Are they wrapped up with hair, thread, dental floss? If so clean them. Were the brush and beater bar replaced incorrectly in the past? The square end has to fit on the square side, etc.

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!

SOURCE: 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

Wheel modules? It's more likely to be the cleaning head module. Clean your brushes exactly as the manual describes-- particularly the yellow bearings. Run the Roomba on a hard floor without the dustbin. Does the brush turn? If not, call support again and they'll help you out.

gears may be stripped in the brush drive line. right off the motor is a gearbox, held on with two screws. getting to it is fairly complicated, fix is easy. parts can be found at Protech Robotics Parts and Service

Brush not turning


Check to make sure belt has not snapped by dismantling the bottom of the head , or looking round the beater bar on either left of right hand far side, or failing that the make sure the beater bar brush is clear of hair or other particles. Hope this helps.

Beater bar


It could be your brush bar is not working properly if there is debris restricting the endcaps, the brush bar motor could be defective, it could be a switch or wiring problem.

My XV 11 Vacuum keeps on bringing up the message " My vacuum is stuck"


This message generally means that the beater/brush bar is not turning. Try rotating the beater/brush bar manually to see if it can turn freely. If not, you will need to remove the beater/brush bar and ensure that it is clean; that the orange end caps on the brush are free of hair and dirt, and that the bar housing area is free of obstructions.

Note, when I said "beater/brush", it could be either/or, depending on whether you're using the "standard" beater bar, or the upgraded pet brush.

Beater bar making a loud noise


Our DC33 was making the same ratcheting sound immediately upon placing the cleaner/brush head on the carpet. We carefully pulled the beater/brush bar out of the vacuum. Once removed, we pulled the black plastic end nearest the belt off of the center rod. We discovered hair wrapped around each end of the center rod. After the hair was removed and the clean/brush bar was re-installed, the vacuum ran flawlessly. Hope it works as well for you as it did for us.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

Check that the belt is not too slack and that the brush bearings are not too tight, or that some lint or thread is caught around the brush shaft.

IRobot rumba 4000 seems to run ok and then starts making a kinda hi pitched growling noise and slows way down. it is very clean(blown clean with air compressor)sensors are clear ,newly installed well...


It sounds like your Roomba's brush gears are not working. Run the robot without the dust bin to see if the brushes are turning. If they are not, the robot will need to be replaced. Contact iRobot CS for support at (877) 855-8593.

Beater bar brush stopped working...


Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.
