Having problems with your Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum ?

The light on my Roomba flashes amber very quickly when plugged in directly with the adapter. what does this mean? it usually flashes slower when docked.


Answers :

If Roomba senses that its battery has been significantly discharged, \015\012Roomba will enter a special 16-hour refresh charge cycle. When the \015\01216-hour refresh charge is initiated, the CLEAN light will quickly pulse \015\012red/amber. Do not interrupt the cycle once it has begun. The 16-hour \015\012refresh charge cycle is initiated by the robot and cannot be started \015\012manually.
\015\012\015\012For long-term storage, always remove the battery from Roomba and \015\012store in a cool, dry place. Blue or black batteries should be stored \015\012after Roomba has been used. Yellow batteries should be stored after \015\012being fully charged.
\015\012\015\012\015\012Battery capacity reduces overtime and usually the battery will need to \015\012be replaced each year.

My Roomba 4210 plays the dead battery song 10 seconds after I press Clean, Spot or Max. But I notice that I can put my roomba in diagnostic mode (with brushes, wheels etc) for long periods of time with plenty of strong power. Why won't it clean for more than five seconds without that dreadful tune, flashing power light and an amber status light?

For my roomba 540 the dock station light is on. To dock the roomba goes towards the dock but when it reaches the dock tries to find the metal contacts, goes over them but is unable to dock. It used to dock fine. I did open the roomba to check its battery but I think it still worked after I opened it.

I bought Roomba 560 and love it. It didn?t come with a lighthouse so I bought one on Ebay. When I put the batteries in it the green light on top flashes 5 or 6 time very quick and then stops, it doesn?t flash after that. When placed in front of the Roomba in either mode, virtual wall or lighthouse it doesn?t direct the Roomba. The question is, is there a process to marry the two units together or do you think the lighthouse is defective? Thank you Gary

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.

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 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. It worked great. It did not find the docking station, and died. I have been charging it and the red light pulsates, but after 16 hours, it still is not charged...any ideas?

I installed a new battery in my Roomba 540. It charges and runs directly with power cord but will not charge on dock. When I push the dock button, it acts like it "sees" the dock and approaches it and even slides on, but then gets back off again and just keeps going back and forth until I turn it off.
