Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Some questions need to be asked about this sort of problem:

- Did the replacement brush work for a while, then stop working? or did it just not work, despite being replaced.

- How old is the Roomba in question?

- Have you examined and cleaned out the Roomba?
