Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum ?

Side brush doesn't spin all the time and doesn't go on some of my rugs


Answers :

Hey tsahcub
1. check if its screw is not released and if it is, tighten it,
2. while doing so check for any dirt/hair and clean the pivot area.
3, if that doesn't work, unscrew and take the brush out (pull straight)
check its reverse side for any cracks, if it has one you need to replace the brush with a new one
Hope that helps Avi

The spinning brush on the side kept falling off. I would put it back on as the little screw usually remained with the brush. Last time it fell off (it has every time I've used it) I lost the tiny little screw. I cannot find reference in the manual to its specifications. As I have had it for less than a week, I am considering returning it.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.

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. The cage will only click locked on one side, and the other side keeps hitting the brush and won't close. It's almost as if the bursh itself is not even, but this doesn't seem to be the case either. I've even tried removing the yellow rings, but makes no difference. Occasionally it runs fine, but most of the time the roomba just hobbles and clacks as i

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.
