Question about iRobot Roomba Red 4100 Bagless Robotic Vacuum
Unit worked well until I sent it on a mission to clean after kids were in the house. The following day the unit started waddling like a ruptured duck, it would go forward about a foot then make a partial turn, forward another foot, partial turn. This behavior continued within about a two foot square area until the unit stopped.
I could tap the bumper and the unit would turn and start circling, then would lock in the motion described above.
I did take the unit apart (field stripped it) and cleaned all surfaces with a dry soft cloth and all of the sensors with a Q-Tip (this included the wheels).
Mine did a similar thing. I kept trying to use it anyway, when it made a violent jerk (I thought it had broken something) and it started to work again.
Have you tried pressing both buttons at the same time to make it go straight ahead? It might work.
