Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 560 Robotic Vacuum ?

My roomba now just spins in circles in one spot. it does not go anywhere.


Answers :

Try blowing out your bumper with compressed air. Tap the bumper with your hand to knock loose any obstructions. Then run your Roomba. If the behavior persists, the best way to resolve it is to call customer support. (The number should be in your documentation or on the bottom of the robot.)
