Shark Robot Dust Cup

How to Clean a Shark Robot Dust Cup

If you have a Shark robot, you’re probably already aware that it has a dust cup that holds a lot of dirt. This is a great feature, but it’s also something that you need to take care of regularly. In order to ensure that your robot stays clean, you should be careful to keep it free of debris and to replace the filter at least once a month.

If your vacuum cleaner has a self-emptying base, you can remove the dust cup and empty it into a trash bin. Typically, you can just twist the dust cup back into the base, but in some cases you will need to carefully remove the filter and brush roll to make room. Aside from removing the dust cup, you’ll need to wipe down the wheels on the front of the robot. The caster wheel should be cleaned inside the wheel housing as well as the drive wheels.

You can use a dry microfiber cloth to wipe down the brush bar on your robot. For an even deeper clean, you can clean the pre-motor filter. While this task is easy enough to do yourself, you should still consider taking it to a professional.

The shark robot’s newest model, the R101AEW, has a more sophisticated design than other models. Instead of using a standard caster wheel, the robot has two brush rollers. These brushes spin, removing wrapped hair as they spin. They are a good fit for negotiating tight spaces, like the sides of a chair.

Another nifty feature on the Shark IQ is its mapping. It can generate a map of one level of your home. Each time it runs, it updates the map. As it maps, it can detect obstacles and divide up a room into two no-go areas. That way, the bot won’t clean the floor of an entire room unless you tell it to. However, if you have an especially high debris load, you might want to leave this feature off.

One of the most notable features of the Shark IQ Robot XL Vacuum R101AEW is its connectivity. It connects to your smartphone and can also be used with Alexa. We tested the app and found it to work reliably for remote control, though we weren’t quite as impressed with the actual navigation. Nonetheless, it was easy to set up and connect.

Another nifty feature is the robot’s self-emptying base. This is less obtrusive than the clean base of the Roomba i7, and doesn’t require a swivel motion to empty the dust cup. When it’s finished cleaning, it will automatically evacuate the contents of its dust cup into the bin, and then return to the dock to continue cleaning.

The Shark IQ has a number of sensors on the robot. Two of them are located on the sides of the front. Additionally, there are several others on the bot.

While the Shark IQ Robot XL Vacuum’s navigation isn’t as impressive as other vacuums, it’s still very good. Like many other vacuums, it has spot cleaning mode, but you can only use that feature when the vacuum’s battery is low.
