Question about iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum
Bought Roomba 560 for Xmas present. Using it for first time - it keeps stopping during cleaning and says "please remove and clean brushes", yet, brushes are clean!! keeps doing this approx every 10 minutes. I have another Roomba 560 which does not do this and works perfectly on the same carpet without stopping and asking for brushes to be cleaned. Please help!!! i cleaned it thoroughly, and it still kept stopping and saying 'clean brushes. so i just pushed the button again and it cleaned for a while then did it again. i am going to start cussing it after a while, well very soon. the first five times i used it, it worked flawlessly...i want to know what's going on. i cleaned it using my tweezers so i know i got everything out, and the brushes seem to be installed correctly.
Make sure you take off the little cap at the end (the one that spins -- just grab it and pull it straight off) and clean under it too. The rest of the brush may look perfectly clean but what happens is that hair gets stuck under spinning cap and, like a slowly growing washer, it pushes the whole brush toward the gear box. When it gets pushed over enough, the large yellow ring starts to rub against the side of the brush deck making it harder for the motor to turn the brush and you get that "remove and clean brushes" message.
