Ah ha!!! After cleaning the brushes umpteen times I worked out that you have to remove the very small yellow pieces (not the other ones which sit on the end) but the ones right on the end and look for hair that is caught on the spindle. No more clicking noise either!

If you have pets, unscrew the side panel to the cage that holds the brushes. Inside there are many gears. Mine was completely at a stand still because there was so much dog hair. If this is unclogged, it will run like clockwork. Take out brush cage, unscrew the panel on the right side, clean gears.

Makes clicking noise and runs for a couple of minutes and then says error 2 open roomba and clean brush cage-do that and the same thing happens 2 minutes later


Pet hair often gets sucked into the gear box that drives the brushes and can clog it enough to generate this error. you need to remove the CHM (cleaning head module) and open the gear box on it to clean it out... you can also visit iRobots site and buy a new one that has been redesigned to avoid this issue.

Roomba 530 makes a thumping noise every secondand stops with a message to clean he brushes. I have cleaned the brushes and filter but to no availe the thumping continues.


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.

Irobot stops after a few minutes and says plaes


soooo, what is not understood here ?
turn it over, open brushes cage, take each brush out and clean it.
In addition, also clean the sides from any dirt/hair that may stuck in its pivots.
good luck

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.
