No, your Roomba doesn’t have a mind of it’s own, nor is it tipsy from having too much to drink. When your roomba goes in circles you might think it’s broken, or think it’s going crazy! Ok, so it might not be going crazy but it could be broken… If you want to find out more, read on…

I’m a pretty regular reader and contributor over at the robot reviews forums and this problem comes up very often. It’s not happened to me yet but it’s happened to so many people, and I’ve read so much about it that I feel that a blog post is warranted.
