Question about iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum
Accumulation of hair, dust and dirt in the Gearbox that prevents normal operation of the brushes. As a result, a power output is required to keep the brushes turning. As turning the brushes requires too much power, it constantly stops and tells you to clean the brushes – even if the brushes themselves are already clean.
In case your product under warranty contact iRobot before attempting any surgery, If Roomba is no longer under warranty. You can perform invasive surgery into your Roomba.
The surgery involves taking out the CHM and cleaning the gearbox.
First you’ll need to take out the four screws holding the bottom plate onto the Roomba, (you can take off the spinning front brush first, if you want – it saves some effort), and pull that plate off. Then there will be four screws holding the purple frame around the brush box in place. Unscrew those and take the brush box and purple frame out of the Roomba. on one side there’s red gearbox. Unscrew the four screws holding that side of the purple frame together, and remove that side of the frame. Then, unscrew the six screws holding the gearbox cover on and carefully pull it off. Clean the gears inside however you want, if needed re-grease the box with white grease (use sparingly), and put it back together.
I hope this will solve your problem
