It clicks as it is going and stops after about 30 seconds. Two beeps. I have tried cleaning brushes and have pretty much taken the whole thing apart, cleaned the motor, the brushes everything. Still doing to same thing, when this has worked before.

It clunks because the gears are damaged. You will need to replace the CHM. If you have the red cleaning head module, chm, replace it with the green chm.

What to do when your vacuum brush stops spinning


Household vacuums come in all shapes and varieties, but many of them are similar on the inside. There is often a brush running across the length of the vacuum's nozzle, and it spins as the vacuum runs to help **** up debris. But sometimes the brush will stop running, and you'll notice a severe decline in your vacuum's performance.

Usually when the brush stops spinning, it's because something inside the vacuum is binding it up. Dirt can get lodged inside, and hair can get wrapped around a shaft. If there is too much pressure, the drive belt can even snap.

You can usually see and clean the brush just by turning the vacuum upside down, but to get to the other internal parts you have to take the vacuum apart. On canister vacuums, this is usually pretty easy because it's just the nozzle that needs to come apart. Full-size vacuums can be taken apart as well, but the process can sometimes be more involved.

If you can get the nozzle or the vacuum's base apart and get to the parts inside, you should see the brush (which is part of a long shaft), a drive belt, and some sort of mechanism that drives the brush, which is commonly a paddle or a motor.

Hair can get caught up in any of these components and cause them to not be able to spin, as can dirt and other debris. If you clean all of the components out and put the vacuum back together, it should work just fine. The brush, over time, may become frayed or damaged, and the drive belt sometimes will snap, but otherwise a good cleaning will usually make your vacuum run as good as new.

Have a power brush and cannot get the brush out to clean. I've taken off the main cover, but the brush is held in by a bracket. I can't take off the main cover as I don't have the right kind of...


I have a Miele STB-205-3 Turbobrush. After opening the brush cover using a quarter, I use a T-7 torx screw driver (shaped like star of David) to remove the main cover that is held by 4 screws.

There are 2 more screws holding the fan housing. After unscrewing them, you can take the whole thing apart and clean it. Make sure you clean all rotating parts as they collect a lot of hair, dust, etc,

I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin...


Ok, this is a "Brush Height Adjustment" issue. It will probably work great on a hard surface but on carpet the brushes bog. If you've taken the unit apart already...Sorry....do it again. When you do, you'll see a String which allows the brushes to "Float" on different surface heights. Loosen the screw a little and pull a bit more string through. Re Tighten the screw and put it together enough for a test run. Now reset the roomba.To reset the Roomba, power the Roomba on, and press the Spot, and Dock buttons together for at least 8 seconds. Until it plays a tune. The clock, and any schedule is erased at this time. Try running the Roomba with the dust bin removed to see the brushes spin easier.

Second method, is taking off the bottom cover, and removing the battery. While it's removed, and not plugged into the charger, press the clean button for at least 20 seconds. This will erase the memory. Replace battery, and cover. Run the Roomba to see if the brushes start to spin. You can also remove the brush housing by removing the 4 screws and reseating it, to see if it was a bad connection, since you have the bottom cover off.

My Roomba says to clean the brushes when the brushes are already clean. Is there something to take apart to check? I have already taken the brushes out. I don't know the model number, I think it's the 500...


turn the unit upside down and remove the bottom pan should be 4 or 5 screws depending on the model.

next remove the 4 screws that hold the brush cartridge and pull the whole brush assembly out.

using a can of compressed air clean that whole assembly out there is a motor there so don't spray any cleaner on it. If there is surface grime you can use a clorox wipe or a damp cloth to get it all off.

this process should take about 10 minutes to do it properly use the straw that came with the compressed air to get in between the plastic shell and get all the dust trapped inside there.

make sure there is no dust trapped in the gears that drive the brushes.

put it all together and it should work.

Suction switch


Leave the thing off for about 30 mins, let it cool. Take that time to clean out all of pieces. Its a pretty simple machine, but has many suction points. Mine killed around Christmas time. Flippin pine needles got caught everywhere,clogged the whole works and it just died. Though she was toast, but its back in action now. I really like this vacuum for how much I paid for it.

Roomba turning off after 30 sec.


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.
