    Hi,

    No my Roomba is still doing circles. What else can I do or where can I take it to be repaired. i live in Mona Vale NSW

    Hi, please disregard the non-informed people trying to answer your problem. Your Roomba sounds like it is sufferring from the 9-beep error. This can be repaired by ordering a do-it-yourself repair kit fromhttp://www.eesolutions.ca. Their is also a video on the site you can look at to compare the behavior with your Roomba. I hope that helps.

Hello
Check the battery for full charge first. The fault you reports seems to be software malfunction. After charging the device fully, reset the Roomba; To reset, do the following.

To reset Roomba's software, hold down the spot and dock/demo buttons

for 12 seconds. This will clear all scheduled cleaning times, reset the clock
and may resolve some software issues.
This must surely solve your probelm.

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.

My roomba won't go forward it just spins in a circle and will go backwards. I have already tried cleaning it out and cleaning the front bumper sensors.


You will need to take the top off to clear those wheels.
This happens a lot when cleaning new carpet. The fuzz jams the wheel switch, and dosey do you go.
