Hovo 700 can clean carpets that are thick up to 1/2". Hovo 700 can climb up 1/2" carpet. It will not go over rug with tassels since the roller brush will get stuck.
It will move backward under following situations: When it hit objects, detects stair or step; when it detects charging station or virtual blocker signal.
If it moves backward abnormally, check the following:
Tap the front bumper and see if it bounces back. If it does not bounce back, clean the bumper. If the bumper is stuck, the vacuum will think it hit something and move backwards.
Check to see if the cliff sensors are clean and are working properly (refer to "6. How do I check if my unit's ground sensors are working?") If the sensors are blocked or dirty the vacuum will think it is near a cliff and move backwards.
Remove or turn off virtual blocker. When it detects charging station or virtual blocker signal, it will move backwards.
There should be no object between main unit moving path and charging station in order for unit to find charging station and dock.
Check your unit's wheel and make sure there is no hair or debris stuck in it. Also use your hand to check if you can rotate the wheels freely. If your wheels are clean and can rotate freely, then you may need to buy a new wheel or send your unit in for repair.
If your unit moves clockwise, then your right wheel has issues. If your unit moves counter-clockwise, then your left wheel has issues. Check the video below for further guidance
This is a sign that the battery is old. If you have used your robot vacuum cleaner for more than a year, then you should replace the battery with a new one. You can check if you need to replace the battery by checking its voltage. (Refer to "8. How do I Check my unit's battery voltage?")
