SOURCE: my roomba starts 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.

SOURCE: roomba red 4100 cleans in small circle stops

When the status light comes on, the Roomba is going to sing "uh-oh," and then beep a number of times. Count the beeps. They're a code that tells you what's wrong with the Roomba. You can check iRobot's website for a chart of beep codes. Search "What is Roomba saying to me?" on the troubleshooting page.

you need to turn roomba over, leave the battery in, push the wheels at the same time 15 times. after that, push the front bumper about 15 times. then turn on roomba and press clean.

SOURCE: My roomba goes round in circles. sometimes it

Your bump sensors are malfunctioning.. The best thing to do is order a repair kit. I ordered mine from EESolutions.ca and it worked great. I'd recommend them.

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.

Starts out backwards, then circles ,then stops. and repeats


Remove all three wheels and make sure they're clean. Tap the bumper with your hand, and maybe blow out behind it with compressed air. If the problem continues, call us-- it's in the wheel motors, most likely. 1-877-855-8593.

Roomba just runs in small circles


i just recently had someone bring in a roomba discovery and all it would do is stay in a tight 4 tile area and go in circles. battery was fully charged and all bumpers were clear.

i took a can of air blast for cleaning computers and blasted the area on the bottom underneath the sensor and watched as several dust bunnies came flying out.gave it a few more blasts for good measure and put it back on the floor and hit power then clean buttons.

thing went in same tight circle for 2 passes then the circle got bigger for 2 more passes , blue light indicator came on and it made a straight line dash across to closed door and started following the edge and criss-crossing the room.

called the owner back in to test and it repeated the same moves when she started it and all appeared to be working normal again.

Roomba Red Problem


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.
