Ensuring Adequate Charger Power

To ensure that your Roomba 690 is receiving adequate power from the charger, first, make sure that the charger is plugged in properly to a working power outlet. Check for any loose connections or damage to the charger cord that may be affecting the power flow.

Next, inspect the charging contacts on both the Roomba and the charger for any debris or corrosion that could be blocking the connection. Use a clean, dry cloth to gently wipe away any dirt or buildup.

If the Roomba still won’t charge, try using a different power outlet to rule out any issues with the original outlet.

If the problem persists, it may be necessary to reset the Roomba by pressing and holding the CLEAN button for 10 seconds. This can help to troubleshoot any software glitches that may be preventing the Roomba from charging properly.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, it is possible that the charger or the Roomba’s battery may need to be replaced. Contact iRobot customer support for further assistance.

Correct Battery Setup

Next, verify that the battery is fully charged before attempting to troubleshoot any issues. If the battery is low, it may not be able to hold a charge properly.

If the battery is fully charged and the Roomba 690 still won’t charge, try resetting the robot vacuum. Press and hold the “Clean” button for 10 seconds to reset the device. This can often resolve any charging issues that may be occurring.

Additionally, clean the charging contacts on both the Roomba 690 and the charging dock. Dust and debris can build up on these contacts, preventing a proper connection for charging.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, it may be necessary to replace the battery with a new one. Contact the manufacturer for assistance in finding a compatible replacement battery for your Roomba 690.
