You can revive the dead nicd batteries in your tools.
There is a simple guide that can fix all nicd batteries in few minutes, available here.
Either the battery won't accept a charge, the Roomba has lost track of the battery capacity and doesn't charge it, or the battery or charger contacts are dirty.
\015\012Try this - remove base plate, remove battery, clean contacts on battery and roomba, count to ten, reinstall battery, reattach base plate, clean charger contacts and charging contacts charge roomba. If no joy, then based on your description, the battery pack has a bridged cell and you should replace the battery. The usual cause is a fully charged NiCd or NimH cell was allowed to self-discharge. NiCd and NiMh should be discharged before being stored and not recharged until needed. (Lead-Acid and Lithium batteries are justthe opposite and should be stored fully charged and recharged periodically.)

Help Hi I have had my irobot roomba model 4000 now for 3 months now, I just LOVE it sooo much. I have used it everyday since I got it. But now it is not working.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

I have a Roomba Discovery. In the past, I had to replace the charging dock. Then the battery died so I did not use it for two years. I finally bought a new battery and used the Roomba.

Roomba Schedular I have a Roomba Scheduler and it has worked great until recently. Suddenly it quit working. When it is charging the power light goes from red to green as it should, showing it is ready to use. When we turn it on to use, it will only go on for a few seconds then it shuts off like it is out of power. It is like it isn't really charged. Is there something I can try to make it work?

Let it charge for a full 24, or even 48 hours, regardless of the green light. If it still dies you probably need a new battery.. or worse. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu
