Help -- Roomba 580 won't pick up dirt!

Postby ruberman » March 4th, 2009, 9:20 pm

Hi,

This unit has worked fine since I got it a 4-5 months ago. This week I have noticed that the collector is always empty and it is no longer vacuuming -- it is still travelling around the house, etc. but the vacuum doesn't work.

Help please.

Thanks.

If under warranty contact IRobot for a replacement Cleaning Head Module. Your CHM may possibly be full of debris thus preventing the gears from turning the brushes.
