My irobot roomba 4110 is going in circles


Check all the wheels to make sure that they are ok. Check the sensors on the bottom and make sure they are all clean.

Roomba going in circles


Roomba going in circles. Called irobot and if reseting it (by taking out the battery, unplugging it from the charger, and holding down the power button for 30 seconds), didn't work, turn the roomba over, take a compressor and blow air into the front. Maybe a shop vac would also work. We cleaned out the whole thing while we were at it. And now it works just fine. The tech person at irobot was very helpful.

Bin barely fills. Lots of dog hair between brushes and bin, and is now dropping hair balls as it goes around the house


This is why Roomba recommends a thorough clean of your carpet with a standard vac prior to using your mini vac. Once all heavy debris has been removed, the roomba will maintain that state of clean.

Roomba 560 goes in small circles like it is in "spot mode". Wheels are clean and push up and down and turn easily.


Its likely to be a sensor problem, Either the cliff sensors or one of the 3 wheel drop sensors are the most likely problem.

Roomba circles


Yes, this is known issue and if your bumper moves freely, you might be facing a sensor fault caused by poor quality of components.

Goes in circles


If you have the 4XX series or 4XXX series then your issues are coming from the sensor in the wheels. You will need to clean them PROPERLY.
