Check to see if you have "complete rotations before contining" (or something 
like that) selected bottom right of the control panel.  If you are trying to 
turn the arm say 180 degrees and it is getting stuck  and has only turned 
179 degrees, it will keep trying to turn and not finish the routine or go to 
the next step.     This can happen if the kids are starting the arm 1/2 up, 
for example.  De-select that option to keep this from happening.
