    This robotic vacuum is so funny to watch

    published

    We love watching this robot vac as it hits walls and goes back and just hits it again and again until it's not funny. The dust in the box is heaps so it must get the dirt out of the floor our stick vac can't do. It did cost a bit more than the Lower prices one but it's ok

    I don’t know how I lived without it!

    published

    I wanted a Roomba because I wanted to free up some of the time I spend cleaning, with a wood fire, two cats and a dog that spend a lot of time inside I had found myself Vacuuming and sweeping every day. I was a little sceptical but went ahead with the purchase anyway and I am so glad I did, this is my second favourite appliance second only to my dishwasher. I have it automatically set to go off every day while I am at work and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I don’t need to sweep/vacuum at all and I have so much more time to relax. We have vinyl plank flooring and carpet and it works well on both.

    Hi Taya
    Thank you for reviewing the iRobot Roomba 690. It is awesome that we now have a 600 series Roomba that you can set and forget, only to be reminded when you get home, because you have clean floors.
    Kind regards iRobot

    Love it!

    This does exactly what i need. Put it on every morning when leaving for work on our floorboards and I come home to no mess. Pet hair gone! Noise level is comparable to a hairdryer, so we only use it when we are out. Doesn't replace a major vacuum and mop but is lovely to come home to a house with clean floors. Surprised how much dirt and hair it picks up. No problem going from floorboards to rugs, floorboards to carpet areas. Happy with my purchase - helps make me feel like I have a clean house! Have gone from stick vacuuming eating areas daily, and a big vacuum and mop every week - to every few weeks. Thumbs up!

    Excellent vaccum cleaner

    published

    Due to an injury l am unable to vac the iRobot Roomba takes care of all of that and cleans the floors perfectly right into the corners and under tables. I have polished concrete floors and the iRobot scoots around vaccing with no problems at all. I am so happy with my new vac, l can even program it to do the vacuuming when l am out or whenever l like through WIFI. It is the best vac ever,

    It sucks

    published

    Worked about 6 months then called customer support that does NOT speak English and I was told to get a screw driver to work on the machine that is supposed to be under warranty??? The area that it is supposed to clean is only the bottom floor which is all tile and hard wood... maybe 1500 sq ft

    Roomba 690

    I have a iRobot 670, if I set up barriers for cleaning but the dock station is out of this area, will the robot go until it runs out of battery or will it shut off when the area is completed?
    Thanks

    If I shut a door after my 690 cleans a room, will it interfere with the mapping function?

    Roomba 690

    Just bought a 690 for my wife for Christmas. Two questions: 1. it doesn't try to return to the charging station, which is set up as the instructions direct; i.e., no barriers. It runs until the battery runs out then it just stops in place. 2. It seems random redirecting itself when it nudges an obstacle. We find we have to let it run into a foot or a barrier placed in the way to try to get it to complete a room and then it sometimes follows the same track where it has previously been. Isn't it supposed to keep track of where it has been?

    Good Morning Evan
    This model Roomba will only clean as much of the house as it can in its approx 60 minute run time. The iAdapt Navigation System on this model uses your walls and furniture to help the Roomba navigate the home. This being said, you will find this Roomba will clean sections multiple times more than others.

    We have found some customers are setting their charging stations up at a location at one end of the home, making it little harder for the Roomba to make it back before the battery runs out. We recommend having the charging station in a central location or if required adding a second charging station, so the Roomba can return to the closest one for charging.

    If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office directly on 1300 727 421.
    Kind regards iRobot
