Any experience with these. Had one that the lease that hasnt been used in a couple years. Put a 6v in it and clock turned on, test motor and throws corn great. But when I program it, it wont go off at set time. Has 6 feed option times. And each one has an on and an off.

I had an old one given to me several years ago that did almost the same thing, but with a digital timer. I called the manufacture and they sold me a new timer for like $15 plus a few dollars for shipping, so you may try that. You can also just buy a new timer that will fit in the unit, if you want to do that.

Depending on upgrade cost, may want to consider one as mentioned above, I have "the timer" in 12v from Kevin (TxAg) on here and it is crazy good.

Through google found the owners manual for this older model. When you test the motor it displays "on". SO when i would test it I left it like that because i want it on. Apparently your supposed to press again to display "off". Also the on/off times for each feeding need to be 1 minute apart. Ill try it out again this weekend.

Sounds like the Monarch, it's not ON until the display reads OFF.

You are correct, on the old models you have to set the off time 1 minute later than the on time. For the feed times that you do not use, leave the on and off time blank (actually I believe it was dashes).

And yes after you test the motor, hit test again to turn it off.

The ON and OFF indicate the timer's internal motor switch, usually a pair of big transistors. It's actual run time is controlled with a external control/knob. That's how I figure it anyhow.
