Question about Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
My Roomba is about 1 year old.I have it set up to vacuum everyday but after a few minutes it shuts down and says please clean brushes even though they are clean.Sometimes it says please inspect the wheels even though when I do there are no obstructions
The brushes are clean on the outside, but probably not inside of the little yellow contact on the end. Also the junk that collects on the brushes finds its way into the gear box. Mine kept shutting down w/ the "Please remove and clean Roomba's brushes" message. I finally gave up and took it apart. There was a surprising amount of junk in the gear box. After I got it apart, I cleaned it out and I even used a straight pin and a pair of tweezers to get all of the gunk out. Now it runs like new. I'm no mechanic, but I used to help my daddy fix things around the house. I posted my solution to the problem and it has worked for a couple of other people too.
