To remove the dust bin, simply push the tab at the side of the bin. Pushing the tab will pop the dust bin out, and it can be easily removed.

You can remove the filter by pulling it straight out from the dust bin. Hold on to the dust bin one hand, and grab the edges of the filter with your other.

Clean the old Roomba i7 filter.

You don't need to replace the filter every time it gets dirty. In fact, you'll want to clean the filter every week or so. At this point, you can clean the filter if you choose. To begin, tap the filter against the side of your garbage can to shake loose the dirt and debris. If you'd like, you can also spray the filter with compressed air or vacuum it to remove more of the dust.

Place new Roomba i7 filter

Push the new (or cleaned) filter back in to the dust bin securely.

Put the Roomba i7 dust bin back in place

To put the dust bin back in place, start by place the hook into the opening. If the hook is in place properly, it acts as a hinge. Then, you can push the other side of the dust bin and lock it into place.

With the dust bin back in place, your Roomba i7 is ready for action! Next, learn how to unclog the Roomba i7 Clean Base.
