iRobot Roomba 4105 Bagless Robotic Vacuum\015 This happened with my old battery so I thought the battery was dead and bought a brand new one – but its happening with the new one too! Help!.I charge the battery fully – it pulses red/orange for about 8-10 hours and then the light turns green so I assume its fully charged. However, when I unplug the battery, and then press the on button, the button doesnt go green, and the unit acts like its dead. I tried resetting the battery, checking the battery is seated correctly etc. The weird thing is, this happened with the old battery, then the roomba worked for one cycle with the new battery but now is doing this again with the brand new battery.. \015

If your Roomba® i Series Robot Vacuum is not turning on or is not able to charge, rebooting your robot tends to solve most related issues. To reboot your Roomba: Press and hold the CLEAN button for 20 seconds. After you release the button, the light ring will show a white clockwise swirl while it reboots.
You can easily check the status of the battery in the iRobot® HOME App. A battery icon will be displayed in the top-right corner, indicating the current status of the battery.
With proper care, your robot`s battery should last at least 2-3 years before it needs to be replaced.
If the charging dock light turns off, it indicates that Roomba is docked and charging rightly. The turning off the dock light will not stay longer. So, there is nothing to worry about it.
Roomba® should charge in the following manner: If you are using a charger, the charger should have a solid green power indicator when it is plugged into an outlet. If you are using a Home Base®, the power indicator should blink approximately once every four (4) seconds when plugged into the charger or outlet.
Solid white: Fully charged. Pulsing white: Charging. Pulsing red: Charging, too low to start cleaning. Solid red: Error (tap Button for details).

If the robovac itself isn`t switching on, or is requiring more regular re-charging, you might need to replace the battery in the unit. It`s recommended to purchase a rechargeable battery from the same brand the unit is from. Typically, the rechargeable battery is located in the robot vacuum storage compartment.
Check the wheels for obstructions. Push the wheels up and down and shake out any loose debris that may be trapped in the wheel well. Briskly turn both wheels by hand and make sure they turn freely and that each wheel exhibits the same amount of resistance.

My robot will not charge. Tried multiple resets and new battery from (both suggested by Irobot customer service) but got nowhere. The vacuum did work for a short time (until the new partially charged battery ran out). If I bypass the internal charging circuits and charge directly from the charger (with jumpers)
the robot seems to work fine. Unfortunatey, there is no mechanism to turn off the charge cycle, so this is not practical.
ANSWER : Replace the battery charger

Our roomba 560 wont charge have replaced the battery Tested the charing unit with another roomba that all seems ok put the uncharged battery into another Roomba but im guessing it now has a memory as this wont charge in the other hoover. Any ideas what may be wrong
ANSWER : Try cleaning the battery contacts with a little rubbing alcohol or contact cleaner on a foam swab, or a bit of paper towel. Take a litle time, it doesn’t always dissolve instantly. (Don’t use a pink pencil eraser, it would scrub off the plating that prevents corrosion) Clean both contacts on the battery pack and both of the contacts in the Roomba. Make sure the battery is oriented correctly when you put it back in. Also clean the charging base contacts and the corresponding contacts on the Roomba itself.
.I’m not sure entirely sure what you’re trying to recover – the new battery pack, the old battery pack, or the Roomba itself – but since you can swap parts back and forth, you can clearly isolate the problem. The old battery pack might be rehabilitatted if you have the equipment to recondition it, but if it may not work. The new battery shouldn’t have been harmed that easily.

Seems to charge but then wont come on
ANSWER : Sounds like you bought a defective battery
You can test for this by removing the battery.and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This will restart the.charging cycle as if the battery were new. If it still goes red get a refund and a new one.

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it
ANSWER : It must be the charging transformer. We have already ruled out the vacuum unit. Unfortunately the transformer is not a serviceable part, and will need to be replaced.

I have iRobot Roomba 4210 and I have a problem with charge battery. The battery is new. When I charging a battery in other iRobot Roomba the battery was full charged. When I charging in my iRobot Roomba the battery was empty. My fast charger is OK.

We have the water hooked up at the back of machine. there is a spout for the water to come in and fill the ice tray.but is does not. If we turn the water on it fills up the space under the ice basket. I keep getting red light and then the two smal llight one ice and one water come on. We can hear the motor trying to fill the ice try and then lights come on. Please help me this so I can use this product. It did not come with a manual.
ANSWER : The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn’t seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
With the fill tube blocked with ice the water can drip down the back wall or drip into the ice bin or just stop up. You can use a hairdryer to thaw the tube out.

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can’t seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John
ANSWER : It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing needs to be replaced.

I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it doesn’t seem to have any suction and there seems to be a space between the canister and the bottom of the vacumm where the canister sits. At that area, you can feel air coming out when trying to vacumm and it just doesn’t pick up, it seems to be just blowing stuff around.
ANSWER : You need to really look at it some thing is out of line you shooed not have
.any spaces in the top or bottom
.pull the canister back out and look at the pins that you lined up with the
.top and the canister you might have missed arrows that need to be lined
.up so it fits tightly in its holder
