iRobot Roomba 900 Series Teardown

Got broken robot? We do! Some might say that’s the worst!
Let’s get this thing fixed. The beautiful part of iRobot/Roomba products (for now), it’s easy fixings! Unless the board is fried, the main housing is smashed to pieces or plastics are wasted. Even then, (this one in particular took a hard spill) parts are fairly easy to come by. The key is to source, clean, install and maintain what you do have. Most, if not all of this particular Roomba was fine, a good cleaning at the end of the repair was worth its weight in gold.
For those of you who don’t maintain electronics, robots etc. weekly, month or ‘NEVER’… friendly reminder, whatever the electronic might be, they do yeoman’s work if you care for the machine after every one or two uses. Also, the more you maintain, the less you throw out. Remember, No pain, no gain.
A few tools to call out below, overall again noting the comment above, these are fairly simple to fix…
- Philips Screwdriver (Rechargeable Drill* DeWalt 20v)
- iRobot – Brushes, collector rollers, caster wheel and filter
- Cleaner – Windex
- Cleaner – Sprayway
- Compressed Air
…for now. This is a huge plus for iRobot
