roombal getting stuck ON furniture legs

Postby Symbiot » December 2nd, 2012, 5:47 am

Hi

I've read many ideas to prevent the iroomba from getting stuck under stuff..
But mine gets stuck on the legs of my sofa and chairs. They're "flat" legs.. they level out on the floor so to speak.. |_ <--like that...

So the rooma manages to run it self up on the leg, and then it can't get down.. which is fairly annoying because it never completes a run...
It actually means that my roomba isn't in use ATM, because it never gets very far before it gets stuck..

I can't use a tower to prevent it from going "into" my furniture area, since it's quite large..

Can someone give me some help/ideas/clues on how to avoid this?

You might consider using some type of thin squares made of wood or metal or even rug samples that are dark in color, preferably non-reflective black. Place them under the legs and test with your Roomba.
