Eufy RoboVac 11+ reviews

Introduction

Eufy RoboVac 11+ is a refresh from the RoboVac 11 unit, by adding power boost technology for a deeper cleaning when you need more suction for dirty areas.

This robot is one of the best low budget robot vacuum cleaners in 2018 at the entry level, even it does not have fancy features like the premium units.

The unit has a circular shape with the low profile and large dust bin, long run time up to 100 minutes per charge and equipped with sensors for detecting the debris and prevent the unit to fall off.

This unit is a low price model which is recommended for those who are looking for a robot vacuum for cleaning tight spaces when they can spend for doing other home chores.

The downside of Eufy RoboVac 11+ is that it does not have wifi feature, therefore you can’t control the unit while you are not at home. This robot vac has a 12-month warranty from Eufy. Let’s discuss the technologies and benefits of Eufy RoboVac 11+.

Pros and cons of Eufy RoboVac 11+

Pros

this is a budget robot vacuum cleaner that works. The unit is easy to use and control via a remote, with a very long run time and big dust bin for large footage cleaning. It also has HEPA filter which is a great feature. The eufy RoboVac 11+ has boost power mode which is a plus point compared to the older eufy RoboVac 11.

Cons

It is a low price unit, therefore, there are still some limitations in terms of convenience and performance on some floor types. It does not have the wifi connection and virtual wall for optimization of cleaning routine. Besides, the model works well on bright floor surfaces more than dark surfaces (this is because of the sensors performance) therefore it is not a recommended unit if you have dark floors at home.

Recommendation of Eufy RoboVac 11+

eufy RoboVac 11+ is a good robot vacuum cleaner at a low budget. If you are looking for an entry-level unit then eufy RoboVac 11+ might be a good candidate.

Against for users who are not always at home and dark floor types. If you are away from home mostly, check for the robotic vacuum cleaners with wifi connection such as ILIFE A4 or Roomba 690 models.

FAQs and troubleshooting of Eufy RoboVac 11+

How well dose it clean corners
Answer: I’ve not noticed any kind of dust/dirt build up in the corners. The reality of ALL robot vacuums is that they have two brushes, one at each ‘front corner’. The brushes spin so no part is square. I’m confident that if I got down on my knees and swiped the corner that some dust, etc. would come up.

Question: How tall is this unit?
Answer: 3.1 inches

Question: Does Eufy know When it is Without a bin or does it still vacuum without it?
Answer: Unfortunately he has no idea. It just keeps vacuuming along without it.

Question: roller brush not working?
Answer: I don’t know about roller brush not working. All I know is whatever is or is not working, it is doing a great job for me so far.

Question: I’ve tried setting the schedule exactly how the manual says but it never works. I even get the beep like I’m supposed too. Why won’t it start?
Answer: Did not have that problem. I would email seller.

Question: Our Eufy makes very short runs (1-2 ft) then turns and goes another 1-2 ft. This keeps repeating. Any ideas why?
Answer: The wheels are dirty with hair usually. I clean it’s thoroughly. Mine kept saying Tap Bumper Its Dirty….I blew it or with an Air hose and works like new again. Check the wheels, rollers, every thing… there is resistance somewhere

Answer: Mine runs for two hours and I think the area it cleans is over 800 square feet.

Answer: both are 3.1”

Question: I have concert itched floors., so the surface isn’t smooth. Will this be a problem?
Answer: depending on how deep the etching is, your brushes may wear out faster than normal. but if they are simple etched and don’t have ridges that stick up, I think it should work ok. Eufy provides some extra brushes in the box and you can order extras separately.

Question: Can it clean under the lip of counters
Answer: Yes

Question: does the docking station require a certain amount of free space around it?

Answer: I have some low nap carpet and it gets everything I see on top picked up. We have no rugs and mostly hardwoods. It does a fantastic job

Question: Am i missing what makes this so great?
Answer:  What makes it so great for me is that it cleans the floor quite nicely without me having to push it around. We have pets and kids and a garden, lots dust, dirt, and hair and fur. It tools around and gets most of it. I love it!

Question: how high must furniture be off floor to clean under
Answer: about 3.5″ high and clears 4.5″ furniture off the floor.

Answer: push button that you squeeze and pull at the same time its a snap piece of cake !!! It’s located at the top by opposite of the blue light.

Answer: It blinks while charging then goes off when fully charged. When you turn it on the blue light comes back on

Question: i have a split foyer home with a railing that goes around the steps. the railing is about 5″ from the floor. will this fall over the ledge

Question: Could you check if it’s power supply is 120v input, or 120-220v? Thanks!
Answer: Not sure…….ask vendor………but I think its both….

Ours has started bumping things really loudly. Waking us up during auto clean in the night. It’s a month old and it used to be more quiet. Any idea?
Answer: Ours sometimes makes a lot of noise when it bumps into things, but it always seems to be a function of what it bumps into, like a not completely opened or closed door.

Question: Does this unit have a mobile app that you can use to control the vacuum from anywhere?
Answer: not that i’m aware of. it just goes about in random or set patterns and does it’s thing. and when it get tired he goes home to rest.

Question: How does the eufy do with long human hair? I’ve killed other vacs that had rollers, getting caught with long hair.

Question: Would you buy the extended warranty on this machine?
Answer: No. As a rule I don’t purchase extended warranties.

Answer: 4 inches. It goes under my chairs and TV console table, but not my couch. However, my couches are very low.

Question: Product description states it’s not suitable for “very dark-colored floors”. That’s rather subjective. How would I know if my floors are too dark?
Answer: Mine works on a dark tile floor, but it doesn’t like the black lines on my hallway runner rugs. It has sensors so it doesn’t drive off of an edge, so it thinks the stripes are an edge.

Question: what happens when it encounters high pile rugs?
Answer: Mine has gotten tangled in some shag rugs I have in the hallway. But it does pretty well on the rugs I have in my living room.

Question: what happens when it encounters high pile rugs
Answer: Sorry i only have wood or short pile carpet

Question: I’m seeing mixed results with a dark hardwood floor. Does it work on dark hardwood or doesn’t it?

Question: Is it good for cleaning a large banquet hall
Answer: Runs about 1 1/2 hours, not going to pick up big items or spills. I don’t think a large hall would be Eufy’s strong suit.

Question: Can this climb over thresholds, like transitions from hardwood to carpet?
Answer: yes

Question: How do I get it to go all the way to the walls? It stops before it reaches the baseboards.
Answer: Use the remote. There is a button that will have it go along the walls all around the room. Then you will have to use the auto button to have it go back out into the room

Question: will it detect my cat’s bowls of food & water, on the floor?
Answer: No. I pick my dogs water up while Eufy is working because it sloshed the water out when I left it on the floor.
Is there a manual with instructions mine came without a manual
Answer: no, buyer beware. iam returning mine after 2 months of flawless use. it just stopped working

Answer: I don’t know.

Question: Can you replace the battery?
Answer: I didn’t keep the Vac……..

Question: Had mine for two days and it bumps into everything, walls, sofas even my legs. Tried on different surfaces. Is this normal or do I have faulty one?
Answer: Mine does that some of the time, other times it seems to sense something in the way and changes direction. I haven’t figured out yet what makes the difference. Even when it bumps, it is never hard enough to do damage, either to furniture or to itself.

Question: How good is this vacuum with human (women) hair that are average size? Do the hair get stuck in the brush?
Answer: Yes it does but they give you a tool that makes it easy to get the hair out of the roller.

Question: I have heard it was not suitable for dark hardwood floors, but no explanation for this. Does anyone have experience using this with dark hardwood floo
Answer: I don’t agree with that. I have dark hardwoods and so does my mother. Why would the color of the floor matter? It keeps the floor clean.

Question: I have the regular 11+ and love it. Bought the 11+ power boost and hate it! It gets stuck everywhere and It seems clumsy anyone else!
Answer: My Box says EuFy 11. We have not had any issues with it grabbing curtains, eating socks, etc. It has a sensor that turns it when it approaches incompatible objects for the most part. yesterday it grabbed the cord for iron and shut itself down. Good to know as I would not want it to overheat and burn house down. … see more

Question: Will it work on dark cherry wood floors? There are color variations with each piece of wood. Is this a free return if it doesn’t work?
Answer: I do not work for the company. I am a consumer just like yourself. This little sweeping vacuum robot does an excellent job, on our wood floors, ceramic floors and laminate floors. I don’t think it would discriminate against the color of your floors.

Question: I have several Persian rugs with fringed edges. Will the machine get caught in the transition from the hardwood floors to the rugs?

Answer: I have only one fringed rug and I have to roll up the edges of the rug so they don’t become tangled when the vacuum sweeps over. Hope this helps

Question: How hard would it be to mount blades on this device and use it to cut hair?
Answer: Should be fairly simple. This device has two spinning rotaters that currently have sweeper devices on them. You could attach blades to both for optimal and fast hair cuts. However, the distance between the two rotaters might be too far apart for the average-sized head. You could optimize this distance by using it to cu… see more

Question: When it runs out of battery while working does it continue where it left off after the battery is fully charged again?
Answer: I have never had it die before it finished cleaning, or I’ve stopped it on my own for some reason (such as leaving home, I don’t run it if I’m not home).
