Troubleshooting THE TIMER

Replace THE TIMER within 5yrs if it:

  • Short throws
  • Dumps feeder
  • Inoperable buttons
  • Bad screen
  • Timer is frozen
  • Red motor light stays on continuously

Normal conditions:

  • Solid battery blinking – this is the AA battery life; they are not needed for proper operation as they are only for saving time and settings when disconnected from 12v battery
  • Red motor light, this happens when the motor is operating
  • Timer flashes “FUSE”; the timer fuse needs to be replaced. If this happens again, then the motor needs to possibly be replaced, but it could be a harness or wire frays as well.

Removing scheduled time on Timer:

  • Take throw time duration all the way through 30 to 0 seconds

Battery needs replacing or a wall charge:  To see actual battery life, make sure the solar panel is not connected to battery or you will see full voltage during the daylight.

  • Battery voltage is under 9v
  • Timer vibrates or buzzes instead of throwing
  • Timer is showing in 6v while connected to 12v battery
  • Timer vibrates and motor light comes on with no motor operation
  • Graduated battery indicator (12v battery) at 2 or less bars
  • Slow or no motor operation with a proven motor
