Diane, this can be caused by dirty or defective bumper sensor as well as dirty cliff sensors. Clean the Roomba with compressed air and "slap" the front bumper. Apparently, the front bumper mechanism can get stuck with any contact with a wall etc. which will make the Roomba back up. Use these guides to work on your Roomba. Check on here for more information as well. Hope this helps, good luck.
