- TurboMow mode has been activated. - It is recommended to raise mowing height before
starting the mower in TurboMow mode. Refer to sections
3.1 and 4.3.7 in the User Manual.
Recharge battery - The maximum operating time has been reached (displayed in non-Base Station zone).

- Mower is searching for the Base Station but the battery voltage is too low to continue the searching process.
- Connect the charger to the mower or place it in the Base
Station for charging.

- Drive the mower manually using the remote control or carry it by hand for charging in the Base Station.
Start elsewhere - Drive wheel motors have been working under a severe load during automatic or manual operation. - Check to insure the mower is not stuck, allowing the drive wheels to slip.

- Check the ground around the mower for holes or indentations. Fill with dirt and level off.

- The mower will not skip to the next Sub-Zone (if there are any), if it fails to reach the current one.
- Try to start manual mowing (refer to section 4.5 – Manual Operation). Check if something disturbs mower’s driving backwards and/or bypassing the Base Station. Confirm the mower drives along the perimeter
wire and doesn’t fall off the lawn’s edge, when it departs from the Base Station.

- Confirm that the mower is able to follow the perimeter wire along the narrow pass until it reaches the Sub- Zone. Refer to section 2.2.2 for instructions on how to set a narrow pass properly.
