Question about iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum
Brush moter replacemet
Posted by Anonymous on
If you are referring to the two main brushes underneath the Roomba (not the side-sweeper) then there are a couple possibilites:
1. The gears need to be cleaned/regreased inside the brush unit. There are several videos/guides online that will show you haw to dissassemble the gears, clean out the gunk, and reassemble. Basically there are four screws that hold the unit in; once it is removed you will see several screws on the side of the unit that contain the gears for the brushes. Dirt/dust/hair makes it's way into the gear-case and gums up the works, which seizes the motor.
2. Another possibility is that the electric motor that drives the brushes needs tp be cleaned or replaced. My Roomba had lint/hair caught up in the electric motor...in fact the dirt was separating the brushes from contacting the rotor inside the motor, which means they weren't cunducting electricity. Once I cleaned out the motor itself, the brushed worked right away! There are a couple view holes on the sides of the motor...get a flashlight and look inside...there is probably lots of junk keeping the motor from working properly.
