Question for Roomba owners

Posted by socks12345 (My Page) on

When you use your Roomba to clean a room with carpeting, how long does it work before it stops? Mine is only going about 1/2 hour, and I think it used to go longer.

I did leave it unused and unplugged for quite some time. Is it possible the battery is not good? Do the batteries need to be replaced?

call Roomba and let them know. it seems that they have updated their batteries and memory within the past year or so. They sent me a new battery and something to update the machine...can't remember what now.

Thanks, I will be in touch with them.

Mine goes until its wheels fill up with fuzz and then it asks me to "Clean Roomba's wheels." I do so and it goes merrily on its way. Several hours total. Our gameroom carpet is very difficult to vacuum; it has an extremely deep pile and pad and acts like Velcro to lint, animal hair, etc. In a perfect world, I'd tear it out, but it's in good shape, so I'll wait.
