The Roomba 690 is one of three options in the 600 series line that`s the cheapest in Roomba`s product line.
You can label rooms and even set cleaning schedules for each area. The iRobot Roomba bots, including the newer i6 to i8+, s9, and S9+, the brand new iRobot Roomba j7+, and even the m6 mopping robot can create multiple maps for different floors and spaces.
To view a Clean Map™ Report of the most recently performed cleaning job, open the iRobot® HOME App and select the card under History from the Home screen. To see other previous cleans, either scroll through the cards to the left or select the > next to History.
Roomba® Model #
To find your Roomba® model number, turn the robot over. The model number is printed near the left wheel, on the underside of the robot.
Keep your robot plugged in and charging on the Home Base® or Clean Base™ when not in use. If your robot will not be used for more than a few weeks, we recommend placing the robot in ship mode. and storing it in a cool, dry place.
Most owners believe that running their robot vacuums four times per week is sufficient to keep the floors dust-free. However, if you have children or pets, you should use your robot vacuum more frequently. Daily vacuuming is recommended if you suffer from seasonal allergies.
Made by iRobot, these robotic vacuum cleaners use sensors to detect walls and items in a room, becoming smarter the more frequently they clean.
iRobot has continuously improved its products since introducing the first Roomba roughly 20 years ago. In 2015, these improvements started involving cameras. The 7th-generation Roomba sported an upward-facing camera for identifying “landmarks” like lamps and sofas to improve navigation.
Roomba® can also learn your home as it cleans. It typically takes three (3) to five (5) cleaning missions or Mapping Runs to generate a fully developed Imprint™ Smart Map that you can then customize and use.
Most companies developing high-end robot vacuums use visual simultaneous localization and mapping (VSLAM) or LiDAR technology to build a virtual map of the room. These technologies enable the robot vacuum to move around more efficiently, covering an entire level of a home with multiple rooms.
Users simply start a Roomba® cleaning job and the robot will methodically collect Wi-Fi signal information as it cleans. Upon completion of the cleaning job, the app will present a Wi-Fi Coverage Map for the area cleaned that corresponds to the familiar Clean Map.

How do I figure out which model I have? I do not have any manuals for my roomba. Currently when I turn it on, it will make a continuous non-increasing circle, then shut itself off.
.In order to find out which model Roomba you have, turn the machine upside down and look for a sticker that contains the serial and model number.
.There are basically 2 different series of Roomba’s, the newer 500 series, and the older 4000 series Discovery series. These models usually had multiple buttons on the top, unlike the newer 500 series which have just one.
.The older series models included a white, red, green, and yellow colored machines, where as the newer 500 series models have a more sleek design, usually with just a single button in the center. The newer 500 series have colors of black, and silver with different combinations of the two.
.Here’s a link to pictures of all of the different Roomba series ever made, and the models that they contained:

Roomba Discovery My Roomba turns on and moves but the brushes won’t turn. Someone told me that I had forgotten to put in the yellow and black end bearings, but I did. Help, I miss my Roomba
I have a Roomba 530, I have had it for 2 weeks and really loved it. I have followed all the cleaning instructions etc.. Then the Roomba wanted it’s brushes cleaning “please clean Roombas brushes” So thinking that something was stuck I removed and cleaned the brushes, (yellow tabs on and in place by the way)
I read somewhere that you need to clear the software in case there is a glitch. To do this, take the battery out and then, simultaneously hold down the “spot” and “clean” buttons for 30 seconds. Replace battery. This has worked for my Discovery model.
I have a roomba 530 pet series. It appears that the brushes aren’t turning. They are free of dirt and debris and move easily when manually turned. But, You can tell there may not be a motor turning, because the roomba is more quiet than normal when you turn it on. Also, the hair just collects along the bottom of the brush and doesn’t get pushed into the bin.
The belt either broke or has come off the track…. this should be easily accessable from the underside of vaccuum
The brushes on the Hoover All Terrain Steamvac won’t turn. However, when I try to turn them manually they will turn. So, why won’t they turn when the machine is turned on?
Some vaccums have a belt on the brushes. might need a new one if it does have the belt
Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would “heave” (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won’t turn. Any suggestio
Carpet brush won’t turn when vac on
Turns on when I turn the switch all the way off and then back on but when it shuts down it will not turn itself on automatically it will draw water out of the air but only if i turn it on manually.
Your question cannot be answered without more information..
.What kind of vac are you talking about to begin with?
I have a hoover steamvac model # F5915-900 and the brushes are not turning when I turn the selector from off to low or high. I’ve checked to make sure the brushes are locked in place and they turn manually with no resistance. What else can i do?
Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present?
It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long.
It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
Remove and clean the intake filter.
One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen.
Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.
I have a Kenmore Elegance Vacuum with Dirt Sensor, Model # 116.30750400C, Serial number M41901532. When vacuuming the carpet the power head will work for 3-6 mins then automatically shut off, power is still there and lights work but the power head motor turns off and the suction stops. I will turn it off and on, check the outlet, flick the on off buttons…nothing. I will turn it off for a couple minutes and it turns back on and runs like normal. I’ve check the bags, filters, cleaned the hos
