Robot unable to pick bin from port

Learn what to do if the robot encounters difficulties when attempting to pick up the bin from the port.

Several factors, such as overfilling, improper packing, misplacement, or obstacles covering the bin's pick-up holes, can prevent the robot from picking a bin up from the port.  

Try these steps to solve the issue

Step 1

To ensure safety, make sure that the red error light above the "Retry" button is lit. It is safe to handle the bin while the error light is on, as the port will not move until the Retry button is pressed.
