Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 550 Vacuum ?

I get a blinking yellow light when recharging my IRobot Roomba 550. What's wrong?


Answers :

I am afraid you are having the problem of old or weak batteries. Old batteries at times tend to show such problems and do not show charge while charging properly. For this purpose, you can use a reliable Nicad Battery Repair Guide through which you can recharge the batteries without any problem and make them work like the new ones within no time, without anyone's help and you can do this all by sitting at home! I tried it and now I never buy new nicad batteries (http://www.nicadbatteryrepair.com/).
If this is an older unit, the battery may be going bad. I think this unit may use nicad or nickel metal hydride batteries. \015\012 If you are somewhat proficient at repairing things and have a volt meter, you can open the unit and check each battery cell for a dead one. If you find a dead cell, (0 volts) replace all of the batteries or you may have others go bad on you. A good source for rechargeable batteries is: http://www.batteries.com/

I have a Roomba 560 (it's still in warranty !!) and, after my summer vacation, it has a problem. When I'm charging Roomba, the orange light blinks (and this is normal!) but this orange blinking continues forever.... the light doesn't change to green. If I detach Roomba from the charger, the light become green and it works normally until the light changes to red and I have to charge it again. WHY, DURING THE CHARGING PHASE, THE LIGHT DOESN'T CHANGE FROM ORANGE-BLINKING TO GREEN? HAVE I

Stops I had my iRobot Roomba 530 in storage for 8 months. I didn't remove the battery. When I plugged it in to recharge it, it did recharge after several resets but it would not dock itself once it had finished. It kept trying but I had to turn it off and manually dock it but it now won't recharge at all. It is totally dead. What is the problem.

Roomba 4270 stops too soon. my roomba got weird all of a sudden. it started not moving all over as it should. so I tore it all down as I had done before and cleaned all the hair and dirt out of every thing I could without getting down to the basic shell. it does work now and does move all over but stops after about 10 minutes. brand new battery so not a battery issue. could I have plugged some of the sensors in the wrong 'plug'

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

My 400 series Discovery Roomba will no longer charge. It shows a green "charged" light, but when I hit clean, all lights/vacuum, etc just go out and it stops. Irobot says that the entire unit needs to be replaced, but it has to have something to do with the charging mechanism. Any Ideas? I've tried the system reset, and removing/replacing the battery. No effect. The robot doesn't give me the "uh-oh" beeps to be charged. It just stops and goes dead.
