Your Roomba does not like going over dark objects.

This is a common problem with many Roomba devices caused by a misperception in the device's cliff sensors. A Roomba’s cliff sensors are located on the bottom of the device and give it the ability to sense if it is going to fall off a ledge. However, these sensors often mistake a dark carpet or floor for a cliff. There is a fix for this!

Your Roomba does not seem to be cleaning.

Check to see if your bin needs to be emptied. It is possible the Roomba's system does not sense that it is full.

If your bin is all clean and is still not working, it may need to be replaced. The bin should easily slide out if you push on the large button above it. You can buy replacement bins here.
