Scooba 230 won't move from the spot

It's almost new. Water pump and vacuum impeller are working fine but it won't move from the spot. What could be wrong?

Clean tank empty sensor is best guess

I can't imagine both wheel drives failing at the same time

Don't forget, you can also run the Built in tests, only issue is you won't be able to monitor the output results.

Try using some distilled white vinegar mixed with water and 1/2 fill the clean bladder. Then shake very well. The shaking and vinegar may clean the liquid sensor in the clean tank. To test just press the Clean button after the shaking. If the 230 starts moving then you have resolved the issue if it was the clean tank sensor.

Not sure if this helps but on my 230s, the rubber tube in the peri-pump gets stuck shut and the unit fails to operate. I have to take out the tube and roll it between my fingers to get it working again.
Sincerely,
