up the solution from the floor after it dispenses it.

Answers :

Turn the tank over. It's transparent on the underside, and there are two oval-shaped openings that stick out more than an inch, located toward the middle. On the far right and far left sides, next to each oval opening, there is another opening. (These are oddly shaped-- one round, one large and curved like Roomba's filter.) Rinse all four of these openings really thoroughly with warm water. The water should go in one opening and come out one of the others. (This should happen when you put water in every one of the four ports.) Do not be surprised if you get clots of dirt out of there. This is generally what keeps Scooba from being able to pick up water. Then, if this works for you, make the tank rinse part of your regular cleaning routine and it shouldn't happen again.
\015\012This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

There are only a few things that can cause the condition you describe.\015\012First would be to verify that the vacuum/blower motor is running. You\015\012can test this by placing your hand on the floor opposite the side where\015\012the charger is connected and see if you feel air movement. If no air is\015\012felt, there's your problem.\015\012Second, there is a valve located in the dirty tank that if blocked will\015\012prevent water pick-up. To resolve and clear this condition will require\015\012several processes to occur at once. Fill the dirty tank half way with\015\012hot water, add Scooba cup of vinegar. Close the stopper and shake the\015\012"Good Grief" out of the tank. This action is necessary and may have to\015\012be repeated several times to clear the flapper valve in the dirty tank.\015\012Third, there may be a poor seal between the tank and the Scooba base.\015\012Verify that both the left and right sides of the tank are close to the\015\012base and equal in distance. If the right side is farther away from the\015\012tank (larger gap) then water pick up will be poor. Some Scooba owners\015\012resort to using duct tape to hold down the tank. Fourth, verify that\015\012the thin rubber pieces on the bottom of the tank are not deformed and\015\012properly seated in the grooves.

Also, make sure that you should clean the Vacuum. Sometimes, they might be clogged with junk.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.
