Question about iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum
The bottom brushes are not working, all it's doing is vacuuming with suction. The edge brush is still turning though.
If the brushes are clean and yellow ends on the brushes spin freely, then you've done all you can without replacing or reconditioning the brush drive assembly. If its under warranty replace the assembly.
If the warranty has expired and you have the skill, you can remove the assembly and vacuum it aroundthe motor. Next remove the screws from the side plate to reveal the gear train. Its probably full of dirt you should clean out. Oil or grease would accelerate the rate at which dust is trapped. To lubricate the gear faces and pivots points I recommend dry powdered graphite. Its available at hardware stores and its most commonly used for lubricating locks, and woks well for me in the Roomba brush gear train.
