Today we are going to be showing you some key differences between the Neato Botvac 80 and the newer Botvac Connected as well as steps on: *How to change the filters *How to clean the brushes *How to clean the sensor Head
On the left is the original Botvac connected brush, on the right is the replacement ordered from amazon The replacement spins very freely, allowing the battery life to last longer because the motor doesn't have to work as hard to spin the end piece
The newer replacements work with the older Botvac, and vice versa
They are interchangeable within both systems. We will show you how the Botvac 80 brush can fit inside the Botvac Connected. One advantage with the older piece that the newer one doesn't have is that when you remove the end of the bearing off it allows hair to be cleaned. This allows the motor to spin more freely with the brush. The same also goes with the newer piece. As you can see, we have it placed in the older Botvac 80. We place the Botvac connected brush in the older model, with the free spinning end where you would place the original brush.
Now that the dirt bin is clean we can move on to cleaning the filter
Simply bring it again to the side of the garbage, tapping it on the sides to remove all of the dirt picked up. Give it a little brush off if needed. We can now place it back inside the dirt bin ready to go.

Questions and Answers
Botvac Connected side brush not spinning. can I fix that myself?
A new brush also doesn't work. So the problem seems to be the pin that holds the brush in place. It goes inside the chassis so I cannot check for internal debris or hair that could prevent it from moving. Is there a way to fix that?. Thanks. I need to fix the side brush not clean or replace the main brush. I have tried: Replace with new one. I don't want to open the chassis yet. I think it was caused by: I am not sure. Maybe dust? Or the motor attached to the board is faulty.
