I've had a Roomba 530 since October 2009. In those 3+ years of ownership I've replaced the battery twice, the right wheel module twice (once under warranty and again in Aug 2012), and the cleaning head module twice (once under warranty and again in Sep 2012).
So today when the brushes stopped spinning again I was wondering whether it was worth spending more money to repair this thing and maybe I should buy another brand of robot. However, after removing the CHM and blowing out wads of fuzz and turning the brushes manually for a while it seems to be operating again.
But what's your opinion? Are my experiences abnormal? Or is this the cost of having a robot vacuum? Or did I get a lemon? I don't think I run the thing excessively. In fact, it may only run 2-3 days per week.
Any advice will be appreciated.
