Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

How old is the Roomba?

Does it just go an inch (at most) or just twitch, then stop?

I suspect its battery may need replacing. All rechargeable batteries currently used in portable or moving electronic devices, of whatever technology, eventually fail either in delivering voltage level, or in meeting power demands (such as running a motor, in this case as I see it, as opposed to just running routine control circuitry.)

If you need instructions on how to replace the battery, and where to get a replacement battery, tell me the model # ***** your Roomba in Reply, and I shall advise you further.
