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!

Bin barely fills. Lots of dog hair between brushes and bin, and is now dropping hair balls as it goes around the house


This is why Roomba recommends a thorough clean of your carpet with a standard vac prior to using your mini vac. Once all heavy debris has been removed, the roomba will maintain that state of clean. If you have that much dog hair, you cant expect such a small roller, brush and dustbin to keep up. sounds like you need the dirt dog instead. It is capable of handling heavier demand areas. Or the

IRobot stopped picking up larger bits from the carpet. It picks up the dust, but anything larger, it leaves behind. Have changed the filter/brushes. Is there anything else I need to do


Its sounds like the brushes aren't turning. Pull the vacuum and bin off the back and start it and look to see if the brushes are turning.

Irobot roomba brush only spins on hardwood/tile. brush stops when it hits carpet. motor prob's? fix?


Remove and clean the yellow bearing on each brush, then reinstall them. Run the Roomba and ensure that the brushes do turn on hardwood, then test it again on carpet. If the brushes still stop turning on the rug, call customer support at 1-877-855-8593. They'll be able to determine your warranty status and discuss your options.

Ah ha!!! After cleaning the brushes umpteen times I worked out that you have to remove the very small yellow pieces (not the other ones which sit on the end) but the ones right on the end and look for hair that is caught on the spindle. No more clicking noise either!

IRobot not picking up dirt


this link fixed my prob :
http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtopic.php?t=10628
and just in case the link doesn't work, basically, you have to take out the whole red brush-head assembly unit by unscrewing the 4 screw screws that hold in down in either corner; then find the side of the unit that has the gearing inputs, and unscrew all the screws until you get inside and clean out all the hair...
That should do it :)
