Motor stuck in a given direction

This is a soft alarm. However, the alarm will be accompanied by a robot stuck alarm.


No movement detected for a couple of seconds while the target position has not been reached yet, i.e. the motor has started moving but then stopped before reaching the desired position. The alarm indicates both which motor that has failed and in which direction.


  • Check that the motor is working
  • Check that the robot has not run into anything
  • Check hose reel and hose spreader if wheels are stuck due to the hose
  • Check zero position sensors for tower, telescope, arm and nozzle
