      Gear box that drives brushes needs a re-design.Pin that hols a gear keeps working out of place.Also don~t put grease in gearbox . It attracts hair an lint . This puts too much load on motor . That keeps giving a message that the brushes need cleaning ,when they are.

      Geat machine works better that my std. Vac.

      Would like to know what "Aero Vac " was supplied. I see no model number on bin !

            Don't spend the money on these look at the 700 series replacement brush head unit WITH Brushes included! Better design better life and will fit the 500 & 600 robots! Consider the aero bin too WOW what a difference!

                Comments about iRobot 500 and Professional Series Brush Pack for Red or Green Cleaning Heads:

                Long story short, I love the Roomba and have owned several. First the cheapest models and I was always replacing the batteries. Now the 500 series with scheduling which appears to have a more robust battery but the brushes are terrible.

                With the pet hair, I have to clean the brushes after pretty much every run by the Roomba which is ridiculous since the Roomba is supposed to save me time. Then within a few months I have to replace the brushes because the yellow rings warp and bind as described in another review.

                I have 2 engineering degrees (Mech and Elec Eng) and I don't think the warping and binding are caused exclusively by hair. If these brushes were my design I would not be proud of it. The brushes clearly overheat as the yellow rings show wear marks and grooves that have been cut into them. Once this happens the only way to get the Roomba to work without new brushes is to remove the material which came out of the grooves and cooled in raised lips just outside the grooves. I've found that you can (a) sand the yellow ring or (b) pick the material off with a fingernail or knife and lightly oil the ring and housing where the yellow ring rubs. I would not suggest the oiling in general as it attracts a lot of dirt. This is unfortunate as a little oil might well prevent (or minimize) the overheating and grooving that is occuring.

                Additionally, since this is a known (if not admitted to) design flaw I'd really like to see iRobot offer just the yellow ring at a bargain price. My brushes are fine I just have grooves in my yellow rings. Over the past 18 months or so that I've owned this Roomba the yellow rings are always the first failure mechanism of the brushes and the Roomba. Ridiculous - make the rings harder, or some cheap metal, or better yet eliminate them.

                There are other websites that offer a redesigned brush without the yellow ring but it involves buying about half of your Roomba again so you can replace the brushes, the brush guard, and the brush/housing interface.

                iRobot seems to be sooo very close to getting the Roomba series robots right that it is disappointing when something this obvious is the fatal flaw. Those yellow rings are clearly a flawed design choice. Someone wanted to save a few bucks instead of designing them correctly.

                  I was able to order the RED cleaning head replacement yellow caps that are on the ends of the RED brush unit by calling customer care and prompting the [@] prompt (prompt #3). This is a good way to get Roomba 500 parts and not have to purchase the GREEN replacement heads. The agent was very helpful and courteous - and in the USA!!! Hope this helps.

                    I alone operate my Roomba and clean it. 6 years old. I used it on all types of floors in New York. It does a good job under beds, dressers and tables, etc. No bending for me. While taking care of my Mom I had more time for her because my floors were always taken care of by my Roomba. She loved our Maid. My Roomba now cleans my tile floors.

                    Roomba came with me to Florida

                    Bad Brushes

                    Comments about iRobot 500 and Professional Series Brush Pack for Red or Green Cleaning Heads:

                    Stay away from any of the brushes with a ring on each end. When hair (pet, human) gets wrapped around the ring it can overheat and melt/warp the rings.

                      I wish the battery lasted longer. I have to allow the Roomba to recharge before I can clean the entire house. Since I own pets I have to clean the brushes several times during each use.
                      Overall, the Roomba has saved me personal energy and time and does a pretty good job. The Roomba was recommended to me by a freind. I am always talking the Roomba telling her what she has missed. :)

                      I have been a Roomba user for 7 years, and have recommended it to everyone I know. The replacement brushes, however, are substandard. Others have mentioned that the 2 brush rollers don't provide enough contact with the floor to brush dirt up--pet hair lingers. But the biggest problem I have had is the 3-armed edger brush that comes with this set. It is MUCH too flimsy to operate! it becomes tangled and twisted under the unit and stops the Roomba's tires from turning. [...]

                        These new brushes are terrible compared to the older red brushes. Unfortunately, my husband threw the red one away or I wouldn't even use these green ones. What used to take 2 cycles to completely clean all the dust and dog hair from a room now takes three or more. After one pass there is still a ton of dog hair on the floor. It looks like nothing has happened. Terrible.
