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

My scooba is not picking up all the water.

\015 Shouldn't the floor be left dry.\302\240 i just got this not too long ago, but i understood that it would dry also.\302\240 could it be that the squeegee thing isn't attached quite right or that it needs replaced.\302\240 it wasn't brand new when i got it.\015

Answers :

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

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will still not pick up the used water. I found a tear in the interior hose leading to the receiving tank and repaired throughly with electrical tape. Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?
