New Roomba 560 beep twice, ask to clean brushes, but no dirt

\015 I have an Irobot Roomba 560 and is one week old. It work perfectly and suddenly it works for a minute or so and then stop, beep twice and give the "remove brushes and clean" command. I have cleaned the entire machine. I followed the instructions given by one of your experts, but with no luck. Please help because it's brand new!!!!\015

Answers :

Your roomba is thinking that you need to clean the brushes. if too much load it put on your brush motor--the unit will think that something is wrapped around the brush and slowing down the motor. if you have cleaned your brush and are sure that is not the problem; you need to look for anything else that could be slowing down the brush/motor. If this is inconclusive you need to put your roomba into diagnostic mode by following the procedures in the link below\015\012\015\012http://swiftracer.com/index.php?myPage=RoombaDiagnosticMode.php

I have a roomba 551. Have cleaned and removed every bit of dirt and hair off it bu the brush cage won't close when the larger bush is put in.
