Problems with roomba 530
\015 My roomba says to clean brushes. I have done this and the roomba will work for about 2 minutes cut off and repeat the same message\015
Before taking apart your Roomba read this!!! First to see if it is a defect or really the brushes, take the brusehs out and run roomba with out them. If you still hear the clicking/ thumping then try taking it apart or call roomba. But if the clicking/ thumping goes away when the brushes are out you're in luck! Take the brushes. The brushes have little yellow nubs... those come out. pull them out, and you will see a lot of hair waiting for you. clean all of the hair out ( tweezers are wonderful for this). Once they are cleaned out put the yellow nubs back on. Put your brushes back in and you're Roomba will be back to business in no time!!!
Check under the yellow nubs first! Mine were totally surrounded with crud and hair. This solution worked for me! :)

Roomba Stops I've had a Roomba for about 2 months. Lately, it runs for about 45 secs, then stops, makes a two-tone (descending) sound, and flashes the CLEAN button while the STATUS button is red. I've emptied the dustbin on it. Can you help? I am seeing the same problem on my roomba today. I cleaned all that I could., the brushes, the pins on the sides and all that and it still gives the same problem..Any other fix?

I noticed the Roomba's brushes were not sweeping, or turning so they could sweep. There was a new sound coming from the machine, the sound of grinding nylon! Upon inspection, I determined the problem to be a heat melted gear support hole. The hole was no longer round but oblong. You could see a ridge of plastic around this hole. So melting I believe was the culprit. The gear that uses that hole was then able to tilt to one side, thereby allowing the gear to disengage from the drive train. I
