\015\012Each roller has a little yellow cap on one end. Pull this cap off (it should come off easily) and remove the crud that is wrapped around the "axle" of the rollers. The crud keeps the cap from going far enough down on the axle, essentially making the roller longer. This causes the roller to get into a bind and results in the roll-thump-roll-thump-roll problem. Once the crud is removed, replace the cap, replace the roller (notice how it drops in easier now?), and enjoy your Roomba again.
I thought my brushes were clean, but here is what I discovered, and it fixed my Roomba.

The yellow bearing on the opposite end the brush rollers from the gearbox will pull off the shaft. These bearings spun freely and looked clean, but when I pulled them off there was hair and junk between the end of the brush and the back of the bearing. When installed in the Roomba this gook warms up and gets sticky causing friction and stopping the brush from spinning.

Use a toothpick to pull this stuff out and the brushes spin free again. I was very frustrated, and this fixed it, works like new again.

Took Roomba apart to clean and now the pick up brushes start and stop during cleaning. The vaccum is clean but will not constantly spin. Runs great but pick up brushes start and stop. Is there a number for Roomba? Warranty? This one is less than one year old.

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?

Took my Hoover Steam Vac apart to clean it and now it won't **** up the water but was working fine before I got the bright idea to clean it. Took four screws out but did not touch the motor. It puts out water and the brushes rotate but no suction? Thank you for your help, Cathy


The suction is created by the motor and is pulled to the motor through the flexible hose. The hose could have pulled off at one end or it could have torn in a spot where there is more pull on the hose like when you lay the handle down to empty dirty ... Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum

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
