SOURCE: my roomba goes in the same circle over and over

Sometimes this can occur when one of the wheel motor sensors has dirt in it. I have had some success blowing compressed air into my main wheel units. You can disassemble them for cleaning, but it is quite involved.

SOURCE: 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.

Sounds like the 9-beep error. Google "roomba repair kit" to get it fixed.

It just goes in circles. It doesn't beep. Just goes in circles. I have had it about six months and have not had any problems with it.


Question . . . Have you cleaned the sensors and such? If so, Try holding the "power" button for 5 seconds to reload the firmware. Good Luck

How do I figure out which model I have? I do not have any manuals for my roomba. Currently when I turn it on, it will make a continuous non-increasing circle, then shut itself off.


HI There,

In order to find out which model Roomba you have, turn the machine upside down and look for a sticker that contains the serial and model number.

There are basically 2 different series of Roomba's, the newer 500 series, and the older 4000 series Discovery series. These models usually had multiple buttons on the top, unlike the newer 500 series which have just one.

The older series models included a white, red, green, and yellow colored machines, where as the newer 500 series models have a more sleek design, usually with just a single button in the center. The newer 500 series have colors of black, and silver with different combinations of the two.

Here's a link to pictures of all of the different Roomba series ever made, and the models that they contained:

Also, in terms of the circling problem your Roomba is having, here's a very helpful link that will show you how to fix the "Roomba Circle Dance" as it's been named, haha dancing robotic vacuum cleaners, I just got a mental picture, lol.

Roomba 560 goes in circles. appears lost


You have a locked wheel switch that needs to be cleared. You will need to remove the top of your roomba and find which wheel switch is clogged and clear it.

Backward spinning roomba


If you are lucky then one of the 4 sensors under the bumper has dust lint buildup. Blow out these areas and give your unit a good cleaning. If it still continues to do this then the bumper bar sensor should be replaced

Backs up spins in circles, then red light flashes and beeps


Sounds like either the battery is bad or not being charged properly with subsequent loss of programming.
