Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum ?

Just goes in a small circle, no lights to indicate problem

\015 Starts just fine, goes nowhere, as if it were meeting an edge, just turns and turns as if it is looking for a way out of a predictament. I have cleaned it very well, and assume it is a sensor sending a bad message, or dirt somewhere that I cannot see. Any ideas?\015

Answers :
