One of my Motors suddenly stopped working


#1

I recently bought the gopigo and it was working fine. Then I bought a few more accessories, such as the ultra-sonic and servo.

However, suddenly one of the motors has stopped working and now the model only runs in one direction.

Can someone please help?

I’m sorry to hear that ! How annoying!

Would you mind trying a little test? Can you connect the defective motor to the connections of the working motor, and vice versa? This will help tell us where the problem is.
Thanks, and I’m sorry your Gopigo is running on one leg.

Yes, I have tried that.

The working motor works fine as either a left or right wheel when executing the sample Python code.

I think it may be a fault with the motor. I’ve contact the company I bought it from and inquired about a replacement.

Sounds like the right thing to do!
