Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum ?

Did not use for several weeks, now runs only about 5 minutes, red comes on as if battery is dead

Answers :


What type of red light you get,flashing red light or just red light and your iRobot dies.

Flashing red light with 6 beeps means you need to clean the sensors.There are four sensors that is visible when you put iRobot upside down.Use soft dust wipe to clean the sensors.

flashing normal single red light and it dies it because of the battery is dead:
Since you have not used it for several weeks the battery becomes stone dead.This is normal with batteries.So only you should use it atleast a day in a week to prevent from this issue.You have dead nickle metal hydride batteries.Replace it. Test it by removing the battery and press the power button down for 15 seconds.The charging cycle will restart if its new battery or battery is good else it will not.

Note:In stone dead battery cant conduct volt because the electrons cant move so we called as stone dead battery technically.

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.

After charging overnight, Roomba only runs about 25 minutes before shutting down with a red light.At this point the battery measures 15.13 volts ( about 1.26 volts per cell ) My hobby experience is that a ni/cad or ni/mh battery nominal charged voltage is about 1.2 volts per cell, and that the recommended end point voltage should be about 1.0 volts per cell. Seems like the battery is ok, butsome kind of voltage regulator is shutting things down prematurely. Is this happening, and , if so, how ca

My shark bagless sweeper worked for about 6 months. Like a previous blogger, I caught the edge of a rug that jammed the sweeper, three red lights blink, the brush is free moving yet the sweeper will not work. I did leave it plugged in all the time otherwise it would not run but for minutes. Very disappointed. New battery? what if that doesn't work? is it junk then, money down the drain.

I purchased a brand new P113 Ryobi charger about 2 years ago. It has never worked. If I put a P104 battery in for a charge, it looks like it works correctly. I push the battery tester on the battery itself, and it says full charge, but when I go to use the bateery, it dies right away. I have tried three new P104 batteries. The batteries charge on my charger at work with no problem. The funny thing is, I don't need a battery in the charger and the charger does the same thing, It runs the test

If you have your receipt, check with Ryobi to see if it is still under warranty. It comes with either a 2 or 3 year warranty, depending on when it was purchased. If it is still covered, get it replaced/repaired. If it is not, buy the P117 charger. $3 ... Ryobi P113 18 Volt One Charger 140501001
