For our big yard feeder, i bought a The Timer a couple of years ago. It's on a battery and solar cell, but every now and then, even fully charged, it'll quit feeding. I go push the reset and redo the times, and we're back in business.

Any of you guys had a similar problem?

Not yet. I own four of them. They have great warranty program.

This may foolish but have you changed the"AA's" lately in the timer? I had a similar problem with a HCR timer a few years ago. The 12 volt was fully charged but I forgot to change the AA's for a couple of years. If nothing else contact contact the company.

This ^^^^^ then check the gap or spacing between spinner plate and funnel. Only takes a piece of corn to wedge in there to not allow it to feed.

Called "The Timer guys and they are recalling timers built within the last 6 months due to timer reseting.
