How to reset Roomba

Roomba is an autonomous vacuum and one of the most popular consumer robots in existence. It navigates around clutter and under furniture cleaning your floors and returns to its charging dock when finished.

A factory reset of your Roomba is typically recommended in the following scenarios:

  • When you are planning to sell a robot or transfer ownership of your robot to another user.
  • As a troubleshooting step, when the behavior cannot be resolved in another way.

It is often done to resolve unexpected behavioral changes, problems with Wi-Fi connections, and other errors. If this occurs, follow the steps below to reset your Roomba.

Once your iRobot vacuum has been reset to default settings, you will need to set it up once
again and start its learning session.

**Note: With a factory reset, your robot will be removed from your account and all personal data and settings will be lost from your robot, but your Customized Smart Maps will be saved to your account.
