1. Our automatic pet
feeders are permanently
2. With the exception
of FF-4 & FF-5 which are Solar/Battery Powered, the automatic pet
feeders DO REQUIRE
a source of regular 120VAC (NOT
less than 110VAC). Temporary loss of power will alter the feeding time.
(Time clock may have to be re-set.). In critical situations, the user
should provide power back-up. (See accessories &
3. Use warm soapy
water to clean surfaces, but unplug the power first. DO NOT USE STRONG SOLVENTS LIKE LACQUER
4. We recommend that
you use shop vacuums to clean the inside.
5. If equipped with
"auto water," follow the instructions supplied.
6. Do NOT remove the protective rear
cover, as "high voltage” is present & serious injury could
7. Keep feeder &
pellets DRY! (Weather
resistant enclosure is available). Moist or wet pellets can
"stick" together when they dry out! This may form a hard ball or
clump which will jam the motor. Motor over load is apparent by a clicking
sound. If this occurs, REMOVE ALL
PELLETS & re-test the feeder. Make sure NO foreign object has fallen
into the feeder or was not in the source of pellets.
8. Route the power
cord BEHIND the
feeder & directly to the power outlet.
9. Disconnect the feeder
when not in use to avoid OVERFLOW!
10. Feeder lid is
bonded to limit access by pet & other critters.
11. To avoid spilling,
while moving, or transporting, stuff outlet hole with a rag or paper.
12. Oversized pellets,
larger than 1/2" will NOT
dispense properly & may cause motor to go into overload. CONTINUOUS OVERLOAD WILL DAMAGE THE MOTOR (NOT
COVERED BY WARRANTY).
13. Round or nearly
round pellets will dispense better than other shapes & cause less
14. If a dispensing
problem occurs, CALL THE FACTORY
BEFORE RETURNING FEEDER. We can solve most problems over
the phone or internet. Shipping the feeder back & forth is HARD ON YOU & THE FEEDER!
