Why does my robot move in circles?

Check your unit's wheel and make sure there is no hair or debris stuck in it. Also use your hand to check if you can rotate the wheels freely. If your wheels are clean and can rotate freely, then you may need to buy a new wheel or send your unit in for repair.

If your unit moves clockwise, then your right wheel has issues. If your unit moves counter-clockwise, then your left wheel has issues. Check the video below for further guidance
