Question about iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum

1 Answer

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!

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.

    I have this problem too. I called I-robot they told me to take the yellow caps off the brushes and clean this area...I did this and it still does not work. Mine makes a low clicking noise. I even have gotten brave an took a part the under side of the roomba and cleaned that out...with no success...



    Does anyone know of a roomba repair group?

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.

You also need to pull off the yellow bearings from the end of the brushes (one on the brush one and one on the rubber one) and remove hair from the axle there.

Bin barely fills. Lots of dog hair between brushes and bin, and is now dropping hair balls as it goes around the house


This is why Roomba recommends a thorough clean of your carpet with a standard vac prior to using your mini vac. Once all heavy debris has been removed, the roomba will maintain that state of clean. If you have that much dog hair, you cant expect such a small roller, brush and dustbin to keep up. sounds like you need the dirt dog instead. It is capable of handling heavier demand areas. Or the

I bought Roomba 560 robot vacuum cleaner about 3 weeks ago and it has been cleaned without problem all kind of positions of floors (also carpets) Last friday I anyway mountained nearby of outcoming door...


Roomba won't clean black carpet because it interprets it as a cliff. The sensors under the bumper tell the Roomba that it's about to fall down the stairs and it backs away. Unfortunately, because they're a safety feature, they can't be shut off.

New Roomba 560 beep twice, ask to clean brushes, but no dirt


your roomba is thinking that you need to clean the brushes. if too much load it put on your brush motor--the unit will think that something is wrapped around the brush and slowing down the motor. if you have cleaned your brush and are sure that is not the problem; you need to look for anything else that could be slowing down the brush/motor. If this is inconclusive you need to put your roomba into diagnostic mode by following the procedures in the link below http://swiftracer.com/index.php?myPage=RoombaDiagnosticMode.php

No suction on Roomba 560


Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module. If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!


Remove the Yellow connectors on the end of the brushes and clean around the pin well. If there is too much there, the roomba thinks there is something stuck and goes into clear mode (as if there is a chord stuck).
