[Roomba 560] Main brushes AND side brush not spinning

Postby allanl16 » January 22nd, 2019, 3:00 pm

Hi guys, hope you're having a good week. I'm trying to repair my aunts Roomba and it appears that the main brushes + the side brush aren't spinning. I cleared debris from both parties and they appear to spin fine by hand. In addition, when I put it to run it travels normally however it makes a grinding noise. I believe this grinding is preventing the brushes from spinning but I have no experience with this. Any ideas?

Edit: I've ran a diagnostic and in addition to some sensor failures, the main noise culprits are Test 16- Main Brush and
Test 19- side Brush

It's possible that the CHM (Cleaning Head Module) has broken gears due to debris build-up. Just replace the CHM with a new one, same for the side brush, just replace it with a new side brush module.
