How to Reset the Roomba Battery


The iRobot Roomba is a miniature robotic vacuum cleaner. Some Roombas experience a battery charging problem. In these situations, the battery power cycle may be shortened or nonexistent. The manufacturer of the Roomba has determined a fix to this problem: resetting the battery. In most situations, resetting the battery solves the intermittent power cycle problem and restores your Roomba to its original operating state.

  • Turn the "Power" switch off and flip your Roomba over, exposing its bottom.

  • Depress the tabs on each side of the battery pack; lift the battery pack from the Roomba.

  • Press and hold the "Power" button for five to 10 seconds.

  • Reinsert the battery into the Roomba. Push the battery tabs down to secure the battery.

  • Connect your wall outlet charger to your Roomba. Let the battery charge for 72 hours.

Tips & Warnings

  • If resetting the battery does not solve your problem, contact iRobot Roomba support.
  • Do not interrupt the Roomba during the 72-hour charging cycle. Uninterrupted charging is necessary to complete the resetting procedure.
