Xiaomi Vacuum Robot Error 5 remove and clean main brush

No answer required, just sharing an error with your site. Hi, I have been getting this message Error 5 remove and clean main brush and have searched the web for answers, found nothing to help. I finally fixed the issue, but unsure of what fixed it. Any way I will go through some of my testing and the things I had done. After receiving the error, checking the brush, nothing found, restart clean up, a minute or so later another error 5 message. Tested on carper and hard surface, same result. Tested without brush, same result. Dismantled & Lubricated brush drive gears, same result. Replaced complete drive unit for main brush, same result. Now for what fixed it, I done this all at once so, not sure what, but one or more of the following, starting with the most likely. Pushed the reset button Small pin hole on top Completely dismantled, unplugged wiring from main circuit board, cleaned circuit board. While I had it a part I cleaned the fan out filter, this had heavy dirt built up. After I put it all together it worked fine, vacuums well, no errors. Hope this helps with solve your issue. Please give comments if you find out just a reset fixes the issue. Thanks.

My shark robotic vacuum rv700 Runs for a few seconds and then the clean and exclamation point both blink red. We’ve taken the vacuum apart and cleaned all of the debris from the brushes and the wheels....

Hello. I think you should check your warranty and call to support. If there is no such possibilities you will need to search some good repair service or even buy new device. If you will choose second variant, I recommend to choose good model from this robot vacuum ratings. Good luck!

What are these 2 blinking lights on my irobot roomba?

"The Charge Indicator Light is located immediately to the right of the power button on Roomba Red and Roomba (sage). On Roomba Discovery and Discovery SE, the Charge Indicator Light is incorporated into the power button. Please refer to the table below to determine what the Charge Indicator Light is telling you.

* Pulsing Amber - Charging
* Green - Fully Charged
* Amber - Partially Discharged
* Red - Almost Fully Discharged
* Flashing Red - Fully Discharged"
At the end of a cleaning mission, Roomba will tell you if it has successfully completed it's mission or not:

GREEN = MISSION COMPLETE

YELLOW = MISSION ABANDONED (Check robot's brushes, etc.)

YELLOW RED POWER BUTTON = BATTERY DEPLETED (Scheduler Models)

RED YELLOW POWER BUTTON = BATTERY DEPLETED (Discovery Models)
number of beeps after ?uh-oh? :

No beeps: A wheel is stuck or is not touching the ground. Pick up the robot, place it down securely on the floor and touch the clean button to restart the cycle.

1 beep: The main brushes cannot turn. Turn over Roomba and remove the brush guard by pushing the two yellow tabs. Remove the brushes, clear any obstructions, and replace them again.

2 beeps: The side brush cannot turn. Turn over Roomba. Look to see if something is wrapped around the side brush. Remove the side brush with a screw driver and check for string or hair that may be wrapped around it.

3 beeps: The vacuum cannot run Remove and empty Roomba?s bin.

4 beeps: A wheel motor cannot run Your Roomba may be stuck or something may be wrapped around a wheel. Look for something wrapped around the wheels. Push them in and out and make sure they turn easily.

5 beeps: The cliff sensors have failed or are blocked. Turn over Roomba and clear any debris that might be caught underneath the front bumper in the cliff sensors. You can also use compressed air to clean them out.

6 beeps: Wheel obstruction or robot attempting to drive over an obstacle. Turn over Roomba and remove any obstructions that prevent the wheels from seating all the way up into Roomba?s body. Also, remove any obstacles that Roomba could drive over.

7 or 8 beeps: Not applicable Roomba?s beep codes do not include 7 or 8 beeps. If you are getting an error with 7 or 8 beeps, try counting again or contact iRobot Customer Care.

9 beeps: Sensor error Please contact iRobot Customer Care.

10 beeps: Roomba is stuck Pick up Roomba and start it again somewhere else. Use a virtual wall or other barrier to keep Roomba away from the
place it got stuck.

Your Roomba may be experiencing an issue where the battery is deeply discharged and may need to charge longer than the standard 3 hours. (or 7 hours if you have a standard charger)

Even with the charging light showing green (this indicates a fully charged battery) the robot is still charging. If your Roomba exhibits behavior where it charges for a short time then runs for a short time you will need to do the following.

1. Plug the charger into Roomba (if you have a home base be sure to plug directly into Roomba instead of using the home base, this will ensure the robot's charging cycle is not interrupted.)

2. After the Roomba's charging indicator goes to solid green please keep the Roomba on the charger for an additional 72 hours. (3 days)

3. After the 72 hours (3 days) has passed, turn your Roomba on and begin a normal cleaning cycle. If this works successfully it may take several uses for the battery to get back up to the performance it once had.

If this does not correct the problem, please call customer support at 877-855-8593

Err 5

Check the side wheels for obstructions.

• With the robot on its back, push the wheels up and down several times to make sure nothing is stuck. Turn the wheels by hand to see if they both have the same amount of resistance.
• Clean the wheel assembly out with compressed air and/or a vacuum

this doesn't help?
see the video on how to replace the side wheel module

IRobot rumba 4000 seems to run ok and then starts making a kinda hi pitched growling noise and slows way down. it is very clean(blown clean with air compressor)sensors are clear ,newly installed well...

It sounds like your Roomba's brush gears are not working. Run the robot without the dust bin to see if the brushes are turning. If they are not, the robot will need to be replaced. Contact iRobot CS for support at (877) 855-8593.

Makes clicking noise and runs for a couple of minutes and then says error 2 open roomba and clean brush cage-do that and the same thing happens 2 minutes later

Pet hair often gets sucked into the gear box that drives the brushes and can clog it enough to generate this error. you need to remove the CHM (cleaning head module) and open the gear box on it to clean it out... you can also visit iRobots site and buy a new one that has been redesigned to avoid this issue.

Robot runs for about 5 min. then says clean brushes. brushes do not turn

The dust build up in these Roomba's do create a problem in all operating phases
Keep in mind if taken apart every 6 months and cleaned inside they will operate like they should

Roomba keeps saying "Clean Brushes"!!

Have you made sure the brushes aren't clogged with thread and hair, and that the brush bearings are still good?

1) remove the brush guard.
2) remove the brushes
3) remove any hair or debris using the cleaning tool

4) replace the Roombas brush bearings

a6270ee.jpg

5) replace brushed and brush guards

If this doesn't work then, try the following:
  1. Power off the Roomba.
  2. Remove the dirt bin.
  3. Place the robot upside down on a flat, padded surface.
  4. Check for any dust or dirt obstructing the Cliff Sensors (with Roomba upside down, the sensors are located in the four rectangular areas just inside the edge of the front bumper).
  5. Next, press the front bumper in to make sure it springs back.
  6. Make sure both yellow brush caps are installed correctly
  7. Make sure the main brush and the flapper brush each have a yellow bearing installed correctly.

Can not charge thr battery

bbaker58,
When you press the "clean" button after charging, does the Roomba give you any audible tones? Those tones are the key to understanding failures in the 400 series. See chart below to decode those tones
If you get no tones at all, then either (1) you're not getting power from the battery to the main circuit board or (2) the main circuit board is dead. You really have to open the unit up to figure out which it is. Circuit board replacement is a pretty involved procedure since it requires disassembly of almost the entire robot. If you are brave and want to try it, replacement PCAs are available from places like www.RoboticVacParts.com. They are my favorite shop because they sell parts tha iRobot refuses to sell to consumers and they're prices always beat what iRobot charges.
