Roomba Amber light instead of Green

Postby hithesh123 » January 14th, 2013, 12:58 pm

Took out roomba after a while(~3weeks). It was just sitting and getting charged.
It cleaned one room and ran out of charge. I charged it and took it to the other room. When I turned it on, the power button light was amber. It was green when it was at the charging base.
I tried again later. This time the light was green while cleaning for a few mins and then went back to orange.

Replace battery! Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

I Just got new aerovac bin and side brushes.

It runs for 25mins and then the power goes off.

How do I reset the charging cycle?

You can reset the Roomba by removing the battery then reinstall it.
