Check your suction. If there is no or little suction at the hose end then check for a plugged hose and all the suction areas. Make sure your filters are clean as well. Should be one and possibly two.

Error 5 what dose it mean

(Condensed from the iRobot site...) "Uh Oh Error 5" or "Uh Oh" and 5 beeps means Roomba's Side Wheel is stuck. Pick up Roomba and with Roomba right side up, push the side wheel up and down a few times to clear debris. Manually rotate the side wheels to clear debris. Blow air through the side wheel pockets (or vacuum them with an upholstery tool on a traditional vacuum) to clear debris. If this doesn't clear the obstruction, then contact iRobot customer support.

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 . 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!

Charging error 5 - battery not workiafter 4 calls and 4 different

Generic works fine, and that charger does too. If your charge light and dock light are on then you'll be okay.
Save cash, go generic!

IRobot stopped picking up larger bits from the carpet. It picks up the dust, but anything larger, it leaves behind. Have changed the filter/brushes. Is there anything else I need to do

Its sounds like the brushes aren't turning. Pull the vacuum and bin off the back and start it and look to see if the brushes are turning.
