When I have my kitchen light on, and while the Roomba is in the kitchen working, he won't drive fast until I turn off the light, which is a CF bulb. Also, dirty IR's will cause the slow type of behavior. I have had to take off the front bumper to clean them twice now where the compressed air didn't work....Just some thoughts

After looking online again I realized I should have cut the tin foil longer like you show above with the paper. I readded new longer tin foil but it didn't work this time. I got the "Please clean cliff sensors" message. Then I tried the smaller pieces of foil like before. That didn't work either. At that point I was really confused and tired of working on my robot that is suppose to give me less work and stress, not more.
Anyway... this paper easily did the trick and it doesn't seam to be as finnicky or hard to work with as tin foil.
I purchased my 560 from sears with a 45 day return for any reason policy. I'm 14 days in and am loving it...when the cliff sensors are disabled. I'm watching it closely though. When you dish out $350 for a robot, you better make sure it works before your return policy runs out.
Any behavior I should keep my eyes open for?
Or is it that if it's working it's working properly?
