Mint getting stuck in office chair - it doesn't back up

Postby mig_akira » July 9th, 2011, 5:23 pm

Hello everyone!

My mint has just arrived, and so far I'm very pleased with it. It's a fine addition to my Roomba, mopping after the Roomba cleans the floor.

But I noticed one problem, my Mint has a tendency to get stuck in a few places, like under my office chair. The cube is on, and there was 1 solid blue light on the mint.

The problem is that it only tries to go forward. It tried to get out for about 3 minutes before I myself freed it. Is this normal behaviour, or it normally would have gotten out of the place it was stuck? I took a photo to show the way it was.

Also, another doubt, does the mint in mop mode cleans the edges of the walls too, or only on swipe mode?

Thanks!

Well I didn't want to keep moving the chair everytime I would run the Mint, so I found a walkaround:

Now I just gotta find a way to keep the cat from trying to pull off Mint's cloth! =)

I would, but it's an apartment cat! They'll just have to learn to get along! (which they don't, my Mint is still being bullied by the cat, lol)
