Roomba Newbie here

Postby salilsurendran » January 21st, 2013, 5:46 am

Hello,
I just unpacked my first Roomba 650 today and waiting for it to get charged:
1. Was wondering how does it manage wires etc. I have my laptop and my on floor fan both powered by wires connected to wall sockets.
2. Do I really need to clean the bin and the brushes after every cleaning?

If the roomba detects a stall from wires it will reverse the brushes to free the jam. But it is best to run the wires along a wall or get them out of the way.

You should empty the bin (no need to clean it) and clean the brushes after each run initially. Once you get a feel for how full the bin gets and how dirty the brushes are you may be able to skip one or more cleanings.

By next month, you'll most likely have at least 6 of them.. It's a drug :)
