i9 stuck in an endless lopp when returning to base

melstigmelstig Member

My i9 running 40.18 gets stuck in different loops while returning to base station. It has been like this in most releases but this time it was rather funny. It was just going back and fourth and I had to carry it to the base in the opposit side of the house.

It often takes very long time to return, even when it succeds.

See video from Google Photos below.

Is there any debug-files you need one collect when one finds weak spots for the device/fw and what other information do you want as default?

    Purei 9 in my home may take similar actions.

    It happens when I don't use custom cleaning.

    Purei9 is lost.

    I have the same experience. It just goes round and round in circles until the battery dies

    Yep, I have also seen this, with the latest release. Back and forth until I carried it to the base (which where only one meter away), in sight, but on the otherside of a threshold.

    Due to COVID-19 induced stretches of home office I have observed my robot (Pure i91-5BSM 41.18) go over the same patch of floor after a resumed cleaning over and over and over and over and (I think you're getting my gist) :D
    I don't know, what's gotten into that thing - if it were a horse suffering from such apparent terminal illness, I'd certainly had shot it at this point to put it out of its misery. As it is only a non-living piece of machinery costing several hundred bucks (and I don't own a gun) I gave it the digital "coup de grace" and reset it.
    Electrolux: What have you done with 4.18?!? Can I pretty please have 4.17 back?

    Purei9 stays still for almost a minute, as if pondering.

    He moves back and forth in the same range as possessed.

    He is more likely to hit the legs of chairs and tables than it used to be.

    He goes right and left even though it rides on a rug about 1 cm thick.

    I feel that Purei9 is nervous in the place that I cleared without difficulty before.
