    My roomba had no problems for two years but now brushes turn on the floor but not on the carpet.

    @Guest feb 24 2009, me too. It spins nice and fast on hard floors and can keep on going with a fair amount of resistance with my finger being messaged by the brushes, but when it comes to carpet it cannot turn, like the deepness setting is turned too deep. But there is no setting on this robot and the wheel springs seem normal, normal ride height so I don't get how there is increased resistance now.

Try to turn the brushes by hand, while the machine is off and on it's back. If the brushes will not turn, the brush motor is burned out. If you are mechanically inclined you should not have too much trouble replacing it.

Remove the bumper, then the case. You will see a motor with a long square shaft. That will be the motor to replace.

Personally, I recommend the RobotShop for buying a replacement motor.

Turns in circles, acts like it hits a virtual wall then stops


Reboot is probably not your solution. Your Roomba will react to invisible signals or 'interference' from other electrical appliances as well as the invisible wall boxes. You can clearly see how this happens when a Roomba gets near your computer or other device that is on. Also, the Roomba will go in circles when the dirt chamber is full or it thinks it's full. Try a thorough clean of all major parts including the brushes. Sometimes this activity will occur when the brushes get snarled on thread or carpet fibers.

No suction on Roomba 560


Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module. If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!


Make sure you take off the little cap at the end (the one that spins -- just grab it and pull it straight off) and clean under it too. The rest of the brush may look perfectly clean but what happens is that hair gets stuck under spinning cap and, like a slowly growing washer, it pushes the whole brush toward the gear box. When it gets pushed over enough, the large yellow ring starts to rub against the side of the brush deck making it harder for the motor to turn the brush and you get that "remove and clean brushes" message.

Roomba keeps saying clean brushes yet are clean!


Remove the Yellow connectors on the end of the brushes and clean around the pin well. If there is too much there, the roomba thinks there is something stuck and goes into clear mode (as if there is a chord stuck).

Roomba 500


Roomba 500 Series have a serious problem with hair and other fibers working their way into the drive gears. The resulting resistance in the drivetrain is interpreted by the machine as overloaded brushes. People who experience this problem should complain to iRobot technical support. If the machine was purchase less than a year ago, they should ship a replacement assembly to you at no charge.

Brushes not spinning....


My status light came on, the vac beeped twice and stopped. I noticed my brushes weren't spinning. I took an eyeglass screwdriver and took off the center screw that holds on the brushes. I cleaned the shaft that the brushes spin on. replaced brushes and it works great! I just did this now and it is still running. my status light problem is fixed my roomba is 4 years old and I am on my 2nd battery. Seems to have fixed the problem. FYI it was wrapped with hair, dirt and it was greasy.
