Has your Roomba vacuum been acting strange lately? Well, yours might not be the only one.
USA Today is reporting that some i7 and s9 models of the robot vacuums have been experiencing issues due to a recent software update, iRobot said in a statement emailed to USA TODAY. The company said the issues affect a "limited number" of models.
"We've worked with impacted customers to roll their robot's software back, and we are also implementing an update to ensure any similar issues are avoided moving forward," said iRobot in its statement.
The company said the update is being rolled out over the next several weeks.
Details of the issues and response were first reported by The Verge. Users on social media and sites like Reddit have complained of issues with their Roombas, including the vacuums behaving erratically. Reddit searches for "3.12.8," the name of the software update causing issues, turn up several posts on the Roomba subreddit claiming the vacuum acts like it's "drunk."
