Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum ?

I have a Roomba, it runs for a few minutes and stops, the battery is fully charged. Any ideas?

Answers :

The battery isn't able to fully charge, it just retains the proper voltage, but lacks the amperage to run because the first and last battery in the pack are dead. Battery replacement time. Try Ebay for best battery pricing.
BTW I use the nicad pack.

I have a iRobot 4150 and have recently experiencing performance issues with the vacuum. Recently, it started stopping about a minute after you turn it on. I thought maybe the battery was the issue, but I bought a replacement. It has worked well for the past 6 months. While it's running it sounds like it is going to die, even though it is fully charged. Any ideas?

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.

Seems like the battery is ok, butsome kind of voltage regulator is shutting things down prematurely. Is this happening, and , if so, how ca
