Instructions

Installation Instructions & Setup:

To insert the batteries (2 x AA size 1.5V alkaline batteries), open the Housing Cover by applying light pressure on the Locking Clip. Pay attention to the proper polarity of the batteries. Note: DO NOT use rechargeable batteries.

Closing the Housing Cover:

Insert the upper edge of the Drive Unit and pivot downwards until the lock engages.

Changing Batteries:

If the symbol "LO" appears on the Display, it means that the batteries are almost empty. The feeding procedure will still be carried out, but the batteries should be replaced. After about three days, the entire Display will blink and the device will shut off automatically in order to prevent the Feed Container from stopping in a downward position.

Programming:

The "Feed Mode" offers 3 options, which are shown in the upper line of the Display, to the right of the Feed Digits (1-4). No Arrow = The Time is stored but no feeding occurs. 1 Arrow = The Feed Container rotates once. 2 Arrows = The Feed Container rotates twice with a 1 minute interval. This extends the time interval for feeding without engaging additional feeding times.

General Programming Rules: MODE switches initially between the current time and the feeding times (1 to 4 consecutively). The current time is displayed whenever you see the blinking arrows. The feeding times are differentiated by digits (1-4) appearing on the upper section of the Display. SET allows the displayed times to be changed. With MODE, the displayed time can be changed between Hours and Minutes, as well as the Feeding Mode. The Time and Feeding Mode can be set to a higher number with the "+" Button. SET stores the programmed time and scrolls to the next feeding time to be programmed. Example: After the batteries have been inserted, the Time begins at "00:00" and the Arrows will blink at one second intervals.

Setting the Current Time: Press SET > "Hours" will blink and the desired number can be entered with the "+" Button. Then press MODE > "Minutes" will blink and the desired number can be entered with the "+" Button. Finally, press SET > Current time has now been entered.

Programming Feeding Time 1: Press MODE > Feeding Time 1 is displayed as "00:00" with the digit "1" on the upper section of the LCD. Then press SET > "Hours" will blink and the desired number can be entered with the "+" Button. Then press MODE > "Minutes" will blink and the desired number can be entered with the "+" Button. Then press MODE again > The Digit "1" will blink. Press the "+" Button once for a single ration and press the "+" Button twice for a double ration. Finally, press SET > Feeding Time 1 has now been entered. The next feeding time will be displayed and it can be programmed in the same manner.

Manual Operation For feeding outside the programmed times, press the "EHEIM" Manual Feeding Button to manually trigger the rotation of the Food Container.

Filling Take out the Food Container and remove the cover on the back. Clean the Drum, making sure it is dry before filling it with food. Place the cover back on and insert the Drum unit onto the Axis. The Automatic Feeder is recommended for dry fish foods such as flake food and granules. DO NOT use for live or freeze dried foods.

Feeding Amount Adjust the Sliding Cover on the Food Container to control the amount of food dispensed. For larger amounts, program the Feeder for double portion.

Positioning Place the Automatic Feeder so the food can fall freely into the aquarium. Be sure not to cover the air-intake opening.

  • Good Fish Feeder

    By on

    I was going on vacation and needed fish feeders quickly. I purchased 2 from another pet store and they were useless! I did a little more research and found these at Chewy. The good news is that they arrived 2 days before I was leaving so I was able to try them out, which allowed to go on vacation knowing that my fish would be fed. They work exactly as described. I have top feeders & they seem to recognize the sound of the cup rotating and come up to the top to get their food. I love Chewy because their products are a little less than brick and mortar stores. Everything that I have order thus far as arrived the very next day!! Great online store, great prices, great service - that's CHEWY I was going on vacation and needed fish feeders quickly.

  • The one and only!

    I've been away from home shorter and longer periods. The longest was a 16 days. I came home all the fish were alive and thriving. I even had fry from my black neon tetra's they were sucked up and swimming behind the filter, they are still alive and swimming free in a 5 gallon. Buy Eheim ! I have 2 of them one for my 10 gallon and one for my 20.

  • Works great!!!!

    By on

    We go this for while we were gone for 5 days for Thanksgiving. Our fish were fine when we got home and even the babies are growing. So looks like they all got enough food. Easy to set up and works great with pellets and flakes. Would recommend for anyone. You'll love it and find it a great addition to your aquarium equipment.

  • Stopped Working after Four Months

    By on

    At first I thought this feeder was great. It took a little while to figure the proper opening for the right amount of food etc. After four months it completely stopped working. I went through all the troubleshooting step by step, batteries, etc. Drum will not rotate. Not even with the manual push button. Four months is not acceptable for something to stop functioning. The worst is when I called Eheim customer service and got a recording saying "this phone number is not accepting calls" (888-343-4662). Totally unacceptable, and a total waste of money.

  • Works well

    By on

    I purchased this auto feeder for a 15 gallon tank i set up at work. The reason for only 4 stars is the size. It was very hard to figure out placement due to how big it is. There isnt alot of room on top once you added a light. Other than that i love it. I love the fact that i can slide the opening to control the exact amount of food to be dropped.

  • Works as described.

    I have a goldfish so we use flakes in it. The instructions say for flakes, they should be crushed, this absolutely true. It works good though. We bought this so that we could vacation without worry, we are pleased with its performance. I would recommend this item for regular or occasional use.

  • Great Product

    By on

    I didn't know this item existed until I saw it on Chewy. It was perfect timing too because I was leaving to go visit family out of state and did not have to ask someone to feed the fish daily for me while I was gone. I programmed it to feed my fish twice daily. If you have more fish than I do you might need to set more feeding times but you can set up to 6 different times. I was worried about using the clamp on the tank because my fish tanks have lids with a feeding door that opens, however this automatic feeder also comes with velcro strips, so I fastened it to the lid with the feed door open. Worked awesome! It is also battery operated so you don't have to worry about if the power goes I didn't know this item existed until I saw it on Chewy.

With that same logic I would just change the batteries before traveling no matter what. Definitely recommend! … more

  • works really well

    By on

    This auto feeder is really good if you want to grow your fish faster. Feed them little portions frequently. Also you can tape the opening to make it smaller if it dispenses too many pellets. For me at notch 4, it dispenses too much, but too little at notch 3. I taped the opening 1/2 way at notch 4 and it dispenses the perfect amount. I could have also had it at notch 3 and had the drum rotate twice and avoid the tape all together. Overall an excellent feeder, I personally own two of them.

  • Not what it’s made out to be.

    By on

    I watched the review of this and read a lot of wonderful reviews. It is easy to set up but not easy to use. It says it works will all types of food. Be careful because with pellets even the smallest opening drops a lot of food! I had to clean my tank twice after one day of trying to use this feeder. We got two of them for two tanks for when we go on vacation but I’m pretty sure we can’t use them due to them being kind of unstable and just not really made well for pellet food.
