Default “The timer” issues

Anyone had issues with them running fast. Mine have gained about 20mins over a 3-4 week period. I adjusted feed times to the clock to see if it will stay

Just checked mine today. They were about 10 min fast from the last time I checked them a month ago. Not a big deal to me.


Sierracharlie out…

They had a recall for a while. Also had mine burn all the corn out to. They have problems but usually the least amount of problems

I’ve been doing a test- one feeder I have The Timer in, and the other, I have the regular All Seasons timer in there. Same exact boxes. The regular All Seasons timer is just as good. Going on 4 years now.

The Texas Hunter timer is great. I’ve got several that are twenty years old, still keep good time, and I’ve only ever had one fail. If my The Timer fails, that’s what I’ll replace it with.

Yep... They have had this issue in the last few years and also the time losing issue.. Had one empty a feeder on our place also.. 1500lbs.. Supposedly it was due to junk, Chinese, components that are no longer used..

I had a box of 10 and had 4 bad ones out of ten. They get some bad batches in at times.all of these the screen would freeze up.
