With the increased convenience of robotic vacuums, resetting your robot vacuum may become necessary at some point in order to combat any minor issues encountered with the device. Resetting is a simple process that can help return your vacuum to its regular functioning, so you don’t have to compromise on the performance of your device. 

It’s important to note, though, that two types of resets are available for your robot vacuum; simple reset and factory reset. Despite their similarities, the difference between the two lies in their ability to preserve data and settings from previous uses – while a simple reboot or reset will let you keep everything, factory resets delete all stored info entirely. Today we will learn how to reset Roomba e5 for minor issues.

Reset your Roomba e5 manually

Resetting your Roomba e5 robot vacuum is easy and straightforward. To reset the robot, press and hold the Home and Spot Clean buttons for 10 seconds until all indicators turn off. After releasing the buttons, you’ll hear a tone that confirms you reset the robot successfully–listen for it! It’s important to note that if you use the scheduling feature with your Roomba, make sure to open up the iRobot HOME App after resetting to confirm that your robot’s schedule still remains intact.
