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 www.iRobot.com . 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!

My roomba keeps telling me "error and to clean the brushes. I have cleaned the brushes and when I turn the roomba back on it keeps clicking underneath the roomba. I'm not sure what else to do.


I had the identical problem. I cleaned the brush but the problem persisted. I then put in a new brush that was provided in the box and the problem vanished. I have since used the cleaning tool on the old brush and will try and reinstall it to see if my cleaning worked. In any case a new brush will do the job.

Brushes on my roomba don't seem to be spinning.


Try running your roomba with the dust bin removed to see if the brushes turn. Take the brushes out and make sure they're clean. You may need to replace the brushes if they're worn. Failing that, you can find instructions on how to take your roomba apart. Take out the brush assembly and open the screws on the side of it to expose the gears that drive the brushes. There will probably be a lot of gunk in there jamming them up. You might need to check the motor too.

"Please clean Roombas brushes"


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.

Please clean Roomba s brushes warning will not stop after brushes have been cleaned Unit shuts off after one minute of cleaning


Clean the yellow brush bearings. Then run the Roomba without the dustbin, so that you can watch the brush while the unit is cleaning. Is it turning? If not, call customer support. 877-855-8593. Have your Roomba with you; they will want information from it. Good luck.

Even with a new battery


I was having the same problem. Roomba would run for 30 seconds and then stop. I tried everything -- then I took the small rubber brush out and removed the small nut at the end. It was packed with dust to the point that it could not turn easily. I cleaned it out and now it is working like a champ. I think the automatic shut down was just a sign that there was too much strain to turn the brushes.
