Question about iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum
The horizontal spinning side brush is a known failure item in those units. Chances are the side brush motor has gone bad. Check first to make sure that the motor isn't just bound up with hair or something.
Fortunately, it's easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.. See this video link on iRobot's site: http://www.irobot.com/hrd_right_rail/roomba_rr/roomba_fam/RoombaFam_rr_howitworks.html
Click on the bottom link in that video to see how to remove the bottom plate and remove that side brush motor with just 2-3 screws. New motors are available from iRobot for $15 or from places like www.RoboticVacParts.com for ~ $10 links here:
