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?

I have the IROBOT discovery that just got a new battery. IT ran great! As the battery was dying, I put it into the home base. The "brick" is green, the home base has two green lights and the on/off pulsates red. It never charges though. Eventually the red light stops pulsating. Customer service said to reset it, clean the metal, and nothing works! They told me to just buy another one. The problem is that I know it was working! Help!

When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again. Sometimes is gets so stuck from moving forward at all, like it is stuck in one spot just trying to go while seemingly surrounded by barriers. Somet
