Roomba j9+ robot vacuum with P.O.O.P. guarantee avoiding pet waste

Under the Microscope: Evaluating the Product’s Pluses and Minuses

The Roomba J9+ appears to be a device that has garnered a mix of praise and criticism from users. Among its positive aspects, customers appreciate the improved cleaning performance, especially when compared to previous models like the S7+. One user mentioned, “Cleans much better than the S7+ it replaced, and runs longer on a charge.” The J9+ also features interchangeable parts with older models, which is a convenient aspect for those who are upgrading from a previous Roomba.

Users have noted the J9+’s proficiency in navigating around the house, with its mapping capabilities being highlighted as efficient. For instance, one user shared, “This thing is pretty accurate and does a great job. Mapping takes forever, and it can get pretty loud but [it’s a] great machine.” The object avoidance feature has also been commended, with a customer noting that it provides pictures of what it avoided, which they found to be a neat addition. Furthermore, the robot vacuum’s ability to pick up pet hair has been met with approval, a feature that is crucial for pet owners. The vacuum’s ease of setup has been praised as well, as one user happily stated, “MO (yes, I named it) was super easy to set up.”

For those concerned about battery life and suction power, the J9+ has received positive remarks. One review noted that it has more suction and a longer battery life compared to the J7, though this does come with a caveat regarding increased noise levels. Additionally, the ability of the Roomba J9+ to integrate with home networks, after initial setup issues, has been reported to work flawlessly.

Despite the aforementioned strengths, the Roomba J9+ has not been without its problems. One of the more serious complaints includes a unit that was “Dead on arrival – $600 piece of garbage,” according to a disappointed customer who faced battery issues from the get-go. There have also been reports of difficulties during the initial setup process, particularly with app connectivity. A user expressed frustration, “Both the J7 and J9 wouldn’t connect to my Google Pixel 7 pro via Bluetooth.” Additionally, customer service has been cited as unhelpful in resolving these issues.

Some users have encountered problems with the Roomba’s ability to clean certain types of debris effectively. One review stated, “The Suction power seems to be fine, but the fact that the brush/rollers used are rather useless at picking up dust, dirt, and hair.” Furthermore, issues with emptying the bin, particularly with cat litter, have been a source of inconvenience for users, requiring manual intervention.

Concerns have also been raised about the robot’s durability and intelligence. Some customers have reported that the device is prone to getting stuck and has difficulty completing a full cleaning cycle without encountering errors, such as “Error 2 – Brushes Need Cleaning error on Carpet.” Lastly, there have been remarks about the product feeling unfinished, with one user expressing regret, “I do not want to beta test your unfinished product.” This sentiment echoes the frustrations of several customers who expected more from the high-end robot vacuum.

The most helpful positive feedback Reviewed in the United States on November 11, 2023 by J. Edmondson, and is titled “A succesor to my S9”

I’ve had this just for a day, but I know this robot is going to surpass my S9+. I have a J6+ in my office and it’s NEVER gotten stuck in 6 months of ownership. Its dodged cords, dog toys and blankets that have fallen on the floor. This robot has been doing the same, the suction is like my S9, however the side brush doesn’t get crushed like the S9 did on carpet. Mapping my house used to take 3 hours on the S9, with this robot it did it in half that. The method for mapping has changed and it speeds it up. The map is accurate, LIDAR wasn’t needed. It picks up all my dog hair and sand from when I visit the beach. I bought it for $599 early black friday deal Nov 2023.

I got this to replace my Roomba I have had for years It still works great but it is very loud and has no obstacle detection at all I just got a puppy so that is important to me After doing some research I decided to go for the top of the line J Right off the bat it had problems It leaves the base and stops for over a minute then starts again for a while then wants the bin emptied Its brand new and has never run nothing is in the bin Once I got it to run for a while after several time of restarting it from the base it started to map my house I went into a few rooms fine most it did about half then left never to return Nothing I could figure out would make it map or even try to enter the unmapped part of my house I googled this problem and found lots of people complaining about the same thing with the J The only answer was keep running it and hope it smartens up or wait for a update at some point I’m not paying what I paid for this

Question Bank: Providing the Answers You Seek

How does the self-emptying feature work, and how often do I need to change the bag?

The self-emptying feature is designed to allow the vacuum to automatically transfer the collected debris into the Clean Base® Automatic Dirt Disposal unit after each cleaning session. This process ensures you don’t have to manually empty the robot vacuum’s bin after each use. The bag inside the Clean Base® can hold up to 60 days’ worth of dirt and debris, depending on usage and household conditions. When full, the bag can be easily removed, disposed of, and replaced with a new one.

Can this robot vacuum navigate and clean multiple floors in a home?

Yes, this robot vacuum is capable of Smart Mapping, which allows it to learn, map, and adapt to your home’s floor plan. However, it cannot physically move itself up or down stairs. If you have multiple floors, you’ll need to manually place the robot on each floor you want it to clean. It will then create a separate smart map for each floor, allowing for customized cleaning jobs.

Is the vacuum compatible with voice assistants, and how can I integrate it into my smart home?

Yes, the vacuum is compatible with voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa. You can integrate it into your smart home by connecting it to your Wi-Fi network and linking it to your voice assistant device through the corresponding app. Once linked, you can start, stop, or schedule cleaning sessions with simple voice commands.

What is the P.O.O.P. guarantee, and how does it work?

The P.O.O.P. (Pet Owner Official Promise) guarantee is a commitment from iRobot that this robot vacuum will avoid pet waste while cleaning. If the robot does encounter a pet-related accident and fails to avoid it, iRobot will replace the vacuum. This guarantee requires registration and is subject to certain terms and conditions that can be found on the iRobot website.

How does the vacuum deal with different types of flooring, like hardwood and carpet?

The vacuum is equipped with a feature that automatically adjusts its suction power when transitioning from one floor type to another. It delivers a stronger suction on carpets to lift trapped pet hair and debris, while on hardwood or tile floors, it adjusts to prevent scattering of debris and to ensure efficient pickup.

Can I set boundaries or no-go zones for the vacuum?

Yes, through Smart Mapping technology, you can set up virtual boundaries or no-go zones within the companion app. These zones tell the robot vacuum where it should not go, which is particularly useful for keeping it away from pet bowls, clutter, or areas with delicate items.

How long does the battery last, and what happens if the vacuum runs out of power during a cleaning session?

The vacuum has a battery life of up to 180 minutes on a single charge, which should be sufficient for most homes. If the battery runs low during a cleaning session, the vacuum will automatically return to its charging base to recharge. Once recharged, it can resume cleaning where it left off, ensuring the entire space is cleaned without manual intervention.

    You have better things to do than sweeping like me? Yeah, read this.

    This will clean your floors 90% of the time, everytime. This robot vacuum works fantastic. The app is easy to use and interface with and gives you lots of information. It maps your house very thoroughly and gives you information on how much dirt is in whatever location. This is like the terminator of robot vacuums. Yes of courses we all know you still have to do some slight cleaning by yourselves because the robot cannot get into tight corners and what not but I would say that it does a very thorough job. Now there are different settings on it like the suction, so it is noticeably quieter when you have it set the lower suction setting, but the higher suction setting actually vacuums better. But then at the same time sacrificing battery life. I prefer to use the higher setting because the robot will go back home and recharge and the cleaning once it’s charged and keep doing that until it’s finished with the entire floor of your house. This works fabulous especially if you have pets. This model is designed for that. So you can say “hasta la vista” to dirt. The dog is occasionally mildly amused by it, and the cat completely ignores it. I was kind of hoping the cat would ride around on it like a speeder on Endor, but he seems to consider it more of an irrelevant nuisance. I highly suggest this product and it works great. Very satisfied.

    DON’T Waste Your Money!!

    This is the biggest waste of money I’ve ever committed. We previously had the 860 and it became unreliable so we decided to upgrade. Big mistake! This new model is just as unreliable as the 6 yr old broke down model. The first month it worked great, even better than the previous model. After about a month, it no longer could complete a job without getting stuck or just randomly stopping. Sometimes it doesn’t charge even though I wipe the sensors daily. It’s supposed to get smarter but it gets dumber by the day. My floors look terrible everyday because this paper weight won’t do its job. If I want my floors clean I have to run another vac to get it done because this one is worthless! Changing rollers and brushes and cleaning this unit doesn’t help. I’m done with iRobot.

    Good, but Not Great

    This junk machine wouldn’t begin to learn the shape of my house’s rooms. It also wouldn’t vacuum up much either. It rolled over a piece of kleenex & left it rolled up, not sucked up! It’s the dumbest machine possible! A total waste of your time & money.

    Not great with pet hair

    I have a j9+ it’s a nice vacuum. I also have a golden retriever. My home has a mixture of hardwood and carpet floors. The pet hair on the carpet will get rolled into little wads that I have to take my regular vacuum to clean up. Not sure if it’s an issue with the rollers not being rugged enough or not enough suction. Oftentimes when cleaning the bathroom when it encounters the shower rug, it gets labeled as a cliff and shuts down until rescued. The app is sometimes clunky and hard to use. But in the end it will eventually not throw an error and allow you to operate the vacuum. It’s not the best manual vacuum replacement, but I would recommend this vacuum to people. It dies a good job overall.

    Not as good as my old 900 series.

    The suction sucks. Well actually it doesn’t suck worth a hoot, even on high. It wanders all over with no rhyme nor reason. I think that camera system is the pits. Both my kids have the i7+ and lovem. Probably the much better buy at this juncture. There no handle to pick it up when it gets lost either. Has a great battery life though. But it has to because I have to run it two or three times over the same room to clean everywhere.

    Romba J9

    Overall I am pleased with the vacuum. It cleans better than my previous 2 vacuums. It takes a bit longer than previous ones but that is not so important. Sometimes I wonder why it is moving as it does seems strange but it gets the job done. My only complaint at this early stage is the cost of the filter within the robot itself. That needs to be kept clean or strange things happen. I wish this filter was reuseable like on my previous vacuums. I have a lot of fine dust in the winter because of my wood burning fireplace which needs to be cleaned daily in the winter and this creates fine dust which fills the robot vacuum filter to the point that I find it best to use the main house vacuum to clean this filter daily. I think this will not be such an issue only warmer weather comes.

    Too loud. Not great with excessive pet hair.

    I upgraded my roomba 960 which I loved. The J9 dust bin broke on the 2nd run. The self emptying feature caused cat hair to get stuck sticking out of the bottom of the dust bin door. When it backed up it caught on the rug and snapped off. If you have excessive pet hair I’d recommend vacuuming normally first then running roomba every other day or so to keep up otherwise it doesn’t empty properly. Also the self emptying feature is loud. I clocked it in at 87 decibels! I tried putting it between my couch and a wall to dampen the sound. It has trouble finding the base sometimes but still runs without issues about 80% of the time and it has helped with the sound.

    Great vacuum, software works, needs laser or something to make it better in the dark

    This is my first iRobot vac after living with a very old “dumb” robot vac for the longest. I wanted a great vac and didn’t care about mopping, so this seemed like the obvious choice. It really does a nice job and I don’t have to clean my wife’s hair out after every pass. My only wish is that it did a better job in the dark (including low light). It sometimes (not too often) gets stuck on things when it’s dark (or low light) that it would otherwise avoid if more light was present. iRobot left the laser off this version, which is a shame. I think it’d be much better with it. Still tho, I like it and I’m keeping it.

    What you should know

    This was a replacement for an eight-year-old ROOMBA which I would not have replaced because it was working so well, except that our dog had a liquid poop on the rug and the old Roomba vacuumed it up resulting in such a disgusting mess that I had to throw the whole thing out. This one claims that it will avoid dog droppings, but you should know that it only works if there’s enough light for the camera to sense and that means no setting it to vacuum it at night when you’re asleep unless you want to leave the lights on. On the other hand, it is very quiet, so I don’t mind it going on during the day. The app is very easy to use but it would be nice if the vacuum came with some minimal instructions on how to clean it and remove the filters. Instead, you have to go onto the Internet to figure that out, and it’s different enough from previous Rumbas that You have to learn the new system. All in all, it’s a nice device, and I’m satisfied with it.

    Useless

    I used this robot for a total of 15 times before it started throwing error codes saying loss of suction. After doing all of the things IRobot told me to on their customer service line it still did not work. They also told me it needed a new part but they did not have any parts in stock since this was such a new product for them. I will be returning and going with another brand. This is my second failed Roomba in a month.

    The app is supposed to be able to allow editing. It is extremely poor and doesn’t work very well.

    Great robot vacuum!

    I was a little hesitant to drop the money because I’ve never owned a robot vacuum but I am so glad I did. After it mapped my house and I made a few “very few” tweaks to the map, this little guy does an incredible job! Floors, carpet, door mats, everything! Has not got stuck and only issue was when it picked up a dryer sheet. Sent me a message there was an issue and showed me how to fix the problem! Afterwords it picked up where it left off and not another problem. The iRobot j9+ has been 100% worth the money and I just wish I had went with a robot vacuum years ago! Highly recommend this vacuum! And it is not loud at all, for a vacuum it’s pretty quiet actually, I can watch TV as it runs with no issue. When it empties its bin in the docking station it is loud for a second (think shop vac loud) but that’s only for a few seconds and expected.

    I am so glad I upgraded

    I had a much older version of the Roomba. I decided to upgrade because we have a lot of sawdust and dirt traffic into the house from the garage and the yard, and I wasn’t happy with how well it swept the floors. I am so happy I upgraded! This little guy does a much, much better job of sweeping the floors, goes back to home to empty his bin and then returns to finish his job, and can be scheduled to run whenever and whereever I want. I love it.

    Would Not Recommend

    Purchased this as a replacement to our almost 3 year old i6+ and that was a big mistake. It won’t run its scheduled jobs over 50% of the time, and when you try to start it manually in the app, you have to do so at least twice before it does the job you asked it to. We have tried remapping it, changing some settings, etc. to try and fix the problem and it doesn’t make any difference. We haven’t even had it for a month and it’s had more issues than our old roomba had in 3 years. If I could go back in time, I would never have purchased this vacuum.

    Very used vacuum!!

    Very dissapointed!!! This was a belated Christmas gift for my sister. It was supposed to be a brand new iRobot j9. What showed up was a very used and dirty vacuum! In the process of returning. Funny, I had to give one star to submit my review. Don’t think that star is deserved!

    not what you’d expect

    Ran it only 3 times and decided to return immediately. We did the mapping run and let it clean the house the day after the mapping. It took 4+ hours to clean a <1000 sqft area on day one. On the second run it got lost and couldn't find the base after running for couple of hours. I had to cancel the run and restart it which caused it to restart from the beginning. On the third run, it stopped in the middle of the room next to a furniture and the app said that the bumper got stuck and we had to tap it to put it back. I tried a few gentle taps but couldn't put the thing back in and immediately decided to return it in that state. I don't want to break the thing and get it to a non-returnable condition. It occasionally got stuck on the T trims between flooring and we had to tap it gently to get it going. This experience is nothing you would expect from a $1000+ product.

    Does not mop. Customer service is bad

    The brand new Roomba J9+ does not actually mop nor dispense any liquid. Have spent hours on the phone with Roomba customer support. Very little help. I’d be better off just returning it and getting my money back. Very disappointed after spending well over $1,000. Roomba, you can do better.

    Roomba will not honor warranty because not authorized seller.

    Purchased Nov. 4th just over 2 months ago. Roomba stopped working with error 26. Called Roomba and it was determined the Roomba needs to be returned for repair. However I found out Roomba will not replace or repair Roomba because I purchased the Roomba from an unauthorized seller.

    Could have been better – needs babysitting

    Good vaccum and mop concept – when you can make it work ! J9+ combo is a good idea but not as reliable as the previous Roomba. It got stuck initially beneath a sofa – 1st day – had to extract it. And then the base / dock stopped working multiple times – The app says it can’t connect – has a communication problem. Had to reboot the base / dock multiple times by unplugging. And then needed to reboot Roomba multiple times. And the battery does not charge properly – had to take it out and put Roomba j9+ back many times. In short – Needs lots of babysitting! This was not the case with my prior 2 Roomba (i7+ with base and Roomba 980) – both of them just do the job. I don’t have the heart to try out another brand yet. Am gonna return this J9+ combo – I would wait for them to improve and have a more reliable combo version before purchasing again.

    Mapping works

    I had heard that the mapping for the Roomba wasn’t as precise as some of the others however, I am very pleased with the mapping. The only complaint is, it is hard to figure out where the no clean zones need to be on the map and therefore it does get stuck under some of the furniture. Overall very pleased.

    Would be great if it worked and didn’t destroy my rugs.

    I was excited for this high-end purchase. I live in less than 2000 sq feet of space, all on one level, with 3 large area rugs in 3 different rooms, the rest hardwood flooring. She worked great for the first few times, then started leaving balls of dirt everywhere she went. She also seriously damaged one of my area rugs. The last time I ran her, changed the filter, cleaned her up and she didn’t vacuum up anything. The floors were dirtier when she finished and I had to break out the vacuum and do it myself. I would like to return, but it is past the 30 day return feature. I do not recommend buying this product. I also paid the $900 full price and not the price it is listed at now. Very disappointed.

    Makes life with dogs so much easier!

    This has been a great addition to our house. We can run it in the bedroom in the morning as we are getting ready, and then the rest of the house in the afternoon when we get home from work. It has picked the dog hair amazingly. As it travels and vacuums, it will take pictures of obstacles for you to review. You can set areas within a room that you do not want it to run and it will skip those areas.

    Stopped working one month in

    I absolutely loved the roomba, it mapped my house, cleaned where I asked it to, emptied itself, until… it stopped working. One month in, it claimed there is something in its path when there wasn’t anything close to it. I tried to fix it, move things around, move its base, nothing worked. I called customer support, they couldn’t help and asked that I send it in for repair. Since it was still within the return period, customer support suggested that I return it and get a new one instead of repairing it. I will buy another one and give it another try, but bummed that this happened so quickly! My last roomba from 10+ years ago still works perfectly.

    A Necessary Item

    So I bought the 7 series towards the beginning of the year from QVC. I had 30 days to return it. I’s just me and I couldn’t justify spending that much for a vacuum and so send it back. Since then, I’ve vacuumed but no where like the 7 series did. So, I bought this model. It is smarter than my previous one and it does a super job. Now after being without one for a little while, my purchase is definitely justified. The bronze color is really nice. I keep the suction on heavy, verses light or medium. After mapping, it cleaned my whole place, with 1/4 of battery left (heavy suction). And this one goes over any rug and does avoid cords. All in all, I’m glad it all happened the way it does. At the end, I got one of the latest versions. Wonderful purchase!!

    There is no technical support by phone or web.

    I called technical support and was connected with a person who could not speak English well and knew nothing about the product. I also sent an email about the issues weeks ago, and I never received a response. The unit will not pick up dog hair, dirt or clean well at all. It tries to eat the base it came with regularly. Erratic in all operations and takes 8 hours to clean whereas my old iRobot 600 series does it perfectly in less than 2. Which of course is the reason I purchased it. I have to clean the 600 daily.
