Question about Roomba Pro Elite Bagless Robotic Vacuum
Circle Dance? Not sure what's wrong--it acts like it's bumping into walls. Rolls forward a foot, then backs up, turns, does it again. The bumper is not stuck and we've tried forced air cleaning everything we can get to. Someone mentioned sensors under the roller (two metal discs, but we don't see them). Please help. We need a schematic of this machine or some instructions for taking it apart so we can get to the sensors on the wheels--or whatever needs to be cleaned.
The electronics have failed most likely. Not uncommon. If it is within the warranty period call the company ( good luck with that ) and they will send you a new one. These machines are not designed to be repaired other than brush replacement and filters, dust containers, etc.

I had the same back-up, turn, move forward a couple inches, backup-up, etc. problem. Try cleaning/cutting the hair, etc. out from around the brushes, as well as around the ends of the brushes. Also, try a Q-tip to clean out the four pair of sensors (on my Roomba there are four pairs of little lenses under the bottom of the bumper) that (apparently) can cause the Roomba to think it is going over a cliff so it backs up. I didn't have a can of compressed air, so I turned it over on the grass and went after it with a leaf blower..up close. Lots of dust came out and it has worked fine since.
