    Which model do you have? Does it give you an error signal, any beeps, a voice command?

Mine was doing this too. I think the stair sensors might have been dirty. I used compressed air to blow out the entire front of it and it started acting normal again.

Rumba is blowing not sucking


There is a small slit that gets full of dust bunnies inside the dust bin . Open the "lips" on the blue soft rubber sweeper and clean the slit with a small screwdriver or toothpick and that will take care of dirt blowing out.

I robot rumba- does not go forward, keeps backing up and turning


sounds like one of the cliff sensors has gone bad. I think your options are to send it in for repair or buy a replacement sensor and swap it in.

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.
