        Comments about iRobot Enhanced Cleaning Head For Roomba®:

        The description implies that it is enhanced or at least revised but in fact it is the same as the part that comes with the 700 series. It is not different or better for pet hair in any way.

            This module works great compared to the old 500 series module. I used to take the 500 series module apart a few times per year to clean and regrease the gears, but not any more!

            I have found that the best way to clean the brush is to use a wire dog brush (the kind with 100's of very thin wires). It works better than anything else I have tried.

              Comments about iRobot Enhanced Cleaning Head For Roomba®:

              I bought this for my 550 series as it was making a thumping noise - one of the gearwheel sockets was broken. This part replaced the entire brush assembly and it works like a charm. The unit is now much quieter and cleans better. I am so pleased with it. I just would like to know how to buy additional brushes as this version seems to get less hair tangled in the gears.

                  I purchased this to replace my failing 550 brush unit. Pet hair guards attracted me and reviews I read said it would work fine in the 550.
                  All my 550 does now is go in circles - same one over and over.

                      Read a reviews that this fits all 500-700 series, and it does.... A great replacement, based on design. Just replaced the old unit, as, after a while, cleaning all the hair and debris out of the brush cage gear housing becomes tedious and problematic. So far, this is working great. Thanks Roomba for a design change, I have awaited for a long, long time.

                            Well I've had this head unit since August 2012 in my 500 series roomba. To date we have had none of the previous issues that plagued the green units. The floor is cleaner and I'm happy to say I think the unit will easily outlast every green unit purchased COMBINED! As I was reading the reviews I got a chuckle to see that Irobot NOW recommends this unit for the 500 & 600 series robots. I guess they finally unloaded all those green units! Get this motor and the aero bin your roomba will be be as good as the 700 at cleaning.

                                  I read the negative reviews about the green cleaning head for the 500 models, and that this one would work. The reviews are correct, this fits in my 500 series Roomba perfectly, and works quite well. The old cleaning head kept getting its gears jammed by dog hair, and ultimately melted. I can't say much yet for the wear on this, but it is much more quiet than the old cleaning head, so that's a good start.

                                    The cleaner head on my 560 died due to over use (5 cats). I was going to get a replacement for it until I saw the reviews. People were unhappy with the one for the 500 series and recommended the replacement head for the 700 series. Even though the website says the replacement is for the 700 series only that is not true, it fit my 560 perfectly! Installed it yesterday and the little robot is as good as new, if not better!
