Took Roomba apart to clean and now the pick up brushes start and stop during cleaning. The vaccum is clean but will not constantly spin. Runs great but pick up brushes start and stop. Is there a number...


You can go to www.iRobot.com . This is the roomba website. You should be able to find replacement parts, customer support, videos or the Roomba product, and more.
When you cleaned your Roomba, did you also clean the wheel wells and outer most edges of the brush brush cartridges? There can be lint, threads, and at my house, cat hair, wrapped around the outermost edges of the brush cartridges.
I hope my suggestions help. If so, please contact Fixya and rate my solution.
Thanks and Good Luck!

I have a 550 that will not **** it drives around and thinks its doing a great job but does not pick up any dirt does anyone know what the problem is or where I can get it fixed ?


Have you cleaned out the dirt compartment? This compartment is very small and fills fast ... Roomba does not have a vacuum in it ... it just sweeps so make sure the brushes are working and in good order ... to test the brushes hold it up and turn it on make sure your fingers are clear of wheels and moving brushes before turning it on. Visually inspect to see if brushes are turning also check for hair and string around wheels and brushes.
dont forget to rate me Thx :) and good luck

Brushes on my roomba don't seem to be spinning.


Try running your roomba with the dust bin removed to see if the brushes turn. Take the brushes out and make sure they're clean. You may need to replace the brushes if they're worn. Failing that, you can find instructions on how to take your roomba apart. Take out the brush assembly and open the screws on the side of it to expose the gears that drive the brushes. There will probably be a lot of gunk in there jamming them up. You might need to check the motor too.

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!


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.

Makes a clicking noise and stops after about 5 minutes


Ladies and gents,

I can't bear you moaning like this honestly! Here is the solution-

get your self a tiny 4 headed (philips screw driver) and test your ROOMBA

1) REMOVE THE RUBBER BRUSH AND RUN ROOMBA ON JUST THE BIG BRUSH

2) CHECK IF ROOMBA STARTES CLICKING AND ODES THE SAME THING

3) IF NOT PUT THE RUBBER BRUSH BACK AND REMOVE THE BIG BRUSH AND THEN CHECK IF CLICKING CONTINUES.

4) ONE OF THEM WILL BE THE CULPRIT. REMOVE THAT BRUSH AND YOU WILL SEE TWO 4 HEADED(PHILLIPS) SCREWS ON EACH END OF THE OFFENDING BRUSH- LOOSEN THE SCREW AND YOU SHOULD SEE LOADS OF HAIR AND FIBER ROUND THE BEARING.

5)TAKE THE BEARING OUT AND REMOVE ALL THIS HAIR-YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW MUCH THERE IS

6) PUT THINGS BACK TOGETHER AND ROOMBA WILL RUN LIKE NEW

i PROMISE!

Greetings doreen f,

The roomba unit carries a one year manufacturers warranty, so you should be able to bring it into your local Best Buy™ store and have them try to repair it.

I hope this helps!

The plastic gears that drive the sweep brushes strip out easily on these. You can get the company to repair it for you but they make it a big hassle. I opted to buy the gear set on EBAY and replace them myself.
