Cliff sensors problems

This is a common problem with many Roomba devices caused by a misperception in the device's cliff sensors. A Roomba’s cliff sensors are located on the bottom of the device and give it the ability to sense if it is going to fall off a ledge. However, these sensors often mistake a dark carpet or floor for a cliff. There is a fix for this!
