Hello. First time poster, new Roomba owner.
My 1 month old Roomba 530 has developed a problem where it circles only to the right. It appears to me that the right wheel is not turning. I have been using iRobots's online support but their proposed solutions have started to repeat themselves.
This morning my Roomba got stuck in one place and appears to have run for quite some time trying to extract itself because of the depths of the wheel marks. (It had gotten wedged under one of those springy door stops that sticks out of the baseboard.) Since then it only goes in circles.
I have cleaned out the wheel wells using compressed air, turned the wheels by hand, pumped them in and out by hand - all to no effect. I have tapped the bumper and tried to clear it with compressed air. I have held down DOCK and SPOT to reset it. I have cleaned the nose wheel. I have cleaned both brush and roller. I have cleaned the dust bin. All to no effect.
Now when I run it, the Roomba circles to the right in the same spot. It sometimes temporarily speeds up. It sometimes backs up. But it keeps circling. When it's done, it makes the bad sound and then 11 beeps which indicates the bumper.
Any ideas? This thing is only a month old. Thanks in advance.
