Having problems with your Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum ?

Roomba wheel -- stuck

\015 My Rooma Discovery 4210 has one slow-moving wheel--one of the two spins just find, the other slowly. I can't find an obstruction, but I can't see what might be lurking between the wheel and the black plastic that covers it, either. I called and Roomba told me the wheels of the Discovery models can't be fixed and suggested I buy a new Rooma 500-series, which has fixable wheels. They didn't recommend trying to repair the wheel. Well. Thanks, Roomba. Given that this machine is otherwise useless, any suggestions on how to get that wheel unstuck?\015

I had a similar problem, I just took my Roomba Red apart and put it back together about four times before I fixed it.  In my case it turned out to be a dirty sensor, fixed as described at\015\012

\015\012Before you open it up I recommend following the diagnostic tests to see if its a physical problem (bad motor belt, hair stuck around the wheel) or a sensor problem (dirt makes Roomba think it is stuck when it isn't).  If you follow the diagnostics one of them will move the Roomba wheels while ignoring the sensors; if the wheels move fine then you probably have a sensor problem.\015\012
