Your problem is not the motor but the getting the right pulley on there...

You will find a motor easily, cheap too. But it will look something like this when you buy it:

But your Botvac motor has a brass pulley on it to drive the rubber belt, like this:

Not my pics!

I have not found a reliable way to remove or fit the pulley without damaging the motor.

I would be keen to hear if others have managed it?

This type of gear puller may work. I have a very simple version of it and it worked fine the few times I used it.

I even did not have it mind. Any other cheep options how to remove and fit the pulley? For 1 time to buy such device it is not good idea. Anyone has bought a gear puller from aliexpress? something like that https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Univers ... st=ae803_3

That should work as long as there is enough space between the gear and motor.

I removed a pulley without any problem with screw driver.

Next question - I have side brush motor which is not working. Writen specification on it rf-500tb-11660 YD104421. I can easely find motor replacement rf-500tb-11660 BUT THE RPM is different. What is right RPM of NEATO botvac side brush motor?
