SOURCE: Roomba 500
Roomba 500 Series have a serious problem with hair and other fibers working their way into the drive gears. The resulting resistance in the drivetrain is interpreted by the machine as overloaded brushes. People who experience this problem should complain to iRobot technical support. If the machine was purchase less than a year ago, they should ship a replacement assembly to you at no charge.

The bearing on the inside of the turbine is rusted. You will have to take the hood of the unit and unscrew the black piece that has to rub hoses going to it. Then take apart the black turbine. Inside you will find 2 white gears and a small 1/2inch bearing. Use wd40 to uncease the bearing. After this put the take pliers and make sure the metal post will turn. Spray wd40 on everything you see including Hoover for making such ****. After this put put everything back together. Now the best thing to do is get some automotive bearing grease and put a large amount on bearing and and other metal parts. Put everthing back together. Clean any hair off the brushes and you are ready. Now the bad news if your gears are worn you will have to replace the turbine. Go to an internet website and the part number will be 91001019. I know all this because I spent 6 years working for Hoover and they found it cheaper to send our jobs overseas.

We were having the same problem with the brushes not spinning.
How I fixed it:
I Removed the brush assembly by gently pulling on both sides of the assembly. I took a wide slotted screwdriver and inserted it into the slot (hole) that turns the brushes. At first it did not want to move. I GENTLY applied pressure by turning the screwdriver to get the gear to move and it began to move freely. I spun the gear a number of times using the screwdriver to make sure it was moving freely.
I reinstalled the brush assembly by aligning the gear that slides into the slot and gently pushing the clips back into place using equal pressure on both sides.
I plugged in the machine and the brushes now spin!
Good luck to everyone out there!
