    Title:
    Roomba 880 sensors detecting tile grout?
    Description:

    My Roomba 880 did a good job cleaning my 1,950 sq ft single-level house for the first couple of weeks, but now it is getting stuck in the hallway as if something is blocking its path.  Its behavior makes me think that the sensors are seeing the tile, or the tile grout, and the Roomba thinks that they are barriers.  It will move about 6-12 inches, stop, spin around, and repeat.  The tiles are 18 inch squares and the hallway is fairly dark.  I have tried wiping off the sensors, but that did not work.

    Thanks!
