I have a roomba 530 pet series. It appears that the brushes aren't turning. They are free of dirt and debris and move easily when manually turned.

I have a roomba 435. I've had it for about 3 months, it had been working great until it started to sound a little different (louder). Now I noticed that it doesn't pick things up, it just pushes them around, I then discovered that the brushes aren't turning. I cleaned them out, no parts are missing. Brushes still won't turn.
