Motors not working correctly
March 29, 2013
I've been following the "First Robot" tutorial, and I'm very close to getting my first working version, but have got stuck right at the end. Everything, including the sensors and servo, have been working fine, but the motors are not. If I enter

The wheel turns in the other direction, but only really slowly. And the Motor Driver IC becomes very hot. If I try the same with 6 and 7, the other wheel doesn't turn at all, but the Motor Driver IC still gets very hot. If anyone can tell me from this description what exactly is going wrong with my robot, I'd be very grateful. Do any of my parts need replacing? Thanks!
