SOURCE: Brushes are clean, but Roomba stops and says clean brushes

I decided to take it apart and see if I could fix it because even if something inside went "SPROING" and I couldn't get it back together, it wouldn't be any worse than it was already.

FIrst, remove the dust bin part and the brushes. Then, there are four screws on the bottom gray panel which have to be removed first in order to get to the gears which hold the brushes. I did not remove the little sweeper brush on the front, but I just slide it through the hole in the gray panel.

Then in order to get out the orange section which actually holds the brushes, there are four screws which must be removed. The orange section is attached to a blue section. This entire unit comes out by sliding it toward the area where the dust bin goes, being careful not to tear the light gray rubber gasket which covers the side.

Once that section is removed, there are two screws on each side. These screws hold the orange thing to the blue thing. Once the screws are removed, lift up only the side which has the white squares into which the brushes are inserted. These are actually the back side of little gears. There is a face plate on the outside of the orange part on this end. The other end contains a bunch of wires and I was careful not to disconnect any of them.

The face plate has six screws which must all be removed. Use caution when removing the face plate. Hold it up so that all of the stuff doesn't fall out. It has a bunch of gears, little brass looking fittings and grease. Take care to only remove the gears which have the squares which hold the brushes AND do it one at a time unless you like working jigsaw puzzles. I used tweezers and a pin to clean the "gunk" consisting of hair, fuzz, etc., out of the little gears.

Reverse the process to put it back together. Hazel, my little Roomba, played me a happy little song and immediately went back to work. She seems as good as new.

SOURCE: irobot roomba 570 brush not spinning

Unscrew and remove the side brush. There is probably a wad of hair and dirt underneath it that's keeping it from spinning. When it's clean, *snap* the brush back on, then screw it into place. If it still doesn't turn, you'll need a new module. Call support: 877-855-8593. Good luck.

SOURCE: My Irobot Roomba keeps saying that I need to clean

Perform the troubleshooting found at the iRobot website: http://tinyurl.com/nh5c8a (I promise that really does go to the right site.) That troubleshooting will enable you to determine exactly what's causing this problem. (The Easy Way: Run the Roomba minus the dustbin and look in the back. Is the brush turning? If not, there's the problem. Give support a call at 1-877-855-8593 and they'll let you know how to replace the necessary part.)

SOURCE: my roomba keeps telling me

I had the identical problem. I cleaned the brush but the problem persisted. I then put in a new brush that was provided in the box and the problem vanished. I have since used the cleaning tool on the old brush and will try and reinstall it to see if my cleaning worked. In any case a new brush will do the job.

SOURCE: roomba 540 brushes are clean,

I think I can guess what the problem is - exactly the problem I made with my roomba when it was new: I didn't realise that the bearing came off the end. Is the end of your brush assembly yellow? If so, it pulls off. I'm going to take a flier and guess that you didn't know that, and your bearing is jammed up with hair. This is what the bearings look like:

Make sure they spin freely!

Why won't my Roomba start when I press a green "clean" button?


Bad PC board. Throw it away. Robot vacs are nothing more than novelties ( expensive toys ) They may do what you want them to do at first but they never last very long and other than brush replacements they are not repairable. If it is within the warranty period you can get a replacement with that.

My Roomba brushes are not rotating!


Is the yellow plastic bearing in and turning freely - or is there hair caught around it stopping it from moving? And is the other end of the brush (with the square peg) mounted properly?

Clicking sound and wont **** up dirt, says clean brushes and i did, and still doesnt work


The brush deck should raise depending on the floor surface the Roomba is cleaning. Remove the dust bin, send the Roomba on a cleaning mission and observe through the dust bin opening whether the brushes are turning.

My roomba keeps telling me "error and to clean the brushes. I have cleaned the brushes and when I turn the roomba back on it keeps clicking underneath the roomba. I'm not sure what else to do.

Good Morning, My Roomba makes a banging sound and the brushes don't turn. It stops after about two minutes. Thank you & regards, Judith Halls


Hi Judith,

after removing and cleaning your Roomba's brushes & bearings (see the manual for instructions), try running the unit without the dust bin. You can watch the main brush while the Roomba runs. If it's not turning, it's time to call support.

Please clean Roomba s brushes warning will not stop after brushes have been cleaned Unit shuts off after one minute of cleaning


Clean the yellow brush bearings. Then run the Roomba without the dustbin, so that you can watch the brush while the unit is cleaning. Is it turning? If not, call customer support. 877-855-8593. Have your Roomba with you; they will want information from it. Good luck.

Roomba Discovery


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.
