Question about Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
Is there any way this can be repaired? It is still attached on the body of the Roomba, but where it goes in the groove on the deck, that is where it is frayed. Is there any hope?
You can solve this problem if you are on the handy side. I had the same problem and fixed it, allowing Roomba to live until getting an all-too-characteristic fatal brain problem later.
You have to open up Roomba and guage the original length of its string. You'll need to make a replacement and cut the first one off. The shaft around which the original rolled to adjust the height is where you must affix the new one. It's a bit tough and you have to be creative (like screwing the string into the chassis with your own screw after drilling a pilot hole) but if you get the length of string right it will wind and unwind just like the original.
I wish I could be a bit more specific but it's been a long time since I pulled this fix. If you're not a tinkerer, don't try it because it is a bit difficult. Best of luck.
