Occasional stops "I'm stuck" when it is not.

On of my robots has started to act up. It sometimes thinks it is stuck - when I lift it up, and put it down+restart, if works for a while (or whole cleaning). But sometimes it only works few seconds, when it seems to not want to move its left wheel properly, only very little. (like it senses it is stuck)

I suppose this might be a sensor problem, but which one?

I guess the other option is that there is some issue with the left drive wheel, but it does not look like it is.

    Is it always on a rug? Mine used to say that and it was an electrostatic issue.

    No, it is on hard floors. It is related to the left drive wheel, perhaps the lift sensor. But I recently took a broken pure i9 that I got from a friend apart, and I could not see any where the lift sensor is. Not that I looked very hard for it, but I did disassemble parts of both drive wheels, since there was a 10R resistor which needed re-soldering.

    Suppose I have to take my old unit apart and look more thoroughly.
