Having problems with your Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum ?

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


Answers :

The problem is not with the charger itself but it is with the battery inside the Roomba. It sunds like one or more of the cells has gone bad so its not holding the same charge as it did. I would recomend sending it in while the warranty is still valid so they will replace it. Your charger and the Roomba itself should be fine.


A few tips to keep the battery working longer:
Only charge the battery when it is drained all the way to zero. It will help keep the battery active.

Only charge the battery until it is full and then disconect it from the power source. It will keep it active longer plus it will help keep your electric bill down.
The best thing you can do is to contact the manufacturer, since they are the ones who would know for sure if the charger or unit was defective. I would think it's some kind of voltage sensor or comparator in the Roomba itself, but since the unit works, it may not deter the functioning of the unit at all.
\015\012If you have a voltmeter, you can measure the charger output and charged battery voltage, it should be 22.5 v for the charger output and the battery should read 17 - 18 v.
\015\012Check with support, just to make sure. Good luck, and hope this helps.

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?

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5

Hi, my Dyson DC16 works fine but after removing from charge base following recharge the red and green lights remain lit and the unit will not operate until i remove the battery and reconnect to vacuum,this extinguishes the lights and now can use with no problem.I guess that the charge control within the vacuum is not recognising that the unit has been removed from charge,is there a solution? Thanks
