How do you replace the red door that covers the filter?
the latch on the red door broke so Roomba sent another for it was under warranty but the engineers need to make an upgrade for this such a good product otherwise wwhat I did was use Cajun engineering and used a large rubberband around the whole canister works great
Mine broke after six weeks, they sent the door as my machine is under warranty, no instructions for replacing the thing.
After two months, the latch cracked on the 960 dust filter door. Given the 12 month warranty period, they are sending me a new replacement part. Hope it lasts much longer. Apparently a new door costs in the order of $25.
Same thing happened on my 800 series, broke within six weeks. Now I can’t see how to replace the thing
I know I’m responding to somewhat of an aged post but I just experienced the same issue and received a free replacement door from iRobot. I remove the four screws from the top of the bin which holds down the cover which the filter door is attached to. There are is a scissors type spring attachment that attaches to the cover, the two posts holding this one can simply push through giving you easy access to the underside to add pressure to the cover arms for removal. Assemble the bin cover in reverse order.
The even simpler way without removing the bin cover is to simply break the arms off from the red filter door letting them fall through in to the dust bin then attach the red door by pushing the new door arms through the slots.
Helpful. I replaced mine already but this should help the next person!
Where can I order just the door?
don't order one. call them and demand a replacement for free. they have built a physical "latch" out of a non-bendable material. plastic!!! its not meant to bend even slightly over and over for that many times. it will always break, terrible design, should have been some other type of latch or material
On Roomba model 985, there are 5 screws but only 3 are visible. I have marked the remaining 2 in red on the attached picture. The two screws are under a sticker. I did not peal off the sticker but just poked through it with a phillips screwdriver.
Once you unscrew these two as well, the assembly lifts off. The scissor like mechanizm can be disconnected by pushing the scissor parts out of the holes they are in.
Lastly, the red trap door, it also removes by compressing little knobs on the hinges, if you break it, do not fret, the latch of the door is broken already, as this is why you are reading this post, right? :)
