The robot stops with a "Cross Outside" (E2) message

Q1 Check the most common reasons that caused the robot to "Cross Outside".
  1. Was the perimeter wire installed in an area that is too sloppy?
  2. Did it happen under wet conditions?
  3. Is there a difference in height between the grass and the edge of the garden?
  4. Is the perimeter wire installed too close to the edge?
  5. The wire is not set at 45 degrees at the corner, or it is set at 45 degrees, but at a very short distance from the corner.


Are all of the issues mentioned above OK?
