More Troubleshooting Tips
- Make sure you are using a good 6-Volt / 5-Amp Battery, such as Energizer, or Moultrie batteries. Pay particular attention to the amperage. Many commercial batteries produce less than 5-Amps and can prevent your kit from functioning properly.
- If using the D-cell converter pack, switch to a 6-Volt which can give more amperage to the motor.
- 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. Sometimes you can get a defective battery. Lead acid batteries can also develop a bad cell over time.
- Attempt a reset by pressing and holding the reset button on the backside of your timer, where the wires come out, for 30 seconds.
- If using a solar panel, ensure that the battery is connected to the feeder before you plug in or clip on the solar unit.
- Ensure the spin plate is securely on the shaft and you are using the recommended feed.
- Cold weather will impact your batteries and can cause them to lose power or freeze.
