Brush cleaning, wheel thump
\015 2 items: comtinual shut down for brush cleaning after repeated cleaning and a wheel thump that just started after cleaning brushes\015
Rchu is exactly right. No need for a complicated disassembly. If you have never pulled off those end bearings/caps, the hair may be very impacted, but removing it should solve the problem. The instructions will tell you by color (yellow for mine) which pieces come off for cleaning. Be sure to remove all such pieces. If the fit seems tight, it's probably because a lot of stuff got stuck in there. Be gentle but firm, and things the should come off will come off. Once you've cleaned all the pieces, the thumping should be gone.

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. ... iRobot Roomba 4000 Bagless Robotic Vacuum
Hi, There is a high pitched whirring sound coming from lower part of the vacuum. When I tilt it toward me (while standing in the normal vacuuming stance) the sound sometimes lessens for a minute or so. I have tried the following things: -cleaned the two sponge filters -emptied the dirt receptacle -removed the roller and cleaned it -cleaned the brushes -the belt is not ragged and does not seem floppy -checked all of the airways for clogs (including removing the wheel base) Can you help?

My Roomba 4210 plays the dead battery song 10 seconds after I press Clean, Spot or Max. But I notice that I can put my roomba in diagnostic mode (with brushes, wheels etc) for long periods of time with plenty of strong power. Why won't it clean for more than five seconds without that dreadful tune, flashing power light and an amber status light?

Yes - an independant vacuum repair shop is unlikely to repair (disassemble) - as this vac is no longer supported (in case something is broken during servicing).\015\012You will (probably) find the repair to be more than the cost of a new vac. ... Vacuums
Sebo X4 is squealing when pulled back. Takes a while after it's been running for this to happen. We changed the roller brush (needed it anyway) but didn't take care of the noise. Could the wheels be making this sound? At least that's what my staff thinks is going on... I own a commercial cleaning company and all we use are sebos... they're an amazing machine!
Yep - we think Sebos are pretty good too. I work at a Sebo sales and repair dealership! The wheels are a good bet - I can't think of anything else that might cause the noise. If in doubt, I suppose you could simply wheel one around for a while when s ... Sebo X4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Bin isn't filling, won't pickup and brushes won't spin for the second time. Last time iRobot had to replace both wheel modules. Any suggestions? I clean it every time I use it!
Wheel modules? It's more likely to be the cleaning head module. Clean your brushes exactly as the manual describes-- particularly the yellow bearings.

Roomba Discovery My Roomba turns on and moves but the brushes won't turn. Someone told me that I had forgotten to put in the yellow and black end bearings, but I did. Help, I miss my Roomba I have a Roomba 530, I have had it for 2 weeks and really loved it. I have followed all the cleaning instructions etc.. Then the Roomba wanted it's brushes cleaning "please clean Roombas brushes" So thinking that something was stuck I removed and cleaned the brushes, (yellow tabs on and in place by the way)

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,
It sounds like if the rod is clean then there is debree inside the roller where the rod fits in too. ... Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum With Power Nozzle
