Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum ?

I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin out, and the brushes spin.... and it has much more power.... and is very clear it is working! But it's useless without the dust bin! LOL It's only 9 months old.... called customer service, but it was the one time it worked just fine! Of course, I thought I'd stop here first before calling again! Than


Answers :

Ok, this is a "Brush Height Adjustment" issue. It will probably work great on a hard surface but on carpet the brushes bog. If you've taken the unit apart already...Sorry....do it again. When you do, you'll see a String which allows the brushes to "Float" on different surface heights. Loosen the screw a little and pull a bit more string through. Re Tighten the screw and put it together enough for a test run. Now reset the roomba.To reset the Roomba, power the Roomba on, and press the Spot, and Dock\015\012buttons together for at least 8 seconds. Until it plays a tune. The\015\012clock, and any schedule is erased at this time. Try running the Roomba\015\012with the dust bin removed to see the brushes spin easier.\015\012

Second method, is taking off the bottom cover, and removing the\015\012battery. While it's removed, and not plugged into the charger, press\015\012the clean button for at least 20 seconds. This will erase the memory.\015\012Replace battery, and cover. Run the Roomba to see if the brushes start\015\012to spin. You can also remove the brush housing by removing the 4 screws\015\012and reseating it, to see if it was a bad connection, since you have the\015\012bottom cover off.

My vac has lost suction. When I vacuum it picks up very little, but when I remove the wand hose it has good suction. We have cleaned both filters, checked for blockage in all hoses & cleaned the beater bar brush. All to no avail. Is it the motor? Or is there a blockage deep in the vac somewhere? We're debating repair versus buying a new one. Hope you can help. Thanks.

It comes on but is hard to push and will not really pick up any dust particles on the carpet. It has a funny smell also. I saw where one of you Q & A you said to check the roller brush.

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I

The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.
