Bumper button not working, simple fix video

Postby HawtDogFlvrWtr » June 6th, 2017, 5:38 pm

I noticed today that my botvac 80 wasn't avoiding obstacles the way it used to. After pulling it apart and testing the switch, i noticed that one direction on the switch was toast. I recorded a video on how I tested it and modified it to get it working again. Obviously this is a well used part when it's running, so YMMV.

Relevant and timely. On my Botvac 80, the obstacle avoidance issue has just begun to appear. Not sure whether I'll try taking the unit apart, but it's good to know it may be easy to fix.
