Default Feeder Problem

I have the Buccees All Season stand and fill. It wasn’t spinning. I replaced the timer and put a new battery on it. It spun once but real slow. Tested again and it barely spun. 3rd test on and nothing happens. Any ideas?

I'd say bad motor. I had a similar problem once. Pulled the motor and checked it out. All rusty inside. Clearly, somehow, had been underwater at some point.

Go straight from battery to the motor and that will tell you motor or not.

Its the motor. I've had to replace a couple of them. Think its another design flaw of those feeders. All the pressure pushing down on it wears them out faster.
