Parting Out Dead Roombas for sale

Postby zonian » July 9th, 2012, 10:26 pm

I have two DEAD roombas:

1) Sage...intact but does not charge the battery for some reason.
2) White Discovery...in pieces. Brushes do not work and one of the gears in the brush gearbox is stripped.

Also have 3 walls, 2 home base chargers, and some extra dust filters (new).

I'd like to sell the entire lot for $100 to someone who wants/needs some spare parts...

Any Takers?

There is no reason to bump a thread here. As you can see, there are very few threads in this forum.

Trust me, your thread isn't being buried. Hang in there.

Hmmm, what model is sage? Is sage all smashed up and scratched? Also can you send me some photos?
Thanks, Patrick

Not sure about the sage model...I thought "sage" was the model??? The sage is in good shape, and works. But for some reason the battery charging function is broken and it will not charge. If you put a charged battery into it, it works fine. The discovery is in pieces.

I will take some pics and post or send them to you.

Sorry, it's a bit too expensive for me to fix. I too have a parted Roomba Discovery, so there is no need for two. Thank you for your time and effort, Patrick

The Sage not charging is a common problem, you may even be able to swap the disco motherboard into the sage to get it working. Search for U2/U4 failure.

The disco motherboard has a burned out MOFSET which controls power to the brush deck....but I was using the disco to charge the battery for use in the sage.

That can be fixed also. Look for U11 repair.

Yes, I ordered MOFSET from mouser and attempted a micro-solder repair...didn't work...smoked...need better eyes I guess.

I need a Home Base, Will that Homebase work for a 565 model?

I do not know...565 looks like a "newer" model and I don't know anything about it.

Sorry, I didn't see this earlier, but you can sell broken Roombas on Ebay pretty easily, though not for a lot of money. Just be honest and point out what doesn't work and you will very likely sell it (if you still have them)
