Why is it important to know which model of Roomba you have?
iRobot has released several Roomba series. If you're having trouble with your Roomba robot vacuum, it's important to know which model you have. For specific problems, the solution depends on the model you have. For example, if we look at resetting an iRobot Roomba, this is very different with a Roomba J7 than with a Roomba 900.
In addition, it is also important to know the model number when you are going to buy new accessories. You should think of new filters and side brushes.
