Having problems with your iRobot Roomba Discovery SE Bagless Robotic Vacuum ?

Irobot moving slowly

\015 My irobot has a full battery charge but still moves slowly and is making a funny motor sound. I have totally cleaned out all the brushes...they are so clean they look new. I've taken the battery out and put it back, emptied the filters, etc. It moves slowly and eventually whirrs to a stop. The battery light is green. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Try running th roomba with the dust bin removed to see if the main brush is turning, if not it could be an issue with the gears being stripped in the brush motor assembly or inside the brush compartment holder. If the gears are fine the brush motor itself may be blown. A new one is about $30.00.

I have a new STEAM VAC Dual V All Terrain Carpet and Hardwood Cleaner. I have used it once and it worked well. Now, the second time, I have no water return. I checked the tank location, the brushes are moving slowly (but the plastic surrounding around the brushes moves as well ??) Water is coming out. There is hot air blowing out, but there is no air suction. What is wrong? Ursula Litzcke

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old
