More Troubleshooting Tips
- Make sure you are using a good 6-Volt / 5-Amp battery, such as Energizer or Moultrie batteries. Please be aware that most commercial 6-Volt batteries have less than 5 Amps and can cause issues with your power.
- The Wildlife Directional Feeder uses a 12V / 7AH Battery and its timer needs to be switched to 12V
- If the battery is rechargeable, make sure the battery is a 6-Volt / 5-Amp battery and is fully charged and working properly.
- 12V / 7AH for the Wildlife Directional Feeder
- Check your battery. Just because it is new does not mean that it is a good battery. Always fully charge a new re-chargeable battery before you use it as the charge can sometime dissipate overtime in storage. Always check charge on a non-rechargeable battery before using it.
- It is possible to get a defective battery or batteries can develop a bad cell over time.
- Attempt a reset by pressing and holding the reset button for 10 sec located on the backside of your timer (It is located on the front side of your timer if you have the option to program days into your timer)
- If using a solar panel, ensure that the battery is connected to the feeder and charged before you plug in or clip on the solar unit.
- Ensure the spin plate is securely on the shaft and you are using the proper dry feed.
- Cold weather will impact your batteries and can cause them to lose power or freeze.
