Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again.

I have a Bissel Pro Heat Plus and I used it once, one year ago. I may be using it wrong, as my carpets were wet and there was no return (dirty water).
