Answers :

Roomba going in circles.\012Called 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.
Cleaning is just a temporary solution. You will have to replace components in your Roomba. You can just order a repair kit online to do this. I fixed mine using a repair kit from eesolutions.ca. The instructions were straight forward.
