2 Ways to Reset Roomba i7 (Manually and via Home-App)

If your Roomba i7 isn’t working the way it should, you may need to reset it. This can help if it is having trouble connecting to your home’s Wi-Fi, it’s not picking up as much dirt as it should, or it’s behaving erratically.

Resetting your Roomba i7 is a pretty simple process, and it can often help clear up any minor issues that your Roomba may have. In this article, I will explain the best and easy two ways to reset your Roomba i7. Keep reading…

How to reset Roomba i7

Please remember that a reboot (soft reset) and a factory reset are entirely different. A reboot will only restart the Roomba and will not affect any data in the cloud or the app. On the other hand, a factory reset will reset the Roomba to factory settings (as if it were a brand-new Roomba), erasing all of your data from the app and cloud.

Follow the below steps to reset your Roomba i7 and get it back up and running in no time.

1. Reset your Roomba i7 manually

As I mentioned, you can reset your Roomba i7 in two ways. One is by pressing the Home and Spot button, and the other is from the iRobot Home App.

Let’s say you want to manually reset your iRobot Roomba i7 series by pressing the button, then follow the steps below.

    • For 20 seconds, press and hold the CLEAN, SPOT CLEAN, and HOME buttons.Press home and spot button to reset roomba i7
    • Hold them until the White Ring Light spins around the CLEAN button.White Ring Light
    • Let the button go and wait some time. The Roomba is now resetting itself, which might take up to 1.5 minutes.
  • Press the CLEAN on/off button once again to resume use.

If your Roomba i7 won’t power on, it means that the Roomba is stuck in a loop trying to save a smart map that did not exist. A restart will fix this issue. If restarting doesn’t fix the problem, try replacing the battery.

2. Factory Reset the Roomba i7 using Home-App

The iRobot Roomba i7 model has excellent features like resetting the iRobot via the Home App. It is a great feature if you want to reset your Roomba to its factory settings by just giving a single command from your mobile phone. Follow the below steps to do it correctly!

  • Open the Home App.
  • Go to the “Settings” section.
  • Select “Factory Reset” from the drop-down menu and press OK
  • After then, Roomba will reboot and reset itself.

Remember that if you perform a factory reset, your Roomba will need to be reconfigured and remapped as if it were a brand-new robot.
