Question about Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
I have no suction on my red roomba anymore -- any ideas??
Make sure you have a filter installed, then change or clean it. Without a filter, the fan will get clogged.
If that doesn't help, clean the fan and the exhaust port, and verify that the fan is working.
If the fan is working and the filter is clean, then your appearent lack of suction is probably due to the fact that your brushes are not turning, and therefore not collecting debris. That's a whole different problem, one I also have, but haven't solved yet (though there are suggestions on this site).

SOURCE: no suction
Roombas are a vary "low suction" device. The major amount of debris is picked up by the brushes. I assume you a re using the brush cleaning tool, removing the brushes and cleaning them. The other part is the dust bin which contains a small turbine motor. The connections can become dirty and the motor will not run. Make sure you keep the dust bin clean with a damp cloth especially at the contact points on the bin and roomba unit.
