Roomba Discovery My Roomba turns on and moves but the brushes won't turn. Someone told me that I had forgotten to put in the yellow and black end bearings, but I did. Help, I miss my Roomba I have a Roomba 530, I have had it for 2 weeks and really loved it. I have followed all the cleaning instructions etc.. Then the Roomba wanted it's brushes cleaning "please clean Roombas brushes" So thinking that something was stuck I removed and cleaned the brushes, (yellow tabs on and in place by the way)
I read somewhere that you need to clear the software in case there is a glitch. To do this, take the battery out and then, simultaneously hold down the "spot" and "clean" buttons for 30 seconds. Replace battery. This has worked for my Discovery model ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.

The flexible brush on my unit does not spin. It did 'by accident' pick up a cat poo that didnt make the litter tray while I was out, (and it happily spread it all over the house and skirting boards). I cleaned the unit, removed the base and wiped everything clean. I've unscrewed the flexible brush and cleaned underneath it but it still wont spin. Any suggestions?

Roomba discovery My roomba comes off the charger and will go about a minute and a half. Then it will stop and beep once. i checked roombas sight and they said that the brushed need to be cleaned. I cleaned the brushes 6 times. It still does the same thing. I bought it from you in November of 2007. Should I bring it back to your service department?

My bissell model 18Z6 has developed a loud noise and vibration when the brush is running. I have removed the brush assy and cleaned all the hair, etc but still the noise. I ran the brush motor with the belt disconnected and all seemed ok, but of course there was no load on the motor. I suspect a problem with the brush assy bearings or axle or both but I hate to just throw parts at the problem. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My floor brush stopped spinning, I cleaned everything out as per your directions in other posts and following the instructions in the manual. Now the floor brush wobbles and has a hard time spinning when upright. Looking at the end of the brush, opposite the drive belt, the bearing-type end that the brush spins on appears to be off-centered. Is there an easy way to fix this???

I assume this unit has no mechanism to turn the brush but instead using the air flow to activate the brush, in this instance it could be that there is dirt which is caught up in the brush which is stopping the rotation.A nice good clean and make sure ... Hoover Vacuums
