wheels

After we connected our motor and wheels correctly and put it on the floor, one of our wheels wouldn’t work. HOW do we fix it!!! :mad: :confused:

What do you mean ‘won’t work’? Is it not spinning? Is it not touching the ground? Is the motor moving?

what exactly was the problem? was motor not turning? or was the wheel not gripping the ground?

what is your drive setup? are you using the supplied gearboxes from FIRST? check and see if the motors are turning. If they arent, then there is somethign wrong inside the motor if they are, follow the pieces until you see where it doesnt turn any more and that is probably the problem.

If the motor is not turning, see if it’s moving at all when the proper controls are activated (e.g. joystick). If it jerks/moves a tiny bit then stops, it could be a gearing/chain/belt problem. If it’s not moving at all, check the speed controller, if it’s LED is blinking, it’s not getting a signal from the robot controller. More details would help, so we know what’s connected, what’s working, what’s not working, then we can help you troubleshoot more.

If it’s not moving at all, check the speed controller, if it’s LED is blinking, it’s not getting a signal from the robot controller.

Make sure there is power getting to the motor also.
