1. Operation a. Turn unit upside down and switch on timer. Check that the gears inside the timer are turning .1) NOTE: low batteries may turn the gears, but not operate the product. b. Open lids by aligning the notch on the timer knob with the lid pointer. C20 only: Remove food bowls and insert pre-frozen icepack. c. Replace filled food bowl(s), push down lid and set desired delay by rotating timer knob. Place unit in required position.
2. Testing your feeder before use Your feeder is manufactured from top quality materials and is assembled to comply with rigorous quality standards. Consequently, it should give you many years dependable use. However, before using for the first time you may wish to ensure its correct operation without food by setting 24 hours delay and checking that the lid(s) open 24 hours later.
3. Especially for cats We suggest you introduce your cat to its feeder by following the steps below: a. Place your cat's food in the food bowl without using the timer. (Try using his favourite food to encourage him to get used to the feeder.) b. When he seems happy eating in this way, place the unit in the position where he will find the food when you are away (see Section 7). c. Finally use the timing mechanism, but try not to watch over your cat - if he knows you're around he may wait for personal attention! If leaving your cat for a weekend, don't forget to make suitable toilet arrangements for it. Kittens should not be left alone for long periods without someone to check periodically that all is well.
4. Especially for dogs Most small dogs will readily adapt to an automatic feeder, but you are recommended to supervise your dog's first few encounters to ensure that it is unlikely to damage the unit - which may be a problem with puppies. When leaving your dog, don't forget to make adequate toilet arrangements for it. Dogs, and particularly puppies, should not be left alone for long periods without someone to check periodically that all is well. For extra stability the feeder may be attached to a wooden baseplate as follows: a. Remove food bowl(s). Break out the two moulded-in retaining clips by inserting a screw into each hole and rocking from side to side. b. Place feeder in desired position on wooden board and replace clips in holes with the flat side of the clip uppermost. Screw clips to board in this position. c. Turn clip through 90 degrees to lock feeder to wooden base. Turn back through 90 degrees to unlock.
5. Hints on food storage Your feeder is designed for use with all pet foods, milk and water. The C20 should always be used with its ice-pack unless the surrounding temperature is less than 5°C (40°F). To freeze the ice-pack before use, place in the deep freeze compartment of a refrigerator for at least 6 hours. It is not possible to use an ice-pack with the C10, and if leaving canned food in very warm weather we recommend that the food be chilled in a refrigerator before placing in the feeder. When using your C10 or C20 feeder with wet food, ensure that the food comes from a freshly opened can/pack. If the weather is very warm, you are advised not to leave wet food for long periods and may prefer to serve dry food, which has better keeping qualities. If in doubt, please consult the manufacturer of your cats’ wet food.
6. Setting the Time Delay The C10 and C20 feeders are designed to feed your pet at its normal mealtimes, as these are the times it will generally visit its feeding place. With the C20 you can set any time delay up to 48 hours. Thus, if the time is 10 a.m. on a Saturday and you wish to serve one meal at 6 p.m. on Saturday and one at 8 a.m. on Sunday, you would set one of the timing knobs to 8 hours delay and the other to 22 hours. With the C10 you may serve one meal with a maximum of 24 hours delay.
7. Positioning of feeder Ideally, the feeder should be used indoors or in a garage or outbuilding, and should be placed in a cool corner shaded from sunlight with about 1" clearance at the back to allow the lid(s) to open fully. If necessary, however, it may be used out of doors provided that it is placed out of the sunlight and is sheltered from rain. Under no circumstances should moisture be allowed to get near the timing mechanism, so always site the feeder on a concrete slab or similar - not on grass.
8. Cleaning The C10 and C20 feeders are very easy to clean and normally only the bowls will require washing. The base unit, lids and lid lifting leavers can all be wiped with a soapy cloth. If required, lids may be removed for washing - simply pull out vertically from the base unit whilst pushing the lid upward using the finger cut-out at the rear of the lid moulding. Make sure that the lids are fully pushed home on reassembly. Under no circumstances should the base unit be immersed in water.
9. Batteries We recommend an Alkaline battery size 'AA' e.g. Duracell MN1500. This battery should last 12 months in continuous use. It is recommended to remove the battery when the feeder is not to be used for prolonged periods.
