SOURCE: red sensor

If your Roomba's red "check robot" light comes on, the Roomba should also give a hi-lo warning tone, then a number of beeps. Check the number of beeps with the chart toward the end of your manual-- it should tell you what to do.

if it does, you are facing a known issue of bumper sensor fail.

SOURCE: my irobot goes in circles

I had the same problem. I had the circle dance and looked around for a fix. Finally found a site that sends out do it yourself kits. I was apprehensive because I'm not that good at fixing things. I tried it out because it is a lot cheaper then a lot of other places and I found it on a forum that recommended it. Anyways, I'm here to say that the kit worked and it only cost me $20. A lot cheaper then anything else out there. It took me about 2 hours to finish and I am so happy. I really love my Roomba. Anyways, the site is http://www.eesolutions.ca . Check it out if you have the circle dance problem.

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.

It may just be fried, or has a problem with it's programming. talk to the factory, and see what you can do. If it's still under warrenty, send it back.

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.

560 backs out of charging base then only turns in right circles


Yes, this is known issue and if your bumper moves freely, you might be facing a sensor fault caused by poor quality of components.
Here is a guide to fix it

My Roomba 560 has started to run in small steps as if it constantly meets an obstacle and turns around in a very small circle. It advances slightly, backs slightly and turns and then does this again and...


It probably does think its met an obstacle. It could be the bump sensor switch remains pressed, one of the 4 cliff sensors on the front is dirty, or one of the 3 wheel drop sensors (left right and caster) is alarmed. Clean the sensors and your problem may resolve.
