It is possible that the motor is programmed to rotate more than it is physically able.  When it hits the floor it enters a stall state and never completes the program block so it never progresses.  Try holding the robot off the table.  If it works while elevated, all you need to do is reduce the number of rotations.

Sounds like a leverage issue. It can swing it one way but can't get enough torque to lift it back up. Using gears can help increase your torque.

here's a Vex page on the topic.

My team is having a hard time making the robot move once the arm is down.  Can anyone help us?

Thanks,
