FAQs of Roomba 671

Is this the best irobot for pet hair ?

Answer: unknown about pet hair as our 2 yorkies shed almost no hair. but the wife just loves it, does a great job

Question: How much does the replacement battery cost for the 671 Roomba?

Answer: I do not know never replaced it yet

Question: Does it learn your room? Or it bounces from wall to wall like older models?

Answer: It bounces randomly. Pretty effective but for sure, doesn’t beat the i7 and its own trash bin emptying system. I have both.

Question: When I want it to dock, I press clean and then dock, then the dock signal flashes, but it just goes on cleaning & doesn’t dock for 25 + minutes..why??

Answer: Mine did the same behaving issues all the time with this piece of crap. Expensive and not reliable

Question: When I want it to dock, I press clean and then dock, (the dock signal flashes), but Roe just goes on cleaning & doesn’t dock for 10 + minutes..why??

Answer: If the dock is flashing, it will try to locate its dock. If you press dock right in front of it, it will go to the dock right away – if, for some reason, it hits something on the way or doesn’t fit the dock properly, it will give a long turn before heading back to the dock again.

Question: My Roe docked after 25 minutes this morning even though it was fully charged.. Why? 

Answer: Maybe clean the bin and try again. If it happens again do a reboot to the device .

Question: My irobot 671 doesn’t return to dock

Answer: Make sure that there’s a large clear space around the dock. But I do find that occasionally it just can’t find the dock before it runs out of battery. I just pick it up and put it on the dock.
