Question about Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
The last 2-3 cleaning rounds, the dirt cup was empty at the end of a cleaning session, and this is NOT normal. The filter DID have the usual dust on it. So tonight, I unscrewed several layers, cleaned out debris, and replaced the parts and the brushes. But this time, after turning it on, Roomba made a clicking sound every few seconds. I removed the dirt bin to look at the brush, and it would make 1/8 turn, click, and stop -- then turn again and click and stop turning -- and repeat, repeat.
What can I do?

I read somewhere that you need to clear the software in case there is a glitch. To do this, take the battery out and then, simultaneously hold down the "spot" and "clean" buttons for 30 seconds. Replace battery. This has worked for my Discovery model.

Try to turn the brushes by hand, while the machine is off and on it's back. If the brushes will not turn, the brush motor is burned out. If you are mechanically inclined you should not have too much trouble replacing it.
Remove the bumper, then the case. You will see a motor with a long square shaft. That will be the motor to replace.
Personally, I recommend the RobotShop for buying a replacement motor.

Same thing happened to me. After "cleaning" the brushes and emptying the filter several times, I realized that the brushes were not properly secured. One of the yellow fasteners needed to be pushed closer to the middle nearer to the brushes. It was not secured properly. When I did this it fixed my problem.

The robot dirt tray has a vacuum motor to assist the dirt flow from the floor brushes. Yours is not working. recheck the connections on the dirt tray.
