I had this problem with mine, it was just going in a circle, some people suggested to clean the bump sensor with air, it may work for you, but it didn't for me, I found out that the problem was a servo motor at one of the wheels, bought a refurbished set of wheels, took the Roomba apart and replaced the part, working like a champ.

SOURCE: circles

Do you have it set on "spot"? This causes Roomba to start out in circles, expanding and expanding until a certain time and then returns by going in circles, making smaller circles, until it gets to its starting point.

Moves in circles and backwards, though will not move forward


Sounds like your bumper switch is stuck. try pulling on the bumper to free it, then clear any obstructions you find.

Turns in circles, acts like it hits a virtual wall then stops


Reboot is probably not your solution. Your Roomba will react to invisible signals or 'interference' from other electrical appliances as well as the invisible wall boxes. You can clearly see how this happens when a Roomba gets near your computer or other device that is on. Also, the Roomba will go in circles when the dirt chamber is full or it thinks it's full. Try a thorough clean of all major parts including the brushes. Sometimes this activity will occur when the brushes get snarled on thread or carpet fibers.

Roomba going backwards


I had the same kind of problem with my model 400 today...after starting it and having it go in a circle for 30 seconds or so it would finally run into something and then back up a few inches, turn, then go forward a few inches, then back up a few inches, turn, then go forward a few inches, etc., etc.. I tried cleaning off the four pairs of sensors under the bumper and blowing out various things underneath (by mouth since I didn't have any canned compressed air). It didn't really help. It then occurred to me that I had a leaf blower! I put the Roomba upside down on the grass, put the leaf blower on high, and blew at it from all directions and up close. More dust came out than I thought would. It has been running normally now for the last 45 minutes.

My roomba runs in circles


Try using a leaf blower, up close and all around. I was having problems with (I assume) the sensors under the bumper and (maybe) the wheel sensors, but after blowing it out with a leaf blower it works fine.

Roomba just runs in small circles


It's little brain is having a seizure. Really! It's a programming fault. If you look on the machine, usually the bottom, you'll find a 1-800 number you can call and they have a solution for it. It's fairly common for this to happen and it cannot be solved with any mechanical solution.
