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?

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci
Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

My Hoover Steam Vac for my rugs works fine, but I don't have any suction when I try to use the hose and attachment for my upholstery. I went over the instructions dozens of times but still no suction.

My dc17 squeals when the brushes are rotating. I have replaced the brushes twice and the belt three times. It has been back to the factory twice and they say they have done the same thing. The suction is still there but it is getting to the point I might have to wear ear plugs to vacuum any suggestions.

My Kirby G 2001 upright vacuum wont turn on. I tried another outlet and still nothing. I don't see a breaker switch anywhere. If you know of any common problems I would love to hear them. I am very mechanically inclined, I just was wondering if there are any common issues with the motors or power switches etc. so I don't waste a lot of time troubleshooting. Thanks

Battery charge I just purchased a new battery pack insert for my Roomba, Replacement was a breeze and it now works great. My question is; The last battery I bought ( not from you) was a full cased roomba battery pack that didn't last a year. Roomba says leave the r Roomba charging all the time so it's ready when you need it, and that's nice but I feel that leaving it charging like that it will kill the battery faster as it is always warm to the touch. These battery's should last at least 5
Dave you are correct. You should never over-charge anything like a Roomba, Cel Phone, etc. That will kill a bettery very quickly. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

I bought Roomba 560 and love it. It didn?t come with a lighthouse so I bought one on Ebay. When I put the batteries in it the green light on top flashes 5 or 6 time very quick and then stops, it doesn?t flash after that. When placed in front of the Roomba in either mode, virtual wall or lighthouse it doesn?t direct the Roomba. The question is, is there a process to marry the two units together or do you think the lighthouse is defective? Thank you Gary
