Answers :

If you have pets, and even if you do not, the Roomba robots use optical position sensors on the wheels to tell it how far it has turned, how far it has moved, when it needs to turn around,etc, and if those axles get wadded up with hair, lint, threads, etc, it does not know where it has been, nor where to go, orr that it is moving at all. Also make sure the front bumper is not catching on any part of the unit itself.

Make screws are snug, then pop each wheel out of it's holder except the traction tires, and clean the accumulation off of it. Make sure the traction wheels have clean axles and that there is no accumulation of fuzz, thread, hair in the gearing that drives the tires.

Also make sure the whisker switches have the whiskers clean and are not folded underneath. Also see if they are clearing the floor surface and not bent downward.

If it continues to do that, remove the battery for about 2 minutes to clear the mapping instructions (the processor memory stays live when battery power is available and the reason they discharge so fast when not in daily use and not docked. Then set it in the middle of the room and press "Super Clean" and see if it will work then.

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position.
