Too bad! Reminds me of me trying to repair my pool cleaning robot. It cost a $1000 US and I used it maybe a year on my parents house and mine. Motor went out, took iapart the mysterious black box with all the "anti-tamper" leagalize and anti tamper torx screws only to find that I could not source the motor with out buying the entire piece of kit which cost $800 US. Moral of the Story? In my mind, you can't be a winner all the time, bear in mind I did research before I spent my 1000 dollar tax refund back in the day : ( PEaCeWe've got an iRobot vacuum cleaner. About a year old, beater bar motor is dead. Same thing, hard to source a replacement and even if you can it's expensive. Swapping a different motor in may not be worth it. It needs to fit into a certain space, integral with a housing/ belt setup. I'll probably give it a shot though. This stuff is manufactured and sold but not supported in any way.
