Question about Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
The normal action would be to leave the docking station, go towards the center of the room and then start making circles while get larger and larger until the whole room has been done. Then it should go the opposite direction and then the room is finished.
I could not tell by your question, if you were talking about the normal function or if it was just going in circles in the same space - right and then left and shutting down after that.
If it is turning a few circles right and then left, and then the light that the dirt compartment comes in indicating its full - when it is not full - then the sensors are dirty and need to be cleaned. I have this same problem with mine. I have the roomba red. The first few times it did this (turned circles right and then left and then the full light came on) I took it apart and cleaned the filter, then removed any debris that became stuck around the wheels (like hair or string). Then I wiped it down with a wet towel and dried it and that seemed to do the trick. It ran for another six months or so before it began doing the same thing again. After that point the cleaning did not work anymore and I had to buy new filters to get it to work right again.
Try cleaning it out as indicated above and replacing the filter with a brand new one. If that does not work, contact the manufacturer for repair.
