    Comments about iRobot Enhanced Cleaning Head For Roomba®:

    I bought this through the irobot website directly. I registered my old irobot 540 that I've had for over 5 years and got a 15% discount to purchase this part as well as the aerovac bin. Since I had a new battery that I bought recently. It's upgraded my iRobot 540! My old cleaning head was on the skitz cos all the hair and fur got clogged up in the gear... a design flaw from iRobot which they fixed with this one. It vacuumed my pet ridden floors for over an hr and there were no tangled hairs on the brushes. Amazing! The aerovac bin picked up a lot of the hairs too. Buying these parts was a good buy and much better than the original parts. Felt like constantly babysitting the roomba with the original parts cleaning out the hairs every time it vacuumed. I vacuum every day because I am a pet owner but now with the new parts it's less of an issue. Also in general, maybe I haven't been aware. I find it to be a lot quieter too. Now I can use it again as before I couldn't as my neigbours below us would complain about the noise.

    Frequent use, iRobot is super, but this head (at it's price) makes it useless.

    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.

    The best way to clean the brush

        Comments about iRobot Enhanced Cleaning Head For Roomba®:

        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.

              Comments about iRobot Enhanced Cleaning Head For Roomba®:

              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.

                  Comments about iRobot Enhanced Cleaning Head For Roomba®:

                  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.

                  Comments about iRobot Enhanced Cleaning Head For Roomba®:

                  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.
