If you’re wondering what Roomba robot vacuum you have, how old it is, or its serial number, then we can help.
To know what Roomba robot vacuum you have, you need to have the unit in front of you, and you need to remove the dustbin.
Follow the steps below to help you figure out what Roomba model you have.
How To Figure Out What Roomba Model You Have
To figure out what Roomba robot vacuum you have requires to you see the serial number of the robot vacuum.
The serial number is located under the dustbin which must be removed. Follow these steps below to locate your serial number.
1. Remove Dustbin
Locate the release button on your Roomba to remove the dustbin.
2. Flip Roomba Over With Dustbin Removed
With the dustbin removed, flip the Roomba over to get a view of the serial number.
3. View Serial Number
Once the Roomba is over and dustbin removed, you can see the serial number.
How To Determine Roomba Model
You can determine what Roomba you have by the serial number.
For example, my serial number starts with “JBN69002170919…”.
After the first 3 letters is my model number, which is 690. So, I have a Roomba 690.
How To Figure Out Roomba’s Birthday
The serial number of your Roomba also tells us it’s birthday.
Starting at the 6th digit and going 6 more digits over, we get the date code.
The date code goes: year – month – day (YYMMDD).
So, my date code is 170919, which is 2017 September the 19th. That lines up because I bought it in November 2017.
Now you can set a reminder in your calendar to celebrate your robot vacuum’s birthday! Which is more common than you think, especially since people name them too. They’re a part of the family, doing the job that not many want to do.
