The power cord was not working, so I ordered a new one. The roomba was then coming off the charger and blinking red. Now when I charge the roomba it does this half start and chiming noise in the video

Roomba My Scheduler started making a "grinding" noise every now and then until one day it just started grinding and then stopped (I could restart the unit, however it repeated the grinding and stopping).

My Roomba 560 is making a clunking noise when it is on and it keeps stopping saying that I need to clean the brushes. I've thoroughly cleaned the brushes and I've cleaned lint from other small crevices but I'm still getting the error. Any suggestions?

When my dyson dc14 hoover is on it has a strange burning smell, and a noise like air popping, there seems to be suction from beater and it spins. and definitley suction from extension. Filters are clear and no blockages. Is it the belt I don't think it is. or motor ? Grateful for any advice.
