Side brush stuck in carpet

Side brush stuck in carpet

Since the roborok can sense when it is on carpet, can it be programmed to turn off the side brush while on carpet? The side brush can easily get tangled up in carpet and this would alleviate that issue. For reference I have the s6 pure.

  • Bought a S4Max from Amazon last week. Have the same issue. All my bedrooms have medium pile carpet and the side brush kept getting entangled on the carpet strands and would not move. This is a poorly designed side brush design. I have used many different robo vacuums and none had this issue. Its a deal breaker for my house which is half wall to wall carpet.

  • I also face with the side brush issue on mid pile carpet. Topic has been open for almost 1 year, but no improvements!. Actually I just bought s5 max for such carpets and disappointed. Using no go zones can not be a solution,

    Maybe you can send us a picture to show the carpet so that we can see if there's any suggestion we can make.

    Just got this vacuum too, and this feature would be awesome! Please add it either via thick carpet detection, or maybe something similar to no mop zone (no side brush zone).

  • Just purchased an S7+. Have this exact problem. I’m very disappointed that this issue clearly has been going on for over a year, yet lip service is only given. When are you going to listen to us?

  • Hi,


    It does not support this feature, instead, you can use invisible walls or no go zones to avoid the carpet.

    See pic attached.


    And we will forward this request to our R&D team and hope that they can add it in the future, but for now, we cannot promise anything.

  • I'd also like to express interest in this feature. I have an area rug and the S6 Pure will REGULARLY get tangled on the pile. The only options I currently have are:

    1) have it not clean the rug

    2) remove the brush

    Both of these greatly reduces the usefulness of the Roborock.

    Can you please share a picture of how your carpet and the tangled side brush here? Another type of side brush may probably help address the issue.

  • I'm going to ditto this request for another option to turn the rubber sweeper off when on carpet. Yesterday our E4 got twisted and stuck 4 times in medium pile carpet, and even had a piece of the brush break off because it couldn't be unentangled from the carpet. I have removed the brush, but plan to return my purchase if I can't find a remedy.

  • My S5 Max also gets the side brush stuck on our carpet. For me, the best solution is to just remove the side brush when using it on our carpet, I hope that they can fix the issue with programming, but for now I just take the brush off.

  • This should have been developed a year ago. This is about the most basic feature. On my first day of use one of the rubber arms rip off because it was tangled and strangled on the edge of medium carpet. Pretty disappointing.

    @Wvinicius:

    What do you mean put this on the schedule?Also, you can set no go zone around the carpet area so that the robot won't go there and get itself stuck.

    Besides, where and when did you purchase this robot?

  • Hi, I also have an s5 max that is also stuck in carpet with long pile. It is carpet in the whole room so it can't be blocked. Attached is a picture. An option to disable the sweep brush for a room would be a great feature. I have to remove the brush in order to clean the room now and is very inconvenient.

    Thank you,

  • Just purchased S4 Max this week. The side brush got tangled in the rug every time in ran over it. Had to put in a No-Go zone to avoid this. Needing a feature to disable side brush on carpet. Is there an option to replace the rubber side brush with something that doesn't get hung up on carpet?

  • I have the same issue with a new Roborock S7. I have had it two days and it has gotten stuck both the area rug in the living room and the bathroom rug about 6-7 times. Not sure if I am going to keep it. Doesn't look like Roborock is doing much to address the issue. Has anyone gotten any positive results from taking a picture contacting support?

    If the hair is not too long, we do have another type of brush that can work well on some of the carpet. Maybe you can contact support@roborock.com to get prompter reply.

  • This is happening on my Roborock S7 that I just bought.

    It got stuck on the carpet in its first few minutes of operation; and this is a newly carpeted/cleaned room.

    This is not good.

  • I recently bought a Roborock S7 due to the good review from my friend. Unfortunately, on the first day of using it, the side brush got stuck in the carpet. The side brush was damaged. Since then, I would not use it to clean the carpet as it keeps getting stuck. It would have been better if the side brush could be turned off manually from the App or programed not to function on carpets.

    It was quite disappointing having it being damaged on the first used! Other than that, it cleaned the house well.
