Roomba acting weird.. is it because of the dog/cat fur? Original Message Mar 31, 2012 4:00 pm
I have an iRobot vacuum and it started going backwards in circles!!! It's frustrating, there's lots of cat hair and dog fur in the brushes and I clean them regularly. Is this causing my vacuum to go crazy??? Does anyone know how to fix this??

Hi all, I just wanted to do a quick update. I've done some research and came across a website that sells repair kits for my Roomba problem. I have since ordered a solder free kit to repair my poor lil Roomba. I ordered online from http://eesolutions.ca/roomba_repair_kit.html. I will report back later with results.

Sometimes the sensors can get dirty and that's why it starts acting a little crazy; it doesn't know what it's supposed to do. Try to clean up under the bumper and see if that will free up any excess pet hair near the sensors.

Happy to report that everything worked like a charm. I was able to fix my broken Roomba and well now I'm no longer scared of it breaking down. Well at least I know how to fix the 9-beep error thing. I guess that's what it's called. I'm so happy.
