FAQ: Basic Feeder Issues

(Q) What kind of feed should I use in my feeder?

(A) Whole kernel corn is recommended. Whole kernel corn mixed with soybeans or pellets is also effective for attracting deer.  Most feed types that are .25 inch and smaller can be feed thru the feeder.  NOTE: 1) When not mixed with corn, some pellet type feeds can take on moisture and clog the feeder.  2) Using salt based feeds or blends can corrode and rust parts of the feeder kit.

(Q) Why is there no Power?  Why is the plate spinning slowly? Why is the timer blanking out?

  1. Make sure you are using a good Energizer, Duracell, or Moultrie 6-Volt Battery. If using the D-cell converter pack, switch to the 6-Volt, which can give more amperage to the motor.
  2. If the battery is a rechargeable, make sure the battery is fully charged and working properly. 
  3. Cold weather will impact your batteries and can cause them to lose power or freeze. Please see additional information on Freezing Temperatures and Batteries
  4. If this does not resolve your issue please send in for testing.

(Q) Why is my feeder running continuously?

  1. This is usually a result of reversed polarity. Make sure the battery is hooked up properly with the positive/positive and the negative/negative.
  2. If the battery is hooked up properly and the unit is still running, the actual battery could be defective and will need to be replaced.
